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…

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!
