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.

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

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…

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…
