It's been non-stop since we got back from our family vacation. Has it been 3 weeks already!!! Take me back to the beach! 

I even forgot to do a 7 month post for baby M! I'll just wait for the 15th and do a 8 month post :) 

What have we been up to in the last 3 weeks... 

Many sushi dates with the boys :)
Little k asks us weekly to go out for sushi! 

Baby m is eating a lot these days and perfected the pincer grip! 

My boys love to eat! 

So do I ha! But I'm trying very hard to watch what I eat and exercise a couple times a week. Although, it gets tough when the kids get sick with the flu. Tired mommy makes for lazy eating junk food. But we are 7 months postpartum and 7 pounds away from pre-preg weight. 

Okok back to the kids.
We put foam Mats down in the upstairs playroom. Baby m is crawling all over and trying to lift himself to stand! 

Easter was a lot of fun with family. 

The kids had an Easter egg hunt. They got so many easter gifts too, no shortage of chocolate here. 

Total cuteness right here. I can't handle his squishy body.

My niece turned 3 last week. She loved her princess party. She's a little princess. 

Ha! How cute is that pic. My boys are surrounded by princesses! 

Both kids were under the weather last week so we didn't do much! 

Just a lot of family time and snuggles for these boys. 

Yesterday we had 2 birthday parties. K's friend's bday and a family party. My godfathers 60th birthday! 
It was a surprise party, which was so much fun! 

I've been absolutely loving my time home with my boys. We have just 4 months left of maternity leave. Mommy won't be around full time anymore :( it makes me so sad! I'm so lucky to have had this time off. Especially with little k in school. I think he really enjoys having me pick him up and there for his every need. 

So we are trying different things that can help us have as much time with our boys as we can when it's  back  to work. Things like walmart grocery pickup that we just tried today. It Was great! I ordered online then went to walmart, called them and they came out to my car with my groceries! How great is this! The kids were happy in the car and no expensive grocery bill from having my 4yo wanting everything in sight! 

I have so many topics to blog about! Hopefully I'll be back on schedule this week! 

Have a great Monday friends!

Family vacation

This March break we took the kids to Jamaica! We went to Gran Bahia Principe runaway bay. We came to this resort 6 years ago. It's actually better than it was. We had a wonderful stay!

On the way there baby m slept on the plane, the whole way! Little K played and watched a movie.
He was Soo interested and asked a lot of questions as he looked out the window. His favorite part was landing. His eyes were glued to the window. 

The resort was beautiful and the weather was amazing! 

Our suite had a big King bed, a twin bed and a crib. We faced the pool and ocean but surrounded by Palm trees. 

We spent most our days on the beach!
And I mean days 9am-5pm some days we didn't go to the pool at all. The beach and the sun and breeze was soo relaxing.

It was a short walk to the beach but we loved the walk. Stopping for coconut water and taking in the view!
Little k would take his sweet time! 
The water is calm and great for small kids. He played in the sand for hours! 

We took some professional pics on the beach too. Cutest beach pics! 

The pool was nice and big. Both kids love the water, ocean and pool. 

I think lunch was our favorite time of the day. Ha! Delicious jerk chicken at the beach restaurant. Oh! And daily live music too! Eating lunch with a view was soo awesome. 

Breakfast was pretty good too. Better when we sat outside of the buffet. The weather was so great, we just wanted to soak it all up! 

Dinners were a little tougher with the kids because they were tired at 7pm so After dinner we would go to the lobby to relax and listen to the live band but the kids would fall asleep! The kids show was pretty late but we got to it a couple times. 

The stroller came in handy... For big boy more than baby. Ha! 

Overall it was a great vacation. Resort and staff was great. Not one complaint. The kids really enjoyed it. We all did. With 2 kids it was a little extra work getting around. We had so much fun and soaked up all the sun. But we were all ready to come back home to the calm of things. Little k would ask why we were there for 100 days haha! He totally cracked us up. Little k owned his vacation, he would stand by the shore and soak in the sun and view. Baby m hit so many milestones while we were there. Crawling and feeding himself cheerios! 

Our first family vacation as 4!

Baby food. Pears, peaches and peas

Kristian was up early today so we had a early start to our day. We went grocery shopping and then spent the afternoon at home watching soccer and making baby food and pizza for dinner yum!

We were cheering for Spain and Italy and they both won. Yay!

I made peach purée with fresh organic peaches. I cut up the peach, removed the pit and blended. I added about 2oz of water. Add more or less depending on how thin or thick you want the purée.

I also made peas. I used frozen organic peas. I boiled them. I usually steam everything but with peas I like them boiled. Once boiled I blended them up into a purée, again adding about 2oz of water.

Pears are a favorite with baby boy. So I I make them weekly. I peel, cut and remove the seeds of the pear. Steam and purée.

We are stocked up! In the freezer we have pears, peas, peaches, squash, zucchini,apricots, carrots, chicken and squash. Yum!

Today I also bought baby pasta ha! How cute!

First fathers day

We had a fun BBQ weekend. Saturday night at my brothers house for his mother inlaws 65th birthday and Sunday Fathers day we spent it at my inlaws place for a delicious BBQ lunch and a afternoon of watching soccer. Perfect for my boys.

Kristian wore a cute outfit just for dad ;)

Hope you all had a great weekend!

A little this and that

Baby K was a little fussy this morning. I'm blaming teeth but also started to consider something else. A decrease in my breast milk supply. I'm not a 100% on that but have a feeling! So I decided to up his food intake. Our Pedetrician told us by 9 months more food less milk anyway so I'll see how it goes.

Yesterday I made apples and pears purée thicker and chunkier. Baby K loved that! Whoo!

He is learning and growing so much so fast! Giving high fives, clapping hands and opening and closing his hands to say hi or bye. He is always paying close attention to us when we speak to him and even responded in baby babble haha!

He is full of energy and loves attention. He knows all eyes are on him all the time. Haha!

A friend recommended Phil and Teds lobster high chair so I bought it and bring it around with us in the car. We used it at my moms house yesterday. It's perfect!

Today we went over to my aunts house and sat by the pool. Kristian loves the water. We will need to bring him for a swim soon!!

I really want to take him on a trip before I go back to work in the I'm hoping to get his passport soon!

This weekend is full of events. Birthday party and fathers day. We are excited for the weekend!
