My BFF gets home from her mission on FRIDAY!

I'm so excited. I've missed her SOO much. I would've loved to have had her around this last year from hell, but, alas, the Lord had other plans for her... like serving in Korea!

Watch out for lots of duck face selfies comin' your way via Instagram startng FRIDAYYYY!

March goals!!

Obviously the first week of March has already come and gone, which is insane, but I'm making some goals for March anyway.

First, update on my February goals. We cloth diaper (almost) full time now! It took some tweaking and learning and a lot of leaks, not to mention a ton of laundry, but I feel like it's an A+! Plus I'm getting something like 15 more diapers at the end of this month, so that'll mean less laundry haha.

And my diabetes is WAY better. :) I used all 100 strips this month! Go me!

So, March. I want to keep up with the diabetes. I want to start a budget. And stick to it. And I want to work out. I want to sweat every day. And I want to start being on my phone less!

Now it's out in the open. Phew. Wish me luck.

{11 months}

my small baby is neither small nor a baby.

[jack posing with the 200+ blankets we've collected for the nicu. read about it here!]
jack is now 11 months actual age, 8.5 months adjusted age.

he weighs 19 lb 3 oz and is ~29" tall.

he is a fast crawler, cruises the furniture, and is almost ready to start standing, but gets scared and sits down quickly lol.

he's a curious little boy, always after something. especially his parents. there is no peace or quiet.

he just got his 5th tooth.

he says dada, but we're not saying it counts as a word because he doesn't look at carter and say it. and i swear i've heard him say mama, but same thing.

he eats everything we do. we've cut back formula from 30 oz a day to 16 oz a day. he gets a bottle at breakfast, afternoon, and bedtime. for breakfast he usually eats a muffin and fruit or a whole package of quaker oatmeal. lunch is a sandwich of some sort (grilled cheese, peanut butter and jelly, tuna) and a veggie (carrots with hummus are a fave), although today we had taquitos and he loved them. dinner is whatever we're eating - his faves are mashed potatoes, spaghetti, and rice.

[first time on the swings! he loved it!]
we've been cloth diapering for a month, and we're finally good at it! we do it full time now! :) the only time he'll wear disposables are probably in the car when we're traveling because that's just easier.

he loves the wiggles and elmo.

he can be bribed to give kisses too. and blows raspberries on us in the shower.

[kissin' his GF, lux]

speaking of, he LOVES water. baths, shower, swimming, drinking.

[carter texted me this when i was with the young women one night. so so sweet.]
