Bubble fest

Saturday was Bubble fest with HG's Girl Scout troop. The girls loved every minute of it.  Plus it allowed some one on one time with Hailey Grace. Being the oldest with a baby in the house, this is a rare thing. One of her best friends rode with us to make it even more special. We were almost an hour from our house so Sonic was a must.

13 months

Oh sweet Hudson has hit 13 months.  It seems that overnight he went from being a cuddly little baby to a beast of a toddler.  He walks runs at top speed all over the place.  It is crazy how much you chase little one year olds. 

Hudson talks, he talks a lot. Even more so than last month. His new word this month is kiss. Not kiss like you are thinking but more along the lines of Chris.  I was yelling for Chris one day and Hudson instantly picked it up.  The girls laughed so now he loves saying it.  Hudson also loves saying this. 

Sleep is going so much better. We are still signed up for a sleep study just in case but we're hoping to be able to cancel it. A typical night is 7:00-5:45.  He is soaked by then so I change his diaper and clothes if needed then put him back in the crib. I had him a thing of milk and a few toys.  Sometimes he will go back to sleep and others he will sit in there and play until 7:15. I rarely get him out of the crib before 7.  A little different than his 12th month but a whole world of difference from his 11th month. While I would love him to sleep until 8, our house is typically loud and going full force by 8.  The girls are downstairs eating, watching for the bus while the husband and I are dressing for the day.  
This might have gotten stuck on him........


You love your sisters.


You love to make messes.
BIG BIG BIG messes.


You love music and to dance.



And you put up with your sisters and their friends playing dress up.












We joke that you might be a janitor one day.  you love to clean. 

Our mornings were spent at gymnastics for many months. It is so nice to just be up there for an hour now.  You do not enjoy waiting around for an hour.

Happy 13 month sweet Hudson

Snowed In


It snows often here in Indiana so it has quickly become part of day to day life for us. But we haven't had too many big snows.  Sure, we've had enough to shovel or cover our drive way in ice.  In the last 24 hours, we have had beautiful snow.  The light, fluffy, perfect ski slope snow.  I guess it is good that it happened just as the kids were recovering from their RSV and other sickness.  HG stayed home on Friday due to a belly ache and by 3, we were all suffering a belly ache.  Thankfully, we all woke back to normal today.

Hudson slept 7:45-6:30 so we were peeking out the windows before dawn this morning.

Everything was covered but it continued off and on all day.
Next up, Hailey.  My little princess who used to sleep until 10 now rises early thanks to school
He was amazed at the snow.
Kept watching it.
And looking for Camo.


Sweet Harper managed to finish off a pint of blueberries.
Fruit, this girl survives on fruit.
And greek yogurt.
Camo had a rough Thursday and Friday morning so we loaded him up for the kennel.
When I say rough, think of barking and whining for 24 hours nonstop.
He kept the girls up 3 hours past bed time, went in and out 10 times between midnight and 7 in the morning.  Did I mention he was barking so loud that he woke Hudson up at 3 who was up until 6:30.  AND he woke Harper up at 3:30.  I promised her I would come lay down with her when I got hudson and Camo back down.  That was 6:30.  Poor girl called out asking if I was going to come lay with her.  I have no idea if she was in there waiting for 3 hours or if she fell asleep and Camo woke her up again.  You better believe I crawled right next to her and held her forever.
He finally got a nap .
Never a dull moment.
Monster teeth?
It was so deep.
The kids wanted to make snow ice cream.


While hudson took his afternoon nap, I bundled the girls and we headed outside.  Harper was able to stay 10 minutes then went back inside for goldfish and hot chocolate with Doc McStuffins.
Hailey Grace and I were out there 90 minutes.
I burned well over 1,000 calories shoveling that snow.


Pure joy.




Got it done, put ice melt out since the temps will begin dropping again tomorrow.
I told the husband he was in charge of shoveling the next storm, Ive done the last two.
We're trying essential oils with Hudson right now.  Hoping it calms and helps him continue to sleep decent so we don't have to go through with the sleep study in April.
The girls were beat tonight.  Harper out at 7, HG by 7:30.
Early bed times on a Saturday.  Hudson partied until 7:45.


In the middle of a snow storm, it is always fun to order new spring or summer clothing.  While I don't mind the cold or snow (just hate the wind), I am looking forward to the warm sun providing the vitamin D our bodies needs.  The husband and I have a trip soon and needed easy, cute stuff to pack.  Can't beat great prices either!  One I found on IG and the other FB. Crazy huh?



The husband is on a plane back to Indiana from sunny California.  We are excited for him to get home and gear up for another week of cold.
