What. A. Day.

That's a fitting title...because it was quite a day around here.
The morning started out a little rough. We all had a case of "bed-head" and the grouchies!! As the day went on things got better. We stayed in our pajamas until after lunch just because.
After lunch we headed to Publix for trick-or-treating...but we arrived 3 hours early! I decided to go ahead and tackle some grocery shopping since my friend Lanie Beth pulled in the same time I did and offered to cart Walker around in the Publix limo!
We survived. Marlee slept in the front carrier the whole trip which was a miracle since she screamed her lungs out the whole way to the store!
I managed to cook some delicious veggie lasagna for dinner, make a family run to Walmart, bathe miss Marlee and even make a DIY scarf that came from Pinterest.
Now it's time for bed...which consists of 3 or 4 two-and-a-half hour naps if I'm lucky!
Tomorrow is a new day, I think we are ready!!

Here and there.

This has been our first week "alone" and shockingly enough we have survived and managed to leave the house every day! We went visiting a new little friend named Maille, she's just a doll!

Walker has been playing like a wild man. I peeped into the play area and just had to look away. It looks like a tornado has blown through!!

He's also been hauling "crayrons" around in his big truck. Do they are also all over the house!!

We made it out for our first stroll. I have to say that I love our double stroller. It's easy to push and both kiddos seem happy in it!

And lastly some naked baby love. She's up to 11 pounds now. She looks bigger in this pic than in real life but she's growing like a little weed! We are in size 1 diapers and too long for most of her 0-3 month sleepers!

Unsolicited Diaper Bag Review!

So I searched forever for a new diaper bag. With Walker I had a discontinued Pottery Barn Kids backpack diaper bag that I LOVED! After 2 years it was looking a little shabby and the strap was coming off. Of course they don't sell OR make that bag anymore so I couldn't replace it.

I searched the Internet for backpacks because I love the convenience of a hands free bag. I found bags from $20-$200 but none of them were exactly what I needed...until...I stumbled upon a Fisher Price bag on Targets website for only $40! Here's what I love:
The size
The color
It comes with an easily accessible wipes case
Multiple pockets to stay organized
Stroller clips
Gender neutral
It's super comfortable!
And affordable!

So if you're in the market for a new diaper bag, this one has been awesome so far! I think it would also be cute with a monogram, if I could ever decide!

Here's the link:

Little Siblings

Just a picture post of these 2 little dolls. Walker doesn't pay Marlee a lot of attention but when he does he is sweet with her.
Baby girl sleeps like a champ during the day. She's getting better with her nights which is a huge relief. Anything is better than being up on-and-off from 12a-5a!! She's a great baby. Seems to be easier than little Walker was...but we shall see!
I love that she's all girly dressed in her pink and Walker is tossing an Angry Bird around the house making explosion sounds! We have been camping out at my moms. Who could turn down lots of help from the greatest family around!
Walker has been saying the funniest things lately and praying the sweetest prayers. He thanks God for each person (in his sight) by name! He's also potty trained during the day and through naps. He's very proud of his "big boy underwur" and announces all potty activity upon completion! Like shouting out in Panera Bread, "I make big doo-doo". Very humbling!

Hello World, Hello Little Girl

> These pics are all out of order but here's a little story about Marlee's big debut!
> Labor started Thursday night and I counted contractions all night until about 6am. We dropped Walker off at a friends house and headed to the hospital. We stayed in a holding room for about 2 hours while I progressed and they checked us in at 10am.
> I took an epidural (praise the Lord) and continued to labor, just a lot more peacefully! At 3:30 I was dilated to a 5 and they told me to expect 5 more hours of labor. At 4:45 I felt like I was going to die (full transition). And at 5:00pm Marlee Grace was born!
> Delivery wasn't kind to me so I ended up with some repair work along with a blood transfusion. But a very healthy 8 lb 13 oz baby girl!
> We were surrounded with family and friends at the hospital and of course my sweet husband was by my side for every moment. I'm thankful to not have had a repeat c-section because experiencing delivery was incredible.
> We are home now, recovering and adjusting. All I need is a nanny, a maid and some more naps. Is that too much to ask??
> Family has been here helping out, we truly couldn't do it without them!
> Here are some pics of our first week home. It's flying by already!!
> Thanks for all the thoughts, prayers and well-wishes!
