I’m baaackkk

That’s right..I’m bacckkk (in my creepiest scary voice lol)! I took a little break to get use to being a mommy. It’s been a fun roller coaster! Things have settled down although the routine is constantly changing as he gets older so for me all best are off for a constant nap time. I have a lot of blog post that I have been brainstorming on so I shouldn’t run out of content for a while! I’m also thinking about changing blog sites and getting something custom done. I hate boring and preset templates.

Baby update: Isaac is a little over 2 months. He is starting to grunt and coo at us. 🙂 Breakdowns are not as frequent or maybe I’m just getting use to them?!? I fear I may have a teether but we will see at his 2 month checkup. I am still breastfeeding but cloth diapering is another story. He is currently too small for the newborn size and the AIO are too big. Right now we are in ‘sposies’. I have some great review for the bio-diapers so I will post the next week.

Me update: I’m adjusted to being a mom of a newborn. I have a few goals before I turn 30 in October. One of them is being a better housewife. That means staying organized and on top of my cleaning schedule. I have begged for a maid…well lets just say I got shot down. Then I thought well I will use this to my advantage. The money I would use to pay someone I will just pay myself. Hubby agreed so now it’s time for me to get to work. I started off by ordering a few books (no Kindle edition available) and they will arrive today. I will spend this weekend getting organized and ready for Monday morning. I’m going room by room organizing ..purging..and cleaning. I am most excited to get my Home Management Binder together. I will follow-up Monday with pictures and a guide to make your own.

Hubby: Ed’s still working and going to school full time..bless his little heart. He loves being a daddy and gives me lots of mommy breaks (yay for me)!

Chief update: Loves the baby hates the crying. He tries to make the baby stop by bringing his toys or licking his feet( both ideas don’t work sorry Chiefers). He is happy to see his cousin Moses  but Moses is obsessed with the baby. (sorry again Chiefers). He does now have another dog to terrorize which is Louis.

Harley update: He thinks that baby bottles, caps, nipples, paci’s are all kitty toys…true story. So for now he is locked up at night because that is when the stealing happens.

Grandparents update: My mom (Mimi) and dad (Mr.McLaurin) no really he wants the baby to call him that get to see the baby everyday on facetime (best invention ever).

Ed’s mom (granny) and dad (Uncle)…see a trend here? Uncle got to meet Isaac yesterday. Hopefully he will meet granny soon 🙂

Until Monday have a wonderful weekend! I will be spending some of it in VA Beach with Ed’s dad and brother Chris! I will get to the  beach for at least a moment. hmm maybe next time because I need to go to the Navy exchange 🙂

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

It has been so busy! I am blessed to say that I had one heck of a Christmas even the baby had it good! My parents got me all my big stuff off my registry (car seat,pack & play and bassinet). My husband is off for another 4 days and in those 4 days we will be done with this nursery. I am feeling great and I don’t want to wait much longer in this pregnancy to have everything set. This Sat we will take a tour of the hospital and then next Sun we will start Bradley classes which will make all this so real. Baby Isaac has been moving like crazy and now you can see my tummy shake and move with the kicks. I also got a flip camera from my dad so I am going to try and get it on film because I think it is too cool plus he refuses to move when anyone else is in the room(I’m starting to think that no one believes me). He also has a history of this in the ultrasound room. I am getting 3d/4d  ultrasound at the end of the month so I am keeping my fingers crossed he is not sleeping! I leave you with my favorite Christmas pictures 🙂

I honestly can’t say enough about Kristin Partin Photography! She is amazing and I can’t wait to see the rest! I have to 1st say that it was Freezing cold yesterday and I wasn’t sure I would even last 10 min but I made it almost an hour. It was worth being uncomfortable to get amazing shots like this one! I will be using her for my Maternity photo’s as well and I already want to take them because it is so much fun working with her and Sarah! I need the bump to grow a little more so it will be in February (hopefully its warmer). I don’t think I even look preggers in this picture thanks to some “non” maternity wear by Kate Spade. I love the colors against the white snow. I am 21 weeks in this photo! I will have to take one today so you can see the bumps progress! Ed and I are going to our 20 week ultrasound. I need to confirm that it’s a boy again plus we have diagnostic stuff to do. I had a dream 2 nights in a row that I somehow  I was having a girl 😦  I wanted a girl until I found out it was a boy and now I want it to stay that way!
