Life Lately

Life lately has definitely been a challenge and full of changes. I'm still smack dab in the middle of morning sickness and it's definitely left me feeling defeated most days. Just getting out of bed in the mornings is a challenge let alone taking care of two small kids, a husband and a home. I am literally sick every minute of every day. No joke. So most days I call it a win when I am able to get out of bed, get the boys dressed and take Ryder to school. My house is so neglected and my poor family has to deal with me feeding them whatever doesn't make me want to vomit. Thankfully I have a very understanding husband who comes home from work and helps me out as much as he can no matter how tied he is. Everyone has been really understanding and I know this will pass soon. Until then sweatpants, saltines and these cute faces will get me through.

Gage is in the middle of an 18 month sleep regression right now. Talk about good timing right? Not. So he's up quiet a bit at night and also wakes up a few times during nap time. Send all the coffee! Just kidding. I can only have one cup and day. {enter eye roll emoji here}
As always, He's still my little fireball and keeps me on my toes every minute of the day. Gage has been a little harder to deal with while I have been sick. He's still so little and doesn't understand why I need some time to rest and he isn't entertained by movies or toys for very long. He's always pulling at me wanting me to play and it hurts my heart when I have to tell him no. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon. Gage may be full of sass but he also is the sweetest boy when he wants to be. If you couldn't tell by that face, he runs the house lately. 

Ryder has been a little more understanding. He asks me what I need during the hard times of the day and he is so good to watch after Gage for me. However, he says the baby is a boy and that we should name him "chuck e cheese". You got it kid. He has a cold right now so he also hasn't been sleeping well but we are Hoping no one else gets it because we all know it'll go right to Gage's ears. As always he is loving school and is learning so much and making a ton of friends. He says the funniest things and makes us laugh every minute of the day. His new saying is "nope. Not today sir!" Hey Ryder, will you go get my glasses for me please? "Nope. Not today sir!" 
He also makes sure to yell at cars who are driving too fast in the parking lot of Walmart as we're walking in while I turn every shade of red. But My favorite was when he asked if we could return Gage to Joann's Craft Store and get him a new brother. I mean, where does he come up with this?? I. Die. 

Holiday weekends are always my favorite. Although Tyson never gets Holiday's off other than Christmas and Thanksgiving, it still means there is no school and we can sleep in and take time to make a yummy breakfast. This morning was buttermilk pancakes and surprisingly I was feeling good enough for a minute to make them.  I also love to spend my Monday mornings planning our week in my day designer. This thing is a life saver. 

This post was about as random as our life has been right now. But I promise I have some amazing things in the works for the blog that I can't wait to share with you. In the mean time, thank you all for sticking with me and taking the time to read our little blog. Hope you all have a great week! Xo 


  1. Im sending you all the prayers for a quick upturn into the second trimester! Great name, Chuck E Cheese ;)

  2. Not to make you feel bad but I had morning sickness my ENTIRE pregnancy with Brylee...right up until I had her...I was so looking forward to the end of the first trimester when it "ends" but never did-haha--hopefully you feel better soon because I know how miserable I was and I didn't have any littles to look after--but maybe it's a girl becuase I've heard lots of people have bad morning sickness when pregnant With girlies! Hugs to you and hopefully you all feel better soon--and where do kids learn the things they do?!
