Life Happened

Oh my goodness!! I can’t believe how hard it is to find time to blog now. I have no good explanation for my absence except life. Life has been happening all around me. I have been enjoying my wonderful husband and my amazing son.

Eli is 4 months old already!! He had his 4 month check up at the doctor’s office last Friday. He weighs 15 pounds 10 ounces and is 26 ¼ inches long. He’s a BIG boy! We started him on baby food. He had green beans first and didn’t really like them. After 3 days of trying to get him to eat them, we switched to peas last night and he loved them! He gobbled down every bite I gave him! He has also started sleeping all night long. That’s right. I said all.night.long!! HALLELUIA!!! I can’t believe how good I’m sleeping now! It’s wonderful. He loves to turn over onto his tummy. But then after a few minutes he gets mad that he’s on his tummy and he can’t quite figure out how to get back to his back. The last couple of mornings when I go in to get him up he is sleeping on his tummy. He just looks so cute with his little butt sticking up in the air!

Big John’s birthday was yesterday! Happy birthday, Big John. He’s 31 years old now. We had a party for him over the weekend. Nothing big. Just family and friends over for a cookout. There were babies galore at our house! It was a lot of fun!

I have been using a new product for Eli. He has eczema on his face and head. We can’t use any scented lotion or soap on it or he gets a really bad breakout and dry patchy skin. I hate it for him! I know it itches and he doesn’t know to scratch it yet. I contacted the wonderful people at Skin Free Skincare Products and they sent me a sample of their Eczema Relief Kit to try. I have used it a few times and LOVE.IT! I will be doing a full product review in a few days along with another giveaway!! So keep checking back to enter for a chance to win a skin care kit for you or your little one.

I also have been in contact with a few more companies and have gotten some really cool products to give to my wonderful readers. So be sure to bookmark my blog and become a follower to get in on the contests. I will have some baby stuff but also some stuff for mommy and daddy!! Because you all know that once the baby comes, mommy and daddy get put on the back burner.
