Adults only

The best thing about a baby not nursing is the freedom you gain. We've took advantage of our freedom and awesome babysitters to spend 3 days away for a friend's wedding. Stacey and I roadtripped it with Keisha and old school Mariah. We thoroughly annoyed John and David with our inability to sing quietly. It was awesome for a 10hour drive.
Church at Gonzaga University
Stacey and I had a particularly fun Saturday night... :)

Baby J turns 1!

I love that when I look at my little man, I think I can see what he'll look like as a grown man. Any other mom's of boys think that? The ballons were his favorite thing. He squealed with delight at Party Depot watching them blow up the masses of Saturday birthday balloons.
We were scheduled to have an outdoor party, but the weather turned wet. So, we went to Out of this World Pizza. It's the hot spot for kids in our neighborhood. Pinkie and all her friends loved it. Baby J just got passed around to people, sneaking their cake and soda.
"I'm ONE!" I love having a baby boy. He adores me, I him and that's just a dream come true.

Eggsellent Easter

{easter egg sorting and resorting and resorting}
Easter was divine! We celebrated at our house with the discovering of baskets, the hunt and then church. After, we drove to my parent's house and had a grand hunt and dinner. Pinkie found the most money eggs and I got a $4 lottery ticket. Big winner baby! {awkward picture- only one taken}
My grandma and seester are quite known for their party planning passions. Everything was adorably decorated and placed to perfection. This is so out of my realm of creativity.
I've been wanting to make Pinkie a real dress. Not like a repurpose or refashion or throw together. But, like, a real dress with a pattern and precise-ness. I convinced {read: bribed} her to wear it by letting her pick out the fabric and buttons (which are glitter hot pink) and a whole lot of gum. I found the pattern and tutorial on The Cottage Home.
{only picture I have... sad}
The dress looking amazing! When they say press and remeasure and iron seams down and clip corners, they really mean it. It changes the whole quality of the dress! Love Love Love!
{beautiful eggs}
We dyed 36!
Coming soon! Baby J turns ONE!!!

I've lost a preschooler...

{snowing in March}
I'm pretty crappy at the blog lately... or actually for 11 months, when Baby J arrived. Two kids so dramatically changes life that it smacks you in the face. Like life is saying, "ha, you thought you could handle it... well take this!" I'm rolling with it, but non-essentails defintely go by the way side.
{are you kidding me? the cuteness is overwhelming}
One great thing about this new, fast paced, full time working mom life is that I've lost 60 pounds. I credit Weight Watchers and never sitting down. I'm loving it though. I get a whole new wardrobe that's just been hiding in my closet since Pinkie was born. And I look at my legs and don't recognize them. I never thought I'd be struggling with my weight. Ugh.
One month til he turns ONE! Are you as happy {sad} as me?
