Kate Marie is 3!

Three years ago the Lord blessed us with an incredible gift on a rainy October day.

That gift was you, Katelyn Marie.

I sort of knew what I was in for when becoming a mommy, well actually I had no idea. I did not know that your heart could grow so much and love someone so tiny and whom you just met! Katelyn Marie, you rocked our world on the 7th of October in 2009 and our world hasn't been the same since.

You are so full of love and joy, you have a zest for life that makes me want to see the world the way you do! Your heart is so soft and tender. I know where you go that from. You are a sweet friend, the best big sister, you adore old people and truly care for others. You are our little pistol and have a stubborn side which is a daily reminder that you're mine! Girl, the fits you can throw are impressive. But really I'm not impressed. You constantly want to learn, singing and dancing is a passion of yours which I love and once again, sorry I passed down my white chocolate moves to you.

Being your mommy is one of my greatest joys in life. Each day with you brings new wonders and adventures, you are just what we needed. You love getting dressed up and being girly but you are a total tom-boy at heart. You love getting out in the dirt, gardening and being silly and crazy as any 3 year old does!

I haven't stopped smiling since I found out we were expecting our first baby and when we found out you were a girl the excitement went through the roof. I knew I would have a girlfriend for life and I pray that as you grow older and become a young woman we will always remain close. 

You are precious, Katelyn Marie. 
Daddy and I love you with everything that's within us.

Happy Day, Peanut!

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!
