Babywise Guest Blog

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Newsflash: I'm still alive!!!! On Tuesday I planned to spend my whole evening blogging. Get some posts ready for when we left Friday for Toronto on an Aflac trip. Well...obviously that didn't happen. Instead my lovely modem died on me and good old ATT "overnighted" me a new one but to them "overnighting" means two day air so I didn't actually get the modem before we left for the trip. ~Hopefully~ it'll be waiting for us on our doorstep when we get home...we shall see!!! I found this entry from back in July. I wrote this as a guest blog for the Babywise Blog . Valerie had a Babywise Success Story week and I wanted to share my own Babywise Story and how valuable I think all the -wise books are. Since writing it I have given birth to Brittlynn...and I even moreso am thankful for Babywise! Right now the kids are staying with my mom while we are gone. It's my first time leaving Britt and Mom's first time keeping both kids. As a testament to ho

Pre-Wedding Girl Time!

Monday, April 23, 2012

The wedding fun officially started on Thursday March 29th! As you all know I'm pretty hardcore about the picture taking but when a bunch of people are taking pictures I kinda shy away a bit. So instead of taking a ton myself I just asked all the other picture takers if I could steal their pictures once they posted on Facebook. So in advance I wanna say a big thank you to Melody, Jenna, Bethany and Brittany as many of the pictures you'll see in these posts have come from them. People also took a ton of pictures with Casey's camera. But she's a newlywed so she hasn't gotten around to posting those pictures yet. Once she does I may be either updating these posts with those pictures or just making some new entries to go along with the new pics ;) We'll see!!! Thursday afternoon we all met up at Nails By Chris (The BEST place in town. Like even my Atlanta friends would be mega impressed with this place!!!). I was the first one there and they all kept thinking I w

Easter Party at School

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Kye's school Easter party fell on a really crazy week. The day prior we had his pre-op in Tifton for his surgery and that Friday we left for Casey and Jordan's wedding. Since Mrs. Charlotte had already come t my house to watch Britt for Kye's appointment and she had a mega stressful week with the wedding...I did NOT want to ask her to watch Britt again for the party. But, at the same time, I didn't want to miss the party either. I know how much Kye loves having me visit school and how disappointed he'd be if I wasn't there when other parents would be. The party started at 10 which is right in the middle of Britt's nap. Luckily, Zach ended up being able to drive Kye to school that morning so I could focus on hardcore playing with Britt and putting her down early. I knew she wouldn't fall back to sleep in the car seat (duh) and that it'd be too crazy once we got to school for her to sleep so I just didn't stress over it. One nap won't kil

Life with Two

Friday, April 20, 2012

For as long as I can remember I've always planned on having lots of babies. This was a "deal breaker" for me in a relationship back when I was hunting for a man and, thankfully, Zach and I are on the same page on this! Whenever we tell people that we want a large family the typical response has always been "I did too until I had my second one." I never understood why people decided to stop after two. Or why the "perfect American family" is always considered to be a family of four. If people wanted more than two kids why would they not have them?!?!  Now I get it. When I got pregnant with Brittlynn a common thing people would tell me (which WHY people feel the need to say negative stuff to a pregnant girl I don't really get?!?! I mean I'm already pregnant haha) was that the transition from 1 to 2 kids was waaaaay harder than the transition from 0 to 1. Now that my #2 baby is 4 months old I feel like I can confidently write on this topi

Stevie's Angry Birds Party!

Thursday, April 19, 2012

On Sunday March 25th we attended Stevie's 4th birthday party! Have I mentioned I love a Sunday afternoon party??? I myself could never host one (waaaay too stressful with church that morning) but I love being invited to them. Sunday afternoons are always downtime so it's a nice, fun thing to get to do! Kye was PUMPED for Stevie's party and I was excited to see what cute things Seth and Crissy  would come up with. Stevie is ALL about that game Angry Birds. I know nothing about it. I downloaded it on my tablet and played it once. I am just NOT into games. I feel like they have no point. You play them and that's it. I'd much rather spend my time blogging or facebooking as it's interacting with people and storing memories. Zach is into playing games on his Ipad and phone and such, but it's just not my thing! While I may not know anything about the game, I knew enough to see that they did an AWESOME job with the party theme! Aren't
