I got it!

 Kate's face and joy this morning when she saw the Christmas tree all lit up in the living room was priceless. She was running around the house squealing with excitement. It was hard to get a picture of her standing still, that is why all these pictures are blurry. We have already had to move a couple ornaments up a bit higher. This could be a long month!

Busted!
She got to eat her breakfast by the tree

Remember the face I told y'all last night about? The one that is not very nice or pretty? Well, I got a pretty good picture of it this morning. Chris was brushing Kate's hair to the side and she apparently didn't like it so she flashed the look. Man, does it hurt!


I don't know where the kid comes up with these things. She knows exactly when to flash it.
I also forgot to mention that Kate now knows how to open and close all the doors in the house. Nothing is safe anymore! I need to make a recording of "no no, please don't touch". I also need to learn to control my laughter when Kate gets into things shes not supposed to and when she flashes the scowl. I can't control myself. Chris and I are smashing our faces into the couch or against the wall to hide our smiles. This isn't working very well. How do you get mad at someone who is so small and gooshie with the cutest little voice and comes running to give you kisses when she knows she has done something wrong!? Love!

Oh Happy Day! Thankful for y'all!

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…

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!
