It is! I LOVE Ava Lauryn. It's so vintage and classic! If not Ava.. Eva Lauryn is nice too! But Ava goes with your daughters name. Two A's.
Yeah He really loves the name alexander. So I will do it for him.
I have always felt that way, that everything happens for a reason. If it's meant to be.. It will be. So I really wanted a girl, but for some reason Xander is meant to be here. That gives me comfort

How is the weather down there? Tomorrow is going to be gorgeous!! Its going to be the high 70's and all next week in the 80's! I am so excited!!

Oh yeah! They had fun!! Now he needs a bath soon! (oh the life of boys) Always getting muddy and dirty! But I love watching him play and just having fun. I remember before Gabe was born I was so prim and proper. I was a clean freak. Even after he was born I was always like "omg he's dirty!!" But I have gotten so much better and now I realize so what.. he has muddy clothes, thats what they have a washing machine for. I have just have a whole different perspective and I will with this baby too. It's just great to see him get dirty and literally be a boy!

Oh the grocery store.. we need to go shopping soon! I hope you enjoy this beautiful day with your family!

Lol! Yes let him get dirty playing hard I agree ! When my DD was little if I had something I didn't want her to get dirty she just didn't wear it to play in...but they are kids its inevitable they will get a little dirty and its not the end of the world.

I totally agree!! It's only dirt!
What are you doing for dinner tonight? We are having pizza and watching Rise of the Guardians. Great way to end the day!

So do you cloth diaper? breastfeed? Co sleep

I don't cloth diaper I just never had an interest in it honestly. I don't breast feed because unfortunately with my medications I can't. So I have come to terms with that a long time ago. I do however co sleep for the first few months! Not in my bed but the baby will sleep in a bassinet or pack and play right next to me.
I also love baby wearing! I currently have a babyhawk carrier but I am buying a new Maya Wrap for Xander too. I am very excited!

I had a turkey sandwich craving again so that's what we had it was so refreshing and hit the spot!!!! I haven't tried cloth diapering but I really want to and for the most part it's because it will save us $$ but I never had issues with my DD when we used disposables and if I can get a good stockpile going DH wants to do disposables but we shall see, whatever will work best for us is what will win . Breast feeding didn't do it with my DD because at the hospital they made me feel very uncomfortable and I was young so we ended up doing bottle and she was and still is very healthy as well as extremely smart . I will try it with this baby again because it is healthier for baby, convenient, and saves $$. We do co sleep with DD she slept on my chest and in my bed but I too nervous to do that now so we will have the bassinet right next to the bed...I had a Carrier for DD but she was too small for it for so long it was wasted I do want to try some sort of wrap for this baby.

Crazy! I actually had a Turkey Sandwich today for lunch with cheeto's. It was sooo good! I want another one! lol

Yeah I think the cloth diapers are cute the different patterns they have, but It's expensive to get started. So we are going to use disposable again. I know it saves money in the long run but honestly at this point I'm looking for convenience especially with a toddler. We actually started our stockpile. It's small right now but we'll build it up.

I have actually never breast fed. I really give kudos to those who do. I have been bashed as a mom before because I formula feed. I can't breast feed. I hate that we are looked down upon. Like our babies wont be smart, or get sick easier..
I simply can't I am on 3 medications (not now) I stopped during this pregnancy, but I can't! Im not gonna give my baby these meds.

I do co sleep but he will sleep next to me in his own little bed. I just love knowing he is right next to me and I can keep an eye on him.

I am baby wearing again with this one as well. I love it. Being able to have both hands free when you need them. Plus you feel so much closer to the baby.

Look at me rambling on! ROFL.. wow.. Stephen King novel! haha!

The startup expense is one of the hang ups that I have about cloth diapering and a few other so we have to figure out what we can do and what we can't...I am also about convenience especially when my other children (DH child from another marriage) come to live with us it will be A LOT on just me and I definitely don't want my DD to feel like she is a live in sitter. I can't believe you were bashed for that, hun I could care less about what others think if they have enough time to bash you about why you can't and won't breast feed your children for good reason I might add, they might what to think about what type of mom try are spending time chastising others when they could be using that time to do something productive for their own....ok so I went on a rant right there because i just despise stuff like that. When people say ignorant stuff to me i ignore because i have verbal diarrhea and can definitely put someone in their place quick but I rather not . Formula feeding does get a bad rap I feel and it's unfortunate there are many reasons why many moms don't bf some of which are not voluntary and to have them believe that their children will be at a disadvantage for this is awful !

I need to start getting some coupons because I will be using sposies when baby first comes for sure.

I still get up in the middle of the night and check on my DD to make sure she is ok make sure her chest is going up and down, etc...so I know the comfort having the baby sleeping next to your bed gives you . Being able to have 2 free hands is awesome that's whyI want a wrap too

Oh no! Already getting swollen? I haven't had any swollen feet or fingers... YET. I know it will happen though. My hips are already starting to hurt though. Are yours? They are so sore when I wake up in the morning or roll over at night.

So you've been craving turkey sandwiches.. I feel like the cereal queen over here. I could live off of it! haha
