grandmas are the best

Memorial weekend was far too short, but GREAT! My mom and her man, Mark flew in Thursday night and left Monday afternoon. We showed Mark the sights, enjoyed the outdoors, and soaked up lots of cuddles and kisses from Grandma. Sad they are already gone, but luckily this time we don't have to wait as long to see her again. Only five more weeks yay! Already counting down.

Mondays are the hardest day for me to feel motivated. Lets just say today me and babies didn't get dressed and ready for the day until 2:30. Aaaand I didn't get out of bed until 10:00... only to feed babies. I was a bad mom today.

I dream of going to Venice one day with my hubby.

I have a million projects I want to do and although I complain sometimes that I don't have enough time half the time it is because my motivation is on empty.

I'm sick of my hair. I don't want to dye it because that gets pricey having to keep it up, but I don't want to cut it because every time I do I regret it and my hair takes FOREVER to grow back.

I envy people that can write good. I have tons of thoughts and always think "I should blog about that", but when I go sit at my computer and start writing I think "this sounds dumb" and delete it. I am the worst too, at spelling and punctuation (I had to think about that "too" and decide if it needed two o's or one and still don't even know if I got it right :)  so please don't pay to close attention when I write.

I miss my mom terribly. There are so many days I wish I could just hop in a car and go visit her.

I have tried multiple times to stop drinking Diet Coke, but honestly I don't want to stop drinking it. It is so good and some days you just need a Diet Coke and a holiday Reese's to cheer you up.

I am very OCD. When I would visit my dad in the summer and then come back home I could tell if someone had moved something out of it's place, in my room. Obsess much! I have gotten a little bit better, I think but not much.

I want to be a part time photographer. At the moment I am more of a once a month photographer. But now that I have this mom thing down a little better I am slowly working on getting my website presentable. I love making people smile and capturing those special moments, but sometimes get discouraged and think there are so many better photographers out there I should probably just stick to being a full time mom. But now thinking about it, that can be discouraging as well sometimes and I'm not quitting that.

I love being in the pool and can't wait to spend the majority of my summer there this year with babies!

Hope you had a great Monday and were more productive than me!!

dreaming of new clothes

My birthday couldn't come any sooner. I am craving some new clothes so bad. I am loving all the bright colors that are in style now and want them to come cheer up my closest. 
On my list to find...
1. Neon pink something. I have never liked the color Neon pink but as of recently I'm a little obsessed with having a piece in my wardrobe.
2. Peter pan shirt. 
3. Lace shirt. 
4. Bright colored pencil skirt. 
5. Shirt with a loose tie in the front. 
6. Mint skinny jeans.

six months

It may not look like I'm making improvements on making a little time for blogging, but it is happening. This is a record for me to get their monthly update up within a week of their actual monthaversary. Maybe the rest of the month I'll actually make time to sit down and post about something else. Greg is about half way done with is GMAT class which makes me happy. Honestly though it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be to have him away from home so much. I just kept myself busy and in fact got a lot of stuff done cause a big chunk of cuddle time was taken out of my schedule. Which probably contributed to the fact that I am so on top of blogging. So here is the usual :) 

Alta baby, you are so happy these days. As long as you are not hungry you are so smiley. We absolutely love it!! You love to be outside of the house. You are so enthralled with what is happening around you. As long as you are out and about you can skip your naps and you are still so content. Once you are tired enough you will just fall asleep where ever, in your car seat, in Mama's arms ( my favorite) or on Daddy's lap. This past month you have started to talk a ton. One day I feel like you just realized you had a little voice and now you are constantly babbling. We don't swaddle you anymore for bed time because you have learned to roll from your back to your tummy. Recently we have found you sleeping on your tummy and it the cutest thing ever. You love playing in the exer saucer. When Jayden is in it you look at him in envy and as soon as I switch you guys he does the same :). You can sit up with help. You have started eating oatmeal which you love. After I give you your first bite you get this huge smile on your face with a mouth full of oatmeal. Love you baby girl! xoxo

Jaydster, you look so grown up. I swear you guys get cuter and cuter every day. I can't handle it. I just want a little nibble of those cute cheeks all the time. Luckily when I do get one you think it is pretty funny. You are quite the opposite of Alta :). You love to be home, you are our little homebody. You are generally happy when we go out, but there is a big difference when we get home. I think has partly to do with the fact that you love your naps. You sleep a lot more than Alta during the day. You have started to sit up with help. The other day I had you in my lap and it was pretty cute you would have your face practically between your legs and then all of a sudden shoot up, doing some sit ups. You love playing in the exer saucer. When you are tired and getting fussy we go lay you down in your crib and all of a sudden you get a huge smile on your face and do a little happy dance, wiggle. Like I said you love your naps. You love grabbing your toes and do it constantly now. You sometimes suck your thumb. You aren't much of a binkie baby. You like it every once in a while, but usually just play with it when you have it. Lately you have been biting on it while pulling it out of your mouth so it makes a little pop sound. You have started eating oatmeal and will eat it ,but always seem a little disgusted by it :). You LOVE having your face covered. When we lay you in your crib we give you your little lion that you use to cover your face with and sometimes when you are eating a bottle you cover your eyes with your hand. Love you baby boy! xoxo
