The Nursery

Williams nursery is 95% complete! Just a couple finishing touches need to happen like hang his canvas, a few pictures and lay down the rug (which I am keeping rolled up until Christmas is over). I need a couple more accessories for the hutch and then we should be good to go!
All of his clothes, blankets, burpies and accessories have been washed and put away. We are having SO much fun preparing for his arrival! I'm so thankful for my parents who painted his room and helped me put it all together. Just a few more weeks and we'll have a little guy to bring this room to life!

he has the sweetest little wardrobe...

Ahh, can hardly wait to meet this little guy! His room is so peaceful and calming. Just how a bedroom should be, especially a nursery. It's simple, elegant and boyish which are all the things I was going for. I didn't realize how much shopping I've done for him until I washed it all and put it away! Such joy it brings me and the joy is only going to multiply when I see his sweet face in everything.

Next up on the list is pack his new diaper bag, get the car seat ready and installed and set up the Moses basket. I think I'll give myself a few weeks for that happens though! I'll update more as we progress but I'm thrilled with what has been accomplished thus far. 

I never saw us having a son, my heart is overflowing with gladness as I look down the hall and see our sweet girls room and her baby brothers nursery two doors down. I don't think I will ever find the words to explain the joy I have knowing we get to raise a daughter and a son.

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!
