Louie turned 1 month yesterday! He is already grown so much and his newborn onesies are pulling at the seams and his little cheeks are filling out! So these 4 following points about what I've learned are just for fun and are not true for boy babies in general but this is just what has been different from Haddie to Louie in our first month so far! I'm sure I will have A LOT more important things to learn about boys in my future!
#1. You need to be able to change diapers ninja fast! I have the cleanest sheets, comforter, and duvet I've ever had because of how many times I have washed it all the past month! lol These boys do not mess around!
#2. Boys milk their pains. Louie will start crying and the second I pick him up he is all smiles and is totally fine... (But I mean, I guess we all already knew this because when our husbands are sick, we all know the world is about to end! lol)
#3. Boys take their time. This boy has been eating really well, but OH MY GOSH, he takes FOREVER to take a full feeding. Obviously I'm just comparing everything to Haddie (since thats all I know) but our feedings take 30-45 minutes, where Haddie's only lasted about 15. This guy likes to drink slowly, nod off to sleep, take short breaks, and take just a little at a time! I'm constantly just like, "Come on, man!"
#4. Boys are messy. I expected this in my near future of playing with toys, dirt, etc.. but I wasn't really prepared for spit up! Haddie spit up twice. I can remember both of them distinctly because I was so grossed out. But let me tell ya, I haven't counted the times Louie has spit up! ha Every baby is SO different and I'm learning that quick!
I hope you all have been having a wonderful summer. We have been traveling non stop seeing family and friends and enjoying Seth being home. We are home for a few days and I have been wanting to post all our home before and after…..

OMGSSSH!! I am so glad that I am finally starting these posts on my blog because they have been on my "WANT" to do list for a LONG TIME!! My life has taken on an extra turn of "busy" in a good way as it was an answered prayer but it has also eaten into all of my free "me time" that I normally would use for my blog at night! I'm hoping to be able to find a

OH, I am just kind of tired of hearing this phrase over and over again. First, because I hear it so much from other mamas and second, because when my brain goes there I have to tell it to STOP. It can creep up on you REAL easy.....
Furniture, lighting, and wall decor are also such a big thing for me because you will be staring/sitting on it all day for like the next 5 years... (in our case probably 10-20 LOL). So it has to be good, and something you BOTH like, and something thats durable... AND JUST PERFECT, AND timeless... AND now kid friendly... AND inexpensive but really good quality... I mean, is it just me or does it feels like you are searching for a unicorn? lol.....

New things are not always fun. Some embrace change while others run from it. Some change is overwhelming and yet so exciting like motherhood or getting married! Change tends to get a negative connotation but it's easy to see why sometimes. I mean, I love a routine....
So I have not yet written out all my goals for this year but Seth and I have gotten a chance to talk about a few things we are striving
