getting there!

No, not my weight. I haven't been on a scale in a while and I am not about to. I was horrible this week. Kate is the one who is doing amazing. We are finally getting on a dependable schedule!!! I have been working so hard at this and you have no clue how it thrills me to see her catching on! She's been amazing with sleeping through the night since 8 weeks but she's been a horrible napper. I just figured that she wasn't going to be a napper but....that has changed! She has been taking 3 naps a day and they are at least an hour and a half long each! Someone sing hallelujah!! I don't know what to do with all of this free time. Dishes. Vacuum. Laundry. Pay bills. Garden. Catch up on emails. Phone calls. Get dressed. Brush my hair and teeth. Make dinner. Snuggle on the couch with Bentley. Today I had time to do all of this during one nap! Needless to say there is no free time but I am able to get everything done and more that I want to throughout the day and it feels so good. I think we are finally getting over this colic hump. (Another hallelujah please!) She still has her moments but praise the Lord for this new stage. We are having way too much fun. It's so hard for me to hand Kate over to Chris and night because I just want to snuggle and eat her up but they of course need their snuggle time too. Daddy is her fav. I hear some squeals coming from her room, it's play time!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

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…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
