152 days young


I'm pretty sure I just blogged about my boy turning 4 months and here we are pretty much 2 days later and he's 5 months already! What in the world?! The days seem to be going by faster and I seem to be aging and looking more exhausted as each one passes. What's up with that?

Five months young and the {littlest} joy of our lives.


William Allan Marshall Andrews, how we adore you. Our little man is now 16 pounds even! His big sister better watch out, he's catching up! Kate was only 18 pounds at a year so this guy seems huge to me!

A few new firsts for Will, he has started "solids". I pureed avocados and sweet potatoes this week. Here's how it went down...

He loved the avocados & I gagged the entire time I fed them to him.

I don't think he was a fan

We'll try those again next week. I forgot how much fun I had making Kate baby food. Is it bad that I wanted to add some butter and brown sugar to his sweet potatoes and go to town? Other than solids, he is quite the steam roller these days. The boy loves to roll, mainly because he hates tummy time as much as I dislike veggies that aren't covered in butter and cheese.

The biggest change this month is we have transitioned him from his precious Moses basket to his crib. ::::insert tears:::: I dreaded this time with Kate. Obviously, since I didn't put her in her crib until she was 6 months! We have our room back and all of our little bedrooms are now filled. A new stage, exciting and a bit sad because I'm pretty sure I just gave birth and they don't stay little long enough. My sweet Will, the happiest baby I've ever known.


Happy day, 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!
