Cayson 30 month

Oh my sweet baby Cayson, how are you 2 1/2 years old already. I sound like a broken record but I'm in shock, time has flown way too fast!! You are the sweetest thing, the busiest thing and 1000% boy! I adore  you and all your boyness, ha;)You are wild, you are sweet, you are cuddly, you are so lovable!! 

Personality: 
You are very outgoing but also very timid. If sissy is around you are all over whatever she is doing, you are her biggest fan. You adore her, follow her around and copy everything she does. You guys are so adorable when you play well together but are exhausting when you fight! You are equally sensitive and outgoing. You don't like to get in trouble just like your sister, you hate time outs and quickly come for cuddles. You are always ALL over the place, kicking things down, throwing things, climbing-that 1000% boy part;) You are my biggest cuddler though and I hope it never changes. 

Talking:
Oh Cayson you are talking SO, SO much all of a sudden. I swear one week you woke up and I couldn't believe it. I understand probably 75% of what you say but you are nonstop talking these days. My favorites right now that I hope to get on video are, "mommy, where are you?"-when I'm usually in my room and you can't find me. "I already did"-when I ask you to do something that you've done already. "Pray, pray, pray, pray, pray"-you always say it five times at bedtime as you wait for me and sissy to hold your hands. You then nod with the cutest over bite as Isabella or I pray!-It's my favorite! "I wuv you""I hold it"-how you negotiate when I say you can't eat candy, you just want to hold it, ha! I  need to get more of your sweet little voice on camera because it changes all too quickly:(

Eating:
You are a great eater. You LOVE broccoli, any fruit, cheese, milk, and above all else you LOVE tweats. You are my sweets lover. You love chocolate, really any candy you lay your eyes on. You are a snacker like your sister but eat at least 2 really good meals for me. You have to eat before you get your treats and this usually works;) You aren't a huge thing but you have an appetite and will probably be tall and skinny like your daddy was. You drink milk but don't chug it, neither you or your sister ever really have. You love just about anything-coffee, hot tea, juice, chocolate milk, sparkling water-which is the complete opposite of your sister. I let you taste things thinking you would dislike them like your sister but nope!

Sleep:
We are finally getting rewarded for all the sleep you did not do for so long. Over the last 6 months you were not only transitioned to a toddler bed but now to a queen bed. You absolutely love your queen bed and you and sister have jump parties before bed every night. You nap usually 1-3ish and sleep 7:30-8. You can take over an hour to fall asleep some nights but are completely content playing and entertaining yourself until you fall asleep. For bed you have to have 2 Shopkins, your fox and 2 bowties-yep 2 bowties. Who knows, you are currently obsessed with your bowties;) We brush teeth, we read books, we pray, pray, pray, pray, pray and then we tickle your back. You insist sissy and I both tickle your back and must then kiss you on your wips. If we miss you lips and catch a cheek you cry until we appropriately nail it on the lips! It's quite adorable!

Favorites:
You are currently addicted to Shopkins-you ask for them all the time and we have to pray for more every night, ha! You love iPad time and playing games on mommy's phone. You mostly watch Youtube kid videos and are so good at matching games. You love to cuddle, you like to sit in my lap and read books or play on your iPad. You always want to help me cook and will pull up a chair to help me. You love to grab you and sister's vitamins and hand hers out:) You love to climb and jump and throw things. You really are so much boy!! I adore it! You love to get your haircut and I think its because you get a sucker;) You are loving school these days and are so cute carrying in your own backpack and holding sister's hand. 

Potty training:
You are officially potty trained. You were ready probably 6 months months before I finally had the time and took the plunge, but this worked in my favor for sure! You were sick several weeks ago so we were quarantined at home so I decided on a whim to just make it happen! You had zero accidents day 1! Hallelujah! You are still in a pull up for naps and bedtime and most often wake up wet so I think this will take a little longer than your sis did but I'm 100% okay with that! You on occasion ask for a diaper because well I totally understand it's easier and more convenient but I just remind you they are for baby Addilyn so you move on! I'm so proud of you! I get 2 whole months for the first time in 4.5 years with no baby in diapers! Holla!

Length: 36.5 in (54%ile)

Bachelorette weekend cabin style

This weekend we headed to Broken Bow to celebrate my littlest sister's Bachelorette weekend. Can't believe she will be tying the knot in 20 days, I swear she is still 10!! She is serisouly the most beautiful girl inside and out. I am so excited for her and so proud of the beautiful woman she has become. I was in charge of planning a Bachelorette weekend for 20 girls and not gonna lie I felt inadequate and a little overwhelmed. I mean I hadn't planned a bachelorette party in over 6 years! I gave my sis several options and she liked the cabin in OK option the best! It was so fun. I consulted Airbnb and found the cutest cabin. We headed down Friday and had a relaxing night sipping wine (me some cranberry juice ha) around the table and chatting all night. Saturday we set off on a hike at Beaver's Bend State Park after a little breakfast. We may have gone on a 10 minute detour, but we made it. I told the girls I have planned a ton of parties but never a State Park hike ha! After the hike we headed back for lunch and showers before heading out for wine tasting and dinner. After dinner we headed back for her lingerie shower, adorable girl time, hot tubbing, chatting, so fun! We all headed back Sunday after a quick breakfast! Such a fun weekend. I highly recommend Broken Bow for a quick weekend family or girl's weekend getaway!

It was a blast! Maybe I'll work on a post on what to buy, pack, plan for a weekend away for 20+ people! I was overwhelmed at first at the thought of it but it all came together.

Baby #3 must haves




Knowing this will likely be my last baby has me having all the feels and also wanting to buy EVERY adorable thing I find! I've done tons of shopping small for this little one and am loving every detail. This is just a few of my favorites and must have essentials. 

Monitor-we thankfully invested in this monitor with our first and though we had to buy a whole new unit last time I am hoping we can get away with just adding a camera onto it this time around. I love that you can put up to 4 cameras on the same monitor and it will scroll through each room. We have loved this monitor, it is touch screen, has incredible night vision, talk back mode and zoom in feature. We literally use it every nap and every night! You can buy the single monitor or just the extra camera. I love that you can buy the double straight away, the single or just add on as needed:)

 Car seat-I was hoping to get away without buying a new car seat this time around but the hubs accidentally mutilated our old one removing it so we had to get a new one. Honestly once  I saw this one and fell in love I wasn't that sad about it;) It's even more beautiful in person. And the Toddler car seat is to die for, I would totally snatch it in a heart beat if I wasn't worried my son would ruin it the first instant he sat in it;)

 Wrap-I used my Ergo carrier and Moby wrap tons with Cayson and I know with chasing around 2 other toddlers wearing sweet Addilyn will be a must so I had to grab this precious Solly Wrap. The color is so precious;)

Swaddle/Name swaddle-Because every baby needs their own new swaddles right? I fell in love with this camel Max + Moose swaddle and had to have it. I am obsessed with our Addilyn name swaddle and will definitely be grabbing these adorable Floral Little Unicorn muslin swaddles

Pacifier-These Natursutten pacifiers were pretty new when I had Cayson and he had alrady fallen in love with his Nuby pacifier so I never tried them but I can't wait to try them with Addilyn. I love that they are made out of natural rubber with no BPA, nitrosamines, PVC, phthalates, chemical softeners or artifical coloring. Umm sign me up, yes please. And this and this adorable pacifier clips, yes!!

Stroller-Hands down probably one of the best purchases we made. It has grown with our family and is a must have if you think you will have more than one child. You start with a single and it becomes a triple. We have the skateboard that my toddlers love and the bassinet piece that is SO perfect for newborns. I can't rave about it enough. It is pricey to start but much cheaper than having to buy a whole new stroller when adding little ones to the family. We also have a single and double Bob that we got at incredible prices and use for outdoors activities or races. 

Diaper bag-With Isabella, I had a beautiful black and cream Petunia Pickle bottom diaper bag and with Cayson I used my big LV with a diaper changing pad similar to this inside. I knew this time around I really wanted a back pack so I could have all arms and shoulders free and I fell in love with this Fawn design bag months and months ago and decided it was the one:) can't wait to use it.

Nursing cover-I have been obsessed with these incredible 360 nursing/car seat/shopping cart covers since they came out. I knew this baby I absolutely had to have one. I took forever to decide on one but since I'm going with lots of floral and pale pink I decided this was the one! These are genius!

Dock a tot-I haven't made the plunge and purchased one yet but I have heard they are all the rave! If Addilyn isn't a great sleeper I just might have to make the purchase. I did decide on an adorable Moses basket with rocking stand this time around in lieu of the pack n play in our room:) Can't wait, hope she loves it!!

Can't believe we only have 11 weeks to go!! Eek!!

Friday Favorites


Linking up with Shea over at Mix and Match Momma, Erika, and Narci today to share my Friday favorites.


Hello Friday! Fancy meeting you again, you seem to sneak up faster and faster each week! Here are some of my favorites for this week...

ONE. Yoga mat/Yoga strap-I have been in desperate need of a new yoga mat since I offered mine to the sweet police officer who helped change my flat tire and it got covered in grease! I finally went into Lululemon yesterday and bought the softest, most durable feeling yoga mat! I can't wait to use it! I bought the navy version:) I have had the strap for my old mat and I love it. It's a must when you are carrying in a yoga mat and two toddlers to the gym:)

Yoga strap

TWO. Quilt/Euro sham-I have been lusting over this quilt and shams for what feels like years...we were in literally desperate need for a new one and I FINALLY took the plunge and purchased them yesterday!! I literally cannot wait for them to arrive!! Momma is so excited. Our room has needed a little face lift:)


THREE. Eye concealer-Pregnancy insomnia is SO real. It's so rough on me and after bragging that I don't usually have to deal with bags under my eyes (yep, that's what I get) I have the worst bags under my eyes for the first time in my life. Two newborns didn't do it but apparently 2 toddlers and pregnancy insomnia did me in. I am loving this instant age rewind. I plan to try some Rodan + Fields eye cream after baby arrives (I'm weird about products while I'm pregnant, though I am sure they are perfectly safe). I'll update you on the progress of those once I use it! People swear by it!

Eye concealer


FOUR. Support hose-call me an old lady but my OB finally forced me to buy some after I had severe aching and swelling in my legs after an 8 hour surgery day and you guys my life has been changed! I'm a believer! My legs Wednesday after about the same time in the OR didn't hurt near as bad and I had zero swelling, can I get an amen. I know they aren't sexy but neither are spider veins so give me all the support hose ha!


FIVE. Third trimester...we are officially there people! I cannot believe it! I honestly need the next 12ish weeks to slow down a tad! I cannot wait to meet sweet Addilyn but there is still SO much to do. Her nursery is not even close to being finished and neither is our car and car seat rearrangement situation! I better get on it, I guess!! Also this Letter Folk Co sign is a favorite, if you don't have one run....so fun!


Happy Friday friends!
