Desitin Man



When I am done with my shower in the mornings I open up the bathroom door so that Jaxon can run around. It took me a couple of minutes before I realized he was being really quiet...so when I found Jaxon he had gotten into one of the old diaper bags that I had apparently left some diaper cream in and this is what happened. So of course I thought it was picture worthy, and then looked at the back of the desitin after and saw that it says to call poison control if they swallow any. What a great mom right?!

Is it so wrong???


So...when Mark was on his way home from class tonight he saw that someone had put a desk, dvd player, and power strip in the garbage. He decided to bring it home. I thought it was so neat that I thought I would go in my car and see if I could find something too...and I found the hot wheels car in the garbage as well!!! Is that so wrong?

You know you are a mom when....

You did your best to be patient with you baby all day long while they hung on your leg, scream, cry, throw tantrums, etc. You made it through the rough hours of 3-5 and start making dinner. Dad (your husband) walks in the door and you breath a sigh of relief. You put baby in their high chair to join you for dinner and it lasts all of 2 min. You let them play around while you and husband finish dinner. You start to clean dinner up while baby is of course clinging to your leg and screaming. Of course by this time of day I am pretty good at ignoring it, but just so happen to look down and notice poop all over his hands, back, and on his face. SICK. You quickly pick him up and hold him out and head straight to the bathroom to clean up and give him a bath. Just another day of being a MOM.

BINKY

Alina is the baby of our family. When we were kids my older sister Jenny started calling her stinky for a nickname and my mom did not approve. As a result...for some reason it changed to Binky and it has stuck ever since. I struggle with words to describe the emotions that I am feeling right now. There is a bond that happens between sisters that is not just forged because of our blood relation. It is stronger than that alone. Alina may be my baby sister but I look up to her more than she has ever known. She is one of the angels that I have been blessed to have in my life. She is caring and kind, selfless and serving, quiet and gentle, humble and hopeful. She is full of life and everything that is beautiful and she has a way of making everything around her the same as well. This week my sweet baby sister got engaged. I want her to know how much she means to me and how much I love her. I wish her all the best in her future to come. Alina I love you!

Productive...

While Mark is at school on Monday and Wednesday nights I try to use my time wisely. Usually I will clean or organize something in the house, but on Monday I made this to put up in Jaxon's room. Considering that I am not the most creative craft person, I thought it turned out pretty good. It is kinda hard to see in the picture but it is a collage of things from Jaxon's birth like wrist bands, cards, pictures, etc.

The Little Things...

And just so you know, I was like 38 weeks pregnant here(hence the HUGE butt!)
A year ago in July we moved into our first house. We LOVE our house. We knew our first one was not going to be our DREAM house and that there were going to be a couple of things that we were going to have to settle on. As many of you know, the back yard was one of them. We have a really nice patio, but the backyard is SUPER small. And that is okay right now because we LOVE the house......But today was the first day that I took my sweet baby boy in the backyard with my dog and played catch and ran through the sprinkler. How much better does it get than that??? My life may not be perfect....but I LOVE my life:)
