I swear I forget I have a blog sometimes. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything and not that things are ever that interesting but it’s nice to have a central place to jot things down for future reference. Here’s are the cliff notes:
- Been back to work for a month now which is going good. It’s nice to have a routine back. The only drawback to being full time is I have had to stop breastfeeding all together. I was trying to hang on as long as I could and we made it to 2.5 months, but it was becoming too stressful and I was only pumping about 4 oz for the entire day. That doesn’t really even cover a feeding for Emma right now. So now we are bottle fed. That has been a HUGE emotional decision for me that I still am riddled with guilt over but I’m slowly getting past that now thanks to the support from my family and husband. I was formula fed and turned out ok. Right? RIIIIGHT? LOL
- Emma is growing like a weed. I swear she grows overnight. She is just a joy right now. Laughing and keeping us all entertained. Still can’t believe she is almost 3 months old. *sigh* – they don’t stay babies long.
- Girls are doing great. Been busy with sports and traveling soccer. We had a blast couple weekends ago decorating for Halloween and carving pumpkins. We also had a very nice visit with Grandma and Grandpa Lamb that same weekend. They got to watch all three girls play soccer and carve pumpkins with us and they got to love on Emma. – Wish we all lived closer to have more weekends like that. But I guess the distance also makes the visits even more fun and special.
-Had a low key Halloween night. The girls were with their mom and I didn’t feel like getting Emma out in the cold. Not that she would have much use for candy right now, and Lord knows I don’t need it. But we passed out the candy and everyone loved how the girls decorated the yard and were even taking pictures of the decorations. One thing I don’t understand though is how the porch light rule is no longer applicable? We ran out of candy about 7:30 and I literally sat in the dark but kids still were insistently ringing the doorbell. When I was a kid, no porch light meant no candy…….
Funny story speaking of Halloween – so I had to run to Walmart after work to get the candy and of course I’m in a hurry because I still had to go get Emma from daycare. And who isn’t in a hurry to get out of Walmart anyway? The place was a madhouse. Anyhoo - I grab some candy and I’m walking towards the registers when my boot slips on the floor and I go SPLAT. The candy goes skidding across the floor and my right elbow and knee took quite a blow. I don’t think I’ve moved so fast in getting up although I did have a slight gimp to my step. How stinking embarrasing and to have it happen in front of the store. Why not in a more private aisle or something. I’m sure it was quite the scene. Now I have a bruised knee and elbow and ego. Lesson learned…..don’t rush when in heels or boots on slick floors.
Now moving on to more scrapbooking stuff -
- For the Luv of Art will be hosting a Pinterest crop starting November 11. I’m loving this crop because now I can actually create something I’ve pinned! LOL I will post more details on the crop as they come available because trust me, you won’t want to miss the fun!
We have the weekly challenge up for November too that you can play along with here. But here’s the sketch I created for the Challenge. Be sure to go over and play along!
Here are a couple things I’ve created with some of the awesome MME – Mischevious line that you can pick up from FTLOA store here.
I will leave you with some digital projects I’ve done recently too. Still loving this Heritage Makers and I just got my order from all the layouts I’ve done and I have to just say what great quality and I am amazed how dimensional it looks even though it’s flat. love love love. And I’m super excited to be able to stay up on Emma’s scrapbook.
