About Me

My photo
I'm a mid twenties girl. Who has the cutest two boys ever. I'm married to the best hubby ever (aka the Man). I'm also a teacher of sixth grade with a masters degree in Education. I'd rather be busy than bored. I love things bright and beautiful and my family means the world to me.

Four months and a Baptism

So we're still here! Last week was my last week off, and after being away from school since April I was stretching it for as long as I could. So we jammed packed our last week with trips to the State Fair, zoo, shopping, early school prep (yuck), and just being outside with my boys.

First off, this not-so little man is 4 months old. Actually, now he's 4 1/2 months old!
 Stats for this month-
Length-66.5cm (87%)
Weight-  14.7 lbs (57%)

 Clothes- 3-9 months pending on the brand
 Diapers- size 3
 Eating- 8 oz each feeding about every 3-4 hours
 This face is totally his dad!
This is his serious face! I love it because it's almost always followed by a big smile. He's up to two bottom teeth, they took about a whole week to pop up and then be comfortably out. No sign of any more to come. He has such a great demeanor still, very laid back, and he seems to be comfortable with anyone who's comfortable with him.

And this is totally me, distracted by something else instead of looking at the camera.

He's super close to rolling back to front on his own, just not quite there.

We also had Ryker's Baptism this month. The service was outside and it was a beautiful day!
Here his godparents make their promises-
He did so well with the water, I think he was more disappointed that he wasnt getting a full bath!
Then, finally, his presentation to the audience.
The cake- I had to stop the Man doing the first cute because I forgot to take a picture! Oops!
Here's hoping you have a great weekend!

 And because we can't do any photo session without our big bro!

Back to School clothes

Like every mother, back to school shopping can be quite the task, however I've caught some random sales this summer so I picked up a shirt or two when they were super cheap and bought Tucker shorts at the end of the season last year. Therefore this post isn't about boy clothes. It's more towards my wardrobe!

One of my favorite places to shop through it Lands End. Their clothes last and are made of very comfy materials. I don't own a lot yet, but I hope to slowly add some of their apparel throughout the next few years.

This shirt is awesome, no ironing needed at all!

This sweater looks nothing but comfy!
Women's Marl Cotton Hooded Pullover
 This coat looks great for bus duty, it's warm and great for the weekends too.

I also spotted this shirt on sale, might have to snap it up.

My favorite store for pants has been and most likely will be is Gap.
I'm addicted to these pants! The trousers are very flattering on me (I think) and have held up for so long!

I like this oxford, the color is fun and can be worn in various ways.
 This outfit is cute, I like the half sweater over the button up, but I'm not a skinny jeans person at all.

This sweater is right up my alley, love it!

Shoes are always SUPER important for teachers, but everyone is so different that I'm not about to hunt some down  - although I've heard Clark's are amazing!

*I wasn't compensated for this, blah, blah, no one paid me in clothing or discounts to post this. These are my opinions, however if anyone/ company wants to through some of these pieces or discounts at me I think I could handle it!
