Mommy Mondays and an Exciting Tid Bit

It's important as a mom to take some time out for ourselves every now and then outside of being a mom just so we don't lose who we are. Here are some things I did this week that were all about me :)

* I took an extra long, extra hot shower and didn't worry about poopy diapers or pureed peaches

* I went to the grocery store yesterday all by myself. Now this may not seem like such a big deal, but it is a 30+ minute process to get myself dressed, Hunter dressed, Hunter's diaper bag packed and then to get everything and everybody in the's definitely an adventure. Yesterday, I was able to just grab my purse and hop in the nice! :)

* I slept in until 11am last week. I felt like a new woman!

* I read Cosmopolitan front to back all in one sitting while drinking some wine :)


Hunter is a crawling maniac...he is getting into everything and is wearing momma out! He is also pulling up on everything including our furniture, our stairs, and the fireplace. This totally freaks me out because I'm afraid he's going to smack his face or bust his nose. He stood up by himself yesterday without holding on to anything and I was so amazed! He is getting so big right before my eyes and it's the most unbelievable thing I have ever seen. I can't believe he is my son! <3

So onto the exciting info...Daniel and I have decided that we are going to try to make Hunter a big brother. :) There are several reasons why we want to add to our family:

* I think having a close aged sibling will be a blast.

* When we are done washing bottles and changing diapers I want to be DONE! I don't want to stop for a year or so and then do it all over again.

* We currently have a swing, jumperoo, and bouncy seat in our living room and I want to be able to put them away for good instead of putting them away for a year and pulling them out again.

* I want to get back in tip top shape, but don't feel like I can until after baby #2.

Whether we have a boy or a girl, we are done after baby #2. I've always wanted 2 kids...a boy and a girl, but if I don't get my girl I won't be too heartbroken. I love my baby boy and I think it would be awesome for him to have a brother. I just want a healthy baby...that is the most important thing to us. Soooo wish us luck and send lots of pink baby dust if you have any!! :) <3


  1. i HATE going to the grocery store with Elias alone. when B goes with us he is good as gold. when its just the two of us he is soooo needy. he doesnt wanna stay in the cart. he acts like he is starving and is super whiney. haha. Brendon says he gets bored with me because i dont make the cart into a racecar complete with sound effects. ha.

    sooo exciting that you are TTC for number two. we are soooo indecisive about when we would like to. we want them to be close in age as well but Elias was not a great sleeper and now is an awesome sleeper so i think we are enjoying it for now. we also dont know how long we will be alabama and i dont think i would wanna have a baby being so far away from family! we are fairly certain we only want three and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a boy and a GIRL. i might be a tad bit crazy and go away from our plan if the second one is a boy too. just to try ONE more time for a girl . but no more after that! lots of pink dust your way!

  2. Aw, exciting! We are probably waiting until next year to TTC, so I want to live vicariously through you. Good luck and lots of baby dust!
