4 months....really?

Today we celebrated Kate's 4 month birthday! Time is flying! She is getting so big! Cooing and squealing up a storm. Love love love it! She is so close to rolling over. Our lives are going to change when she learns how to do that! I have been reading books to Kate and she is so fascinated by it. She stares at each page. She's a smart cookie already. Today she also had her first bowl of rice cereal and loved it! She ate the whole thing- that's my girl! Life with Kate is awesome. She is getting on a schedule which is so great. The only downside of it is I am having to stay home a lot more right now to establish nap times and get her on a schedule. She sleeps great in the car and on the go but I am working hard to get her on a sleep schedule and so far so good! It sure would be nice if babies came with a manual! ha ha. Kate is loving her new "brother". Bentley thinks she is the greatest thing ever. He snuggles next to her and she shows her love by grabbing him by the neck (no joke) I had to rescue him the other day because she had his neck hair in her hands and was poking his eyes. Poor little guy. He didn't seem to mind and all and was purring when I came to his rescue. He better learn now! That's another thing Kate is really good at these days, pulling hair. OUCH! Not a fan of that new habit. We are enjoying each day and cherishing every minute with her. She is such a miracle. Love you Kate Marie...

mmm rice cereal!

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
