Catching Up & Instagram

Hello, my lovely readers! Just wanted to check-in since I haven't been able to blog recently. We moved into our new place and have just had a lot going on over here. I will be catching up on some posts next week, but wanted to remind everyone to follow me on Instagram. I use Instagram more than any of the other social networks. You can find the link to the right of this post at the top of my sidebar. Hope to see some of you there!
We also have some very exciting things happening so check in soon for more updates. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


Little Man Update

3 Months Old

 Little Man is now 3 months old. Time is flying by! Just like his older sister, he's maturing so quick. It's a good thing but then it also makes me sad because he just seems that much older at such a young age. Hubby likes to give me a hard time because I always said that we were probably going to have a little monster with this second baby since I was told that if your first baby was easy and really good, the second one would be the opposite. That you never get lucky twice. Well, we did and I am grateful every minute of every day for another smart, happy and loving baby.

Here are a few of the milestones Little Man has hit so far:

  • He sleeps 12-13 hours every night (you have no idea how grateful I am for that!)
  • He's holding his head very well and is already starting to sit with a little support.
  • He smiles constantly and has started to giggle loudly.
  • He's babbling all of the time now and thinks he's actually having conversations with people.
  • He loves to play and be talked to.
  • He loves to cuddle and has started giving kisses (mouth-wide-open, wet, slobbery kisses).
  • He's grasping better. He got a 'Taggies" for Easter and loves it.
  • He's trying to chew on everything...and slobbers a lot, too.
  • He discovered his feet!
  • He adores his big sister.
  • If you are eating in front of him, he will stare at you and move his mouth. I will talk to the doctor at his next check-up about starting solids.
  • He has learned to escape his swing and bouncer! He will lift his entire bottom and push himself down or he has started sitting up and will try to lean forward. Good thing those things have buckles!
  • He does not like to be covered and will kick like crazy until he has pushed his blanket off.

He's trying to escape!

I know the quality of a lot of these pictures isn't very good but the majority of them are cell phone pics (in some not-so-good lighting) and I just don't have the time to edit them all.

And here you can see some of his babbling...


Never mind the mess in the background, we're in the middle of packing.



Easter Recap 2014

Another holiday down. My goodness, time is flying by! And things are busier than ever. Punkin also had a birthday at the beginning of the month. I'll post more about that when I do the updates of the kiddos here in the next couple of days. I've decided to be really selective when it comes time to post photos. I thought about this at the beginning of the year. For New Year's, I was going to do a recap of the whole year in collage photos but the more I thought about it, the more I decided that I just don't feel comfortable posting so many of those pictures. I started an Instagram account a couple of months ago that I now use more than any other social media site so you can always go follow me there for more daily updates. As much as I love this blog and do my best to post regularly, I've realized that with everything I'm juggling right now, posting daily might not be possible. And I'm okay with that. It's all about priorities.

Easter was a lot of fun. I did some pictures of all the kiddos a few days before. Punkin colored and decorated her Easter eggs Saturday night. The plan for Sunday was church in the morning, lots of cooking, then dinner in the evening with my mom, grandma and siblings. Although the day didn't go quite as planned, it was still a great day.

Should have tucked his tie back in. Oops!

For dinner, I was in charge of bringing my famous deviled eggs (will post a recipe later) and cupcakes. I went all out with the cupcakes and made 4 different kinds! I used the leftover cupcake decorations (all edible-even the grass) to make goodie bags.

We ended the evening with the big egg hunt. Little Man even caught his very own egg!

Well, that was our Easter. Hope all of you lovely readers had a wonderful day as well!



A Little happiness to Brighten Your Day...

Later this week, I'll be doing update posts on the kiddos. Until then, here is a video of Little Man at 8 weeks. He finds it hysterical when we stick our tongues out at him and is already starting to copy us. I'm hoping he won't remember the whole sticking his tongue out thing later on but it is what it is already, I guess. And he's copying everything he is able to at the moment. If we put our arms up, he puts his arms up. Pretty good for 8 weeks, I'd say...but I'm glad I already had the talk with Punkin about modeling good behavior! :)


And since we're on the whole video thing, here is an older one of him around 6 weeks old...


Too bad my Instagram app doesn't let me upload videos, or I'd just direct you over there. Well, I hope these little smiles bring a smile to your face!
