3 Things (January)

I have seen several bloggers write these posts and thought It would be fun to do!

one | this is his slow season right now with work. He has been home a lot lately and while I can tell its about to drive him nuts, I am really loving it! It's nice to have an extra set of hands around. I know come a few weeks from now he will be back to leaving at 7 and not getting home until late afternoon.

two | Speaking of work..He just told me that he opened his business 14 years ago yesterday. What a huge accomplishment! He's gone from a one man show to having two crews and an awesome new shop! I couldn't be prouder of him.

three | He has been such a huge help with potty training. I couldn't have done it without him! Just proves what an excellent husband and daddy he is.

one | The theme of his life right now is potty training! We have been working on it for a few weeks now and while accidents happen he is really doing well. I'm so proud of him!

two | He is into all things Paw Patrol! He watches it constantly and if he's not watching it he's playing with all of his pups and their cars. Our playroom looks like Paw Patrol threw up!

three | He adores his baby brother! They have finally reached a stage where they can play together. I love peek in on them and seeing them interact. He definitely has taken on the roll of "big brother" and teaching him things like..jumping off of his PB anywhere chair.

one | Graham has become a toddler. He is so much fun and really loves to play with toys! I love to catch him trying to zoom a car or a truck around. He loves the play kitchen and also loves to dump all the toys out of the bins!

two | He is starting to talk more and more. He has definite words that he says clearly now and I love hearing his voice come out. I can't wait to hear him speak full sentences!

three | He is a great sleeper! He still takes two naps a day. Morning is usually 1-1.5 hours and afternoon 2-3 hours and then goes to bed at 6:30! He rarely makes a peep during the night and I can count on one hand how many times I've had to go in there since he started sleeping through the night over the summer. (I am sure I just cursed myself and he will be up every hour on the hour tonight!)

one | I am taking Jack to Disney with my Mom, sisters and their kids in March. Some how I got picked to plan the whole trip. So I have been busy trying to figure out all things related to Disney! Which, if you've never planned a trip to disney, it's nothing like I remember. Thanks to Erkia who has planned most of the trip for us or else I would be totally lost and we would not be going!

two |  I am on an organization kick. I am trying to purge, purge, purge. Including baby clothes! I have two local gals that have baby boys that will match up with my boys size wise. The other day I laid out all the boys old clothes for the girls to come shopping. It gave me all the feels as I pulled each thing out and remembered them wearing them!

three | I have been trying to focus on growing my blog and the content. Man is it hard! I want to gain genuine followers and stay true to myself so it's definitely taking time. But I love connecting with some many sweet girls and have formed genuine friendships!

As you can see our life is pretty uneventful right now! Which is fine by me. I am loving the season that we are in and watching my boys grow and change daily is such fun! I may get frustrated on the regular with Jack peeing in his pants and Graham refusing to walk but I love each and every moment I get to spend with them! Patrick and I will celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary this weekend and have a fun trip planned! I can't wait to share all about our Wedding day as well as our trip!

  1. Disney is going to be so much fun! When we plan a trip I'll be asking for tips. Isn't it fun to see your kids interact and play together? One of my favorite things!

  2. Happy Early Anniversary! Can't wait to hear about your trip! And props to your husband for starting his own business from scratch! That's awesome!
