The Sweet Things

This is why my life is so beautiful. 
There a million crappy, not so great, terribly wrong, super stressful, make me wanna cry, things that happen everyday that make being a mama tough. But then there are moments like this that take my breath away because they fill my heart up so full with love I think it might burst. 

There have been so many stories going around lately of friends of friends that have just had babies that have been born with difficulties. Babies that need emergency surgeries and transplants, things that you would never want your  brand new sweet babe to endure, and even some stories of babies that just couldn't endure any longer.
These stories have weighed heavy on my heart. They have made me open my eyes to how lucky I am to have healthy babies that get to run and play and live happy healthy lives. They have reminded me of how grateful I need to be that I get to kiss these sweet babes every night before they go to bed and every morning when they wake up. To take a long deep breath during the trying times that raising children inevitably bring, and hold them tight for as long as I can.

I love you sweet babes.
I am so thankful for you
I love you to my bones. 


 I haven't been real crafty this summer. Been at the beach too much I guess. 
The other day I decided I was finally going to make our family silhouettes. This has literally been on my to do list for a year. I did it the cheat way but I LOVE The way they turned out. 
I got the canvases on sale at Michales, two for $4.00. I just took a profile picture of everyone in our family, printed them out on the computer, cut them out, painted them black, then modg podged them to the canvases. They aren't perfect,  i.e. mine is way bigger than everyones else's and Sissy's is crooked but oh well. 
SO SIMPLE and so cute! 

Invasion of the Princess

Its happened
The thing I most feared second to her having a boyfriend someday. 
The Sissy has got herself some Princess clothes
When I was pregnant I VOWED never to give into the Disney "princess crap" I think I called it. 
Welp...... So much for that! 
Sissy was gifted HUGE rubbermaid FULL of princess clothes, shoes, rings, necklaces. A little girls dream really. She has been obsessed with putting every dress on and looking in the mirror. 
Its pretty cute to watch 

So you won Disney. You and your ruffles and glitter and light up Cinderella shoes have made our way into my house...... 
and I kind of like. 
but if you tell anyone I said that I'll throw you in the trash so fast you wont know what hit you!

Stomach Bug

We're taking a sick day today. Baby sister was up all night throwing up..... My sweet girl. In between heaves she would look up and say "I love you mama" and then flash a cheese face smile. Such a trooper. We're
Laying low and watching movies and I am hovering. I keep asking Gavin if his belly hurts, and I'm pretty sure he's sick of me. I freaking hate the stomach bug. I think it's gross and miserable and I would like it to leave us alone. I am praying Sofia was it's only victim:(

Random Happenings

I have so much to catch up on. Too much really, but I just haven't been motivated to write. So here is our last seven days captured on my iPhone. As soon as I feel like it I'll upload real pics from my real camera...... And as soon as I've come to terms with it, I'll write about how my first born is officially enrolled in preschool.
For now enjoy silly photos from my phone

Last trip to the fair this summer
So we stuffed our faces with junk of coarse

Made a fort and read every book they have

Went Costco..... My babes second favorite place after Target

Ate pizza in our helmets. I mean really, it makes it taste so much better

Got A TON of hand me down dress up clothes. Go ahead, call me a Hypocrite. I swore I would never do the princess thing but to my defense the girl squishes worms and pees on the tree in the backyard. And yes, she made her brother put on a dress,and yes it likes it.

Woke up to feet in my face because the girl had a bad dream and slept in the big bed

We took the babes to Disneyland for a last minute family night out. We haver been all summer because of the crowds. It was a pretty perfect night, complete with ice cream and fireworks

Tomorrow I think we'll beach it. It's still so hot hot hot out.

Peace Out

Girls Night

This is what it looks like when me and my girl Holls go to the movies! 
All thats missing are the cucumber margaritas we drank before hand. 
We saw The Help..... GO SEE THIS MOVIE! 
I was a little nervous, lets face it, the movie had some BIG shoes to fill because that book was so wonderful. I have to say the movie was great. There were some things left out but the parts that they did use were beautiful enough to make up for it. 
I pretty much cried thru the entire thing. 

Thank you for SUCH a fun night !!!!! This is why you're one of my besties!

Car Problems

I spent yesterday doing this. It was a little slice of heaven.

I spent this morning wandering around the Joanns parking lot because I couldn't remember what my rental car looked liked. Super fun and not at all frustrating.

Oh what a difference a day makes

A New York State of Mind

I crave this city. I crave it the way a pregnant woman craves ice cream at two o'clock in the morning. I want the hustle and bustle of the streets. The constant buzz of the city. I want to drink coffee at a cozy corner coffee shop and watch the millions of people walk by. I crave the culture this city is drenched with.
All types of people all kinds of stories. The best restaurants, the best shopping, and the shows.....oh the shows.
New York, I miss you old friend. You and me need to get together soon

Sissy had her 2 yr well check today. I know I know I'm a little late. She's 90% in height and weight. She's fully potty trained, doesn't have a pop anymore, goes under water in the swimming pool, and picks out her own clothes.
Yesterday we picked out a preschool for the Boy. It was so overwhelming for me. To see the little tables with little chairs. Art work with kids names on it. The director telling me that by the end of the school year he'll probably be able to read. WHAT!!! Hold up, when did he get big enough to do all this.

My babes are growing, and I am in unfamiliar territory. When Gavin was Sofia's age we were preparing to bring a new baby home. Now instead of adding a new addition, I am sending one away for four hours a day. I don't remember what it's like to just have one kid at home. I feel like my body doesn't know what's going on either. It should be getting ready to birth a baby, and it's not, and I'm freaking out!

My days are chaotic and stressful and full of picking up toys and breaking up fights. Most days I am so tired I can barely see straight. I crave alone time....... But part of me also craves a baby. A fat, pink, cooing, squishy babe.
I know it's crazy but I do.
