Hey guys! I’m back. Yeah, I know. I’ve been MIA for a while but now I’m pretty sure I’m here to stay. Just to kinda give a quick overview of what has happened over the past year or so; last I told you I was stationed with my husband and son in Germany for the military. Since then I have gotten out, we are back in the United States. My husband and I have switched roles. He now works and I’m lucky enough to stay home with the kids. Yes, I said kids 🙂 we now have two beautiful little ones; one girl, one boy 🙂 Jack is now 2 and Rilynn is 4 months. We are so lucky to be the parents of two amazing kids. That doesn’t mean Jack isn’t going through your typical two year old phases though. Since I got out I’m diving more into my Young Living business; being more active and serious about it. Any encouragement is welcome 🙂 I’m definitely excited to be back and writing to you guys! I’ll be doing some much needed updates for this blog site so thanks for sticking with me guys!
I’m super excited today guys. So I finally did it, I finally signed up for my second college class. I have been graduated for three years. Yes, I know that’s not long but it is at the same time. I have been dreading trying to figure out how to work, go to school, and spend enough time with my family. I feel like I’m going to be a busy bee. I know I’ll survive but I always want to make sure I spend enough time with my son and husband. Time management will start to become a big part of my life the next few months. The class I signed up for though shouldn’t be too hard I signed up for Spanish. It may not be hard but I have a feeling it is going to be very time consuming. I gotta have my baby cuddles and hubby time!
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.
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.
So my husband thought it would be cute if he taught Jack how to growl and now he does it all the time. 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.
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. 🙂
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 🙂
