100,000 Page Views

I set my blogging New Years resolution to try and get 100,000 page views in a month. And by try, I mean do little different than I do now because I'm just a wee bit busy, lol. Little did I know I'd have it accomplished by February! And heck, I didn't even blog every day this month. I'm so beyond stoked, y'all.

To celebrate, I'll have a giveaway up tomorrow, from me to you. I promise it will be awesome!

Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'

It's official - Corbin is starting to learn how to roll. I swear he's going to be up and running well before Audrey was at 13 months. If his sisters are around, he wants nothing to do with peek-a-boo and patty-cake with mom or dad - he wants to watch them zoom around the room, and be right in the middle of things.

Oh, hi toy, I want you

But I do not think I can reach you

Arrrrghhh, I'm trying!!

Almost, almost!


Oh, except I flung it off of me now and I will cry

"Shhh, baby Corbin. It's alright. Play my game wif me."

She loves My First Tanagrams on my Kindle Fire. So much that I never get to use my Kindle. I think we're buying them Leappads solely so I can have my electronics back.

Well, I'd like my Kindle back, and I'd also appreciate my children not downloading games. Like Happy Poo. And why yes, you actually do rub the poo until it shines. Not that I played it or anything.

New Room Ideas

We finally ordered the girls new beds, and they'll be in on Friday. It took us forever to decide what we want, but we ultimately went with beds from Rooms to Go. They are sturdy, great quality, and should hopefully last us for years to come. We'll be putting all 3 girls in the larger kid bedroom. They have a huge closet, and luckily enough - the beds have excellent storage built in them. Next weekend, our whole goal is to put together both of the kid bedrooms. The girls will be easy - the company installs the beds, and I'll just need to re-arrange some toys (and donate a lot!). The paint on the walls is green, and both Audrey & Natalie's bedding matches that. I took Emma to Target, and she picked out a beautiful pink & green quilt set to match, as well. I have art work galore, so they are all set.

But Corbin's room, I'm starting from scratch. We already have furniture, so I needed to get decor ideas. I'd found a cute blue/green/brown/orange sheet set, and was going to put owls on the wall. And then I realized - I'd already done that with the girls' original nursery. Why would I do it again?

So I started browsing Etsy, and fell in love with the idea of a Star Wars nursery. It's going to be the most awesome thing in this galaxy. I'm so excited to get started on it! Here are a few things I've saved as ideas. I don't want to go completely overboard, and I want something that's pretty fresh & modern.

(If any of y'all sell vinyl wall things, or know of a great etsy shop - point me in the right direction!)

Friday Phone Dump

Sorry I've not posted in a few days. To be honest, I've just not felt like it. I've not felt like taking pictures, or doing much of anything. I think I'm in a "winter is still here - I just had a baby 3 months ago - OMG I didn't know a tubal would make me feel like this - I need to work out, but when? - 3 is the worst age on the face of the planet - too much on my plate" funk.

So to tie y'all over, here's some cell phone pics I took over the last week or so.

Audrey drew this picture of me on my Kindle. She even got my eye color right!

And I'm pretty proud of the sheep I drew, lol

Um, that's a 3-6 month pair of jammies - that he can't stretch his legs out in

It's always fun seeing what Natalie will bury herself under

This is the coolest bread ever

Seriously, her best friend

He's the happiest baby

All 3 entranced by Caillou

Hands down, the BEST Oreo cookies I've ever had. Though I only ate 4 because my husband wolfed them down. Jerk.

Whirly Twirly

Yesterday was the perfect day for putting on old Halloween costumes, and prancing around the living room.

And little man just watched and laughed

The, Um, One Face of Natalie

I tried my hardest to take pictures of Natalie - but was told "Mom, I'm too busy being a cowgirl. And I want to watch Caillou."

Which, apparently, was code word for "I'm going to wait until you're busy feeding baby Corbin (and possibly watching Downton Abbey), to sneak in the bathroom, snag the toothpaste, and sit in a corner eating it."

The Many Faces of Audrey

A Few Cute Pics

I came home from work yesterday, to find my photography stand on my front porch. So the most obvious thing for me to do was rip the box open, set it up (erm, have hubby set it up because I almost pinched my fingers off), and play around. The closest thing I had handy was a blue blanket that Audrey likes to sleep with. So I clipped it on, threw Corbin in front, and snapped some pics for funsies. Half way through, I had to change him because one of his smiles ended in spit up. And then the girls came home from Chick-Fil-A with my mom, and decided they had to jump in as well. But they wouldn't sit still long enough for me to take an actual good picture of them - they literally sat for one picture, and then ran off to play. But I thought Corbin was making some cute faces, so I decided to post them.
