3 months young


Our William is possibly the happiest baby I've ever known. He is Mr. Mellow and holy cow has he captured my heart! I could not be more crazy over this boy! He is FILLED with smiles and is just starting to coo. We have some pretty awesome conversations. If someone overheard me talking to him they would probably think I'm crazy. This is one of my favorite ages, he's still tiny but is starting to interact and recognizes our faces and voices. SO much fun!  

This boy has two favorite things. Sleeping & Eating. They happen to be my favorite things too! He's been sleeping through the night since 8 weeks and he finally willingly took a bottle for the first time last night. He knows what he likes and it will be a miracle if he takes formula one day! He's chunkin' out and one of these days I'm going to eat one of those delicious rolls! Will weighed in at 14 pounds this week! He's going to pass his big sister up in no time who is only 29 pounds at 2 and a half!

Our little man is starting to teethe and is chewing on anything he can get in his mouth! He is also quite the drooler which his big sister was not! He is a major snuggle bug and I find it hard to put him down during the day. Will gave us his first belly laugh over the weekend when his daddy was tickling his tummy. The laughs quickly turned into grunts, clearly he was not entertained. He gets that from his momma. 

I am amazed daily at all the resemblances I see in his sweet face of ones I love. He has my grandpa Marshall's smile, looks like my uncle john did when he was a baby, and has Chris' eyes and eyebrows. One of these days I will post my baby picture and you'll see that he looks just like I did when I was a baby.

The Lord is so good and His timing could not have been more perfect in sending our Will to us. The joy that he has filled our hearts with along with his big sister is beyond what I deserve. I'm so thankful that I get to spend day in and day out with them. These days are passing by too fast and I am doing my very best to savor every moment with our two blessings. 

Happy 3 Months, Son!
Love you to the moon and back x121322

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…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
