Some of you have been asking to see pics of the pocket sling I it is.

Addy loves to look around now that she has better head control! She fell asleep like this..I swear!

Yes, it's all about food...

I know I have been a posting slacker lately...taking the easy way out by just posting pics of my beautiful children. Although I will add I am not as bad as my dear BFF Jocelyn over at Tillaboro Orchard. Well today I have decided to post...oh wait..hold on a min...

Okay I am back. Addy decided that I wasn't bouncing hard enough with her in the sling so I had to go do some jumping jacks.

Anyways...As I have posted in the past, Cooper has some belly issues. I mean, the kid has NEVER had a hard poop, has major skin issues, holds his belly after he eats, and the list goes on. Now we haven't pursued this a lot because they aren't major but once potty training started, we decided enough is enough. Turns out they think he has a wheat allergy (kinda what we were thinking) and are running all sorts of tests to figure out what the issue is. We started a gluten free diet this week (which is REALLY hard) and saw the first signs of improvement today....he had a hard poop!! YEAH COOPER! But anyways, I am always looking for some new gluten free recipes. My internet friend Hanna has provided me with a few (thanks Hanna) but I need some more friends...any ideas for lunches for this boy? I will keep you all posted as to what happens.

On another note, we are always looking to eat more whole foods. You know, the ones that haven't been over processed. Some people think I am pretty crazy for making my own bread, peanut butter, yogurt, and the list goes on and on and on but really I just want my family to eat right! So today when my home page came up there was an article about whole HAVE to read it . It totally validated everything I have thought about whole foods...Yeah for some good eats! I am always look for more ways to eat right so I would enjoy some of your ideas...

I'm off to rescue Mr. Cooper from his room after he has not slept for a total of an hour and a half and has repeatedly screamed, "MOMMY, I"M DONE" the ENTIRE time! Gotta love 2 year olds!

all smiles

I finally got Addy smiling! Yes, she has some funky baby acne, but man is she cute!

Also I totally love these babylegs! They are great for showing off your cute cloth diapers or for these mild days!

Help arrived

My awesomely wonderful sissy came for a visit this past week! She TOTALLY helped me out and I am so missing her already. Bummed we didn't really get to talk much due to Addy's colicy evenings, but none the less, it was great to see her!

lots of catching up to do...but first, my new wrap!

Addy is colicy. She cry's for a LOOOOONNNNGGGG time in the evening and the only thing that mildly soothes her is being held. She is also a sling riding baby 90% of the time anyways, so I figured I better add to my collection. I was going to purchase a moby wrap but figured these were pretty easy to made. I also made a new pocket sling but I didn't get any pics of that yet. Here is the moby wrap! It was SUUPPERR easy to make and SUUPPEERR cost efficant!

Side view...Addy loves to just look at me!

sorry about being a slacker

Did I say slacker?? How about crazybabywearingmamawithatwoyearoldgluedtoherleg mama? That's the theme of my life right now so sorry about not posting lately. Yes I know I totally didn't post any pics of Addy's "one month birthday" like we all tend to do with the first kid. Well, she is the third and the only reason I even got a picture of her on her "one month birthday" was because at 9:00 at night I realized what day it was.

But I digress...

and I am eating caramel macchiato ice cream right now and it is DELICIOUS!!!

and I digress again...

about the whole not posting anything in forever thing: I am getting to it! I promise! The hubby is golfing this evening so I probably won't put any pics up tonight (unless I get a moment of free hands) but maybe tomorrow or Friday or Saturday??!!

Anyways...nice chatting with you. Leave me some love and let me know you still check my blog once in a blue moon.
