GG

Here is my sweet little Ginger Grace at three weeks old! Her skin is peeling a little so don't mind that:)
I am so grateful for her. She is such a lovely baby. She is a much easier baby then little Milton was. 
We are still learning and adjusting as a new family of four but things are getting slightly easier. I am learning how to multi task like no other!!! I thought being a nurse I had to be good at multitasking but this puts that to shame. You should see me some days, it's pretty hilarious. I've got Ginger in one arm and Milton in the other while I'm trying to make lunch, change a diaper, and wipe a face.
I spent most of my days sitting on the floor now so little Milton feels like I'm still right there with him while I can still taking care of Ginger. My back has seen better days but I'm sure as I loose weight and gain strength it will get better.
I am pleased to report that I am only 2 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight with Ginger. Unfortunately I am 60 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight with little Milton but it could have been much worse having been pregnant for 2 years straight.  So now I will begin the process of loosing all this pregnancy weight and I couldn't be more excited! 
I have been gazing into my closet full of size 6 jeans and high heels for 2 years now and I am DYING to get back into my cute clothes!!! So, I might start doing a weekly or monthly weigh in post. We'll see how it goes. I am also considering running again. There is a half marathon I would love to run in October. We'll see how this goes too! 
Anyway, that's my latest update. Here's my darling little GG!!!

Her G*O*R*G*E*O*U*S headband came from one of my favorite accessory shops Giddy Up and Grow. Find her shop {HERE}

Love is in the Air

originally seen {HERE} via my lovely and inspiring friend Jessica's {BLOG}
Happy Valentine's Day Lovelies!

I just thought I'd share a few posters that I adore and am seriously thinking about purchasing for our bedroom. I know. I know. It could be a little bit cheesy but listen, when you have two babies under the age of 15 months, sometimes you need to be reminded daily that once upon a time there was an abundance of romance.
I think they're pretty darn adorable myself!!!

Valentine's Day Brownies

First of all I have a confession to make. The below photo is the actual recipe that I used to bake these brownies and sadly ALL the things I cook are also scribbled down on some torn, stained piece of scrap paper in my worst chicken scratch while little Milton is pulling at my ankles and God knows what other chaos  is happening around here. 
So, the sad truth is we have no printer and haven't in about six months. I suppose it isn't the biggest priority at the moment but this is a little ridiculous.
Mu husband thinks it makes me a better cook because I have been forced to read and write the recipe once before I even start attempting to make it. Maybe he's right! 
Find the recipe for these brownies {HERE}
Anyway, I made these brownies last Saturday while my hubby took little Milton to the children's museum so I could "rest."
Well as you can see that didn't happen!! As soon as Ginger was asleep I ran into the kitchen and started furiously cooking!! These are the first thing I've made since Ginger has been born and I must admit I'm going crazy!!! I guess I really have found a love for cooking and blogging! I miss is terribly! So, hopefully as Ginger gets bigger and bigger I will be able to throw her in the wrap or carrier and get down to business. I have A LOT of ideas!!
So, I;ve made these brownies before but I thought of doing a fun Valentine twiat with the peppermint. I simply placed white chocolate peppermint bells at the base of the baking dish before pouring in the brownie batter and then placed crushed candy cane on top of the brownies while still hot out of the oven. Then cover and the candy cane will swaet a little and stick really nicely to the brownies.

Here is a little about Melanie and her shop,

"My name is Melanie, I am a work from home mom of two, soon to be three. I love babies and everything to do with babies.
A couple of years ago, I set out to learn to make a diaper cake for the baby shower I was having for my sister-in-law. I absolutely loved making it, and how it turned out. Friends and family suggested that I try to sell them, and that is when Crib Creations was born.
I love making diaper cakes, but found I love sewing baby gifts even more. I try to offer a wide variety of items, and hope to add more such as baby announcements, thank you cards, nursing covers and possibly crib bedding in the future.
My items make great baby shower, diaper shower and hospital gifts, and I enjoy creating custom orders for customers."
Take a look at some of these AMAZING diaper cakes Melanie makes!!! I would have loved one of these at my babies showers. If you are hosting a baby shower consider one of these custom cakes by Melanie!Simply amazing...............
