Late night

I'm sitting here at 1:15am.. Watching Roseanne, checking Instagram, Facebook, email, playing words with friends, other random games and listening to my son talk to his fists and fart. I don't his almost every night. It gets old. Although I have a lot if mommy friends who might be up this late not everyone does what I do and is there to entertain me at night!! I really think there should be better things on tv this late! Like a nursing mothers channel!! With entertaining trash tv all night. So, if you have any pull in the tv business I'd appreciate you make this happen for me and all moms! Thanks so much!

Meal Plan Monday

I used to meal plan but it didn't really seem to make a difference in my grocery bill but it was nice to not have to think of what to make every day. So does anyone have any good tips for meal planning? Any good recipes I need to try? I'm always looking for new things to try! I'd like to try to make this a weekly post.

Sleepy smiles..

Tuesday was a rough day.. Buck is teething (yay for early teething) and doesn't sleep much during the day so around 4 he starts getting really cranky. Lyla is, I guess still adjusting to not have mommy attention 24/7 and is acting out. Even if I give her as much attention as possible it's not enough for her some days and she does anything she can to get my attention. That day she chose to use a spoon and bang it on everything in the kitchen while I'm trying to get Buck to sleep so I can make/eat dinner.. I ask her a few times to please stop, she doesn't and I just lost it and started yelling at her.. Not my proudest moment. I immediately feel bad and start telling her I'm sorry and try explaining that she really needs to listen.. She was over it pretty quick but I was still feeling bad.. I was thinking about it all night and then as I was laying on the couch with Buck at about midnight and he had just fallen asleep again I saw his eyes open a little and he had a sleepy little smile on his face and I vowed to try a little harder to have patience with Lyla. She didn't ask to be a big sister and she deserves to feel special still.

Do you have more than one kid? How did you handle it when you brought the second one into the home?

Wordless-ish Wednesday

Adam's grandpa passed away on January 30.. This pic is the one and only time he held Philip..

2013 Goals

I hate making New Years resolutions. Like really, do you, does anyone ever keep them? I'm pretty sure I haven't! So I thought I would make some goals that I feel are actually obtainable. 

1. Blog at least twice a week.
2. Go for a walk/walk on the treadclimber 3-4 times 
3. Read 35 books. Any suggestions? I'm into mystery, true crime, romance (not the Fabio on the cover type), attachment parenting, baby led weaning..
4. Do a special project with Lyla at least once a week.

I know they're not much but it makes me feel good to have goals and accomplish them. Have you set any goals for the year?

3 Months

Oh boy.. Buck you're 3 months old today. You have brought our family so much joy! Everyone just loves you to pieces. Most days you sleep pretty well, especially in your swing and cuddled with mama at night. I think we'll wait a few more months to try to transition you to your crib at night. You had a little trouble gaining weight in the first month and a half but you're catching up! You even have some little rolls! I wish I had a baby scale to weigh you whenever I wanted. You only started wearing size 0-3 stuff about 2 weeks ago and size 2 diapers.

Mid sneeze
 You don't really like tummy time but we make you do it anyway. You do love the toys that hang down on your car seat! When you see that little elephant you get so excited. You smile so big and so much.. And you have a dimple in your right cheek. I really hope you grow out of the scratching thing you do when you're tired or really gassy! Your head and face are looking like you got in a fight with a cat! Your eyes are still blue and we're very curious to see if they stay that color. I can not wait to see what you learn in the next month!
Couldn't get him to smile..
Hope you're having a great weekend!
