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!

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…
