whats goin’ on?! let’s catch up.

ahh been so long, i really miss writing out my thoughts. i go back on all my older posts and love reading what oak did at that time in his little life. so sweet. ANYWAYS! been crazy, obviously. but no excuses here.

We went to mexico! did i tell yall? it was amazeballs heavenly beautiful. Tyler and I got married four years ago at the Barcelo in the Mayan Riviera and loved it so much we went back and took Oakley for a little vaca/xmas gift/anniversary gift for one another. we had seriously, SO.MUCH.FUN. Although vacationing with a 2 year old was trying at times, we just had the best of time. Oakley was obsessed with the kids club, chocolate milk shakes, and late night dips in the pool. I was super worried he was going to get TMI Travellers …(poops)…. but he didn’t. so all was well and i’m super looking farward to our next vacation.

In other news, Christmas was awesome. Oak got spoiled, rotten. a ton of typical boys stuff. cars, trains, more cars, books, and more cars, haha you guessed it!!

Tyler and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary on Jan 11. i cannot believe its been four years!! its flown by, seriously. FLOWN! obviously when you have kids it does fly by.. but its just feels like the blink of an eye. i’m sure 10 years married will feel like 6 months passing.

Not sure if i’ve ever mentioned anything about it? Oakley has had a speech delay for basically as long as i can remember. He never really started even making sounds other than mama and dada till 18 months. Currently he is behind about 10 months, and for the last year we have been working with a speech pathologist, doing one on one’s, group play-and-say’s etc, and this month we have his assessment to see where he’s at, at if he will get government funding for school that has a SLP  and OT in his classroom, regardless i registered him in pre-k, tuesday-friday 845-1145, which is alot but for his speech it will be great!!! & let me tell you… when i registered him for classes, i went to the school, and cried. and when i say cried i mean UGLY CRIED. One of the teachers pulled me in her office and gave me a box of Kleenex. It was epic. and yes i’m THAT MOM. i’m so excited for him to go to school, make friends, have fun, expand his speech and learn a TON… but i’m seriously going to miss our all day everyday mommy and oak days. wahh. The school is awesome, they have field trips all over to ex. the science center, swimming lessons, music shows, etc, eek hes going to have SO MUCH FUN!!

As for ME?!@!!!@#$(!@&*# WELL. i’m pretty stinkin good. I cant complain. Im feeling good.. currently i’m on a cleanse, which ill tell more later, making a commitment for gym time 3 days a week. doing some serious clean eating. and i’ve finally realized i cant eat like a 15 yo anymore!!! it does straight to my ass, and belly!! bahaha. i’ll be posting my fitness journey soon.

OH AND ONE MORE THING.

i know your all still wondering, and NOPE i’m not pregnant now, and still no plans to anytime soon, if ever.

So thats if for now i think? im sure theres more i forgot to say…. ill be doing an in depth update of oak soon. if you arnt already make sure you follow my instagram i update pretty well daily there.

BABY number TWO

now that Oakley is two i hear it all the time, whens the next one coming? so have you decided on another? are you pregnant yet? are you trying? and to be honest before i had kids i used to ask the same question to other women, not thinking anything of it, but now i find it pretty rude, maybe that’s the a-hole in me ha! i dont think people realize when they say comments like this it could hurt someones feelings or even say these things not thinking just maybe they don’t know the whole story, maybe someones having infertility issues this time around, or maybe miscarriage? or maybe juuuuuuuuuuuust maybe they don’t want to have another baby now or {just yet anyways} and thats where i fall into place. i’m SOOOOOOOO happy with just Oakley right now, he’s at the age where hes just easy. well NOT easy but he gets stuff, when i say eat he does and i don’t need to feed him, he pees/poops on the potty like a big boy, he gets dressed pretty well on his own, and well all around hes just an easy kid. he wakes we play and read and go plavces and eat and then we have lunch and then we do that all over again and then its nap. and again all over again and we eat and yet again you can get play read etc bath bed. we have such a routine and its easy. its just easy. any maybe that’s selfish of me but one works and thats’ that : ) maybe in a couple years we will want another baby because we miss that baby stage but i truly think right now and probably forever one is good for us. i also hear so many things like

‘that’s so mean only having one child’
‘your child will grow up so spoiled’
‘your so selfish’
‘that’s child abuse’
‘only child kids are so sad’
‘if you don’t have another he will be so lonely’

its amazing what people will spew out of their mouths without thinking about it. Just because somthing is right for someone else’s family does not mean its right for mine. We have one kid cause like i said its nice and easy and its our lifestyle too. we like to go places, see things, have things, do things, and i want Oakley to have things, see things, go places and do things, AND i want to be able to give him all that and more {and not the he gets what he wants spoiled little brat stuff but stuff like university tuition}. He deserves it. & if we have more kids we might not be able to do just all that. They cost a pretty penny! Luckily i get so stay home with Oakley and so we basically live on my husbands salary and i’m thankful every single day for this, but again because of this too affording one child later on in life also makes sense for us. Aside from the money and all the other little things, Tyler and I have for the longest time felt one is right for us, we feels so happy and complete and i think that’s the most important part for us, to feel complete. as for peoples comments i just agree to disagree and i don’t give it much thought, people say the darndess  things, and as long as i’m happy with my decisions that’s all that matters to me.

till next time loves.

HAPPY Mothers Day!

HAYYYYYY! So although I’m still posting from my phone 🙁 I wanted to show you all these amazing little photos of my lil man and my sweet nieces. My sister in law & i got this done for mothers day, and think they turned out fabulously. It’s easy when the kids are so darn cute to photograph. Here’s just a few of our favorites. They were taken at a local park just 10 minutes from my house! And although it was cold the kids did great! Photos were taken by Tricia Moskal Photograhy & we couldnt be any happier! I Hope everyone had a magical mothers day and hope you all got spoiled rotten. xox
