Oh my Kate

Our little one is a character. We can't get over her personality and the little things she does that are absolutely hilarious. Kate is getting bigger, stronger, smarter and cuter as the days fly by.
Her new favorite things to do are:
* stand on the scale every morning while I get ready and pull out all our bath towels. Awesome. As of this morning she weighs 22.8 pounds. She's small but so mighty and solid.
* Run around the house with either laundry or blankets over her head. We try to discourage this but seriously, it's hilarious. Today she grabbed Chris' clean laundry and ran through the house for all of 40 seconds until she ran into the wall..
(sorry about the blurry picture, she was running)

Boom!

Kate's vocabulary is starting to expand..
Mama, Dada, Papa, baa (ball), doo doo (thank you), yo (hello), ree (tree)
We're working on water, kitty and hi right now.
It is so amazing teaching Kate and watching her grow.
Definitely has to be the most rewarding job out there!

Did I mention that Kate has a new look that she gives?
It's not pretty or nice but it is hilarious.
It's extra funny when she looks directly at you and does it.
I have tried to capture it and this is the best I can do for now.
It's this minus the smile and more of a scowl.
Sometimes she'll walk around the house with the look on her face for no reason.
 I seem to get the look the most because I am the one who is always wiping her face or putting pony tails in her hair. It's hard not to laugh.
 Oh the drama.

She wins the prize for "Drama Queen" in this house. She gets slumpy and mad over the silliest things. Today she was mad because she couldn't move the zipper on her purse. This is the ostrich pose.  She throws her head down on the floor and pouts. Right before she does this she normally holds her cheeks and whines.


















It's never boring here at our house. Our days are 100 times more joyful and crazy but absolutely wonderful. It is almost impossible to imagine what our life without Kate was like.
All of God's grace is in Kate's precious face.
We truly cannot get enough of her!

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!
