Well another month has gone by and this space has once again been neglected. Life sure gets busy with 3 little ones to care for now. We have a little bit of sickness floating around the house and no plans for the day. The baby is down for his morning nap and the older two are playing house together and watching Curious George so I thought it would be the perfect time to do a little update.

image

The heat here has been a bit unbearable and most of our time outdoors has been spent in the pool. The weather finally cooled off a bit last week and we spent some time outdoors blowing bubbles, bouncing on the trampoline, and swinging.

image

This little sweetheart LOVES to sleep he takes two 3-4 hour naps every day and sleep at least 8 hours straight every night. We have given him the title “best baby ever!”🙂

image

Noah is definitely my picky eater and sometimes this mommy just gives in and lets him have what he wants. Nachos are a favorite on his limited menu.

image

Mexican food is a family favorite. We can put away some chips and salsa.

image

We were the workers in our church nursery this week. The kids love to pull out the playdoh and Eric obliged them this week.

image

Bath time is a nightly ritual around here and it appears that all three of my babies love the water.

image

I am in love with this little butterball and we got in some great cuddle time this week while the kids played in their pool.

image

I noticed that the kids were “matchy matchy” in their pj’s yesterday morning and I thought a pic of all three was appropriate. I love my sweet babies!!

InstaFriday…on Saturday.

Capturing life throughout our week…

image

Last Friday night was family movie night. I love cuddling with my munchkins!!

image

We had a few errands to run on Saturday and decided to have lunch at McAlisters. I love their Cheddar Potato soup and Harvest Chicken Salad sandwich.

image

She is much a little mommy.

image

Little man turned a month old this week. Time is flying by these days.

image

We stop by the snow cone place at least once a week. The kids ask to go everyday. I think we might need to invest in a snow cone maker.

image

We had a petting zoo at our local library this week and Noah wasn’t so sure about the pony ride🙂

image

Then the chick fil a cow showed up and the kids lost all interest in the “real” animals.

image

My new love…homemade iced coffee. Delicious!!

image

Mason is pretty chill when it comes to the kids and their antics. Olivia thought he needed a little company during his nap.

For Today…

Monday, March 19, 2012

Outside my Window…another partly cloudy, warm day. Looks like spring is here to stay!!

What We’re Learning… lots of fun outside and reading everyday. I will start back on a more scheduled school time with Olivia once the baby arrives and we establish a new routine this summer. I’m looking forward to picking out, planning and preparing PreK work as well as a “school space/room” for this fall!!

I am thankful for…  a healthy pregnancy so far.

Around the house… Noah is napping, Olivia is crafting, and the laundry is all washed and ready to be folded and put away.

From the kitchen… we had yogurt and fruit for breakfast, turkey sandwiches for lunch, and I have a roast in the crock pot for dinner

I am wearing… black shorts and a black and white maternity top.

I am reading… Large Family Logistics…again J

I am praying… for the health of my family…my parents and siblings have all been fighting a nasty virus over the past month or so. Noah is also dealing with bad allergies right now.

I am creating… a car seat cover for the new baby

I am hearing… my wind chime outside and Olivia’s sweet humming as she cuts and colors at the table beside me.

I am remembering… the wonderful teaching we heard this past weekend at a marriage conference our church hosted

I am going… visit my mom tomorrow! The kids love going to Nanny’s J

On my mind… all the cleaning and organizing I need to finish before the baby arrives

One of my favorite things… the time when Eric comes home from work each day!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… finish changing out the winter to summer wardrobes.

A Picture to Share..

A rare afternoon nap!

It is so hard to believe that March is already here! This year is flying by even though the days are long. Life with two toddlers is a lot of work and very tiring at times, but the joy they bring to my life is something I wouldn’t trade for the world.

IMAG0333

Last Friday it warmed up a bit (into the 50’s) and we headed to Nanny and Papaw’s (my parent’s) house to play. The kids also “helped” Papaw put together a new trampoline.🙂

Friday night we went to my sis-in-law’s and picked up this bed for Olivia. Eric put it together Saturday and she was so excited to be sleeping on a big girl bed! I still have to purchase new bedding for the beds and Olivia has requested a “purple bed.” I think this bedding would be cute.

Noah came down with a stomach virus late Wednesday afternoon. Thankfully, it was very mild and we only had to clean up after him a few times. He was over it by Thursday morning and is back to his happy little self again!

IMAG0352-1-1

This little girl is a talker. She wakes up talking and goes to bed talking🙂 I guess I am paying for my raising because according to my parents and grandparents I was the same way. She has a very sweet spirit though and it is hard not to adore this little cutey even if she wakes you up at 4:30am talking🙂

IMAG0354

I’m 31 weeks now and I am not sure I can make it 9 more weeks. This has been the most uncomfortable pregnancy so far for me. Sleeping has become more and more difficult even with extra pillows. I feel huge and I have a feeling that this little boy is going to be a whopper big, healthy baby🙂

The weather is gorgeous here and we are looking forward to a weekend of soaking up some sunshine!!

It’s Friday again and time for me share my snapshots from our week!!

IMAG0284

A yummy homemade pizza to start our weekend off right!

IMAG0285

Okay, so I think Edy’s has to be my new favorite ice cream. Olivia picked this flavor when we were at Wal-Mart last Friday and we had it for dessert with our pizza. Yummy!!

IMAG0286

This little boy LOVES his toys!! You will rarely find him without a Matchbox car, G.I. joe, or play gun in his hands. He also take a pile of cars and 3 stuffed animals to bed with him every night🙂

My girly girl and I had a little nail painting session this week.

My two favorite men in the whole wide world!!

My little chef :-) He helps me cook dinner every night.

30 weeks… I have had a hard time catching my breath during this pregnancy and I think it is because I am carrying the baby high this time around. This picture seems to confirm that for me.

IMAG0342

We had our 3rd trimester ultrasound this week and little brother is looking rather cramped in there. He weighed 3 lbs 7 ozs and is measuring about a week ahead of schedule.

IMAG0329

We spent 3 days at the park this week soaking up some vitamin D and enjoying the beautiful weather. Yesterday the temps reached into the 80’s and we had to pull out the short sleeves and sundresses!

IMAG0331

I hit up a local children’s consignment sale yesterday and Olivia found a new game. This little girl loves board games and puzzles!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
