Big girl

(Oh by the way, this post is referring to me)....

Yes, I have finally put my big girl panties on and have moved Kate into her beautiful room in her crib. I have been putting this off forever because I love falling asleep looking over at Kate in her moses basket. Watching her sleep is the most peaceful thing ever. I told myself that I would move her when she turned 5 months. That came and went and I wasn't ready. I prayed and prayed for the courage and for all my fears of her being in her room by herself to go away and to be filled with peace. That happened this weekend. We got Kate all ready for bed, rocked her, prayed over her, gave her good night kisses and laid her down. She did AMAZING! She slept from 10:30pm-6:30am (no peeps). I fed and changed her and put her back down at 6:45am and she slept until 9:30am. Such a good feeling. I have the video monitor right next to my bed which helps. I watched her on there until I fell asleep and didn't wake up once to watch the monitor. I was filled with so much peace. She is finally napping in her bed and doing really well with those too. I feel like a weight has been lifted off of me. It may not sound like a big deal, but it is. It's a big step for us. I guess it's time to put away the moses basket and store it for the next babe. (it is a must have for all the new mommas)..... How is our little 6.8 pound baby already this big??

Go mama, go! You will be thanking yourself later! I still look at Abby when she sleeps too, but it is so good for them to have their own space!

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…
