Skyler Update!

10 Months

Skyler is doing great!! She is getting so big and learning so much every day.



She is usually a very happy baby. She is affectionate and always happy to give us hugs and kisses. She's pretty good about playing with her toys and doing her own thing when I am busy. She loves her blankey at bedtime or when she's cranky.



She is a great eater, she eats everything we eat. She cut 3 more teeth this month, so now she has 4 on top and 2 on bottom. She wouldn't cooperate and be still when I tried to weigh her, but she's somewhere around 21 or 22 pounds. She's still nursing 4 times a day; when she wakes up in the morning, before both her naps, and before bed. She has been sleeping through the night lately, but knowing my kids, I'm not going to get too used to that!



She has learned so much this month. She shakes her head to say no and she hides her face to play peekaboo if you say, "Where's Skyler?" And she can stand up all by herself now! She falls a lot, but she keeps trying. When she sees pictures of food in books, she makes pretend eating noises. It's so funny!



She loves being read to, and helping me turn the page. She also loves baths, as long as it's with one of her sisters. If she is cranky, going outside always cheers her up.



Her least favorite thing is getting changed. She usually throws a giant temper tantrum when you try to get a diaper and clothes on her.



She is saying mama, dada, and Nene (my mom). She signs more, all done, and nurse.




11 Months

Sky took her first step alone this month! Now she is able to take a few steps before falling.



She hasn't been waking up to nurse at night anymore, but she has been nursing a lot more during the day. She's also been eating more solid food. So I guess it's no surprise she's now up to 25.2 pounds!



She wasn't sleeping very well for a while there, but now she is usually sleeping through the night from around 8:30 to 6:30. She dropped her second nap recently and just takes one nap from about noon to 3.



She's getting such a big personality. She has a serious attitude that comes out whenever she doesn't get her way, and she really has a silly sense of humor. She makes funny faces and poses just to make us laugh.



She says dada happily in the morning and when Steven gets home for work, and she says Nene (my mom's name) when she visits. She usually screeches MAMA MAMA when she wants me, lol. She also says ball, wawa (water), and maybe a few others.



Sky actually just had her first birthday yesterday! But I'll have to get that update written sometime this week. We are just settling into the new house and unpacking everything. But Sky is doing great. :) She is toddling everywhere and she is so proud of herself!!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to pop in and apologize for the unintentional blog break. Moving day is July 1 and hopefully I will be back to blogging shortly after that. I hope you are all doing well!!

Friday Finds and Favorites Hop #44


Hi everyone!! Happy Friday, and I hope you all had a great week!

Guys, I'm going to be honest with you right now. I have downright nasty, extremely callused feet! I used to run around barefoot as a child and teen, and to be truthful I often still do. It didn't really bother me, until lately, they started cracking and bleeding. Chunks of callus began to fall off. I know, super gross! I told my husband I was putting lotion on them regularly now, trying to fix them up. He decided to do some research online and find me a good foot cream. He ended up ordering me O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet.




I really don't want to gross everyone out with a before picture, and an after picture wouldn't be that impressive without a before pic... but trust me guys, there has been a HUGE improvement. This stuff is amazing. And it's been making my hands much softer, just from applying it to my feet every day. So if any of you have rough feet, I totally recommend this, and it's pretty cheap too. I think it's around $7.


Alrighty, what was YOUR favorite thing this week? Link up your moments, finds, or just your favorite post of the week! Please pay a visit to my awesome co-host, Anna, and feel free to grab a button (optional). This hop will run all weekend. :)

ATTENTION! WE ARE LOOKING FOR 2 NEW FFAF CO-HOSTS. Please comment and let me know if you're interested!! Have a great weekend, everyone! :)







Wordless(ish) Wednesday


Wearing the shirt she designed. The kid sure has a unique sense of style, that's for sure!

"They went that way" hahah

I made a shirt for Steven :3

Sky was not into modeling my new headbands, but luckily Bryn was happy to help me out :)

My little angel <3

It's blurry, but I got one of her standing!

We made a bed for Kaylee's baby fairy, that I got from this adorable shop: etsy.com/shop/DreamingofFaerie

Brynn had to go to the hospital recently because she was having trouble breathing. Luckily, they quickly diagnosed her with croup and got some meds into her. I guess she wasn't too traumatized because now she is telling everyone about her exciting ride in an ambulance. I am still not over the scare she gave me though!

New bodysuit (apparently we're not allowed to call them onesies because Gerber has it copyrighted) that will be coming soon to my shop! And there is an adorable little boy version as well :)

They are so silly!!

Seriously, I am so clumsy!
