Hi there!

Hey lovelies, welcome to SDB! I'm Natasha. I am a walking, talking mombie fueled by coffee. I am obsessed with shoes, all things glittery and/or sparkly, and I have an owl obsession. We talk about everything from motherhood, lifestyle, and all things inbetween. I am a mom of three kids and we reside in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks for tagging along! Now lets sit back and sip on a cup of coffee in the AM or wine in the PM and lets relax.

What's Going On with Mr. T - The Month of April

I have really been slacking the past year when it comes to blogging. Once Talan hit a year, I spaced about keeping monthly updates on him. I really need to do a better job. 
Talan is one hilarious little toddler and has a great personality. He makes me laugh on the daily. He has so much personality and is way different than Amari was at this age. He still adores his big brother and he is totally a mama's boy. ;)

- Talan is now 17 months. I can't believe that my sweet baby is almost a year and half. Crazy, crazy. 

- He wears size 18 month clothes and some 12 month sizes. He is a little chunky thing but is still rather tiny compared to all his friends at school. 

- He thinks farts are hilarious... He is such a boy and laughs whenever he passes gas. 

- He eats a lot. I dread the infamous high school days when he eats all the food out the fridge, freezer, and pantry. Not looking forward to weekly Costco trips. 

- He wears size 4 shoes. 

- T can say "hi," "hey," "bye," "ball,"night-night," "nom noms" and "bananas." He also waves hi and goodbye. No double word combos yet besides when he says, "My Mama." He loves me! 

- He loves wrestling with his big brother Amari. He is going to be one tough little cookie when he is older.

- His favorite toys are pully toys. He loves pulling them around the house or at school. He cannot get enough of them. 

- Talan's favorite treat is Gerber Yogurt Bites or the knock offs at Target or Wal-Mart. He could devour a bag in one sitting if we would let him. 

- He can't get enough of bath time. He loves baths and will throw a fit every time you try to take him out the bath tub.

- He loves to help around the house. He enjoys pulling clothes out of the dryer, handing Mommy hangers when we hang up clothes, dusting, and putting toys away. He tries to sing along to the clean-up song when we sing it to him and he will even do a little dance as he cleans up. I need to record it. It's precious! 

- Talan sleeps in his big boy bed in brothers room now. He enjoys keeping big brother up at night and waking him early in the morning. He is almost sleeping through the night. We are working on it. The past two nights he has slept through the night!

- He was weaned from the boob at 15 months and hated it! He is still a boobie grabber... 

- He is a good eater but not a fan of textures. He spits a lot of food out at meal times. He loves chicken, fries, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. Bananas are his favorite fruit. He could eat bananas all day everyday for his meals.

- He tries to play catch with Amari or Daddy but hasn't fully developed his throwing skills. He is working on it though. 

- T learned to walk at 14 months. Now he's trying to run... He walks and runs like he's drunk still. There are lots of walking disasters in our house these days. He is very clumsy.

And that's all I can think of for now. I'll add any missed updates to next months post. 

Ain't he just a cutie?! Love him to bits!

Happy Easter

Easter was an insanely busy weekend for us. We had a lot on our plate but we had a great holiday. On Saturday we took the boys to an Easter Egg Hunt at church. Amari and Talan had a blast collecting eggs. Trev took Amari on his hunt and I took Talan on his very first egg hunt. He had a blast even though he had no idea what he was doing at first. I kept encouraging him to pick up eggs and put them in his basket. Instead, T tried to open his eggs and see what goodies were hidden inside. He even put eggs in other little kids basket. It was pretty precious to watch. He ended up collecting about 20 eggs. After work and a baby shower, we headed up north to Olympia. This year one of my sisters joined us. 

Easter Sunday the bunny paid Poppi and MiMi's house a visit. Amari was very excited about getting his basket. Talan was indifferent like always. All he cared about were the nom-noms in his basket. After breakfast we headed to church for Easter service. Brunch was scrumptious and the boys had a blast looking for their Easter eggs. The Easter Bunny even paid Amari and Talan an unexpected visit. We had a fabulous holiday. Happy Easter from our family to yours!
