weekly three.

I can't believe it is Friday! I almost forgot to get this post ready last night, but while I was rocking Solomon to sleep I realized it was Thursday, and not Wednesday. It's clearly been a busy week but it has been a good one. We are ready for some holiday fun with Memorial Day weekend and a little more birthday celebrations for Peter & his mom. That's always our Memorial Day plans and I love having family time and celebrating two very sweet people! Hope you enjoy your weekend!!


Brownies and ice cream and gifts after taco night for my man's birthday! 
Such a great way to start the week on Monday!!


My new favorite breakfast!! Greek yogurt, granola, banana and honey!
So yummy and filling, I'm not starving an hour later, which is so awesome.


This cutie watching me cook... love him so much!

sweet family.


I'm so excited to share these sweet, sweet pictures from Mother's Day weekend!! As always, I'm so thankful for my friend Jocie sharing her talent with us and taking these shots! Peter's sister mentioned taking some family photos since the whole family would be in town and of course I was on board. I think everyone knows how much I love pictures around here... I can't help it. I love how these turned out and I'm so thankful for this family of ours!

Four Generations!!

This is definitely one of my favorites!!! The way he loves his Gigi makes my heart so happy.
I really don't know what I'd do without her, so, so thankful!

it's a special day.

Peter's Birthday is today!
I love birthdays and I really love him, so it is definitely a special day!! 
To celebrate his day, I thought I would share 11 Things that I'm thankful for and love about him.
I shared 11 Things a while ago, before we were married, and since I love him even deeper now, I wanted to share some more!


He loves the Lord and seeks Him & His will in everything.
I love that he never hides his faith and will openly share it with anyone. 


The fun we have when we travel together, it is one of my favorite things to do with him.
Seeing new places, eating amazing food and making memories!


He can make me laugh like no other!


I didn't just marry Peter, I got to marry into this crazy family!
Yes, they are crazy, but I love it for some reason?!?


He makes awesome coffee!!!


He taught me the love of great beer, Mmmm!!!


He always loves to dance with me! 
His dance skills are what made me notice him in the first place, after all.


The way he supported me during pregnancy and giving birth to Solomon is something
I will never forget. He was the best partner and the amount of strength that he gave me was unreal!


He made me a momma and helped me create our precious boy!


He is such a fun daddy and loves being a father so much! 
I'm so thankful for his heart and how hands on he is with everything, 
Solomon and I are so lucky!!

I would follow him anywhere! He makes being a submissive, helpful, & loving
wife easy and fun. I trust him because I know that he trusts the Lord and that is something
I will always love about him and be thankful for. 

Love you so much, babe!
& HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

weekly three.

It has been such a sweet week! Peter has been home for a while now and I feel like we are getting into the spring time groove. It is so wonderful to have him home and not feel a pending work trip creeping up on us. Solomon is obsessed with his daddy and I love watching them together. My sweet guys, I'm excited for a laid back weekend with them, hiding from all the rain! Hope yours is great!!!

Gelato on a Monday afternoon, all is right in the world! 
& they had a peanut butter flavor for the first time.... Eeeep. 


I wish I read this book the second I had Solomon and realized that I didn't want to do the "training" type parenting style. My friend Laura said one time that Attachment Parenting should be called common sense parenting, and that is so true, but I think I would have questioned myself a lot less if I had this book to go by from the start. Oh well, add this to the list of things I will know for the next kid, ha!


Wearing my S necklace for the first time!! I misplaced this sweet Christmas gift from my cousin and recently found it, I love it and Solomon loves to play with it while he nurses. 

a day in our life // 002

I loved sharing our day back in January and I wanted to start this series because I thought it would be fun to remember the little parts of my day during the stages of being a stay at home mom. The days have changed quite a bit since Solomon is eating three meals a day and crawling everywhere now, so I thought it would be fun to write down and capture all the little details in our life at this moment. 


Wednesday // 05.18.16

Solomon wouldn't sleep in his crib last night so we cuddled most of the night in the bed. Thankfully he slept like a rock but drank a lot of milk and was attached to me almost every time I woke up. Sometimes I just have to be his passy and feed him all night. Last night was one of those nights. It is sweet to be needed and I love to cuddle with him as long as he's not fighting sleep and crying! ;)




9:00 - wake up for the morning
We lay in bed and cuddle some more and take some snapchat pictures because it is a fun way to start the day. He thinks it is funny to see his face change shapes and I personally loved the old lady face because I definitely feel this way when I first wake up! HA! 



9:20 - coffee and playtime
After a diaper change upstairs we come downstairs to start our morning routine. I'm so thankful that Solomon has started to love playing by himself the past few weeks. His morning always starts with him playing in his pack and play while I enjoy my coffee in the living room floor and do some blogging things. (aka, this.) 



10:10 - eat breakfast
I get him out of the pack and play and we eat a banana together while he plays with some toys and I watch The Voice from last night. Tuesday and Wednesday mornings are a favorite because of this reason!! I'm going to be so sad when the season is over.



10:35 - laundry
Time to fold laundry and wash diapers while Solomon is playing with toys in the living room beside me. 



10:45 - milk break
He was being super fussy and no toys would make him happy so I asked if he wanted some milk and he crawled over to me as fast as he could and crawled in my lap. I melted of course.... The sweetest boy alive! 



11:05 - get ready for nap
Head upstairs to change a dirty diaper and also change the crib sheets since they needed to be changed while I let him play on the floor with his toys in his room. The little stinker dirties his diaper AGAIN and I fight him to change it. He's not a fan of changing diapers recently! 


11:30 - naptime
He's tired and yawning so we rock and he drinks milk till he falls asleep. 



11:40  - busy time
Peanut is sleeping in the crib so I get ready for the day and start to clean the house since is a mess from the past two busy days. I also hang the diapers to dry & put in a load of laundry. Peter comes home for lunch so he heats up some pita bread for me so I can eat quickly while I clean and fold more laundry. I'm learning that parenthood pretty much means you never stop doing laundry. 


12:20 - finish lunch and relax
The folding is done for now and I finish eating my lunch and guzzle down some water since I haven't been drinking enough today. Peter and I hang out and watch some TV before he heads back to work. 



1:20 - wake up
Little man is awake so I run the folded laundry upstairs to put them away before going to grab him. We do the normal, diaper change, change him out of his PJs, and then I finally start organizing all the clothes that he doesn't fit in anymore since I got the vacuum bags for storage. 



2:40 - lunch
He is getting cranky and clingy so I change his diaper, take him downstairs and give him some milk. After he is finished sipping on some milk, I start to heat up his lunch, sweet potatoes (with cinnamon for the first time!) and some yogurt. He loves it!!! 



3:10 - playtime 
Solomon is back in the pack and play while I clean up after lunch and put the clothes in the dryer that I washed earlier today. I let him play while I'm vacuuming the living room and kitchen. 

3:40 - more playtime
He is tired of playing solo and wants some attention from momma. We sit on the living room floor together and play until naptime at 4. 



4:00 - naptime
Upstairs for diaper change and I sit down to rock him and nurse him till he's snoozing. It takes about 10 minutes and he's in the crib for his nap while I run downstairs to edit this blog post and add the photos I've taken so far. 



5:00 - workout 
While I'm watching the news I get in the living room floor and do some yoga/pilates until he wakes up. 


5:15 - bad dream
I'm guessing he had a bad dream since he woke up with a scared cry. I went to get him and nursed him on the couch till he was happy and awake again. We played with his toys waiting for daddy to get home from work!


6:00 - daddy is home
Our favorite time of day! Peter is home and he takes Solomon out in the yard (an everyday thing that he loves!) and I go upstairs to freshen up and get ready to go out for dinner. We decided to go to Brixx tonight for pizza since we had a BOGO pizza coupon! 




The rest of the night was normal family time, my favorite!!! 

meeting Silas.



He is finally here! Solomon's little boy cousin from my side of the family. We have SO MANY boy cousins on daddy's side of the family so it is exciting to have a new one from my side. I don't think we will ever "catch up" but it is fun to try ;) 

Yesterday we went to the hospital to meet the new baby boy and my heart was racing with so many emotions. Look how tiny! Ah, my baby is so big!!! How did this happen so fast. I want another baby NOW! Man, I can't wait to be pregnant again. Calm down, breath, don't cry. Hahaha.... I was feeling all those things the second I held him! I think it killed me even more once I realized that Silas was born almost a whole pound bigger than Solomon was. My baby was even tinier than this?!? Waaaaah! The journey of motherhood is so bittersweet!! 

big sisters watching their brother drink some milk, I love this picture so much!!

And trying to get all the kids in one picture was crazy. Solomon was trying to grab his passy the entire time (the only time he has given any interest in the things, HA!) and I was so afraid of his big hands trying to grab tiny little Silas. 

We love you, little man!! Can't wait to see you grow up and watch all the fun you and Solomon will have together. Eight months apart will seem like nothing one day in the near future!
