Getting Back To Normal!

Hey Everyone!

Today, and partly yesterday, we have been trying to get everything back to ‘normal.’ We had been gone for a week. We were two time zones away, eating, and sleeping was all out of wack.

At least for me, I have had two great nights of sleep since we have returned. We are still sleeping on a futon mattress in the Everett’s room to get him used to his crib, but better sleep still! I finally woke up today feeling somewhat rested, after I got moving a bit.

We have had to catch up on our mail, our cleaning, laundry, dishes, yard, and a variety of other things. I have taken care of a few bills, and have caught up on my work emails as well. It has been just one giant game of catch up, but I think I’m winning. haha.

We have also had to reintroduce Everett, to better eating habits, and back into his daycare setting, this since he was only there a week and then we left. It is taking him some time but he will be back in the swing of things soon. Speaking of Everett he had his one year check up and did pretty ok. He is just at the bottom of the growth curve for height and head circumference. His weight on the other hand is not great at all. He lost weight since his last check up. He still only weighs 18lbs! We have tried just about everything we could, so we are now trying to supplement him with some Pediasure, if he likes it. He is getting whole milk and real food, but I think the problem is with the fact he still doesn’t have any teeth. :/ I think once a couple come in he can really tear into some good protein and what not. I’ll keep you updated.

In other news, I have some of those photos from our stop in Nebraska! Enjoy:


A very big thank you to Anna Mostek Photography for these wonderful pictures! You can check her page out at the link above. 😀 😀 She did a great job we are loving these!

That is all I have for today I hope you have a great day and I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀


Coffee Talk!

Hey Everyone!

Today is the last day at work until possibly the 4th or 5th of June! That is great haha.

My wife and I have been sleeping on a futon mattress on the floor, beside Everett’s crib for a past few days. We are trying to get him sleeping in his crib and so far it seems to be working ok. That being said we haven’t had the best sleep and with our trip now moments away it will be interesting to see how it all goes lol.

Last night I ran around like crazy trying to clean up the house a bit, so that we don’t come home to the mess that we left. We still had things from his birthday party laying around, dishes that needed to be done, as well as laundry. All things I don’t want to worry about the day we get back.

I was able to get most of my things packed, and a list together about other things I need to remember to grab before we head out. (charger, tooth brush, laptop, etc..) I’m not sure that my wife has anything packed… good news is that she is home early today and has plenty of time to get her things in order. Everett’s clothes are packed. His diapers are plenty. And we have to get ice for a cooler to keep his milk cold.

Tonight I have to mow the grass, and put everything in the car. This will be the real test! I will have to make sure that all of our things fit in a very tiny car, with enough room to fit all of us in the car. We even have to keep the back passenger seat open in case Everett get fussy and someone may have to sit there. So Tetris challenge accepted!

Here is her car: (Tiny)


We will be leaving around 5am tomorrow, and looking to drive 12+ hours. Wish us luck!

That is all for me! I’m signing off for a week! I’ll see you all again in early June! Cya 😀 😀
