just the 3 of us

Last weekend was perfect, minus the insane heat! We actually had a weekend all to ourselves. We all slept in, ate delicious breakfasts, napped, shopped and enjoyed our home. Kate is now eating big girl food (mixed with her baby food). Not sure who is having more fun with it. It is really weird seeing her eat pancakes, bananas and some of the same things we eat. We're slowly introducing her to new foods. She is definitely not a fan of eggs. I've made them a couple times for her and she picks them up and gags. Not sure if its the texture or what but it's hilarious. I think I'm going to wait a while to try them again.


We spent Saturday afternoon by our pool and
 came back for another swim after church on Sunday

.She is definitely a water baby.
I made Southern cheese grits and shrimp for dinner on Saturday night. They were delicious and made us wish we were sitting around the table with the family in Tennessee again.

 Kate joined us for dinner at the table in her high chair.
 She was very proud to be at the head of the table.

Kate also had her last ride in her infant seat last weekend.
She enjoyed it as you can see...
Here she is in her big girl seat on our way to Disneyland
We went to Disneyland last night for dinner & dessert.
Kate is a fan. She loves the lights, the sounds & people watching.
She was perfect!

Thankful for a quiet weekend and lots of family time.
 We live for little moments like this...

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!
