Spider-man Halloween

Time has been flying by… I’ll be 32 weeks on Wednesday and we aren’t ready at all. We have been so busy with doctors appointments, work, and all the other little projects we have going on we haven’t gotten much done around the house. When I was pregnant with Jace we had everything planned. This time it feels like everything is up in the air. We STILL haven’t decided on a name. We seem to be stuck between two that we[Read more]

3 Hour Glucose Test

Yesterday I had to take the 3 hour glucose test. I read before hand that some women get sick but didn’t think too much of it. Patrick decided to come with me. I think I made him nervous by telling him about how people had trouble keeping it down. Well it was a good thing he took off work and came.  About 30 minutes after drinking the horrible fruit punch flavored drink and my first blood draw I started to[Read more]

The Big News

I’ve been meaning to post this all week but I’ve been having problems logging into my blog. On Jace’s birthday, way back on April 30th we found out that Jace was going to be a BIG BROTHER! We wanted to announce the big news sooner but wanted to tell our family first. We will be posting an announcement on Saturday so if you are friends with me on Facebook please wait to post anything. So that is the reason that[Read more]

What Goes Around Comes Around…

After we lost Hershey last week we tried our best to have a fun weekend. We didn’t want to be stuck in the house with his medicines all over the counters, collar and leashes hanging by the door, or his empty kennel sitting in the corner by the back door. I’m still slowly picking up his things and putting them away but my eyes go often to that empty corner. We took Jace to Schlitterbahn for a few hours Friday[Read more]

Letter To My Son On His 2nd Birthday

I’ve been wanting to write this for a few days now but we have been so busy. It is a few days past your birthday but I wanted to share it anyway. Plus we are still singing you happy birthday every day since you enjoy it so much! Jace I can not believe how fast these two years have gone by! I hope one day you can read this and understand for yourself what it means. You are truly amazing[Read more]

How Did Two Years Go By So Fast?

Jace turns two this Thursday. Saturday we had a birthday party for him at the park. He had a lot of fun. I stayed up late Friday making a minion birthday cake for him. At first I had planned on making a Lego cake but we changed it at the last minute. Jace saw a minion piñata at Target and freaked out so we decided to change his theme. Unfortunately the cake did not survive the 1.5 hour trip so[Read more]

5k Fun

Nothing too exciting has been going on. Yesterday Patrick and I did a 5k. The first mile was easier than I thought it was going to be. Unfortunately around the 2 mile marker Jace decided that he didn’t want to be in the stroller anymore so we took turns carrying him. It was pretty slow but somehow Patrick ended up getting 5th in his division and I ended up getting 3rd in mine. After we all came home and took[Read more]


I’ve never really made any New Year resolutions before, mostly because I’ve always thought there were kind of stupid. Why wait until the next year to start what you know you need to do? But there are some things that I really want to start doing more over the next year and maybe if I write them down on here I’ll be more motivated to do more of them.  I’m I going to start first thing tomorrow morning? Heck no,[Read more]

Peter Pan Halloween

Last Friday was Jace’s second Halloween.  We decided to dress up as a family and thought it wouldn’t be that hard to make most of the costumes.  Jace was Peter Pan and his was the easiest to make. I would tell anyone to just make their own Peter Pan costume. I took an oversized plain green shirt that I bought from Goodwill and cut it. I looked up several examples of how to make a simple hat and it was[Read more]

Pushing Boundaries

Jace can no longer be contained anywhere…not in his pack n play, or any other baby safe places that we set up around the house. Turn away for a second and he is laying on the back of the couch laughing about to land on the other side while mommy rushes to grab a leg or an arm before it disappears on the other side. And he thinks it’s hilarious. Of course, he hasn’t actually landed on the other side[Read more]
