7 months

Son shine,

 It's amazing to think that you are now 7 months young! You're changing daily and growing up to be the most handsome little guy since your daddy. You had your first sleep over with both grandparents when momma and dadda went out of town. We missed you and sissy like crazy but knew you were in great hands. You also went on your first airplane ride and as we walked off the plane people made remarks that they didn't even know a baby was on board! That airplane took us to Washington where you got to meet your great grandparents, your great aunt and uncle and your only cousin! We are blessed with a family who is filled with love baby boy, never forget that. You are so loved.



A couple big milestones were hit this month:

1. The grandparents finally got you to eat solids while we were away and now you eat like a champ! Breakfast, lunch and dinner! Yippee!

2. You are rocking and rolling and I'm terrified. Seeing you on your little knees rocking and trying to move takes me back to your big sister and she was on the move a week or two later!

3. You are SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT! Can I get a hallelujah?? After 2 or 3 nights of sleep training (crying it out) you are now sleeping like a charm and even taking longer naps. It is glorious son. We are so thankful that you caught on fast just like your sister did.



We packed up the baby swing, the bouncy chair and a few other baby items and I did my best to hold back the tears. You are growing up SO fast Son. I just want to freeze this time with you and sister and stay here a little while longer. My heart is so full and though most days are long, messy and crazy I can't help but find joy and even laughter through all the craziness.

This is what life is all about!


Happy Days!

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. 

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! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
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. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
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…
