Life Lately

Cullyn is suddenly a little boy.  He prefers a sippy cup of milk {his sister's} over a bottle of milk.  He insists on holding his own bottle.  He is 100% on table food. I can't believe he isn't walking yet, but he's almost standing unassisted.  He is into everything, all of the time!  Last night he climbed out of the bathtub, sat on the bathroom rug and peed.  As much as it drives me crazy, I love it.  He's all boy!  For that, I'm thankful.  I can't believe I'll be taking his 11 month photos this weekend.  And I made his first birthday invites yesterday...how is that possible?!

The weather yesterday has me craving spring so badly.  It was sunny and 65.  I left work early, ran home to change clothes, and grabbed a load of stuff to drop of at the consignment shop.  Then I grabbed the kids early from daycare.  I had planned to take them to the park, but it was pretty muddy and it we only had a half hour before my class started at the gym, so we grabbed froyo and ate it outside instead.  Side note:this was our first froyo experience {and we didn't get that much} but it was so cheap!  Is this normal?  I mean our bill was less than $1.50.  Again, we just shared a small one and I had a 10% off coupon, but we did get a few toppings and yogurt isn't cheap.  I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I was shocked how cheap it was.  Anyways, after working out, Adam took Cullyn inside and started supper so Jordy and I went outside to splash in the puddles.  It was so much fun.  She was giggling like crazy saying 'do dat gin mama' :)

Speaking of Jordyn, she's speaking in full {adorable!} sentences all of the time.  {*I need to get that sweet voice recorded, I am so bad at video!} Anyways, I can't get enough of my adorable Jordy right now.  She's essentially a mini me.  She insists on doing everything herself {getting dressed-everything, getting in and out of her the car, opening/closing doors, etc.} and hates to have her hands dirty.  We hear 'need a keenex, peese' {Kleenex, please--she really means napkin} a lot.  Speaking of saying one thing and meaning another, she totally has hot and cold and up and down mixed up.  For instance, she always says 'mama, window up, peese' when she really wants it down.  Or if something is hot {water, food, etc.} 'dat cowd' when she really means hot. I'm assuming this is normal {I'll confirm with our pediatrician at Cullyn's 1 year appointment}, but for now it's just adorable.

The other day one of my students asked me where my dress was from {she wanted to go one} and I had to tell her it's a maternity tunic.  I was totally embarrassed!  {side note: makes me feel better about 'splurging' for the Jessica Simpson piece last year--haha!} Nope, I'm not pregnant, I just haven't got myself new clothes since I had Jordyn.  Sad, I know!  So, I've been on the lookout for cute clothes since then.  I scored 3 tops {+ a pair of leggings for J}from SexyModest for $100.  And I got two new tunics {I've been into leggings lately} for $35.  I'm trying to find universal pieces that I can layer {read: not chevron} at a decent price.  I also splurged on a pair of Sperry {hello, Florida wedding this year!} and Hunter boots {an absolute must for a photographer in Iowa this year!}  Oh and I also got two new sports bras, two workout tanks, and a pair of capri leggings from Old Navy to workout in for less than $75.

Speaking of working out, Adam has lost over 20 pounds & I'm down 15.  I'm hoping to write more about that one day next week.  Our routine, what's working for us, etc.  Including a reader request for tips on the treadmill and keeping you focused at the gym.

Okay that's all I have time for today…I have one more big topic on my mind, but it'll have to wait.

  1. Random suggestion - Target has some amazingly comfy solid color tees that you can layer with scarves and chunky necklaces and cardigans. I have been living in them {now that I am pregnant} but plan on keeping that trend post baby. The look with a scarf or chunky necklace and jeans is so effortless and you can just accessorize!!
