The Cutest Bows Right to Your Door!

So I love mail, packages and what have you. I do a lot of my shopping online and I have a lot of mail subscriptions. One of my more recent discoveries since having a baby girl, Little Poppy Co.

A 3 bow a month subscription for only $11.99/month!
(When my 4 year old was a baby I bought custom made bows online all the time and spent up to $8-$10 a piece on them. If you do the math on this subscription you’re only spending about $4 a piece)

The link below will take you to their website where you can sign up for your subscription using my referral.

In case you lost track of time

Welcome to the end of April. I’m going to use this entry to update any followers as to what’s going on in my life since I’ve been gone quite a while without writing a post. Sometimes it just seems impossible to remember to maintain it honestly. So here we are, in Spring! It’s been a very interesting month.

Our youngest is about to turn a month old on the 30th. Yep, she’s finally here. I can’t believe it’s been a month already, but it has. She was born March 30th at 5:11pm 6 lb 15oz and 19.5″ long. She came naturally which was a first for me out of the 6. My water had broke at 7:50am while I was in the process of waiting at the preschool for them to open their doors at 8:00am. Needless to say, I’ve never had my water break before on it it’s own, so I was a bit excited and nervous and kind of scared. I had no contractions so I just waited those 12 minutes patiently while calling to make arrangements with my mother and to let my husband know (at work) that it was time to go to the hospital. 9 hours later and voila, beautiful baby girl! I’m breastfeeding of course, as I’ve done with all my others. Everyone adores her and all the children are very happy to have a new baby sister, for now at least, ha.

My oldest, the 5th grade homeschooler, is about to be finishing up her course work. Can you believe it!? It was a 36 week course that we’re about to be finishing up in the next 2 weeks. It was definitely a very trying experience and one I’m not likely to repeat with any of the children. It could just be the attitudes, the lack of her motivation and willingness to learn and comprehend. I’m probably just not the best “teacher” for her as far as standard curriculum goes. I did my best, we did our best and we made it through it, but we’re looking forward to starting back to public school in the fall.

My 8 year old son with ADHD has excelled in school tremendously since being medicated in November 2016. He’s gotten A’s & B’s in his 2nd, 3rd and going on 4th quarter report. He’s even scored well on the NNAT2 test that he has been invited to join a group called Talented Development where he will be working with an Academically Gifted Resource Specialist once a week in a group of similar students for the remainder of the year. In the following school year he could be working with AG kids/courses as long as he maintains a 3.0 GPA. We’re very proud of him and his achievements.

My 5 year old son is going in for his ADHD evaluation next month. He has been giving his Kindergarten teacher and school staff gray hairs since the beginning, but there was nothing I could do since his pediatrician can’t or won’t diagnose under 6 years old. There were no other options for me with him until then, so you can see how starting school in August and not turning 6 until 6 days before school lets out has made this school year very difficult. Thankfully though considering he has demonstrated ALL the characteristics of his older brother before his diagnosis, that I’m confident that putting him on the same medication will result in the massive changes that his older brother went through and will make the next school year 100% better.

Cap & Gown pictures were yesterday for my preschooler. She has an exciting month coming up, turning 5 years old and graduating preschool. She’s had such an amazing school year and has gone above and beyond the expectations of learning for the whole year. Her report cards were magnificent and her behavior was excellent. Her teachers just adore her and I know she’s probably going to miss it very much but I’m hoping she’ll enjoy Kindergarten just as much.

My homebody for this last year is finally going to be starting preschool himself in the Fall. He’s looking forward to it. I just finished the last 2 forms yesterday when they called me in to confirm his placement in the 2017-18 school year. That will leave just me and the little miss at home for the next 4-5 years once they all start back to school, which is only a few months away. They let out May 26th and will be going right back probably the 2nd week of August.

So of course we didn’t want to be surprised and have been waiting quite a while to find out what our little one was going to be. Mainly so we could go ahead and shop and prepare a nursery and to stop the guilt of calling it an IT.

So what will it be?

I could hardly sleep the night before. I was so anxious about figuring it out.

We sat in the waiting room for a bit and I didn’t think at the time that they wouldn’t let my three year old go back until the end. Which made my husband have to sit out there with them until it was close to the end of the scan, which took 30+ minutes. I felt so much better now that we had the anatomy scan done and the baby is super healthy and doing great in development.

She waited to reveal the gender for when she went out and got them from the waiting room and brought them back. She did some searching and showed us on the monitor that it was a………..

So now we know that and our little one can now have a name and be called a she/her instead of an IT. She now evens us out. I currently have 2 girls and 3 boys. Now it will be 3 girls and 3 boys. With the step kids it totals 4 girls and 4 boys. Perfect.

I had a prenatal visit right after the ultrasound and they checked my weight and blood pressure and the baby’s heart rate, everything is great. The ultrasound says she weighs 11 ounces.

We’re half-way there which means 20 more weeks until our due date. We’re going to be decorating the girls room / nursery before the baby arrives. Now that we know she’s a girl we know what we need to buy for her that we didn’t have already. It’s a lot more peaceful in my mind knowing instead of the nagging mystery. The longest I ever went in my pregnancy without knowing was my 5th, I didn’t find out he was a boy until a month before he was born. And let me tell you, that was nerve racking.
