The BEST kids clothes organization tip

Okay, let’s talk about kids clothes. I have four sons that are fairly close in age, which means when it comes to clothing them I pretty much have it made. So far I’ve only had to buy (or am gifted, gotta love grandparents) clothes for #1, and then #2, #3 and #4 all get his hand me downs. None of them are at the age yet where they care what they … [Read more...]



Four Boys and a Man on a Mission

I figured that after a month of silence it was about time for an update on the baby and life in general, so here we go. Let’s start at the beginning...the day Abram was born. I’m one of those women that is chronically overdue with babies and I expected nothing less with this one... I don’t think I even packed my hospital bag until after my … [Read more...]



Baby #4 is here, and it’s a…

Born 10/26/16 7 lbs 12 oz 20.5 inches He is the sweetest, most snuggly little thing you will ever meet. I was planning to write a whole post about him and the birth, but the second I started typing three-quarters of my kids started crying, so I will be back at a later time to share more details. We are … [Read more...]



The Boy’s Room – Then, Now, and Future Plans

So today let’s talk about the boy's room.   The room is 12 x 15 and will be shared by my older two boys. If you regularly read the blog than you’ve seen pictures of it while under construction...but here they are again (mostly to remind me that we’ve already come a long way and aren't just beginning...because it’s true, but I … [Read more...]



Life and Pregnancy Update

Hey everyone! SO sorry I fell off the face of the earth right after dropping that pregnancy bomb, my computer died and has been in the repair shop. I tried to get it fixed through Apple, but they quoted me $500 to get it working again...which I just can't/won't do. Fortunately I found a local guy to get it working again for about … [Read more...]



Boys + Bluebonnets = Four (obviously)

If you live in the Texas hill country, springtime bluebonnet pictures are a must. They’re practically a requirement to live here...I’ve heard rumors that if you don’t take at least one bluebonnet picture each year they kick you out of the state. Each spring for the 6-8 weeks the bluebonnets are out you can find cars pulled over on the side of the … [Read more...]



An update on Judah and life with three kids

I think it's high time for a baby update. I can sense that y'all want one, I can feel everyone thinking "curtains, saloon doors, lampshades, whatever...show me the baby!" Okay, FINE. If y'all are going to force me to show pictures of my adorable new son, then I guess I will. Just don't expect me to like it. Okay, let's just get all the … [Read more...]

He arrived on Wednesday, March 18th at 11:27 am. Not by choice though, he had to be forced out. Truth be told, if it was up to me I would have … [Read more...]



Adam’s Accident + 36 Week Pregnancy Update

Have you ever heard the saying "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans"? Well I had plans. I have about a month left till this baby is due and I've been trying to finish up the guest room, boy's room, and baby prep in the next month so that I can relax with my newborn and not have a big to-do list. I had two posts a week (a lot for … [Read more...]



Mexico, 23 week pregnancy update, and help with baby names

It's been a little quiet around here lately, but for good reason...Adam and I got back from a vacation earlier this week! We went to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico for five days, and it was amazing. This summer when Adam graduated from the police academy and we celebrated out 10th anniversary, he told me he wanted to go on a vacation. I was … [Read more...]



Three

I've been less than honest with y'all lately. I know, you thought you could trust me...but the truth is I've been keeping a secret. A big secret, one that has taken over my life for the last few months. It's time to let the cat out of the bag... Pretty soon I'm going to be a mother of three! (I know those aren't exactly tiny little baby … [Read more...]



Levi’s One! (A Year Of Pictures)

Today is my little Levi's first birthday. I can't decide if I'm really excited about it, or completely sad. I want him to be my sweet little baby forever, but at the same time each day he becomes more fun and lets me see a little more of his adorable personality. Also, the older he gets the more him and Elijah play, and that is certainly a good … [Read more...]



Six Months and Two

Warning: There are absolutely NO creative ideas in this post. It's chock full of adorable kid pictures and me gushing about how cute they are and how fast they're growing. That's it. Consider yourself officially warned. Friday Levi turned six months old. It went by so quickly... it seems like just yesterday that I wrote this post all about having … [Read more...]



One Month

My sweet little Levi turned one month old yesterday.   The month flew by, though at the same time it has been the longest month of my life. Only a parent can understand how both statements can be 100% true.He has grown like a weed. He is already at nearly 11 pounds and 22.5 inches. How in the world did he grow 4 inches in one month? Before long he … [Read more...]



Meet Levi

Our little team green baby has arrived.... welcome to the world little Levi! He came on Thursday, October 20th (at 39weeks and 5 days) and weighs in at a whopping (for me) 7lbs 11oz.  Oh, and a very short 18.5 inches. He is totally adorable and looks nothing like my other son  (who was also totally adorable).  Look at all that thick black hair … [Read more...]



Nesting Kicks In

I'm 32 weeks now and the nesting instinct has finally kicked in. I feel the need to complete the nursery, and complete it NOW.  Elijah and the new baby will be sharing a room, so I don't have to set up a nursery from scratch, though that might actually be easier. Elijah's room never really got finished...we moved into this house when he was six … [Read more...]



Cloth Diapers Explained

I've had quite a few questions about my sons cloth diapers, so I figured I'd just write a post about it. I'm no cloth diaper expert, but after 17 months I've found what works, what doesn't, what I would recommend and what you should definitely NOT buy. So here we go! . When I first heard of cloth diapering I was like "people still do that?" It … [Read more...]
