Life lately – Greyson

So we’re halfway to 20 months…I know! I may not do anymore monthly updates. Just some life lately posts on the kids when the mood strikes. And then a big update when they turn 2. In four months.

In case you missed that…THEY WILL BE TWO IN FOUR MONTHS! Ugh.

So my little Greyson. Happiest bug on the planet. Still.

And the most ticklish. Every part of this kid is ticklish!

And if Fynnlee is obsessed with her boat, Greyson is obsessed with this toy bench.

Try to tear him away from it to leave at the end of the day.

There are so many tears.

A few notes about Bug at 19 months.

#1 He sleeps until around 5:15/5:30 every day. He loves to sleep. He’ll take a nice 2-3 hour nap too. He needs to have a talk with is sister.

#2 His speech is developing more and more every day. He still likes to just yell but we’re encouraging him to use his words. He also has OH. NO! on repeat. He also likes Duck (Guck), More (Moe) and Papa (Pa PA!)

#3 He will eat a few more things than Fynnlee…strawberries, bananas, PB&J, mac & cheese and sometimes chicken. And lots of milk. He’s pretty much over yogurt melts.

Oh he loves to read. Books are life.

And he’s into everything. ┬áHe loves opening every cabinet he can find. And then shutting the door. Shutting doors is his favorite thing ever!

He loves dumping out the toy bins and when he’s mad, he throws stuff.

He will play with Legos for hours (Fynnlee is the same way) and he is getting really good at putting them away.

He is the sweetest, smartest, most amazing little guy. And he’s become quite the Mama’s boy…just like I planned.

You are my Sunshine, Greyson Paul.

You make me happy every single day. Muah!


Life lately – Fynnlee

I sort of missed doing a 19 month update on the kids. I’m not sure why, but I just didn’t feel like it.

Really, Mom?

There are a few things I’d like to note about Squish at 19 months, just so I don’t forget.

#1 This sweet little jellybean wakes up every. single. day. at 4:15. Every day. Happy as all get out. Ready to start her day.

Don’t you DARE complain about how your kid is waking up at the ungodly hour of 6:00 am. I will happily take your early riser for a few days.

#2 She has decided she can exist on veggie straws, buttered noodles, yogurt and milk. And pouches, sometimes. I’ve stopped fighting it. It is what it is.

#3. Uh-oh has been replaced by Oh No as her favorite thing to say. And that would be said in two sentences. Oh. NO!

Her vocabulary has actually exploded…most of which I can’t decipher, but she jabbers all day.

#4 She is obsessed with this boat.


Like REALLY obsessed.

She does not like to share it.

But will with her brother. Usually under protest.

She’s smart and loves to draw.

She loves to read.

She loves to help. Actually she wants to do it herself.

She’s sweet. And Sassy. And so, so lovable.

She’s pretty much perfect. Well, except for the sleep thing.


Fa la la la LAAAAA

The holiday spirit is in full swing in our little neck of the woods. I’m going to tell you all about what fun we’ve been having, but first…

STOP IT! Look at these two. I can’t even….

So we went to the Christmas tree farm on the coldest day we’ve had in 9 months. Brrr…the kids are still a little young to get into this fun activity.

Actually, they were pretty miserable.

But we got a beauty. We’ve only put the non-breakable ornaments on the tree for now…little hands have been Grabby McGrabbers. Will add the rest closer to the big day.


Christmas tree hunting was followed by Mad Mexing.

For a Mexican joint, they have great waffle fries.

Oh yeah.

With winter finally showing up, we’ve done lots of snuggling while watching Twice Upon a Mickey Christmas (87293 times)

Sometimes with our eyes closed.

We’ve decorated the heck out of our little townhouse. Jerry’s massive wreath has finally found it’s home.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Xmas.

We had breakfast with Santa. One little girl couldn’t get away from him fast enough.

We managed to get one decent shot.

Daddy & Greyson too Jacob to Lather to get beautiful for the holidays. And then spent the day watching football.

While Fynnlee, Grammy and I hit the mall for a girls shopping trip!

Fa la la la la, la la, la, LA!!
