About Me

My photo
The day I said "I do" I married the love of my life and the United States Navy. Since then we have been enjoying the life that the Navy has offered us. This is the story of my days as a wife, stay at home mom of 3 , dog wrangler, and coordinator of our crazy lives!

Motherhood Hasn't Swallowed Me Whole -- Yet.

Unintentionally, I took a few months off from blogging. Life has been full of moving, getting settled, the holidays and ya know -- raising babies! We successfully made it to Washington, and I dare say, are settled in our house. There is still work to be done, but we've only been here a couple of months and I think we have made great progress! I will try to do some room reveals in the coming weeks. Preston turned 2 in November, we had a lovely Thanksgiving with friends, and celebrated Christmas in our own home for the first time.

Since we have been MIA for a while…here is a massive photo dump of the cuteness my days entail:

Welcome to our new home!!

Addie (front) and Laney (back) at 2 months

This boy LOVES his sisters. Especially Laney. For whatever reason I think they have a special bond.
They even look alike. 
He always hugs her and calls her his "Laney Girl". It kills me.
This is what it looks like to grocery shop with the girls. I wore Laney and strategically placed groceries around a sleeping Addie.
Such a happy baby! Addie smiles all the time.

Lest you think that a certain little boy has been neglected…
Possibly one of my favorite pictures of all time. He gets it honestly!
My sweetness.

He even suckered me into a $7 train ride at the mall while we were Christmas shopping

In other news…we recently transitioned Preston to a toddler bed. I was totally unprepared when I came home from running some errands and found that Ed has taken the rail off. Preston was so proud though. He couldn't contain his excitement! Someone else has found it to be an optimal spot as well...

Preston, of course, thinks its hysterical and always says "Zodey…so silly". Her name is actually Zoey…but he thinks there should be a "D", so whatever.

Overall, I think we are settling into being a family of 5 rather well. We have definitely had some trying moments, but I think that comes with any transition! The girls are growing so fast! Both of them are close to rolling over and I suspect that Laney is cutting a couple of teeth! Addie is definitely the easy going one and Laney is so sassy. I have known it since she was in utero…she is going to be my hand full!
