I’m not a morning person but lately Punkin has been up for the day sometime from 5:30-6:30 (some days it’s 4:30 and sometimes I get lucky and it’s 7 but those mornings are rare.)  To be honest, I don’t love the early to me mornings. I know that they are only for a season.  One beautiful thing about being up early is the sunrise.

Punkin Two Months

Time just keeps rolling on. Punkin’s growing and getting bigger.  I have to admit that I’m writing this post as Punkin closes in on four months and her second month of life is a little fuzzy.  I blame sleep deprivation.  I’m not going to lie, it was rough.  It’s been harder with number two as I can’t sleep when she sleeps cause I have a Munchkin to chase after.  And when Punkin is down Munchkin wants and needs Mama time.  I’m more than happy to give it to her but it left me exhausted.  I would fall asleep almost as soon as my head hit the pillow.

Fun, Fellowship & freezer Meals

I’m a homebody.  Actually, I tend to call myself antisocial.  Sure, I like people and I have friends but I really prefer to just be at home with my family.  Friends are nice and I do make an effort.  So when my friend K asked a bunch of us if anyone would want to get together to make a bunch of freezer meals together, I jumped all over it.  Time with friends while getting dinner out of the way sounded like an excellent plan to me!

K did ALL of the planning this time around, so it was easy for me.  I basically just showed up on the appointed day and time.  K however, picked the recipes (and decided that instead of doing 12 we’d do six cause who wants to buy that much chicken at once?!?!?), figured out how much we needed of each item and  went grocery shopping (an overstuffed cart and $500 dollars later at Costco plus a stop at Winco.) Five of us went in on this though only four of us made the meals, as one friend had a kid commitment (we didn’t mind doing the meals for her….her husband is in and out, she has a two month old and five other kids….yup, we can cover it for her!)  So six recipes and 4 ladies.  I was thinking we’d be there a couple of hours, not really thinking it through.  Yeah….

Potty Training Munchkin

Potty training was not something I was looking forward to at all especially with an infant.  My friends have been embarking on the potty training adventures and I knew it was time for us to start.  I’ve heard horror stories from friends about potty training.  Growing up I heard from my mom how easy it had been to potty train me.  Basically I wanted to wear big girl underwear so bad that I stopped going in my diaper.  I also had an iron bladder as a kid which helped. I was hoping it wouldn’t be as hard as I had heard and wasn’t too hopeful Munchkin would be as easy on me as I was on my mom.
