The Nut House

These two are crazy. They are loud and rowdy and full of energy. I wish I had 1/4 of the energy they have. This babe in my belly sure is making it harder to keep up with them, and It takes everything in me to get to bath and bedtime. But I love every out of control bone in their body.

Oh Hey 3rd Trimester

I can't believe I'm already in my 3rd trimester. With the holidays coming up, I know this last leg of pregnancy is going to fly by! Not gonna lie, I am READY for this little babe to be here already! I'm pretty uncomfortable and i don't see that changing anytime soon. So here's hoping that the weeks start flying by because we are so excited to meet our new Little Mr.

Scenes From Halloween

The older these babes get the more fun Halloween is! This year a big ole group of us trick or treated around the neighborhood and it was such a blast! Can't wait till next year when we have a little nugget to dress up.

Little Indian

I think my favorite part of school is all the fun performances they do when they are little. I mean, who doesn't love a little indian head:)

It's Sunday and raining outside. Just the way a October Sunday should be. James Taylor is playing, my babes and their daddy are coloring in the kitchen talking about dinosaurs and princesses. My apple cider candle is burning and the little fish in my belly is doing his morning stretches while I lay on the couch.
There are some days that are impossible. Moments that make me want to throw in the towel and run away. Days that seem never ending. An then there are moments like this, where everything just seems so right. Moments where the calm sweeps away all of the crazy life stuff, giving us a much needed break. Looking into the kitchen, listening to funny their little stories, my heart is full.
Thank you Sunday.

This picture sums up how I feel these days. TIRED! From the minute I wake up till the minute I close my eyes at night I am so dang tired. I swear I think there is an indentation of my big ole booty on my couch. Pregnancy the third time around is a whole different ball game. It's just as special but I feel like there is less time to sit back and kick your feet up when the struggles of carrying another human being kick in. Your kids don't stop just because you're tired, especially when you're tired all day everyday. Last week sucked. Plain and simple. I wasn't feeling well, the kids got a cold, I wanted super nanny to swoop in and take me away for 24 hours so I could just sleep. Shocker, that never happened. I honestly don't know how that Dugger lady does it because being prego while raising other children is freggin hard. I'm trying to remind myself to slow down. I've been racking my brain for quiet time activities my kids can do so I can sit for a second. I'm thinking I might even take myself on a solo date this week just to be quiet and calm.

Here's to 17 more weeks of baking a baby

He Read Me a Story

Tonight my son read this book to me. That's right, he read it TO me. Except for maybe six words, that boy sat down next to me on the couch and blew my mind. I will never forget the swell in my heart as he moved his little finger from word to word, sounding each one out. I will never forget his concentration and how proud he was when he finished. But most of all, I will never forget how insanely proud I felt of my sweet sweet boy when he turned the last page. This moment will go down in the books along with your first smile, first step, first word, first giggle, your first freckle. I love you so much baby boy. Thank you for reminding me tonight that hard work and determination can make amazing things happen. I can't wait till story time tomorrow night.

School Recap So Far

Funny things from the first weeks a school.

On his first day they had to go around and say their names and their favorite food. He said " My name is Gavin and I love salmon". HAHA 

When I asked how his first day was he said "my armpits sweat a lot at recess  and there is a girl in my class that gets in trouble a lot so I'm not going to be friends with her". 

He only eats his sandwich at lunch time because eating cuts into playtime. 

We walk every morning with a little girl next door that I'm pretty certain he has a crush on. Easy tiger, you're only 5. 

At back to school night I had to fit my butt in a teeny tiny kindergarten chair. I was pretty convinced that I was never going to be able to get out of it with this belly. 

I get a big fat kiss everyday before he walks into class, even if his friends are looking. I'll be sad when the day comes when kissing your mama goodbye isn't cool.

It happened. My first born started Kindergarten. As if I didn't already lose my bananas when he started Pre School last year, this was way harder. Add on raging pregnancy hormones and you can just imagine what a crying blubbering mess I was. My son, however, was amazing. He wasn't nervous at all. The Friday before school started all of the Kinder students were invited to go meet the teacher, check out their new room, hopefully meet some new friends and just kind of explore the school. Thank the baby Jesus they did this because it completely put all of the kids and parents at ease. The first day rolled around, Daddy made a pancake feast, we put on our school clothes and walked to the beginning of our next big chapter. I had my camera and tissues ready. I honestly think I was holding my breath.... I was so nervous. We lined up and the teacher opened the door and he walked right in and never looked back.  
That was it. 
He was ready 
He found a seat at a desk and I ran to the window to catch one more last glimpse. He looked up with a HUGE smile on his face and waved good bye. 
It happened so fast.
There were no tears. No clinging hugs. No nervous energy.
Steve and Sofia and I walked and she cried of course. She wanted her best friend back. I got home and sat on the couch and burst into tears. I was so heartbroken and so proud all at the same time. I knew he was ready, but watching him walk into something so new and so big that morning, with total confidence, totally blew me away. 

I learned a lesson that morning. I will always be his Mama no matter where he is. He will always know how much I love him and how much I support him. He will have to make decisions on his own, and figure out some of lifes hard stuff with out me being there to help. And I will always ALWAYS be his number one fan and will ALWAYS be there when he needs me, even if its from a far. 

I love you sweet boy. I love you so much sometimes it takes my breath from my lungs. I am so proud to be your mama and so excited to see what this new journey has in store for us. 

I love you to your Kindergarten bones.

Chasing summer

My baby boy starts kindergarten on Tuesday, and true to form, I'm having a hard time with it. That's a whole separate post and a whole bucket of tears.

To celebrate his last week of summer we packed the Fam up and headed to Palm Springs. It was perfect. We same for hours on end, ate dinner in bed, watched movies, swam some more, just had good ole family time. It was one of my favorite trips.

I have three more days home with my boy before I have to share him and I am going to love him up till he can't breath. I'm a lucky mama to have such wonderful babes.

I wish summer didn't have to end

The Best Feeling

Dear Little Fish ,

Today marks the day I officially felt you swimming around in my belly. I've thought I could feel you here and there for about a week, but today I REALLY felt you. I love these little flutters and kicks, it lets me know alls good in there for you. Your brother and sister or daddy can't feel you yet, so for know, this is our little secret. I can't believe how much I love you already. I dream about what you'll look like, the way you'll smell so good and new. I can't wait to hold you in my arms. I know we have a while, so for now, I'll cherish every hiccup and every kick you've got.

I love you to your bones little fish

Your Mama

A night time visit

Last night I had a visit from my grandma in my dreams. I was in a room full of babies and there were other people around and out of the corner of my eye I saw my grandma. She didn't say anything and it seemed like no one else could see her. I walked towards her and she reached out and grabbed my hand and squeezed it really tight, and then she was gone. I woke up and i could feel her around me. I could almost smell her it was so real. I think it means this new babe has an angel in heaven looking over it.

Thanks for meeting me last night grandma. I've missed you everyday and it was good to feel your warm hands on mine. Thank you for watching over this new babe of ours. What a lucky babe to have someone like you on its side. I love you do much. See you next time

Beat It Heat

It's hot as crap here.
I'm over it.
Im over feeling sticky and sweaty and miserable. I mean i really cant think of a better way to spend my days than in a non air conditioned house in a puddle of my own sweat.
The only good thing is that we get to eat lots of otter pops and no one looks at us funny for doing so.
Fall can come anytime it wants. The only thing to do is sit in a pool and eat watermelon.
