I really need to start writing more often. It’s been a little over two months since I checked in last so let’s get started on the game of catch up.

Squeaky is now five months old. He’s rolling, scooting, and starting to rock on his hands and knees. He started baby food yesterday (sweet potatoes! YUM!) and is doing amazingly with it! He eats about an entire jar each time then nurses for about ten minutes and passes out for two or more hours at a time. He is just getting over an ear infection and has a doctor’s appointment coming up to check and make sure it is gone and to double check his weight. He only gained a pound in two months which is much less than ideal. I’m hoping that by increasing my healthy fat intake (since he’s breastfed) and feeding him some baby food will help him gain the weight he needs to gain. I REALLY don’t want to switch him to formula. It stinks and it takes too much extra work to prepare. I’ve almost gotten him registered for Early Head Start and he’ll start once there’s an opening and he’s a year old (so like next January).

Little Man had his ear tubes put in at the end of March. Those things have been the best thing ever in his life. He talks all the time now and it’s actual words, not just jibber jabber. He can identify about ten letters based on how they look, he knows how to count to ten, and he sings his ABC’s. Plus, he knows a few animal sounds and keeps learning more everyday. Sadly, I think he’s getting to that age where he doesn’t nap anymore. But he is making friends very well, he knows their names and asks me about them constantly. Early Head Start is going to be going on summer break soon and when they go back, Little Man will be in a new class. Luckily, his teachers from last school year (2014-2015) will be his teachers next year (2016-2017) so hopefully he’ll be fine with the new classroom.

I have joined a website called Blogging For Books. Basically, you sign up for an account (completely free!) and order books, which are completely free AS LONG AS you review the books on your blog and on their website. At least that’s how I understand it. So be looking out for my first review, I’m quite excited about the book I got. Other than that, everything is going as it has been.

As a family, we have a family get together this weekend that I’m excited about. It’s to celebrate my husband’s grandparents’ anniversary and my husband’s cousin and her husband are coming in from Hawaii. We haven’t seen them since Thanksgiving of 2014, so it’ll be nice to see them again.

That’s all that’s going on around here. My next update should be coming up soon and will be my book review. See you all later!

Down with the Sickness

This weekend was full of sickness in our house. Little Man started off with a cold, then passed it to Squeaky. Little Man also has a double ear infection (the 5th one of his not even 2 years) and is being referred to the ENT to see what’s going on.

On the good news side of our world, Little Man’s second birthday party is this weekend! We already have everything picked out and we just have some last minute things to buy. He’s having a Cars themed party, he’s going to love it (at least I hope so). A few of his little friends will be there, so we’re making some coloring pages. There will also be bubbles and a road made on the floor to drive cars on. Hopefully that will be enough for the kids, since the ages will range from 1 to 6.

Next month, I’m going to start a program to get me into shape before my husband and I go to the Philippines next January. I’m not sure what program I’ll do, but I’m googling. Google is basically my best friend. I haven’t started my bullet journal yet, I have so much going on that I haven’t gotten around to setting it up. Hopefully I’ll be able to sometime before March starts.

That’s all I’ve got for now. How’s life for you? Let me know! See you soon!

Last Friday Night

Little Man and I had a super busy weekend. My best friend and my mom were both in town (not together of course), so we had to visit with them. The crappy weather of the weekend was not about to ruin my good time!

Thursday night, we met up with my best friend Tera and went shopping…well, window shopping since we only actually bought peppermint hot chocolate and a muffin at the coffee shop in Books A Million.

I have no idea why it's so bright! Stupid Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Friday night, my youngest brother had his senior night for marching band so we stayed for the whole football game. Little Man seemed to like it, except for when he got hungry of course.

We were very bundled up!

Saturday, we got lunch, went shopping, and had dinner with my mom and two brothers. Little Man stole a chicken wing from my plate at lunch (no, I didn’t let him keep it long enough to get to the bone), slept for an hour while we shopped, and had some green beans at dinner so he had a good time (he loves food).

Yep, we wore matching shirts.

Today, we cleaned, took naps, and watched movies so we spent the day in our pajamas.

My husband surprised me with a Marvel pillowcase and a Big Bang Theory throw blanket!

The Creep

It’s Sunday and I just watched The Walking Dead. To avoid spoilers, all I will say is WOW! Due to commercials on AMC, I now want to watch Fantastic Four (the movie with Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, and Michael Chiklis). Little Man and I took a two hour nap this evening so sadly, I’m not tired right now like I should be. I guess I’ll read some of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

So today I wanted to talk about blogs. I don’t know about you but when I find a new blog, I go back and read all the entries. Is that creepy? I don’t think it’s too creepy to read them but I feel it would be a little creep to comment on previous posts. Not like a post from yesterday, but one from like a year ago. I just admitted that I’m a semi-creeper. Awesome.

Nothing exciting really went on this weekend, except for a one year old’s birthday party yesterday. Tomorrow, I go to the dentist. That’ll just add to the stereotypical awesomeness of a Monday.

Did anything exciting happen to you this weekend? Do you watch Walking Dead? Do you find reading people’s entire blog history creepy? Let me know in the comments below! See you later!

Time Warp!

Well it’s Sunday, sorry people with Monday through Friday jobs. Today’s post in the October Blogging Challenge is weekend highlights and I actually had a fun night this weekend!

Have you heard of the movie Rocky Horror Picture Show? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it…unless you don’t like musicals, humor, or Susan Sarandon’s singing (that last one is a little hard to get past). Anyway, since a few years after the movie came out, there have been showings. Basically, you go to a theatre with a big group of people that may or may not be dressed as characters from the movie and watch the movie. BUT it’s slightly interactive, like there are lines you yell during the movie and items you throw at the screen at certain parts. I’m terrible at describing it but it was SUPER fun! You should totally find out where there is one near you and go! My brother and I went (we didn’t dress up) and we’re already trying to get a large group and costumes together for next year’s showing! I didn’t get many pictures because you have to turn your cell phone off (like in all movie theaters).

We sat in front of a wall so no one would have the screen blocked by our tall selves. We're so considerate.

That’s Just The Way We Roll

Well, it’s Sunday meaning back to work for all of you with weekday jobs. For me as a mom, it’s just another day. I missed yesterday’s post so I’ll make it up then add today’s post. 🙂

Yesterday’s topic for the October Blogging Challenge was what/who inspires you. I get inspired by the most random things known to mankind. I’m currently writing a story based off of a pin of a tumblr conversation, I’ve written things based from TV shows, all kinds of stuff.

Today’s topic is weekend highlights. Yesterday, we went to the Comcast store to get a replacement cable box, Walmart for groceries, and Subway for dinner. It was a nice simple day out. Today, we stayed home but it was pretty great. I baked a tie dye cake (a horrible mess was made) and the baby made friends with one of his dad’s friends. Then after the baby went to bed, my husband and I watched the season premiere of the Walking Dead. It was awesome, I mean WOW people!

That’s all for today. What was the highlight of your weekend? Let me know! See you back here tomorrow for another post!
