Asher is 7 months

It feels like covid has sped up life, but at the same time slowed it down to a stand still. Everything is just rushing by and somehow Ashie has been here for 7 months, its even crazier to think we’ve been in Poland for 3 years.

Life with two kids is crazy, but boy do I love it, its nice to have a lively living space even when it’s two kids crying at the same time. They seem to egg each other on when it comes to crying, but when they laugh it’s a beautiful belly laugh all through the house.

Asher is our crazy little guy, he’s so sweet and intense all at the same time, he sleeps well in the evening takes his naps, eats everything, but he will try to rip your hair and face off while biting your nose with his 3 and a half teeth.

At 7 months Asher is :

  • crawling and getting into everything.
  • Pulling everyone’s hair in a ferocious way, so much that Arren is often crying.
  • Drooling on everything, making Arren get a towel to dry his belongings.
  • Pulling himself up to stand so he can really get into everything.
  • Perfecting his pincher technique just so he can zoom in on a tiny piece of paper from across the room, crawl to it and gently like a gentlemen pick it up to put in his mouth.
  • smiles and laughs at everything. except for the car seat
  • cries when he has to go in the car seat.
  • loves to share his food, but is unwilling to share his broccoli, broccoli is his favorite food.
  • makes every diaper change a pain because he crawls away.

I sure make strong willed, cute children.

Happy Mothers day

Happy mothers day from my crazy circus to yours. A family photo isn’t complete without a cloth diaper on a lamp, a hidden plate of candy and a tea cup.

My first Mothers day as a mother of two was as uneventful as the previous mothers day but this time I got some photos out of it.

Being a mother can be infuriating, frustrating and most of the time you feel like you’re running a zoo, but most of the time it’s filed with lots of happiness and contentness that you have your children in your life, my boys fills my heart up with so much joy and watching them grow up is a gift I really appreciate.

Arren my first born son, the most stubborn little fighter in town, but he’s always trying to make us laugh, he’s selling Carl out for toots and basically rolls on the floor laughing when he does, he’s so fun and adventurious and he makes us get out of our comfort zones all the time.

Asher the little baby, is the perfect addition to the family. God, knew I needed a calm baby after the intensity that was Arren. He’s so smiley, grabby, adorable beyond believe and loves to explore. He’s so dedicated to move that it’s upsetting to see him hit milestones faster and faster.

I never thought I would be a boy mom, but I love these boys so much.

Comfort in Mama’s arm

I remember when I became a mother, how it all didn’t feel real, sometimes it would feel like Arren was just going to pack his little baby suitcase and say “bye, ma.  I’m off to live my life now.”  It didn’t feel real that he was mine forever, as he’s gotten older I sometimes still forget that he is still a little baby and still looks for comfort in his mama arms.
