6 Weeks

12+ lbs, eats 5-6oz every 2-3hrs, naps & sleeps in his crib, pushes up to a standing position when sitting on your lap, loves to sit in his chair & watch tv, plays in his gym every morning, still hiccups everyday, loves for Mommy to rock him to sleep in our antique rocking chair

We're enjoying our last week at home before I go back to work and Brock starts going to Mammy daycare everyday. Even though I'm seriously going to miss spending all day with my little guy, I am excited to get back on a schedule and I love that my mom will be taking care of Brock.

I've got several pictures from Brock's first road trip to Louisiana last weekend. I'm hoping to get them posted soon! :)

5 Weeks

11lbs 15oz, size 3-6 months clothing, sleeps in his crib & only wakes up 1-2 times/night, started drinking formula exclusively, smiles a lot and occasionally giggles, loves to snuggle and started crying just to be held

Yesterday the Brockster was 5 weeks! This past week was flew by getting ready for our getaway to Louisiana this weekend. We're excited to take Brock on his first road trip and visit my family. It will be the first time most of them meet our big boy!

{1} Started sleeping in his big boy bed. {2} I love how his bath robes make him look like a boxer! {3} Mammy bought us a way cool lamp for his room. {4} Love this smile! {5} Daily snuggles with Mommy are a must! {6} One of Brock's many goofy faces

One Month

B-Rock is one month old today! We've enjoyed every minute we've had with this little guy (even the extreme fussy times we've had lately). He's changed so much since we first brought him home and each day he does something new to amaze us. We couldn't be any more thankful for our handsome little man!

{1} All dressed up & ready to meet our Great Uncle Ronnie & Great Aunt Jeanell. {2} All smiles for a day trip to Farmersville to visit Aunt Robyn & her cute little shop. {3} Sad to see Ronnie & Jeanell leave, but excited for our road trip to visit them in Louisiana next weekend! {4} Napping in our big boy bed. {5} Snuggle time with mommy. {6} Somebody didn't want to wake up after a night at the lake house for the 4th of July.

Brock also has a new friend, Peanut the bear. He grabbed on tight and wouldn't let go!

Have a lovely weekend! We're gearing up for the big UFC fight tomorrow night. Brock's ready to wear his new TapouT shoes!

{Mommy On A Mission} Food Inc.

Hello, friends! Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July. We're back from a short, relaxing trip to the lake house with family. It's always fun to get away, even if just for a night! While browsing for something to watch on Netflix, my hubby came across the documentary Food, Inc. Have you ever seen it? I highly recommend will totally change your outlook on fast food & have you re-thinking where you buy your meat.

The film prompted a trip to a Natural Grocers that recently opened by our house. I was curious to see their selection of all-natural, grass fed meat. I picked up a few things, but I think I'll stick to our local Whole Foods...the overall selection seems to be better.

I did splurge on a couple of magazines that caught my eye. I'm not a chef by any means, but I do like to try out new recipes and I wanted to find a few "healthy" ones to add to my collection. 


I haven't read them entirely yet, but I did make the Gluten-Free Potato Chip Crusted Cod recipe for dinner tonight. While the hubby is not a huge fish fan, he seemed pretty pleased.

Both magazines are filled with yummy looking recipes & I hope to try most of them out soon!
 {Our dinner: Gluten-Free Potato Chip Crusted Cod, Baked Potato, Fruit Salad}
