That Feeling

If you have kids you get “that feeling.” You know the one where you think man I should check on them because they’re a little too quiet in the back room or man I should really move that because that’s an accident waiting to happen. If you aren’t a parent a little advice ALWAYS listen to that feeling. So last weekend we were getting ready to go to my nephews first communion right? Well, a few months back my father-in-law took apart a shelf and set it to the side. The last like week or so I was thinking I should move it because a few of the doors had glass. Well, of course, ten minutes before we needed to be out the door my son was playing with his dump truck and while pushing it he hit the door with his foot and it tipped over and shattered. Keep in mind we had to drive a good half hour to get where we needed to go. So I scooped him up stuck him in the living room put up the baby gate, swept up with the help of my mother-in-law, threw on some stress away and went on my way. Needless to say, if you get that feeling don’t ignore it. Always listen to that feeling because of course, Murphy’s law, it’s gonna happen when you’re getting ready to walk out the door.

A years worth of update.

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 πŸ™‚ we now have two beautiful little ones; one girl, one boy πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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!

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.

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.Β 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.

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 πŸ™‚

One foot in front of the other.Β 

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 πŸ™‚ Β 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.

Work to Home.

Guys I work 12 hour shifts. I come home and hang out with my hubby and my baby boy, as I do every time I work and come home. Tonight I did the same thing, but now I’m just sitting here writing this blog. My husband on his PS4 and I can not tell you how relaxed I am. Usually I get off work come home, hang out and go to bed. Tonight I felt like doing things a bit different. So I’m sitting here writing, looking at my young living things and hanging out with my husband. This is so nice. We don’t usually get a lot of us time, even if were doing our own thing together. Jack is finally starting to get back on Germany time, only took about a month. He’s sleeping much better at night, although with him trying to walk his brain is running all the time so last night he didn’t sleep very well. My poor baby, always awake trying to learn everything. Even though I decided to come home and hang out a bit longer than usual, I’m still tired. Again, I can’t even begin to explain how nice it is and be able to do something adult like instead of going to straight to bed. I’m sure all parents know the feeling πŸ™‚
