  • My little elf girl is four months old today. *cue alllll the tears* I feel like four months is when we're officially out of the teeny baby stage...although she has been in 6-9 month sleepers since she was like two months sooooo...anywho. This morning Hudson didn't wake up until TEN so me and this girl got to hangout in bed and drink HOT coffee and get some work done (which never happens anymore). She's the smiliest, calmest baby I've ever met. Literally I can count the amount of times that she's like scream cried on two hands and most of those were because she hates being in her car seat. She loves cuddles and her big brother the most and still nurses like a champion. She thinks Sonny is like the funniest thing ever and EVERYTHING (seriously everything) goes in her mouth. I always thought I'd be a boy mom but I'll tell you what, I'm loving being this girls mom. And so the four of us will continue to learn together as a family and grow stronger and love harder and now I have to go make a cake because I told Hudson it was Presley's four month birthday and he got a little too excited. HAPPY FOUR MONTHS P GIRL! 😂

  • Advent calendars, Christmas jammies, dance parties to our favorite Christmas songs, and a half decorated tree because I have about the same attention span as my two year old. Yes friends, Christmas is here and there is nothing more fun than when the "magic" becomes real in your house again. Merry Christmas friends! What is one tradition that your family does every year?? We need to start making a few of our own and I'd love your ideas!!

  • In a house filled with so much mess and chaos, it's these few and far between moments of peace that keep me going. Like the real moments of SILENCE where you get to sit back and reflect. As moms we so rarely get any peace and routine becomes a necessity for sanity even though so many of us crave to get away and get out of that routine. I can't tell you that I've found a balance because I certainly have not, but I can tell you that the days when both my kids sleep at the same time or when Hudson sleeps at all, and I get to recharge my batteries...those are my favorite days. We all need those days. Also, I took a shower and washed my hair for the first time in like a week yesterday so I'm on a roll right now. Anybody else know exactly what I'm talking about???

  • My sweet little Peewee, there is definitely not a baby as sweet as you out there. Guys, she is just the epitome of sweet and I cannot get enough of her. Literally everyone who meets her is amazed by her calm demeanor and want for nothing but a cuddle. She is truly the most perfect addition to our family and We are so thankful for her every day 😍What makes your babies special??

  • Hudson's new favorite song is Feliz Navidad and take my word for it, there is nothing cuter than listening to him sing it. Literally. NOTHING. Also we got our Christmas tree today so let the festivities begin.
