Do you ever feel like more days than others you feel like you can do it all? That’s me today I woke up for my son’s 3am feeding, got him back to sleep at 4am, worked out, did 3loads of laundry folded and put away my kids clothes, actually hung mine up, ate a healthy breakfast all before my energetic daughter woke up! I guess now that she is up and a little cranky. I’ll take the kids outside. Today is going to be a bad ass super mom kinda day.
So my husband and I came up with a schedule for nighttime feedings and I must say im loving it..probably more than him lol! I go to bed at 9pm he does the 9-3 feedings and I get up at 4am. today I decided im going to start staying up after Benjamin goes back to sleep since I go back to work Friday I need to get use to waking up early again. I even started my work out routine and had a healthy breakfast (egg white with cheese and tomato). If you know me you know I love my coffee and it needs to be sweet (which I know isnt the healthiest but I even solved a problem with that, 2 sugars with coolwhip instead of creamer and sprinkled cinnamon on top (that helps burn fat)) my goal is to lose 25ibs. I don’t have a time line just want to be at a healthy weight so I can keep up with my hectic schedule and my two babies.
As I sit here after watching morning cartoons I finally feel safe to enjoy my nice cup of coffee while catching up with the blog however; my daughter disagrees apparently I didn’t cuddle long enough so she hangs all over me as im trying to work around her she then bumps my coffee that I made just right and now instead of me drinking it, it is now on my table and tablet. But I guess thats a moms life right there! My husband is an amazing dad im not just saying that but he really is an active father and husband but still the mom vs dad war is in every house. Its unavoidable, for example Landon can lay on the couch for a whole movie and play on his phone. But the minute I lay down to watch a 1hour episode of Gilmore Girls or counting on Lilliahna and Benjamin just can’t handle it, Lilliahna is climbing all over me tryng to reach for my phone, tugging on my hair, playing with my face and then Benjamin who was sound asleep wakes up once he hears me sit..im curious is any other moms in this ongoing battle? I know im not the only one!
Beautiful family of four
I’m back writing and updating my blog. Yes I know it has been a while I honestly haven’t had time or energy between all the sickness that comes with pregnancy, getting through the holidays, receiving a promotion at work and of course taking care of a toddler. It has been a crazy 9 months but now I am happy to report our new addition to our growing family is a handsome little boy, Benjamin leviticus was born June 1st. and Lilliahna is doing amazing adjusting as a big sister. I am so happy and so in love with my beautiful family of four. I can’t believe its already time to go back to work next Friday well at least for one day then its 4th of July so I go right into another break I am a women that is truly blessed with a good career, a beautiful family, food in my fridge and a roof over our heads.
Time for potty training!
My daughter is 18months and we started potty training over the weekend! Nothing is better than getting excited after she uses the potty and then she gets excited because you are. She has used the potty three times so far and hopefully it becomes more very soon. As of right now between my husband and I we put her on the potty every 30-45min and give her something like a toy to distract her with until she pees usually takes just a few minutes if she goes if not we put a diaper on her; then of course she goes as soon as we put a diaper on her. However; we have never experienced potty training a toddler before so if anyone has experience with quick/ easy potty training tips I would appreciate some feedback:) wish us luck!
Tis the season
As I sit here watching my hallmark Christmas movies I can’t help but think if any of these perfect Christmas towns exists; if so I would love to visit one. To meet new people in a little town, taking a carriage ride through the snow. It also makes me think of my own dreams that I don’t always pay attention to during the whole year. My dream has always been to own a tiny little bookstore with a lot of regulars that come in to visit and of course new customers to see what its all about. Every evening I’ll bake a big batch of cookie/pastries and have coffee out every morning. In the corner of my store right beside the cash register have my crafts for sale. I often bounce between that dream and the dream to own my own inn. A Christmas cottage would be perfect for me!
Of course while I’m crying watching this beautiful Christmas movie my husband is making fun of me and hating all my “corny” hallmark movies. Im sure I’m not the only wife that has the struggle of her husband acting like he’s a scrooge (but really isn’t) yes I will admit im still a kid at heart when it comes to Christmas but he knew that when he married me. I can only hope my daughter enjoys the holidays as much as me and will enjoy baking with me and decorating sugar cookies and making ginger bread houses. I hope everyone enjoys this time with family and has Christmas traditions they look forward to every year! I look forward to reading your special traditions in the comments below.
My first turkey!
The bump isn’t just fat
Today was my first ultrasound I am 13 weeks with another beautiful baby:) my husband and I had to bring my 18month daughter to the very long doctors appointment and I have to say Im super proud of my big girl she did so good. It was actually nice bringing her because it hasn’t been long at all since I was there for lilliahna so all the nurses remembered us and they got to see lilliahna as a big girl! Im due June 2 and will most likely go a few weeks early because I went early with my first I just hope they don’t share the same day but we couldn’t be happier and we are so excited to meet our second baby!
This photo was taking at the doctors of me and my 2 babies 😍
Instructions on how to make a turkey
My vacation started today and the biggest thing I’m looking forward ro is cuddling with my baby girl, watching Christmas movies and baking. I have a week off the biggest thing I have planned is making the Turkey all by myself. As a young women am I the only one that is nervous when it comes to making the turkey. Your husband is obviously looking forward to the turkey and your mom knows how it is supposed to be done so she’ll know if you messed up lol I just hope I don’t burn my house down in the process 😒. I am 100% one of the crazy people who have their tree up; however I still have some town pieces that need to be painted that also is a learning process I hope one day I’ll be as good as my grandmother. As much as she shakes she can paint the tiniest village people perfectly and yet when I paint a big Christmas tree you can see every mistake I think when it comes to certain crafts the older you get the better you get. Almost like a talent that you just wake up with one morning.Maybe I’ll just stick to baking and jewelry!
