Catching Up

It's been a few weeks since I posted last.
We've been to Utah and back AND started school up again.

Stressful is the word for the past few weeks.

We'll start with Utah.

We went there in between semesters and to pick up my little sister.

Jackson got to meet his great grandmas and had a blast.

I was soo mad at myself

Everytime we went to my grandma Arbuckles house I forgot my camera so I was forced to use my phone.
And I can't find the picture of me and her for some reason. 

They just loved her, and he loved them.

We also got to see some good friends from Kansas.
Jenni and Courtney are pretty much my second mom and second sister.
And of course I was DUMB and didn't get any pictures
what kind of photo mom am i?

Fast forward a few weeks and today we took Jackson on his first picnic.

This was after Jackson spit up all down her shirt.

Haha Handsome devil

Aunt Marissa took him down his first slide haha I was freaking out a bit.

I love having my sister out here!
She and I work out every week, and if i'm not a beast by the end of the semester I'm gonna be mad!

Getting Old

Yesterday was my big man's 25th birthday!
and Friday my little man was 5 weeks old!

Everyone around me is getting so old :)

Yesterday was a pretty chill day.
Devon got a new nerd game from me and my family and a Captain America shirt from me :)

I'm pretty much an awesome wife.

I made him eggs for breakfast, fajita's for dinner, and german chocolate cake for dessert.

For those of you that know me, this was a pretty big feat.

I don't cook.
I am not good at it.
At all.

However I did make the fajitas from scratch
(no mix, go me!)

And the german chocolate cake frosting from scratch
(again, go me!)

The fajitas were a success.
as you can see from all the mess on his face.
Seriously this kid destroyed those fajitas.
I sooo wish I would have got a photo of him eating them it was interesting to say the least.

Devon's favorite cake

And I got an excuse to use my cook glass cake thinggy I got for my wedding.
Oh so posh

 First failure of the night:
forgot to put candles in the cake before we cut it up
so Devon pretended

This picture was a mommy photo failure dang it!
Failure number 2:
Jackson's onsie says "my dad is super"
I thought it was appropriate for the day, but Jackson wasn't having it, and then I made Devon not in focus.
Fantastic photographer let me tell ya.
I think i'm going to chalk it up to the fact that I was running on very little sleep.
Yeah, we'll go with that.

All in all Devon had a good day which is what I was hoping for.
This morning the little man was being too stinkin' cute after his bath so I snapped a few pictures :)

I LOVE those little feet!!

Some days are so hard with not having enough sleep and all that fun stuff that comes with being a mom, but my goodness I just look at those little blue eyes and can't help but think how lucky I am!

One Month!

So today is April 1st which means our little man is 1 month old!
I can hardly believe it has been a whole month already!

I have planned to do monthly pictures of him to see how he grows, so I was super excited to start today
However he was just not having it

at all.

so the 6 pictures he did let me take were all of him screaming his head off.
Here's to hoping next month is a little better

What I am up to at 1 month:

-I am extremely fussy all of a sudden (However we discovered today that gas drops are his drug of choice, awesome!)
-I like listening to the piano, and Coldplay (score!)
-I can't go to sleep at night without a little snuggle time with mommy or daddy first
-I am still too little for most of my clothes
-I giggle about once a week now (it's hilarious)
-Mom has yet to get a good smile on camera. I am really good at waiting until she puts her camera down.
- I am extremely good at peeing all over mom, dad, myself, and anything else that happens to be in range.
(I even shot my firehose right up my grandma's nose. Nailed it!)
