Our week in Instagram pictures

I am on Instagram and love it.  I do not have an iPhone...gasp I had to wait until the android version came out. I downloaded it the first day it was available and totally love it!  It works out great too since I always have my phone with me.  Also my digital camera is on its last leg and has to be charged before every use and I always forget this so unless I have a certain thing I want to photograph and I plan ahead, its never charged. 

I thought I would start sharing some of my Instagram photos one day every week with you.  I hope to keep this up.  This is also a great way for me to remember these times.  Most of these are quickly snapped so they may not be the clearest but you get the picture.  So here goes!

Jonah was playing the PS3 this morning when the wireless controller died making him have to plug it up to continue playing.  So instead of sitting on the floor uncomfortably he got his plush Batman chair.  He also got his dog pillow pet for a foot rest.  This is the life! And of course once Tucker saw him he had to go get his Thomas plush chair and his mini dog pillow pet! lol

Jonah had a dentist appointment this past Wednesday and has no cavities...PTL!!! The last time he went he had in each of his molars which made me feel like the worst mother ever so we have been brushing alot more trying to keep these teeth healthy.  We are both so excited for the no cavities report.  He got these lovely red vampire teeth as a prize at the dentist and has been wearing them scaring all of us!
Once I turned 5 weeks pregnant, the morning sickness and weakness have been hitting me hard.  There has been alot of cuddling with Momma 'to make her feel better' which this Momma happily enjoys even when she is feeling sick! Thankfully I am now 8 weeks pregnant and it seems like the worst is over, hopefully.  I do still have to make sure I eat as soon as I get up in the mornings and keep something on my stomach at all times but other than that and of course being tired, I am feeling good.
My poor boys have been sick this week with coughs and runnny noses.  Tucker started out with it on Monday night and Jonah woke up with it yesterday morning.  Needless to say, there has been lots of couch time and lazy days but we are surviving.  In the above picture, Tucker fell asleep on me at 6 pm which really made me realize he felt bad since he had just woke up from his nap at 4 pm.  He has gotten better but now Jonah's cough is bad.  Last night Jonah ended up in our bed and pretty much coughed the whole night so we are all out of it this morning.  Thankfully, Tucker slept great.  Hopefully they are on the mend and we hope to have a great weekend!
This has become my afternoon snack.  Usually, Tucker takes a nap from 2-4 so after I know he is asleep I fix Jonah and I a snack.  Since I am eating much more than usual, I am trying to think of healthy snacks instead of sweets.   This fruit and nut plate with iced coffee has become my favorite! I look forward to it every afternoon.
We found this lovely little gem in our front yard under a rock on Monday afternoon.  Thankfully, Daddy was home and of course he had to catch it to see what kind it was.  This picture is while the snake was in a jar with a closed lid.  It was a fiesty little baby snake! It kept lunging itself at the lid trying to get out.  Bleh. The boys loved it and wanted to hold it and touch it but we weren't sure what kind it was so we gave it to my father-in-law who knows alot about snakes.  He said it was a brown earth snake so he is keeping it in an aquarium at his house. 

I took the boys strawberry picking on Monday morning before it got too hot.  Jonah watches a cute show on PBS called Caillou who is 4...just like of course whatever Caillou does Jonah wants to do.  I was going to take them strawberry picking last year but I didn't realize it only lasted a month so we missed it.  :( And I have heard about it for the whole year! lol Crazy how good his little memory is.  Anyways, I wasn't feeling good at all but knew if we didn't go, it would break his little heart.  We had an absolute blast! I was worried Tucker wouldn't like it or be interested in it at all but he really did good.  The berries were pretty small but it didn't take us long to fill up our basket. 
I have been making my own laundry detergent using online directions/recipes for maybe a year now.  I also make my fabric softener and love it.  I haven't been completely happy with the other homemade laundry detergents I have made so I searched again for a new recipe.  Well I found this one.... Pinterest and like how it combined the Purex crystals with the normal stuff used to make detergent.  So I tried it and ABSOLUTELY love it!!! I didn't use the oxiclean because I already use Resolve spray n wash to pretreat stains.  I wash most of my loads in cold water and was worried the detergent wouldn't dissolve but it does completely and my laundry smells great!
I had to include this one of my sweet Tucker's little boy toes just because I love them!  He is truly growing like crazy and I am trying to remember these moments of learning and growing.  I can't believe he will be 2 the end of next month!!!! Seriously, the last two years have flown by.  I seriously can't believe we will be having a new little life....I think a girl...joining our family in December and that Tucker will be a big brother.  I can't wait to see him with the baby.  I am already praying that he will adjust well to having to share Mommy becuase he is a HUGE  Mommy's boy.

Well that was our week! I am hoping to start getting a bit more energy back soon and my creative juices start flowing cause lately there are none. Also my sewing machine is broken and I don't know how to fix it.  :( Big sad face on that one. 

I hope you all have a great weekend!
