More sleep for me!

So I know what you’re gonna say, another oil post?! I know. I know. But let me tell you guys how happy I am right now. Jack has been sleeping so much better. We got this new oil called cedarwood and we put it in the diffuser in his room with lavender….He woke up once. Once! And he didn’t even wake up until like 10-11 the next morning. I slept so good! Plus we had a pretty happy well rested baby the following day. Happy baby = Happy mom and dad.

Winter and sickness

So it’s winter which means it’s also cold and flu season along with everything else. So of course the one time we take Jack out shopping with us he develops the start of a cold the following two days. He was having trouble sleeping too because he was having a hard time breathing with his stuffy, runny nose. So since I have an oil diffuser I thought well we could put some lavender in it because that’s suppose to help you sleep, right? Well, I was thinking maybe I could throw in some thieves, too, because it’s suppose to help boost your immune system. When you have a sick baby you’ll do just about anything to help them. So I tried it for about 3 nights or so and my baby was back to his happy, running around, causing chaos little self. Not only that but he did sleep better than usual. Now, I know not everyone believes in the whole essential oils thing but I was super relieved my baby felt better.

Growling and more :)

So my husband thought it would be cute if he taught Jack how to growl and now he does it all the time.ย It is the cutest thing. He does it a lot when he is a happy boy. He’ll wake up from a nap and sometimes the only way we know he’s awake is because he’s talking and growling haha. When he’s playing with his stuffed bear he’ll do it then too. He’s walking with a lot more confidence. Now he’s learning how to stand up by himself, he’s done it a few times so far. It is amazing how quick he picks up on everything. I love watching him learn his own boundaries knowing what he can and cannot do. It’s like one big fun adventure with him.

All the excitement

So with all this excitement going on around me. I’ve been super busy. Although I have recently gotten into the Gilmore Girls TV series and I love it. So during my me time I sit down and watch it. Of course after I play with my baby and continue learning more about Young Living. I must say I feel like I’m going nonstop sometimes but it’s nice to be busy and it makes you enjoy your downtime a lot more than you usually would. I know I have said it a million times but Jackson is growing so fast its hard to believe he will be one year old the 4th of February. My little man. I love him so much. On a side note my husband has found something he loves to do that he hadn’t done in a while; writing. He is currently working on a book. I love watching him type away and how much he enjoys it as much as I enjoy what I do. I love my little family. That’s all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally!

Super excited! I can barely contain myself. I finally after almost a month and a half got my oils kit back. I was super excited to be able to diffuse oils again. Now remember I have an 11 month old who is in diapers. I swear the smell of them linger! I just put some purification, with a touch of lemon and orange, in that bad boy and all lingering smells of diapers were gone! I mean gone, I could no longer smell it. Any parent knows the feeling of lingering diaper smells…gross. Super happy Momma over here guys! Thank you for dealing with my excitement about the little things in life ๐Ÿ™‚

Mommy Breakdown

This isn’t the first and definitely won’t be the last. In one month my baby boy will be a year. One year. One freaking year. I don’t know how it has gone by so fast. I was in bed the other night and I found myself thinking about everything and how he’s learning new things. He’s growing so fast. All of a sudden I’m crying and I walk down stairs to my husband and just sit in his lap and cry. He asked me what was wrong and all I said was he’s growing up to fast. I guess we’r always told it goes by fast but you never really know how fast until you have one of your own. It’s like everything else I guess, it feels like it takes forever to get to that point but when you get there it feels like yesterday you were just finding out about it. Kids are a blessing and even though I may dread it sometimes I love watching Jackson grow.

 

One foot in front of the other.ย 

Hey guys! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am right now, but scared at the same time. My baby boy can walk! I mean he can walk guys! As long as he is already standing up he walks so well. We’re getting him use to walking with shoes too. I’m so proud of him, he’ll fall down every so often but he’s getting the hang of it. He still has to learn stand up with no help but I’m in no rush for him to grow up any faster ๐Ÿ™‚ ย The other night we were getting him ready for a bath and he was standing against the door. All of a sudden my husband said babe grab him. I looked over and the little man was walking out of the bathroom toward the stairs! I don’t think I’ve ever dropped something and ran so fast in my life. He was laughing and I’m thinking in my head that could’ve been very bad. We learned very quick all doors are shut when he’s in the room. I can’t believe he’s growing up so fast though. I’m learning to enjoy every little moment there is with him.
