8 months and smitten.

Our baby boy is turning into a little man.
I am smitten.
Can you see why?

 

 This boy kills me!!

Just when I think he can't get any gooshier, he does.

Our sweet boy is not only sitting like a pro he is now..
CRAWLING!

He's a crawling maniac! 

I can't get over it.
 My head can't wrap around the fact how fast babies grow.
I could have 6 (which is not going to happen) & still be shocked.


Will is a precious baby boy with the sweetest spirit.
He loves to snuggle, give wet open mouth kisses & sleep!

This boy who I thought would never sleep through the night is now an incredible sleeper (thanks to sleep training). He sleeps from 7:30pm-7:30am usually waking up once around 5:30am for a bottle. He takes a morning nap and a really long afternoon nap. 

And the boy who wouldn't eat solids is now packing it away and begs for our food, which he also loves.
He will soon be eating us out of the house.



The boy now has 3 teeth and has 3 more coming in as I type. 
(another reason why I'm glad he's only taking bottles now!)

William loves music and is white just like his momma.
Our poor children have no chance at having any moves thanks to their parents.

He just learned to clap and it's one of the cutest things he's done yet.
He claps non stop when he gets excited.

Oh, and the boy has enough hair for spikes now!

Be still my heart.


Happy 8 months precious son.
You have rocked our world & filled it with so much joy.

I am so thankful that the Lord chose me to be your momma.
Love you angel face!

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..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

Family Room DIY makeover

Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! 
Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. 
Before


I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown.  I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. 






Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. 


Then it was onto the fireplace.  Before






Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. 
We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures.  And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass from amazon.
