Oh hey! I know I never post anymore, but Monday I...
That last day in October
I saw this post and laughed, cause it’s just the truth. We celebrate with a carnival, instead of going out with neighbors, because ” we don’t celebrate it” , but really we do! We all have our own convictions and I’m sure I would be shunned by some people, but…. I took my kids trick or treating and it was fun. Though we did go to a church carnival on Friday, not our church, another church that...
Owen turned 4 on the 21st and he’s grown taller and smarter and sweeter since then, I swear it! I like you year 4. We asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday and he said “Camping!! So we got a spot pretty local, took off as soon as Ryan was off work on Friday and a perfect weekend with just the four of us. He woke up to a tent full of balloons and presents and spent a...
We’ve had Disney passes fro awhile now, it was fun, so fun! We were blessed to be able to have them and we will for sure miss it. It’s especially great this time of year, Halloween through Christmas is fun at the park and it not as crowded and you don’t have to wait in long lines in the heat. But lets be honest, it’s also stressful. Trying to calm a cranky baby well...
But I always will
Do you know that Civil Wars song, Poison and Wine? I don’t know who they wrote it about or what. A bad relationship? or maybe there’s some underlying meaning. I don’t...
Camping trip 2012
We camped Big Sur and fell in love once again. We stayed the first night in a B&B and then headed down to our camp site. This was Owens 2nd time to Big sur and his 4th long trip, the kid does great on the road. Emery did good to, he slept almost the whole way there. It was just one wonderful week. The boys got dirty everyday, we played in the river, walked on secluded beaches, went on a...
Off we go
This past weekend we had Emery all to ourselves. My in-laws have been wanting Owen to stay with them, so we let him stay the weekend with them. We didn’t do much of anything, but spend lots of time with our baby boy. We missed our O of course, but it was nice to get all that one on one time with Emery, something he’s not really use to. I’m pretty sure he liked it too, no one...
Then there went a year
I’m the worst blogger ever. I should have posted a long thoughtful post with tons of pictures last Tuesday, his birthday. I should have also taken a thousand pictures on Saturday, his party and done a big post on that. But, I’m the worst blogger ever. Tuesday he woke up with a fever, not cool. It only lasted a few days though, thank God. Then Friday he got heat rash and he was...
So he walks now
Emery walks now, right at 11 1/2 months, just like his brother. That’s a pretty big deal in a babies life, like something you should remember. The moment they walk and are basically no longer a baby, now a toddler, basically an adult. Ugh, the things it does to a mothers heart. To see your baby grow, excitement , sadness, so many emotions.
We live by the sea
Morning beach trips, evening beach trips, middle of the day beach trips. It’s where we spend most of our days.
Owen forgets the A in America and calls the 4th “Merica Day”, so. Happy Merica Day!! We stayed home again, our whole block really gets into it. Ryan helped the neighbors block off our street, there was kids riding bikes all day, playing football, running up and down, the fire department showed up. It would have been cool if the sun showed it’s face, so we could take out the...
The summer we bought a bus
Ryan often has these great ideas, sometimes they really are great, sometimes they are kinda crazy. The crazy ones usually go away after he’s thought about it awhile and then sometimes he just wont let certain ones go. That’s when I know he’s really serious. He’s been talking about get a camper for sometime now. We can take off on last minute camping trips, road...
I thought Owen was just playing a game, but instead he was sneaking pictures. I found this later in the day, there was a ton that he took but this was the only decent one. Maybe I should tell him to take pictures more often, it may be the only way i’ll actually be in them
To The Beach
We like the beach, ok love. We’re there quite often. I love that we live so close and that the boys get to grow up with the ocean. We’re in need of an adventure, even just a quick weekend trip at the beach. Hopefully soon, but if not. Next summer we have plans to take off a whole lot.
He’s 10 months today. I’m dying inside, just a little. Some stats, cause people tend to do this. I don’t really do it, but hey, why not -He’s in mostly 12 month clothes, not 6-12, those tend to be to small. Some 12-18 and even a few 2t. So i make big babies. I don’t really think they are big, so they have some chunk, but not allot, I don’t think. I just...
What Owen say's
He came into my room the other morning, Ryan had already left for work and Emery was still sleeping next to me. I whispered for him to stay quite and he cuddled up next to me. After telling me good morning, asking if I had a good sleep and giving me a kiss, he said. “Mommy there was an Octopus in the kitchen and it was scary and stinky. But Daddy’s a good doctor and he got the...
This was taken at the begginging of the month, a few days before he turned 9 months. I may have shed a few tears today, cause my baby is growing too fast! He’ll be 10 months next week. He has two bottom teeth, he’s over baby food, he says Dada and Mama, (O is trying to get him to say his name) and he’s already tried to take a few steps! My baby is almost not a baby and it...
I love Instagram, it’s where I’m at these days. Also my brother is back from Europe, I love that as well Follow me on Instagram, I’m Kaygamo on there
I'm A Mama!!!
and it’s the best job ever. Happy Mothers day, to all you wonderful Mama’s!
Weekend thoughts and thrift store finds
I love me some good thrift store shopping, but digging through the racks at thrift stores, with a 3 year old and a baby, is not the easiest task. This is just from 2 recent trips, in and out real fast. I just scanned the outside racks and didn’t even touch the clothes. Twice in one week is rare, I may be on a little thrift store high now and I NEED to go back! I have a real weakness for...
I cant imagine ever given up on this kid. Of choosing another life, with someone else, that meant he would be less important to me. That’s what it feels like, even at 21, when your father walks out on your Mom. They walk out on you too. I have dreams often of my father and it’s always the same, just a different setting and different scene. They start off together and then they...
It's been rough
I feel like I’m that Mom this week. The paranoid, over protective, over reacting Mom, but I swear I’m not. This week has just been rough. Owen’s face swelled up Saturday night and he could barely talk, so we ended up in the ER. We thought maybe an allergic reaction to beets, since he had them for the first time that day. Well after $260.00 in ER payments and doctor...
On the farm
Every other Friday we go pick up our CSA box. Owen will ask through out the week, is it time to go to the farm Mommy? How about today Mommy, are we going to the farm? He forgets that there’s no animals at the farm, just fruits and veggies and he always gets a little upset about that. Then he gets over it, we go to the farm, he helps me get our box and then we walk around the farm for a...
Decorating & Greening Our Air
Do you care what my house looks like? Probably not but I’m going to show you anyways, well some of it at least. We’ve been doing some spring cleaning and with that some redecorating. More like actually decorating, cause really, we didn’t have much going on before. I don’t know why, we just didn’t. Most stuff we already had and just never put up, others were up...
The boys are feeling much better, still sick, but much better. We hit up the Long Beach flea market. Saw some cool stuff, weird stuff , and some creepy stuff. A lock from death row, CREEPY! Walked away with a few good things…. Elvis, a crate, (that will be made into a shelf) old cookbooks, (I cant stop buying cookbooks, especially old ones) a Pendleton for Ryan and an...
Easter at our house
We’ve never had a tradition for Easter, on both mine and Ryan’s side of the family. The plans are always up in the air and very last minute, if we even get together. The only thing that was a constant growing up, was sunrise service every year. Well this year we have a yard and I let everyone know last month, that Easter was at our house this year. I was so excited to do an Easter...
Ignore my annoying voice, but Emery learned how to clap today.
So I never told you about the day they met
We wanted Owen to be the first one to see him, well besides my Mom, who was there for the birth. I know that’s really not the norm anymore, but I could not imagine not having my Mama there. So about an hour after I had Emery, my Mom went to get Owen. He was pretty freaked out to see me, I was clearly in pain and he first asked “Mommy wants wrong, you ok? . Then he started crying...
A picture and a recipe
This kid, he kills me. I didn’t get a good picture of the pizza, so I’ll give you a cute picture of Emery instead. Tonight I made pizza, it was fast, I needed something fast and it was good! Potato and Leek Pizza Basic pizza dough recipe 3 Russet potatoes, thinly sliced ( i would usually use Yukon gold, but this is what I had on hand) 4 leeks 1 TB of butter ...
What Owen say's
“Mommy, cuddle me, I need it! I NEEEEED IT!!” “Hey Mommy, wanna check out my dance moves? “I love my Emery, thank you give me my Emery” “Good morning Emery, did you have a good sleep, ya, well ok, lets gooooo! ( he says this to him every morning, in this very high pitched voice) “Gota watch out for crabs, they gonna bite!” “Mommy, I love...
A few things
- This boy! He can be incredibly sweet and ridiculously hilarious, but he can also be difficult and frustrating. Three year old tantrums are no joke! Were working on that, I ask the Lord daily to give me patience with him. Also if were home, O rarely wears clothes. He tried to leave the house like this the other day - Emery’s been waking up with some awesome nap hair these...
This and That
This was life in the last few weeks. Somewhere in there Emery turned 6 months
These guys are kinda amazing. Owen’s been throwing lots of tantrums this week, i think it’s more like terrible three’s instead of terrible two’s. It’s a little frustrating, but then he also ran up to me yesterday and said, ” Mommy I love my Emery, thank you again my Emery. Ok kid, you’re sweet, I think i’ll keep you. Click the link...
I lovely love my Family
I rarely post pictures of myself because the fact is, I hate taking pictures. I always feel so awkward, I never smile right in pictures, i’m self conscious, the list could go on. I just don’t like taking them. But if I never take pictures then I’ll look back one day regretting it and my kids might think, “um, was my Mom ever even around”? Yes, I was there every day,...
Still don’t think this counts as actual blogging. But for your viewing pleasure, baby laughs.
Emery is fussy and wants to nurse. Emery does not want to nurse, he just wants to suck and getting a flood of milk is not cool Mom! Give Emery a pacifier, he’s happy. Sucks for 2 mins, realizes this is not a boob and I don’t like these things. Thought I already made that clear Mom! Seems like he wants to nurse again. Nope! Just wants to suck, does not want milk right now,...
What happened this week
This guy is just being cute, like always. We had a birthday party for Owen on Saturday, it was Fall/Halloween themed. This kid is pretty much potty trained! I told him his diapers broke and put him in under wear. The first three days was all accidents and there was lots of laundry. Little by little success, today were going on three days of no accidents! Also he can swim now, did I...
