Time is Flying

My boogie boy was 4 months old yesterday, the time is FLYING by and he is getting so so big! Everyday before Jay goes to work { yes I am up that early now } he tells Kael to wait to do anything new until he comes home to work. Every single day he is doing something new it is so amazing to watch, he is now full on laughing which is the most amazing sound in the entire world. I have been trying to get it on camera but every time I pull out my phone or flip he gets distracted by the light and is my mission to get it on video and once I do I will post it. My next mission with Kael is to get him sleeping in his crib, I know I know 4 months is a long time to have him sleeping in the room with me { I also still insist on keeping the bathroom light on so I can see his face when I wake up in the middle of the night opps } but my master bedroom is up a level from the nursery and I have not yet gotten totally { read: falls into a complete meltdown every time Husband J says its time to put him in his crib } comfortable with the idea of being that far from him, even with the monitor. Once we get the napping in his own crib down it is on to introducing some baby foods. I am set and excited about making his own food from as many organic fruits and vegetables as possible so I have been researching baby food processors so far the best one seems to be this one if anyone out there has a better suggestion let me know!! Below are Kaels 4 months pictures and some other random ones of my growing boy.

Next House

I am obsessed with all of these painted floors I think painting the floor of a kitchen, bathroom or a playroom adds so much to the space. Me and Husband J like to say whenever we something that we both really love in a home " Next House " this will definitely be at the top of our list of this to do!!

These following photos are amazing and were designed by the fabulous Mary McDonald from the new and amazing Bravo show Million Dollar Decorators she likes to use painted floors as her signature look more of her amazing work here

I am dying to move. Don't get me wrong this is not a complaining post because I am so thankful for my house and I love it and I also love Philadelphia but I have realized it is much more difficult to have a baby living in the city. I have been daydreaming lately a lot about having a garage and being able to pull in leave my car seat and stroller in the car ( without worrying about it getting stolen ) and walking into my house. Luckily we do live on a relatively quiet street so most of the time I do find parking right in front of my house however I can't even think about going to run an errand later than 4 pm because I can almost guarantee that the spot will be taken. Grocery shopping is also quite a task in the city again I have to find a spot close enough or pull up on the curb ( risk getting a ticket ) in order to safely ( I can't leave Kael in the house alone ) unload all my groceries. It isn't likely we are going to be moved until Spring so it looks as though I will have to be satisfied with day dreaming. I have decided I am going to give my house a little eye lift especially my living room. I ordered two new rugs that are nice and soft and will be great for when Kael starts crawling around and recently I have been obsessed with stripes so am I on the hunt for the perfect fabric to make striped curtains out of wish me luck !

I want my curtains to look just like these below but a different color.

Its All About The Ride

Ok I am exhausted I have been trying to clean my house get recipes together and entertain my son all day, the days of going to lunch and watching endless amounts of Bravo are clearly over and my body literally is so sore. I have been so bad about updating my blog and it makes me so sad. I love writing this blog a lot and I think it is important for me to keep up with the things I enjoy for myself which is hard while trying to be a great Mom Wife Sister Friend and Daughter but my relationship with myself is equally as important so I vow I will do better at updating. I was hanging some new pictures on our stairway tonight and organizing the house in order to prepare for guests ( Kaels christening is on Sunday ) and I went to put his Birth Announcement away and realized that it was basically my wedding invitation in the form of a birth announcement and it made me laugh. Granted my wedding Invitations were custom made by {} and much more detailed, I picked the EXACT same color scheme without even realizing it till now. Next time around I think I will have to make a effort to mix it up a little bit. I receieved Kaels new born pictures a couple of months ago but wanted to make sure I got out all of the birth announcements before sharing them online. The same photographers {} has taken our engagement photos, our wedding photos, my pregnancy photos and now finally my first babies photos. I love them so so much and couldn't have stumbled about better girls { Cassidy and Emily } to photograph our journey. This is a special weekend coming up it will be the first time that all of Kaels Aunts Uncles and both Grandparents will be together at the same time AND it will be the first time he will meet his God Mother Michelyn, I know he will be spoiled rotten with attention and come Monday he will be looking at me with a side eye whenever I put him down. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

The box below was one of the best wedding gifts we received the front is our invitation framed then then you can open it to store little keepsakes and even has a really nice mirror..

We took our engagement pictures at the Wild Wood NJ Board walk, I had so much fun with it though Jay took a lot of flack from his buddies

Cassidy was sweet enough to come to the hospital and take pictures of Kael before we brought him home, please excuse my appearance in the following picture I had just gone through two and a half hours of pushing and a then a major surgery, I told her I didn't want to be in the pictures with my hospital gown on but she assured me that I would appreciate them one day and I already do!

These are the pictures both Emily and Cassidy took at the house when Kael was about a week and a half old. I love them so so much these pictures are literally priceless to me. Again I ask not to be in the pictures but being the amazing photographers they are they caught me a couple of times trying to calm Kael down.

This was a surprise from Jay when I got home from the hospital. I has dedicated this E.E. Cummings poem, my favorite poem to my Mother who passed while I was in high school on our wedding program and Jay found a frame that matched the nursery perfectly and put a picture of me and my siblings as little kids with my Mom in it. I was hysterically crying { my hormones RAGGING } when he gave it to me, it is my favorite piece in the nursery.
