How long does it take mom to give herself a pedicure?

Very good question, if I say so myself. With the weather being nice last week, of course what does that mean? Well you are right, time to break out the beloved flip flops of mine, my favorite type of shoe. And I hate to admit but the love of the flip flop has rubbed off on my boys. Comfortable, fashionable, affordable and just slipping them off anytime, oh pure bliss.
So back to my question of how long does it take mom to give herself a pedicure? Well, in my case, 4 hours total. That's right 4 hours. Why you ask? Let's see, you start, then hubby needs to ask you something and you discuss that, one of your children needs to go to the bathroom and then it is time for lunch. Clean up after lunch, occupy 4 year old with an activity, put 2 year old down for a nap and try to pick up where you left off. Then phone rings about changing an appointment, business call and then need to check something on the computer, and 4 year old needs to go to bathroom again. Back to pedicure, start talking to husband about things he is doing and slowly finish up just in time for 2 year old to get up from nap. Next time, I will leave and go for a relaxing hour instead of doing it myself, it will make life much more simple to relax and then come back and focus on everything else.

Still praying...

If you read my last post little Stellan is still in SVT (Supra Ventricular Tachycardia) and they are trying a lot of different drugs to help his little body get back to a normal heart rate. He is fighting hard but the doctors are trying their hardest to get the normal heart rate with medicine before they explore other options. Please keep this family in your prayers as they go through this hard time. We pray that little Stellan has a speeding recovery and his heart heals itself as it did before.

Our evening at Centennial Park

Last week on one of our many nice days we decided to go over to Centennial Park in Owasso to take a few pictures. There isn't very much play equipment but a lot of trails and bridges to cross and the boys loved that. Next time, I believe dad and the boys are going to take their fishing poles which will make for some really great pictures. The water was pretty and I loved the fountain, I can't wait for everything to get green then you know pictures will be pretty.

Elijah and Nicolas would like to introduce you to their new cousin Dalton. Little man is now seven weeks old and he is a cutie, so I thought I would share some pictures from last Friday night over at Mimi and Papa's.

Mimi with all three grandsons.

Eli loved holding him and kept checking on him the whole night.

After a minute of holding him, Nic stated "done" and was off to play.

And of course we can't forget Uncle Doug.

Lastly, Aunt Daniele and you know we love babies around here and this little one is an eating machine.
By Christmas this little man will be on the move and what in the world are we going to do with three little boys running around the house. I have a feeling it will be quite noisy and busy, these boys are going to keep us on our toes.

Time for the big reveal. As previously posted I have started my own business, it gives me something to do in what little spare time I have and I get to stay home with the boys in the process. So without further ado I am introducing Diaper Cake Designz. It all came about with an idea for a baby shower I was hosting for the boys godmother/Doug's cousin. With Doug's encouragement to start my own business and help from many other valuable family and friends we are launched on the web and all over town. This past Saturday, we had a booth at Baby Fest at the UMAC and it was such a success. I would love to thank my wonderful husband for his support and encouragement and everyone else who has been very supportive and extremely helpful during this process. Without your involvement this could not have happened. So keep us in mind for your next baby shower or baby gift. Our motto is, "affordable, elegant and practical." We do offer free delivery to the Tulsa area and most orders can be delivered the same day if placed by 11 a.m. Outside of the Tulsa area at least five days notice to ensure a timely delivery. If you click on the tab to the right it will take you to our website. Thank you for looking and hope to help you with your baby shower/new baby gift in the future.

Share one must share the other..

After posting a photo of Nicolas being messing I am posting a picture of Elijah being messy. You just can't post one without sharing about the other. Now both boys reactions to peas were completely different. Eli absolutely hated them, he only ate sweet potatoes and loved fruits and still does to this day. Although on occasion if we get creative we can get him to eat a few vegetables. If you notice the towel behind him in his high chair I was a little protective of that lovely high chair and hated washing the cover all of the time. It got plenty of use with both boys and then they think they are big enough to sit in big boy chairs.

iHeartFaces week 8 - Messy

This week's category over at iHeartFaces is Messy and as you can see there has never been any way of keeping this boy clean. Nicolas doesn't care if he gets dirty and has never had a problem about dumping his food or drink all over him and anything else surrounding him. This is a picture of him when he was 9 months old eating one of his favorites, Peas. I guess you would call it eating he mainly wore it, so much for clothes without stains we finally started just letting him eat in just his diaper, a lot less laundry that way. Go check out iHeartFaces and enter the contest or just look around at everyone else's adorable photos.
