What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hi Lovelies!!

Tonight I'm sharing a list of all of my ridiculous obsessions. If these types of posts have taught me anything, it's this: I'm so basic and I am happy with that. 

1. How I Met Your Mother



I recently discovered this gem of a TV show on Netflix. I have been watching it during our early morning feeding times (2AM and 6AM) and I have been enjoying it.

2. Farmer's Markets




3.  Candy Corn M&Ms



These are seriously the greatest things!! Love them!!!

4. Nutella

 
I could eat this by the spoonful and I hate to admit it but I have. Several times!!

5. My new Monthly/Weekly Day Designer from Target



This is not a picture of my planner, but I do love it!! I like the schedule and the to do list and it has really helped me plan my day out more.

What are you loving this Wednesady?

Tuesday Tidbits

Hi Lovelies!! 

Well, school is in full swing over here!! Angelina has been in kindergarten for a month and is really enjoying it. We had attempted to homeschool her for preschool but we quickly learned that she is more of a social learner and wants to be around kids her age. She is thriving and learning so so much!! We are so proud of her.

Cadence is 7 weeks today. It's amazing how much she has grown. She is such a sweet baby and is just the cutest thing in the world (I know, I am a bit biased). 

Angelina has her first field trip in a couple of weeks. She is so excited about it. 

I cannot believe that it's almost October and that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. 

I finally started watching  The Voice and I am loving it more than American Idol. 

Well, there you have it, just some of the things that I have been thinking about lately. Have a great evening and I will talk to ya tomorrow!! Good Night!!

Cadence- One month

Hi Lovelies,

I know I have not shared my birth story yet (this will a post later in the week), but I just wanted to share Cadence's monthly stats with you. I cannot believe that she will is 5 weeks old already. Time does fly, doesn't it? I am cherishing these moments for as long as I can and I am soaking up all of the baby snuggles. Also, I am enjoying seeing how Angelina interacts with Cadence. She is very protective of her and just loves her to pieces. 

Anyway, here are Cadence's monthly stats:

Weight:  Right now she is almost 9 pounds give or take a few ounces.

Height: At her 2 week appointment she measured at 20 inches, she seems to have grown some in the last few weeks though.

Eating: She is exclusively formula fed and right now she is taking between 4 to 6 ounces every 3-4 hours. 

Sleeping: She is taking a nap after every feeding and she has slept in 4 hour stretches at night. This means that she wakes up twice in the middle of the night to eat. 

Clothing size: She is still in newborn sizes and sometimes she can wear 0-3 months sizes depending on the brand.

Likes:  She loves to lay in the floor and loves to kick her legs!! She loves her daddy and sister!

Dislikes: She hates having a wet diaper.

Playing: Right now she isn't playing, but that will change in the next few months. We can't wait to see how she plays with Angelina. 

Well, there are her monthly stats!! I am not sure if I will be sharing pictures of Cadence just yet. I have to discuss this with the Hubster. It's completely up to him if I do. 

Good night my Lovelies!!!
