Best $12 I ever spent

I came across this sock monkey hat on one of my "deal of the day" websites. I instantly fell in love with it and thought, "Well Brennan's been getting Valentine money and I am starting to feel like I'll never have enough money for this custom diaper...so why not?!" It came today and it is seriously the sweetest hat, EVER. Not only is it amazingly soft but he has plenty of room to grow into it for next year (I still can't believe a size 1-2 year could look so good on him).

So what do you think of our little sock monkey?!

President's Day weekend

We had a great long weekend!

We spent Thursday packing up the camper and headed out early Friday morning. I know I wasn't driving but it really didn't seem like a terrible trip. Both boys were good for the 3 hours it took us to get there.

I am officially in love with our camper. We were able to take warm showers, cook cornbread and popcorn, watch movies on our flat screen, sleep in a heated area, and pee in our own toilet. It was FANTASTIC.

Overall Chad said the riding wasn't that great. There were I think a total of 3 or 4 broken quads. Our friend took me out on his Razr and it was a blast. Nothing quite gets your heart pumping like going over the peak of a sand dune and not being able to see what's coming. Kaeden got to ride our friend's son's mini quad and he loved it. I'm sure he will be asking for one of his own in the very near future.









Brennan turned 5 months on Saturday, I was only able to snap a few "5 month" pics but at least I got some!













Overall we had a great weekend, but it's good to be back home. We just have lots of cleaning, unpacking and laundry to do!

Happy Valentine's Day

Did Cupid pay a visit to your house?

He sure came to mine!

*Yes, I did spend my entire afternoon making him angel wings out of coffee filters, and an arrow out of a wooden dowel and construction paper. I'm pretty sure despite all the effort that went into this he will hate me in about 14 more years.*











I wanted to say a really big THANK YOU to those of your who sent Valentine cards and wishes to the boys. It really excites Kaeden to get mail. He has able to save up enough Valentine money to buy something he really wanted and he was SO excited. It really makes my heart happy that we have the family we do that take the time to just drop him (and Brennan) a note that says, "I love you and I'm thinking about you". On that same note, if you are sending Brennan money, we are setting it off to the side for things that we might need for him (can you say custom made military ABU diaper LOL) or want later on.

Long time no blog!

I'm not exactly sure what I've been doing the past 12 days, but I guess I've been busy.

I was volunteering at school all week last week, that was fun(ish).

Chad and I bought a toyhauler for camping. We will be taking it out to the dunes next weekend, so I'll have lots of pictures of it then :D

Brennan has been "teething" pretty bad. The other night he was so miserable so we gave him a popcicle. He "ate" about 1/4 of it and it really seemed to help.



Yesterday, he had his first foods. I started him off with some baby oatmeal cereal and he didn't care for it at all. He ended up throwing it up. We gave him some applesauce later that evening and it was much more successful. I used the baby bullet for the first time and made him some bananas for the next few days.




Here is also something I find so very funny. I put Brennan in an outfit that Kaeden wore on his 1st birthday, and it FITS. It freaking fits.

Here is Kaeden on his first birthday:




And here is Brennan at 4 months and 3 weeks:

Happy (really early) Valentine's Day

I seriously couldn't wait to post this!

Happy February!

I was going to write a long post about how exhuasted I am being home alone with the kids the week but honestly, I'm just too exhuasted. I took Valentine pictures today. I KNOW you guys are going to love them!
