Life Happens....

I know I have been missing from the blogging world lately....I honestly can't really think of much to blog about.  I've been so busy yet I don't have much to say! *Sorry!*  So I guess I will just give everyone an update!

I am 7 weeks into being a mommy of two!  I LOVE it!!  I feel as if Nate (or Monkey as my mom calls him) has been here forever!  Everyday he amazes me with something new that he has learned to do!  I do have to admit that he is growing WAY too fast for me!  He apparently received a memo to grow like a weed but I must have missed it!  He is now officially out of Newborn pants.  They are about an inch and a half too short!  And we have seemed to bypass most 0-3 months pjs and went straight to 3 months!  I can't believe it!  He is such a skinny little thing but is SO long!  He brings so much joy into all of our lives!

Miss Cady is doing SO well as a big sister!  She loves her 'Bubba' So much!  She even gave him that nickname! LOL  She started back into Gymnastics shortly before Nathan was born so that consumes every Friday Night.  But other than that she is just the same little spitfire she always has been!  I laugh a million times a day at the things she comes up with!  She is so funny!  Her latest thing is she wants to know when Friderday is.  I asked her if she was talking about Friday or Saturday but she insists that she is talking about Friderday!  So, I've been told that I need to find a calendar with that day on it so I can show her when it it .....hmm....either I'm going to make one or I'm going to have to explain to a 3 year old that there is no such day! :-) I can hear her now telling me that there really is a day called that and that I am wrong....Oh the joys of having a 3 year old little girl who thinks she is ALWAYS right! :-)

As for me...well, I am So proud of myself for adjusting so well to becoming a mommy of two!  Technically during the day I am a mommy to three because my niece Miss Emma Paige spends the day with us while her mom and dad are at work, So I guess you can say I am already training myself to become a mommy of three someday!  I am getting a little ahead of myself in saying three, but I figure if I'm doing so well with two why not add another one to the mix! LOL.  I did recently start a new venture in my life though.  I became an Avon Representative!  I was getting a little bored in the evenings, I know, It's hard to believe a mom can get bored!  And I love Avon products so I decided to go ahead and start selling it!  So, on top of my mommy and wife duties I now have hairbow making duties (CadyMayDesigns) and Avon duties!  Call me crazy, but I'm at a point in my life right now where I am so happy!

(Just a little plug: If you are looking for an Avon Representative check out my website! http://www.youravon.com/shightree  You can order from anywhere in the US on my website and have it shipped directly to you!)

There really is no update on Leif...lol...he is just the same wonderful husband and daddy!  His health is getting increasingly better!  I am worried about his now because the weather is getting colder and once you get pneumonia your body is never really the same again, but so far so good!  Pray for us throughout the cold Michigan weather that we can keep him healthy!  He is working a lot, but I am great full everyday that he has a job to support us!

Oh yeah, one last thing, I'm starting to read the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan.  Has anyone read this before?  I'd like to know your thoughts on it.  I'm not real sure when I will find time to read it, but it's a book I've been wanting to read for a while so I finally bought it tonight!

Well, I hear the baby calling me for a late night snack!

Until next time......

  1. I have been missing too. It is OK to go MIA as long as you come back :) Cute pictures of the kiddos. Growing like weeds. Glad you are staying busy but also falling into a routine being a mom of two. It is a little adjustment but gets easier with time. Enjoy them...before you know it the baby will be like mine and starting kindergarten. I never gave him permission to do that. LOL
