Linvilla Orchards

We had a fun little day trip last week to Linvilla Orchards with one of our dear friends. Ollie might seem too young to appreciate animals or how awesome it is to handfeed a cow lettuce, but he totally gets it and likes to be involved. He especially liked the ducks, like mother like son. I could stand there all day throwing dry corn in thier pond, listening to thier delightful "quacks".
In other news, packing SUCKS, and it's too damn hot here for it being spring. This weather is stupid, and I couldnt be happier to leave this summer for Maine's 75 degree highs : )

I love those handsome men of mine. Hope you had a great Tuesday.

Weekend Recap

This is what my weekend looked like. All that stuff is for donations...ALL OF IT... And that was only half of it. Now all I need to do is pack up the rest of it the stuff we own. 2 boxes down! The "big move" to Maine is now a month away. Were all tense yet excited, since there is so much left to do still. Ugh I have a list a mile long. I know I haven't been updating as much, but between the move and Ollie's new accquired ear infection, I've been mentally/physically swamped. Tomorrow I'll post some pics of our trip Linvilla Orchards last week! Happy Monday night!

Weekend Recap: Easter

Hope your Easter was great! Ours sure was. We went to my parents house for the whole weekend. We had an Easter egg hunt, did a little shopping, dyed eggs, ate tons of food! Wait did I mention the FOOD?! Omg, deviled eggs, potato salad, ham, pineapple cake, strawberry poke cake, candy, more candy and oh yeah CANDY! Marshmallow eggs<3 Ollie got to wear his cute and vintage Easter outfit. And despite having a horrible cold, with runny nose, coughs and all, he was a very happy baby! Here's some pics I snapped this last weekend.

Happy Monday!

Stupid "Holiday"

Today for us wasn't any dumb holiday or a memory of a shooting, or even a totalitarianist's birthday. It was just a regular day. Yesterday was Ollie's 6m checkup. He's 3 lbs under what he should be, putting him in the 1% for weight. Our pedi attributes that to high metabolism and burning off empty veg/fruit calories. She suggested more food. I'm lookling into supplementing him though. He's overall healthy at least! 27.5 inches long!
Yesterday he also got to see the Easter bunny! He wasn't too thrilled at first until I jumped behind the camera and made him smile : ) Dave and I got Friendly's, complete with sundaes and Ollie got new shorts from Target.

Today Ollie and I just hung around till Dave got home from work. Then we all headed to the park for some swing time! Afterwards we grabbed a pizza and are currently ready for some much needed rest in the a/c! It got up to 82• today! Phew!
Have a Happy Wednesday night!

Happy Monday!

Alive & Well

Ack! Wow it's been unusually long since I've posted. I assure you were fine, just had some crappy things happen in the last 2 weeks, including but not limited to, Roseola, Pinkeye, and a very loud, ignorant new neighbor. I've had to call the cops 6 times, the apt manager 5 times, the police station, and finally had to go down to the court house in person to fil complaint/see what we could do. It's been going on for 15 days and I'm exhausted.
Ollie is 25 weeks old and will be 6 months old on Sunday! He has his 6th month checkup on Tuesday, complete with shots, ugh. He's been trying to crawl, talk, and sit up! He hasn't quite grasped sitting on his own though and will lean from side to side. I recently ordered sone new things for him including a new shopping cart cover since ours kinda sucked. I got the JJ Cole shopping cart cover/high chair cover off Amazon with free shipping. I'm pretty excited about it, geeky I know! Today I finally recieved his amber teething necklace I ordered from Green Baby Clothing Co. It's not exactly what I had expected but it's still beautiful and looks great on him! He's already stopped drooling as much! And as I speak I'm bidding on a new carrier, or rather a sling, peanut shell to be exact. I really loathe our carrier, it kills my back and shoulders and I can only wear it for about an hour before I have to take it off. Hope I win! Cross your fingers!
I promise I'll update more often. The last 2 weeks were just...rough ugh.
Have a great weekend!

Weekend Recap

Ugh last week I was in some kind of a funk. Come Thursday I couldn't really function as anything more then a zombie. We went to my parents Friday to celebrate my Dad's belated birthday. I made him a Jewish apple cake, which was MORE then amazing, not to toot my own horn but beep! beep! For some reason, possibly allergies, (UGHHHHHHH) I has a splitting headache, actually migrane. So bad that all I wanted to do was sleep. Of course Friday night I got *maybe* 2 hours of sleep, making my headache that much worse. I eventually got rid of it last night, but it lingers today even. I also strayed far, very far, from my diet this weekend. But it was a reward well earned, cause this diet is killing me. It's easy, but gets very redundant. It was a lot easier being vegan while I lived in South Philly. There were more options restaurant and grocery store wise. I decided I'm gonna have a cheat day once a week, Sunday... A day to look forward to.
Ollie is now 23 weeks old and is getting so close to that half birthday mark. Yet he's still just my little guy. He sleeps on me and hold my hand to sleep. He cries "mama" when hungry in the early morning. Only when crying, of course! He wants to clap hands, he's learning to grab EVERYTHING, and he's getting so good at sitting up by himself. His hair is also starting to come in more. Which is creating icky cradle cap. I hate that stuff, but apparently it means more hair growth. Hopefully he gets Dave's light brown straight hair and not my almost black wavy locks.
Dave has off tomorrow, so Tuesday will be devoted to cleaning. Fun!
Have a great Monday night.
