A snack for you,
So we can sleep more,

You have eaten from both sides,
Please go to sleep,

Are you cold or hot?
Tired or hungry?

You are finally back asleep,
Please sleep more than two hours.

Energy they have in abundant,
Coffee I need to keep up,

May the fourth be with you

Standard
May the fourth be with you

Well it’s May, ย (May the fourth be with you ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha) my youngest turns a year at the end of the month. ๐Ÿ˜• Its kinda giving me a bittersweet feeling. He’s growing up so fast, he’sย got almost all 8 (4bottom and 4top) teeth in, he’s been walking assisted for a couple months or so now, and this past week he’s been trying to walk unassisted. Gideon was barely walking assisted when he turned a year, but I guess with having a bigger brother Calian strives to do more quicker. Gideon is loving having someone to play with (and to pick on), though I’m still trying to teach him he has to still be gentle until his brother gets older. I love watching them together, Calian loves to follow his brother while Gideon loves to chase him, they both laugh, it’s adorable, though also very loud, haha. Coffee has definitely been my life saver and fuel lately, the coffee machine that I got from my in laws when Mr.K and I got married is still working great and hasn’t let me down. ๐Ÿ˜€

We’ve had a lot of flooding and ย tornadoes here in Texas this Spring and last Fall, our yard has become a moat a few times during the heavy rains. ๐Ÿ˜› Even though I’m enjoying the rain and all I can’t wait for some sun! I’m going to be buying some ant killer since our yard is being taken over, so I can actually let the boys out to play without having to worry about them getting covered in ants. We could all really use the sun, I also miss the tan I use to have before apartment life.

Next month we are going on a kayak trip with some friends, I can’t wait! It’ll be up at beavers bend in Oklahoma. Hopefully the weather will be extra nice and warm. Its been two years since our last trip, ย we’ve been trying to go once a year but last year two of us moms were 8+months pregnant or just had a baby so we figured we’d skip it. It’ll be an 11mile trip down river so it’ll be almost a whole day trip (last time we got done 2 or hours ย early, we’ll see how we do this year).ย 

I’m still working on my photography ย and actually have a few pictures for sale on a couple photo stock websites. (If you wanna check them out I’m on istock and fotolia) I don’t got a lot of pictures up but I’m working on it and still trying to get the hang of it, they are mainly moon, sunset and scenery pictures for now, but I enjoying taking them so guess that’s good. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also got my own photography page on Facebook, N.K Photography, if you want to check out more of my pictures there. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m still working on my writing, haven’t done a lot but I do what o can during nap time. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I’ve got a few stories going, all of which are different from the other. I’ve got one set in a fantasy kind of land, another is what some people call steam-punk mixed with some sci-fi, another is modern day with FBI, and the other is set in a modern small town. I’m hoping to at least get one of these finished soon but we’ll see what happens. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ ย 

 

 

Daily Prompt: Predictions

Standard

There are 344 days remaining in the year. Describe what youโ€™d like to be doing on day 211. (Hint: thatโ€™s July 30th.)

Well, July 30th is Gideon’s birthday and he’ll be turning 2 that day. ๐Ÿ˜€ So hopefully we’ll be doing something fun that day, maybe a trip to the zoo, or the lake. Gideon ain’t that fond of cake so I might make him a Fruit Salad for him instead again.

My baby is growing up so fast! :’)

Warms my Heart <3

Standard

Mr. K had an early day at work today, so when he got home he let me lay down and try to take a nap, though-sadly-I wasn’t able to fall asleep, but I’m still enjoying some peace while curled up under the covers on our bed while he watches the baby.

I can hear them out in the living room, and it just warms my heart; to listen to him read stories from Gideon’s baby bible, or play with him with his toys (right now Gideon’s fav toys are Woody and Bulls-eye ย from Toy Story). Gideon finds his daddy very funny sometimes, and I just love to hear him laugh and having fun. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

My weekend

Standard

So far my weekend has consisted of a cranky fussy baby who only seems to be happy when Mommy holds him or when daddy is home to play or hold him, being curled up under blankets to stay warm, watching a movie or two with the Husband or playing video games with him (I’m actually get better at them! YaY!) cooking and cleaning. Oh and a little bit of relaxing during nap time and after bed time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today Gideon went down for an early nap around 10am, I tried to lay him down in his bed so I could write, but as soon as he started to leave my arms he woke up and started to cry refusing to want leave Mommy’s arms, so I took him back to the living room and rocked him back to sleep. Not wanting to sit and just play on my phone, I decided to bring him to our bed and lay him down next to me so I can write and come online. He woke up a little bit but fell back asleep, and after getting my arm back from under him I’m free to write now. He’s been napping for almost 3 hours which from the last almost week, is a record! I’m really not sure what’s wrong but he just hasn’t been sleeping well lately, and that means I don’t either. Yesterday I was so tired I finally gave in and had a cup of coffee around 2pm, which I later regretted-I was up and awake until sometime after midnight, I think I might just stick to decaf after 2pm. ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyways, even though the fussing is really wearing me out and it’s keeping me from getting things done, I do take some pleasure in the fact that just hold him for a little while seems to make him feel better, and to watch Mr. K hold or play with him to help keep him calm it just warms my heart all the way. โค

Cuddling with mommy

Cuddling with mommy

Since today is Shabbat, I’m not doing a lot of cleaning but thankfully Gideon hasn’t made a huge mess of everything…yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m really hoping the weather gets a little warmer tomorrow like they say it’s suppose to. I’d love to get Gideon outta the house for a little while without worrying if he’s freezing or not. Sure we’ve got a nice warm coat for him, but poor baby can barely walk with it on.

 

It’s December O.O

Standard

“Today is a gift, that’s why it’s called the present.”ย 

I don’t know about y’all but for me, this year has really flown by way too fast! And when I think about how much my son has grown over the past year, makes me almost want to cry. He’s getting so big, and there are times I just want to hold him and not let go, I don’t want him to grow up too fast, but I know that there is nothing I can do about it. Just like there was nothing my parents could do about me growing up, its just part of life and we just need to cherish every moment we can with our loved ones.

I mean, I remember when my youngest brother was born, and now in just a little over 20 days he’s going to be 17 years old!!

OMG!!!! The twins are going to be almost TWENTY in a little over a year!! (HAHA…you two are soon going to know how it feels not to be a teen!! ๐Ÿ˜› )

Other then everyone getting old and growing up so fast, 2013 has really been a great year! ๐Ÿ™‚ Gideon turned one, and started saying mama and dada, he’s walking (almost running) around a lot, ย Mr. K and I are doing great, haven’t lost any loved one (I pray for those who have lost loved ones this year, I know it’s not easy, probably especially now that the Holidays are here).

I can’t wait to see what next year has in store for us! ๐Ÿ˜€ Maybe…just maybe…we’ll let a house, if not though, living in the apartment isn’t that bad and it fits all of us just fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

We’ve also been getting some good Winter weather lately here in Texas, which is surprising seeing how last year we didn’t get any good cold winter weather until like the end of December or beginning of January. Gideon had his first Hot Cocoa, and he loved it! ๐Ÿ™‚ He didn’t like it when mommy had to take it away because it was all gone. I was a little surprised that he like it though, cause usually he doesn’t like a lot of sweets or much chocolate (he gets that from me), but lately he’s been liking more and more chocolate things. He likes brownies and ย M&Ms, when I pull out the M&Ms he’ll start doing this dance thing where he’ll march in place and sometimes flap his arms. It’s SOO Cute!! ..and funny. I tried videoing it the other day but my phone didn’t want to listen to me..go figure, I swear instead of calling it the smart phone it should really be called the stupid phone, just say’n. ๐Ÿ˜›

I forgot to mention in my other post the other day, that since I’m done with NaBloPoMo and NaNoWriMo, I’m going to try and pick back up on my other stories so I can update the one on here and on my other blog (wordsonapg.blogspot.com). I really feel bad for neglecting them and for also kinda forgetting about to post on the other blog more often. I’m thinking I should try to re-download the app for my phone for it, so it’s easier to post. Hopefully they’ve fix some of the things that was messing it up. I’m also really hoping by next November that I’ll have finished the three stories I have going on right now, and that I’ll do way better at bothย NaBloPoMo and NaNoWriMo, we shall see though, you never know what could happen in a year, right?

I really hope everyone is enjoying their Holiday Season, ย we do Hanukkah not XMas, and it’s been really great so far. Gideon likes to watch when we light the candles every night, on the first night, he liked the candles so much that he walked right up to the menorah which was on a small table under the TV (which by-the-way, Daddy was stand over) grabbed it and walked off with it without Daddy really realizing that he had taken it. The only reason I knew he had it was because he had put it on the floor by our recliner and the light from the candles was shining off of the side of the chair. Thankfully he didn’t burn himself or set anything on fire. ๐Ÿ™‚ But we now keep it up on the Dining Table out of his reach just in case.

Children and Roadtrips

Standard

I am not going to totally enjoy it when Day Light Savings ends on Sunday! Lately (hopefully not jinxing myself here) Gideon has been sleeping in until close to 10am most mornings…I’ve been loving it!! ๐Ÿ˜€ A few hours of me time most mornings is great! But I think when Day Light Savings ends so will my ‘me time’ in the mornings. I know that probably sounds kinda selfish but I can’t help it. ๐Ÿ˜› Don’t get me wrong I love spending time with my baby (and Husband when he’s home from work) but just to sit in bed, working on my stories or just surfing the net without having to worry bout someone getting into something or needing something or crawling all over me, its kinda nice. Even my cat doesn’t bother me, she just curls up next to me and sleeps. Though for the past few days I’ve been either sleeping in myself or when I do get up I don’t have much time so I’ll just play on my phone for a little before Gideon needs me to get him outta bed…plus he’s been getting up closer to 9am lately also. I think he’s been going to some growing spurts also, yesterday he was extra clingy to mommy, but that’s okay, I liked it. ๐Ÿ™‚

He’s growing up so much, I wonder sometimes where my little baby went, now I’ve got a growing very active toddler, who’s just so cute, even when he does pout its its adorable and I sometimes have a hard time not laughing.ย 

I’d love to have another child again soon, but Mr. K thinks it’d probably be best if we waited a little while, which I understand and agree, though I do miss having a small baby around and to hold. Gideon would be an awesome big brother, I just know it. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

So next year we’re thinking on going on a small family road trip to somewhere we haven’t gone before, but also that’s not too far away. Just got to figure out where. I’ve been following this page on Facebook called Road Trips and they post a lot of interesting places that are right here in America. So maybe we’ll find one that’s close to us and go there. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thinking maybe Kentucky, or Arkansas, or maybe Louisiana, not sure yet, but I bet it’ll be lots of fun! ๐Ÿ˜€
