11 months

 We're almost there.
 We are in Kate's last month of being an infant.
 Our first born is growing up way too fast.
 We are trying to soak in everything.
 There just doesn't seem to be enough time.
 She is changing daily; physically and developmentally.
 Kate is extremely smart.
 Nothing gets past her.

Kate is now eating pretty much the same foods we eat, except only the healthy ones.
I am super strict and cautious about what we give her.
I prefer to stick with organic and all natural foods.
I'm sure I'll grow out of it one day soon but for now her little body is so pure and I want to keep it that way for a while.
Her eating habits are helping ours! :)

Kate has developed a personality bigger than she is.
She is hilarious.
Her new favorite thing to do (besides walking) is to take her baby stroller around the house and collect as many things as she can. She puts them all in her stroller and then ditches it.
Last night I walked into my closet to find her stroller in there with my calculator in it. She enjoys hiding the remotes so they are now stored in a safe place.
I can't begin to describe the joy she brings to our life.
Each day is a whole new story and a whole new adventure.

Kate is a total dream baby.
We had a rough start but that's almost a blur now.
Kate's party planning is in full swing.
The invites were mailed out today.
116 people on the list.
I can hardly wait for it to all come together.
I am busy finishing up some lose ends and working on some home made touches.
oh yeah and trying to keep up with this one....

Happy 11 months Kate Marie!
 You are soooooo loved!

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!
