Hurricane Kate

Becoming a mom has made me realize that it's OK to have a messy house. I am a natural neat & clean freak. Always have been. Now it is normal for our house to be covered in toys throughout the day with books scattered about. We are very careful with the amount of toys we buy for Kate because the last thing we want is for her to #1. think she can have anything she wants #2. our house is not a toy store and #3. I don't want to pick up anymore toys! We have been rotating her toys out with new ones and it seems to be working well.

Kate banging on the door yelling "dada! dada!"
He walked through that door an hour later and the look on her face was precious.
This is our living room on a good day.
 All of Kate's toys fit in a wooden basket
with the exception of a few big ones.
Kate has a love for Barney
Oh Lord, help us!
Kate's reading corner usually looks like this.
She goes through each book and then ditches them.
At the end of the day Chris and I go around to clean up after Hurricane Kate.
 Most nights we can't help but laugh.
The things she takes around with her and the places she put them are hilarious.
After a long day of playing this is what we cherish
a long peaceful 11 hours of sleep

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!
