Winslow is 18 months!

20 February 2015

This year has been hard on us so far. I feel like we have not been healthy, and we've been traveling a lot.   In January, we went to Texas and this month we drove to North Carolina.  They were both great trips, but it seems like sickness follows us home.  Also, I've been pretty sick and so this little place has not been on my mind much.  Sorry friends and family who are looking for an update. I guess I've taken a small break not really meaning to.  But I hope to get back to posting at least once a week here pretty soon.

Sometimes it's just good to unplug.  Yes, I thought about posting here and there, but I never had the desire to just sit down and write this month.  Lots of stuff going on here..I may share about it later.  Who knows.

Our little man is EIGHTEEN MONTHS OLD.  HOW did that happen?  HOW?  I am seriously flabbergasted that he is 1.5 years old. 

- He is SUCH a curious and mischevious little boy. He loves climbing on furniture, the coffee table, can get on the couch with ease, loves to sit on the counter and watch me cook or clean, and knows how to scoot off our bed backwards so his feet hit the floor first. Such a smart boy.  ;)
-His favorite toys right now are his race track with cars, books (He LOVES to read), his vaccuum cleaner, shopping cart, and his bubble mower. Basically, anything he can push around the house he loves.
-He wears a size 6 shoe but I think we are moving up to a 7 real soon.  He is in 18-24 month clothes.
-His favorite words are :Darla, momma, dada, banana, night night, bye bye, hey, uh oh, and MMMMM.
 -He knows what sound a goat,dog,cat, and snake makes.
-He loves poking anyone's bellybutton and squealing.
-Naps one time a day from 1:30-3:30.  I usually just rock him a minute and then lay him in his crib and he will cozy up to his blanket and fall asleep.
-Wakes up around 7:30-8am and goes to bed around 8pm.  It used to be 7:30 but we've been pretty lax about that because he loves bathtime so we let him play a little longer.
-Favorite foods:  strawberries, bananas, blueberries, white beans (A new favorite), broccolli dipped in ketchup, grilled cheeses, chick fil a nuggets, yogurt, teddy grahams, mac and cheese, green smoothies.
-Does NOT like: most beans, most veggies, avacado, tomatoes
-Loves being outside and playing at the park.  He will run around and just talk to himself the whole time.  He loves sliding down the slide by himself and seeing other babies.  He will say "ba ba" when he sees a baby.
- Still using the same cloth diapers we've had since he was born.  We found out he has very sensative skin, so we don't use disposables at all.  He kept having reactions to them.  He's also allergic to wool and any scented body washes.
 -Still loves being worn in the Tula or ring sling. I am so thankful.  He loves being close.
-Can blow his nose when you hand him a kleenex and loves smelling flowers.
-Loves being naked and will run around the house like that most evenings.

Texas Part 1

30 January 2015

We spent 12 days in Texas.  Away from hubby.  That part was hard, but we managed.  I think he ate cereal and pizza the whole time. And played a lot of video games with his boys. ;) 

He missed us for sure.  And little man came back with a big haircut so he looked so old! 

Here's a recap of our first half in Texas. We spent most days on my dad's farm and a few days with my grandparents. 

 Winslow's favorite thing to do was go see the goats.  The first thing he would do when he woke up is say "BAAAAAA" and point outside.  Cutest. thing.ever.
 Had to clip some chicken wangs so they wouldn't fly off.
 His next favorite thing was to ride the tractor. He loved it. 

 We had dinner with my grandmother. She will turn 90 this year!

 Doesn't she look beautiful?  and not 89 years old!?
 Those baby curls. I love them.  But  I am glad we got his haircut. 

Separate post for that big event coming!

 Four generations

And our good old cousin bobby. 

More photos to come!

Sick sick sick

26 January 2015

Well...we are back from Texas and although it was wonderful and great and loads of fun, we are both SICK.  Winslow got a bad head cold/ cough/congestion last week and it's still holding on. 

A few days later, it's hit me hard. I feel like I am underwater most of the day, and I've coughed so much my chest feels like it could explode.  I don't sleep a wink at night due to coughing, and I have gone through 2 boxes of Kleenex since we've been home. 

I promise to update you on our Texas adventures, and I have another post about Stitch Fix too! But first, I am focusing my time and energy on getting our household WELL.  *And praying that daddy doesn't get sick*

Just thought I'd stop in to let you know that I have not fallen off the earth.  While in Texas, my dad has bad internet service so I couldn't update there and W was too busy playing with the goats anyway. ;)

More coming soon..I promise!
