I want to remember everything cute my kids do and say however I also want to live in the moment and enjoy them as much as I can. Trying to keep track of three of them and the rest of my “Mom responsibilities” leaves my brain tired and forgetful.
If you are just joining me, you can find Spangenbaby’s Birth Story – Part 1 here!
In my heart I knew that I was not meant to have another C-Section. I asked my nurse to give me a bit more time as long as baby was not in any danger.
In honor of Spangenbaby turning ONE, I thought I would share his birth story. So many of you have followed along with us throughout my pregnancy and then after he was born and his whole first year and you feel like family!
I’m so excited to be participating in this awesome movement about true beauty and being true to yourself. I hope you will take the time to read through this and visit some of my most favorite blogger friends!!
It never is so honest as it is from the mouth of babes…Honesty from a 3 year old!
I’m standing in my bathroom getting ready to hop into the shower. As always,
I have to say that when you are pregnant and NOT with your first, you look to every possible avenue to celebrate this little baby! My Gender Reveal Party was just what I wanted to celebrate this little person who I am so thankful to have.
As part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®, we had a Family Movie Night with the new movie Disney Planes!
I may or may not have mentioned it once…or 2,876 times…that my husband travels.
Today is Ryan’s First Day of Preschool!
It’s hard to believe this little guy is already old enough to go to preschool! All his life, he has watched his brother go to school,
Michael’s first day of first grade
How is this even possbile? Wasn’t I JUST sending him off to preschool? I honestly feel like just last week he hopped OFF the bus on the last day and now we are right back at the bus stop and he’s getting back on…but older and more grown up and OH.

I just want to share a little story with you all.
I had this whole big paragraph written explaining why I think it’s important to be prepared for severe weather (with bullet points at that!) and then I just decided that this following sentence would pretty much get my point across and I decided to erased my original paragraph:
I lived in Joplin,
Today was Michael’s first day of Kindergarten!
I didn’t cry. I am not much of a crier. I was really, really ready for school to start. Michael has so much imagination and curiosity in his little head that after a long summer with MANY days too hot to even send him outside…I am ready for that imagination and curiosity to be unleashed in a CLASSROOM!
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! The other day, I started to realize the things that I say 8,643,710 times a day and started to make a list in my mind.
Ok so the 12th was his actual birthday but I am behind in posting this because we were having so much fun!
Happy Birthday to my sweet baby boy. I fell in love with you the minute I saw your lip quiver in the OR and my love has grown a million times and again.
OK so Ryan is talking up a storm which is great and all. The thing is…he seems to like to replace the “M” sound with a “B” sound…
Milk = Bilk (not to be confused in the car for BOOK which he will then shoot you the look from hell and throw the book across the seat until you realize he meant MILK…true story)
Cows say “Boo!” instead of MOO
Momma = Bobba
Which leads us to Mommy = Bobby.
I mentioned before how much we loved our Water Table! Water is a great sensory tool for kids, especially in the summer! When it got cooler out, I brought our water table inside (empty of course) and then filled it with CRUNCHY hard,
It’s official…I have declared that the state of Arizona tried to kill me. Arizona hates me. After you read this and I tell you how much I LOVE MY IN-LAWS…some of you with in-laws from hell may hate me also.
Today we are boarding a plane (with 2 small children) to fly to Arizona (with 2 small children) to see my parents-in-love, sister/brother-in love and their kids and their kids (with 2 small children).
