This life

How did I ever get so lucky to live this life with such a special boy in it. I love these photos Greentee Photography took of us because it really shows how cuddly Hendrix is. I mean, don’t get me wrong he does have his crazy monkey moments and times where he doesn’t listen at all. But deep down he is so tender and loving, and it has been so fun to watch it come out.
If I ever hurt myself he comes up and says “sorry mommy!” and give me a kiss. If he sees a baby crying he will bring them a toy and give them a soother. It makes me so happy to call him my little boy.

Happy 2nd Birthday!

Our sweet little boy turned 2! How did that happen? The day before his birthday we had a little birthday party for him with our families. We made brunch, opened presents and had cupcakes.

Hendrix, you are the light of my life and I can’t imagine my life without you in it. Thank you for making me a mommy.

Baby #2

IMG_9377 copy

Hello loves! I am so excited and happy to announce we are having another baby in the beginning of October! I’m sorry I have been so non-existent lately but to be honest I have not been feeling good at all. Any spare time I have I’m either napping or trying not to puke🙂 Now that I’m almost 15 weeks I’m starting to feel better so hopefully I will be back more often!

Here is a 11.5 week ultrasound photo of our new little baby that we are so excited to meet.11.4 weeks

New Shelves

I have been slowly decorating my house since we moved in. The walls around the table have felt very plain so we hung up some shelves that I can decorate. It will be so fun to decorate them according to the season, right now they have some Christmas decor on it but that will be changing VERY quickly!

The brackets we used where these from Ikea and are only $2.00. For the wood I went to home depot and got a 2×10 board and I stained it with the same stain I used for our table.

Cutest little helmet

First of all, thank you to everyone who entered the LitLettering personalized stamp giveaway! The lucky lady who won already had her stamp designed and it should be in the mail any day now.

Anyways, our little man is obsessed with anything hockey related. He has a hockey book and points at the skates then at his feet, points at their helmets and then points to his head. My sister-in-law gave Hendrix a hockey helmet for him to wear and it has not come off since. From the moment he wakes up until the moment he goes down for a nap his helmet is on his head.

Naturally Steve wants him to learn how to skate and he knew Hendrix would have a blast. So he took him out skating one night while I was out with friends, and I so badly wanted photos. Apparently Hendrix was slipping around so much Steve needed both hands on him at all times. So we decided to take him again (yay for free under 2!) and he did so good.

Personalized Stamp + Giveaway!

One of my friends has a beautiful etsy shop full of her handwritten work. She makes everything personalized including invitations, wall prints, and stamps. She created a name address stamp for me that I adore! These stamps make perfect christmas presents, birthday presents and house warming presents. Here is what Tara has to say about Lit Lettering :

I love type! I always have, I remember as a small child getting a personalized letterhead and envelope set and thinking it was the greatest gift -ever!. As for the info about Lit Lettering, really I am a full-time mom that loves type so much that as soon as my littles are asleep – I am with ink.  I do various mediums like modern calligraphy, brush script and digital type (transferring work to computer). In my etsy shop you will see items like custom address stamps, business logos, invitations and wall quotes. Although I am always up for a creating something custom and special, you want custom wedding invites or a designed mailbox with your last name, calligraphy christmas balls, really you name it . As for the wall quotes, these are 100% done by hand – so when people received them they are ink on cardstock that I did a couple of days ago.
All my work starts on paper, and that is really the part I love so much. Doodles turn into ideas and font characters can change.  If you want something created using type, I am your girl.

Happy Halloween

Before we took Hendrix and the triplets out to trick-or-treat we wanted to get some photos of their outfits. The three little piggies and the big bad wolf! I bought little boots for Hendrix that where all fur and could have been perfect for his outfit, but I didn’t try them on him until Halloween and they where to small. Dang. When we first put on Hendrix’ costume he hated it and wanted it off immediately, and all three of the babies where crying and grumpy. We thought there was no way we would get a photo. But then we took them outside and all four where surprisingly happy.
