#DisneySide Princess Tea Party Turned 29th Birthday Party

"I received free products in order to host a DisneySide @Home Celebration. The opinions expressed here are my own. "

Ever feel like you're NOT supposed to do something? 
This party was it. We scheduled our party 3 separate times but our (not so) friend, SNOW showed up and ruined it each time! So we figured we love and celebrate Disney everyday so we would host a party when our family came to gather! Instead of it being the first weekend of February, we ended up having a #DisneySide @Home Celebration for my 29th birthday! How fun!

There is so much to this party that I'll be sharing posts little by little!
First up: the delivery!
We shared our unboxing when it first arrived: Disney sent us so much great stuff!

Literally, everything we needed for a Princess inspired tea party, complete with plates, napkins, tea, nail polish, treat cups, Palace Pets, Duff cake mix, and decorations!

We ended up with a pretty low key party because I flew home from Vegas the day before and was still exhausted but we had so much fun!
IN addition to the amazing #DisneySide box we recieved, GoGo Squeez, Pirates Booty, and AquaBall all contributed snacks to the event!

It was such ana amazing Princess Party and a great way to ring in 29 years old!
Thanks so much Disney!

Pretty Little Beauty Swap: February 2015

I am obsessed with the Pretty Little Beauty Swap hosted by Chelsee of Southern Beauty Guide and Justine of Sleepy Single Girl. I'm still using the make up I got the last time I participated!

I was matched up with Gentel of Leopard and Grace. her little girl Grace is gorgeous and 3 days younger than my little man! She lives about an hour and a half away! How fun!

She sent me a really great piece of mail!

Nail files, Baby Lips (love!), Neutrogena make up remover cloths, Rimmel Mascara, nail polish, and Reese's Peanut Butter Cup hearts!
I'm excited to try out a blending sponge!

Thanks so much Gentel!

9 Months in, 9 Months Out!

I can't believe it's been 9 months!
He's been outside in the world as long as we've known we were having him!


We had little man's doctor appointment and is a whopping 18 lbs 8 oz and 29 inches! The doctor was very happy because his weight is now in the 25th percentile, instead of the 10th like it was at his 6 month appointment.


Longer, curlier, red hair! I think I'm going to try and hold off until June for his first haircut so he can have it done at Disney!
He's constantly walking around with some sort of bump or bruise because he has no fear and will just topple!
His perma-grin is always there too!

Firsts and Milestones:

We have lots of supported walking and will even stand unsupported for 2 or 3 seconds before crouching back down. 
There are 2 teeth now! Both bottom teeth have popped through the top right is making it's way through as well! We've been having some nursing/biting issues but hopefully it will be over soon!
"Mom" is absolutely the first word! <3


Crib is an every night thing and many nights he puts himself to sleep in the crib.  He will only sleep on his side or his belly, and will roll if you try and put him on his back.
He loves pillows, and will drop his whole head on to one if he sees it. Still waking at night to nurse but not nearly as much.


We're still breastfeeding! I'm a bit nervous about what going to Vegas will do to my supply (three whole days without him!) so we will most likely be introducing some formula soon.  I have about 100 oz in the freezer so hopefully we can do half and half when it comes time.
Otherwise, he's eating even more foods! This week has included cod, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn, applesauce, eggs, bacon, a potato chip (!), mandarin oranges, and some peanut butter on bread!
He is so open to trying foods!


And I love it!
Otherwise, lots and lots of incoherent yells and babbles. He loves talking!

His favorites:

The animals. He chases them around the house and then "kisses" them, which really means he open mouth like bites them, but it's his kiss...
Pushing his walking toy around.
Having his head rubbed.
dancing to all music.
Sesame Street!
Falling asleep on mom or dad's chest.
Eating or playing with cell phones.
Taking baths! He will crwal to the tub, stand next to it and just start laughing! He splashes like crazy in the tub!

My favorites:

The laughter is the best! Whether it's to let me know he wants to take a tub, or he's laughing at Emma yelling "poopie", he is always so giggly!
