Um, Hi.

Hi World!

Remember me? I used to write a lot. Or I at least used to update this at times. I’ve decided to go ahead and try to get back into posting on here to keep in touch with friends but also to try and attempt to document poor D’s life. I at least had C documented until he was born. Poor D hasn’t hardly had any posts. ๐Ÿ™‚

So speaking of Sir Adorable, he has been talking up a storm lately. He has two blankies that are his loveys and he can’t say “blankie” so he officially has dubbed them “KeeKees”… along with Kee Kee comes his “Sahsee” or as you might recognize it, a Paci.

I am so thankful that we were able to sell our old house so easily. And even as blessedly easy as it was, it has still been an incredibly stressful few months. If I get REALLY inspired maybe I’ll type up howย  crazy the 24 hours around the closing ended up being. Hopefully the new owners are enjoying it as much as we did for the last 5 years. The kids are missing it though… well C is, anyway.ย  I searched through old pictures to find a picture of our house before we had it painted…

and more recently it has looked like this:

Now we are hanging at my moms for a bit before we move into our new house! So for now I say good-bye as a certain C wants to go practice a swim!

No time to post! Just enjoy the pictures! We had a great time ๐Ÿ™‚

{D} 5 Months Old!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So I’m totally behind on keeping up with the blog. And with my little guy’s progress!

Here’s the scoop! He’s the sweetest, happiest baby. He hardly makes a peep. I can’t complain. Except for that whole sleeping through the night thing. But hey, no one is perfect! ๐Ÿ™‚

He rolled (tummy to back) a few times one day just after he turned 4 months- but he hasn’t done it again! And he rolls all the way on his side (back-belly) but not all the way over.

He LOVES his mama, he tolerates tummy time… He does well on long Car trips, we discovered last weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the pics from 4 months that I never posted… (okay, and apparently the 5 month ones posted again here too… technical difficulties!)

Trying to be better at keeping up!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

{3 Months Old} (ok not really)

Yes, D is actually 4 months old. I’m a bit behind with the updates here, so I’ll just go ahead and post these pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

D {2 Months…ok, 2.5}

I better bang out this post before he gets to be 12 weeks on Friday!!:)

2 Month Stats

11.6 pounds (50th percentile)

22.3 in long (26 percentile- we’re short!)

Head Circumference-16in (68th percentile- big head, short body:))

He continues to not sleep through the night… I continue to be a zombie and a coffee addict.

He’s getting more and more smiley. He loves his play gym thing and his bouncy chair– he looks so proud of himself when he moves a toy.

He isn’t very chatty-he mainly reserves his cooing for when he is eating, and when your attention is solely on him. (*which as a second child, is probably only 15 minutes a day… poor guy) But when he’s chatty, it’s super cute!

He often looks tense when he’s drifting off to sleep- like he has his little “dukes” up (looking ready to box). It’s quite charming!

Speaking of charming- I brought him to my hair appointment this week and the ladies at the salon just loved him- but apparently, he prefers blondes! He was very smiley at a “marilyn-esque” pictureย  the whole time we were there. ๐Ÿ™‚

He’s so cute… ๐Ÿ™‚

And lastly, a comparison:

More next time! *maybe* ๐Ÿ™‚

{Updates}

So of course, I’m behind. Haven’t blogged in almost a month! So here’s some quick updates!

Me & B:

Project 365: FAIL. I was doing great until my camera’s card filled up. Then it took me until yesterday to empty it. (New) Goal: to start again tomorrow! ๐Ÿ™‚

Weight loss-WIN! B and I both started using My Fitness Pal (has a GREAT app for the iphone!) and we’ve both lost 10 pounds already in the month of January! I’m going to try an add a widget to my blog so you can follow my progress. Wahoo! Goals: Keep it up! Start Exercising Regularly.

Parenting Two Kids: I think we are doing pretty great, if I do say so myself! Of course there is plenty of room for improvement :). I’ve taken the two kids to the grocery store twice by myself (thank you Beco Baby carrier!) and we manage to get to all of C’s events on time-ish. What little blessings they are! Goal-keep them breathing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Budgeting: Pretty proud of us. Talking about $, planning, budgeting- basically anythng $ related made me really anxious. Well 4 years into marriage we had a great night of planning in the beginning of January and stuck to our budget really well! We have a date night set up to do it again this weekend! Goal: keep it up in February!

Thirty-One : This is my new project! (like I needed another one!) I discovered 31 mainly through my friend Nikki. I hosted a show and discovered I wanted to buy absolutely everything- so I knew I had to become a consultant! I am SO SO SO Excited to be a brand new consultant. I love that this is a Christian based company (The name Thirty-One is from the Proverbs 31 woman- a woman I’d like to be more like!) I love the products- they are helping me become that proverbs 31 lady by being more organized and lovely! I’ll probably post more later on this one, but let me know if you’re interested in hearing more before i get around to blogging!!

C:

Continues to be generally adorable, Two year old ish on some days, and comedic relief. (Example: she just told me she’s an “aster not” while wearing a drum on her head) She is such a joy. She loves loves loves her little brother. She’s always bringing him his B.bear (BB2).ย  She asks where he is, and if he’s sleeping in his “Hungry Cah-piwwer” bed. (some day I’ll finish his nursery and post pics… ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) We have hopes of potty training soon. We’ll see!

She counts forwards and backwards which is pretty impressive in my book. She knows certain letter sounds. She finally knows our first names and no longer thinks my other name is “Hon”! She continues to love dance class and soccer and all her friends and family. She is a very loving little girl, generous with her hugs. She makes my heart full!

D: will be TWO MONTHS OLD on Thursday! I’ll save his updates for then. Fingers crossed that I write one. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pictures next time! ๐Ÿ™‚
