8 months

Our girl is 8 months young...
Kate is a professional at crawling now.
She crawls at lightening speed when we chase after her.
The games begin.

She is our little mighty mouse...
Her new favorite thing to do it stand herself up on anything she can get her hands on.
She thinks standing and walking along the edge of the couch is the coolest thing ever.
Pretty sure we'll have a walker on our hands in no time.

Her first little words were said this past week.
YaYa and Dada
SO stinkin cute!
Car rides are her favorite.
She sings and says "yayadadadadadadayaaaayaaada" every time we drive.
Kate sleeps 12 hours a night.
She takes 3-4 naps throughout the day.
She is quite the smiler, charmer, partier...
we are pretty sure she is the best baby ever.

Oh, Kate how we love you. Happy 8 months baby girl!

**On another Kate note** The momma and I planned out the majority of Kate's 1st birthday party last week in the desert. It's going to be pretty awesome. I am already working on things and just finished typing the guest list. We're keeping it "small". Small for us is just family and close family friends. Grand total: 100 guests on the list. Yikes. Oh well, you only get a 1st birthday once and we're going to make it a big deal! Hey, we like to party.

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…

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! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
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. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
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…
