Revampin’

Most of my day is spent in the kitchen. I know I’m not the only one! I’m either preparing, cooking, or cleaning in there.

& every mama knows that wherever you are, your little babes follow. I’m trying my best to soak in every second that they want to be near me because soon they will be grown & doing their own big kid things // so sad //

With that being said, it is mighty difficult to load & unload your dishwasher while your almost one year old has climbed inside. I needed to revamp my kitchen to stay appealing to the kiddos, but still give me room to do my mom stuff.

So move over dining room table, here comes the teepee!

Beckette & Major were beyond ecstatic to arrive to James’ grandparents’ living room with a teepee set up right in the center. Even better… We got to take it home!

The plus sign decals came from Urban Walls // they were so simple to put on & give any room some extra dimension without the mess of paint. Pure genius!

everyone’s favorite moccasins

Freshly picked moccs.
So what’s all the hype anyways?!
Well well well… Let me tell you.
To put it simply,
they are the best.

Susan is one incredible woman and it all flows down from her. She is innovative, practical, resourceful, hands on, and hilarious! She genuinely cares about about her customers and it is evident by the product she creates.

The moccasins themselves- they are 100% genuine leather, buttery soft, and come in a multitude of colors! They complete any outfit and the soft sole makes them excellent for little walkers.

In my opinion the suede are more durable and wear better for the long haul. They are also better for little crawlers who are dragging the tops of their feet all over the place.

Another thing that I love about them is how easy they are to slide on and how well they stay on! My kids won’t keep socks on for anything. They pull them off constantly or they slip off and then they are gone for good. I was slightly apprehensive about the moccs because I was nervous they’d kick them/pull them off. So far so good. I’ve never lost one and no one has ever even ripped on off them self! // knock on wood //

Finally, I have to just mention that their customer service is out of this world! Super helpful and accommodating!

the sibling bond.

20140508-083216.jpg

I only have two kids and that’s really how I feel- only. To me I don’t feel maxed out, passed my birthing years, or like our family is complete. I feel secure in the little reproductive break we are taking but I know this strike will end sooner than later.

However, when I go to the park or the the grocery store strangers are always putting their opinion on me, implying that I got my boy and my girl so I can just hang it up- mission accomplished. It’s weird. When I vocalize that we aren’t done having babies yet they are stunned! They look at me like I’m delusional! Really! And again I think just how weird THEY are!

See, I was never the mama who consider having only one child- and thank goodness since I was pregnant again by the time my first was six months old!!! Oops! But really, I always knew I wanted more and I always knew I wanted to give them siblings. So I mean I guess we could stop. I have a boy and a girl and they have each other. I could look at it like okay I did it cross that obstacle off the list but my heart doesn’t feel that way and one of the biggest determining factors for me is the sibling bond. You just can’t grasp just how sweet it is until you create it and watch it bloom before your eyes. It is easily one of my very favorite things about being a mama, just watching them love on each other so well. Siblings create a crazy dynamic and at times it is a bit overwhelming because I swear they learn how to team up and take you out so quickly! But even on the toughest days, nothing compares to the love.

Having multiple children is a lot of work. It is a stress on your body, your patience, and your wallet. HOWEVER, the reward is ten fold! Giving your child a sibling is one of the very best gifts you will ever ever give them! I mean imagine them stuck with crazy you || ALONE || forever?!?! I mean that’s just not right! Give them some back up! Give them a forever buddy! Give them a partner, a confidant, and truth speaker that will be by their side for life! Help them grow by teaching them to love more, share more, and communicate more from a young age. Their life will be blessed by it and so will yours!!! And while you’re at it don’t just give them one give em a few!

I always say// you’ll never regret the kids you have but you might regret the ones you don’t have!

Party • a n i m a l s

These two crazies [Beckette James & Major Vonn] went to bed promptly at 8pm without a fuss. I shoulda known…

10:20pm rolls along & I come into our room with Beckette sitting up demanding to watch “Beckette shows” & Major is kicking his blankies off in his cradle. I know what you’re thinking. Why is a seven month old in a cradle? Well I don’t really have a good reason other than he just is.

Well to make a short story long, you’d think they’d be sleepy & cranky all day, but no. They’re as bright eyed & bushy tailed as ever…

Gluten Free baby?

I have to start off by admitting something. I thought the whole gluten free way of eating was a bunch of bologna. Like any other diet trend, I figured it would soon be gone & something new would surface.

{insert apology to those offended}

Little did I know that it just might become a very big part of my family’s life. Beckette has had some digestive problems the past few weeks. We kept thinking it was something she ate that day. After doing some research, it looks like she may just have a gluten allergy. Although we don’t know for sure yet since tests are still being ran, we started her on a gluten free diet just in case. I mean it couldn’t hurt any to try right?

We are praying that we find the exact reason soon, but hoping that this new diet might just be the answer.

Anyone else experiencing this?

• s w e e t • babies

All babies are sweet. I know that. However my babies are needing some extra special attention lately. They are both going through big changes in their little bodies & they need me to be extra //sweet// with them & that is just fine with me.

My Major man is typically so easy going & happy all day long. Lately he’s been attached to my hip //or boob// & I’m guessing it’s teething but who knows? It honestly doesn’t really matter anyways because if he wants me to hold him all day, I will. Nothing will become priority over that. No amount of chores or orders will ever come first. E V E R.

As for my main girl, she’s still working through her new fears & is growing more & more aware of things by the day. I’m doing my best to be patient with her when she doesn’t want to go get her water because she’d have to walk under the smoke alarm. Even the Hello Kitty stickers we put on them hasn’t cured the problem.

What do you do to tackle separation anxiety in your littles?
