sick!

Kate came down with her first cold this week. It's so sad. She can hardly breathe out her nose, she sneezes non-stop and her eye water so much it looks like she is crying. We are doing everything we can to get her better and enjoying this snuggle time. It's so frustrating because we have tried so hard to keep her away from people who are sick and haven't been taking her places where there are lots of germs. Oh well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. She has such a great attitude. Never cries (only when I'm cleaning out her nose!), giving us lots of smiles, songs and conversations. I've been keeping her in the "nap nanny" for naps and after she eats to help everything drain. That thing is wonderful. She is napping in it now. Chris and I are also fighting this off. He is home from work today crashed on the couch and I am fighting it along with keeping the house going and taking care of everyone. It should be a rule: moms are not allowed to get sick! It's hard because someone has to go buy food, keep the laundry going, wash the dishes, make meals, take care of the kitten, yadda yadda yadda. I will be joyful through this and take care of my family and pray that I do not get any worse than I am so I can continue to serve them. Hope you all are staying well. Wash those hands!

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!
