Though most of this blog contains pictures, it's also a detailed account of my life living with three boys. And yes, they are all boys. Hope you enjoy... they're pretty cute (but often smell).

First Blood

It was all fun and games in the bath until Huddy dove for Cole - who was holding a cup - and first brotherly blood was drawn.
Jason immediately said to "write it down. It was the first but definitely not the last".

NSFW Coleisms

At school today, cole apparently held up toilet paper by his butt after going potty. When asked what he was doing, he said: Look! I have a white tail!

Going potty next to J: dad, why is your penis so much bigger than mine?

Whole 30

Here we go! Jason and I are doing the Whole 30. We started on 2/23 and will hopefully make it the entire time. I may post more photos, tips and tricks on here as having a "support system" is the #1 motivator.
Stay tuned...

Hockey Fights

Cole and his hockey buddy, Braden, sure like to cause a ruckus at skating class. Lots of teasing and pushing. Gloves haven't come off yet but we were close!

Take me to Work

Wondering what I do all day? Here's a great example: meeting (I'm in them 80% of my day), laptops, client on the phone, ice cream (that might not be an everyday thing) and talking through a mix of fun stuff and numbers.
This is my 8-5 :)

Hi sicky!

Once again, this smiley little man had an ear infection. And J is once again traveling. And I'm, again, not sleeping.

Hudson: 9 month update

  Poor Hudson. I’ve been slacking on the monthly updates.

Hudson, if you’re reading this and judging me for not being as prompt as I was with your brother. I’m sorry. But to be fair, you don’t sleep as well so I’m tired.

With that said, here’s Huddy’s 9 month update:
  • 31” tall, 25 lbs – all way over the 100% mark
  • Wearing size 5 diapers (can you get any bigger?) and 24 month clothes
  • Still a happy little baby but definitely getting more personality - we’ve decided that he is going to be much more trouble than Cole
  • He loves to giggle at you when you tell him “no” and has these wicked full body tantrums
  • Get better at sleeping… but I’m knowing on wood big time
  • Eats four meals a day and about four 8 ounce bottles
  • Not interested in real food at all. Sometimes he’ll take a few bites, as long as you’re physically putting it in his mouth
  • Takes one nap a day (during the week) for around 1 hour
  • Still rocking the army crawl but can get back to sitting and sometimes standing
  • No interest in walking – he’ll literally go limp when you try and get him to
  • LOVES his big brother – wants to play with him/on him any chance he can get
  • Is spoiled rotten – wines when you put him down
  • Loves to pull hair, necklaces, anything you don’t want him to… and then laughs in your face when you tell him “no”
  • Has me wrapped around his finger – he’s still a huge cuddler and, much like a puppy, wants to be in your lap if you’re anywhere near him

Dear Hudson

Dear my sweet baby boy,
PLEASE sleep. You used to do it so well and now you're up almost every night. I love your sweet cuddles but not at 3:30am. And I'm glad your finding your voice, but not at 4:00am. And I know you're growing, but do you really need another bottle at 4:40am?
Please sweet baby. I'm begging you. Your dad and I are going insane from sleep deprivation. Please, please, please sleep!!!!
Your 5-shot-latte mamma
