Patrick: 3 Months

  • Getting a little happier but still on the colic train just a wee bit
  • Loves to be held; he will take a long nap if we are holding him and a 5 minute nap if  we put him down
  • Still is gassy all the time it seems, which is his main point of frustration. Even though I am still off dairy, eggs, soda (mostly) and chocolate
  • He loves to be talked to and  looked at, and especially sung to
  • big smiles all the time now
  • Hates and I repeat HATES his car seat
  • great head control
  • loves to 'stand up'
  • He is not really on any type of schedule, but he naps every few hours and sleeps in about 2-3 hour stretches at night
  • Still loves to be swaddled and bounced on the exercise ball
  • Just barely in 3-6 month clothes now
  • Talks, babbles and yells constantly
  • Good eater, working on spacing out his feeding though because boyfriend seems to want to eat constantly
  • Sensitive skin with eczema patches (just like me and Everett)
  • Loves to suck and drool on his hands
Patrick at three months is getting easier. The crying spells are shorter and the happy times are longer. He is getting so much more alert and aware and lights up when you give him that one on one face time. I feel like we are coming out of the newborn haze and we can't imagine life without him. Life with two kids is still a transition for me and I feel like I'm running behind on most things. The biggest differences between first child and second child is Patrick gets bathed way less (we bathed Everett every single night when he was this age) and Patrick always wears comfy sleepers while I was putting Everett in full on skinny jeans and sweaters at this age. Everett goes through phases with him, but for the most part is really gentle and understanding of him-last week in the same day he told me he wished Patrick would go back in my tummy and that he loved him to the moon and back so...

We sure love our round faced little cherub.

Well I thought it was Friday on Tuesday of this week so this weekend couldn't come soon enough. We have absolutely zero plans for this weekend which I'm not even mad about, when it snows like it did today my desire to leave the house drops dramatically.  I finally figured out how to make my moms kettle corn without burning it, and we need to finish watching all the Oscar nominated movies for this year...Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

++Speaking of the Oscars, did you see all the nominations. I mean, I really really want Leo to get his Oscar, even though I don't think I will enjoy The Revenant. But there has been so much made about him NOT getting as Oscar, that I hope he doesn't feel like this is a pity win because he's been snubbed so much before. If I was him I would be like 'guys, internet, stop making this a thing, you're making it weird'.

++My favorite movies of this award season have been in no particular order-Joy, The Big Short (loved this one), The Martian, Spotlight, Inside Out, Brooklyn, Everest and The Intern (I know, so far from being nominated from anything, but it was so stinking adorable) I still want to see Room, Bridge of Spies and Ex Machina. I also have not seen, nor have any desire to see Star Wars (que angry mob with lightsabers) (also for my whole life I thought they were called lightSAVERS, I know it doesn't make much sense) (end of bracket sentences)

++Guys, this week I got a little internship at one of my favorite bloggers, The House that Lars Built. I am so excited! It is just a few hours a week and I think it will be perfect for me to get out of the house, have a creative outlet and to be a part of something I admire so much.

++Did you see the picture my brother drew for me of Everett on my instagram, it is such a treasure. One of the things I would go back into a fire for. He is so talented. Based off this picture.

++ I was shocked by this post I saw on A Cup of Jo this morning, because I sadly do pretty much all those things.

++This Adele and James Corden video is blowing up the internet, I want to be friends with them.

++Can you tell I live for award shows. We're talking I start watching coverage at like one in the afternoon. My favorite dresses from last weekend's golden globes were Eva Longoria, Rachel Mcadams and Alicia Vikander. And you know what? Everyone loved Jennifer Lopez's dress but for some reason I'm not a fan. Also this was my favorite part part of the show obvi

++ If I had won that powerball, I would have bought this entire new Madewell collection. So dreamy! In the meantime I got this coat, normally $168 for $28 this week,!!! So on point with the Pantone color of the year! 

Happy Weekending errbody! Ps-I have so many thoughts about The Bachelor, but I think that is a post of its own.

January Blues!

January is the worst. It is like the hard crash after the sugar high that is November and December and I have got the January blues for sure! It's only redeeming quality (besides Ben the Bachelor) is that it is a new and fresh start! I wasn't going to do resolutions this year because when I looked back at the goals I made last January here, I didn't even remember setting some of them, let alone accomplishing them (I wanted to collect plates apparently ?!) I am thinking though, that setting some attainable goals will motivate me and maybe get my butt out of this January funk.

Also sideline here-I am not putting any body goals on my list because they stress me out, I just (ish) had a baby and I just bought a new pair of jeans I really like, and how tragic would it be if they were too big before I had the chance to get my wears out of them (how's that one for excuses?)


  • Go on dates with Ben once a week-I mean really
  • Find an out-of-home creative outlet-or at least just go to a Starbucks and look like I'm doing something creative-Ok basically just find time to get out of the house by myself
  • Read 10 books
  • Wash my face (pretty much) every night-I am the worst at this 
  • Spend one on one time with each of the boys at least once a week
  • Work on being less of a hypochondriac
  • Tidy up the house for 20 minutes after the kids go to bed because it is an instant downer coming downstairs to a mess in the morning
  • Make some friends in Provo(pathetic but true, all mine have moved away and I am so bad at making new ones)
Those are do-able right?
