Zoey 4 months

Little Miss Zoey
She is 4 months old,
She has the sweetest little giggle and smile that melts all of our hearts.
She has become very vocal and loud when she wants to be.
She loves biting on her fingers, still won't take pacis and slobbers like crazy.
She's grabbing things, holding our hands, "strokes" my chest while I'm feeding, finally started laying her head on our chest when we are holding her.
She's following people with her eyes and just taking everything in!
She has started looking less like Lexi's old baby pictures.. they are definitely their own person! However their hair is seeming to be the exact same so I can only assume Zoey's hair will start lightening up over the next 6 months.

We have been going to the Chiropractor for the last couple of weeks because she has always (since birth) favored looking to one side.. at her 1 month appointment the doctor noticed it and then by 2 months it seemed to stay the same so she mentioned if it wasn't looking better by 4 months then we would probably need to look into physical therapy and possibly helmet in the far future.. a couple of weeks ago I kept noticing things weren't getting any better and her flat spot on the side of her head seemed to be getting more significant. I happened to be talking to one of my friends and she mentioned that her husbands chiropractic office saw babies all the time for that and that it is a much more gentle approach than physical therapy so I started with that shortly after talking with her and I have seen so much more improvement on her neck movement in both sides. Her head is still a little misshaped but we are working on it :)

Today we went to her 4 month appointment,
She weighs: 12lbs 7ounces
Height: 24.3 "
Head: 15.3

House to Home Plans + my NFM Wishlist

Ever since we laid eyes on our house I started dreaming up ideas on how I want it to eventually look! It will all take time... and money.
But I figured for the first time in my life I want to take my time and really purchase items I know will be timeless. Not just items that come in a box and leave you with hours of assembly.. We have went through plenty of those purchases over the past 8 years.

Now that we have a home to call our own. I plan on making it reflect our style and personalities. My husband immediately called the Theater Room as his own space. I am more than happy to give him his own room but I have a slight problem not having any say in the decor and look of the room.. so I went ahead and made a mood board that I thought would be the perfect look for a theater room! I'm crushing hard on Industrial design these days and I think it is more than fitting for a Theater Room!!

Wall Lantern | Pillows: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6
Metal Baskets | Couch | Chalkboard | Rug | End Table

Can you believe all of these items came from one store? It's like a one-stop shop! If you want to see more items I fell in love with you can check out my NFM Pinterest Board.

We have passed the new Nebraska Furniture Mart (
a massive project that has been under construction off of the 121 in the Dallas area) more times than I can count and we have been so excited for it to finally be open! 
If you watch the video below, you will see just how huge this store is! 
It is seriously a home owners dream place to shop. It is Nebraska Furniture Mart's fourth location to open and they literally took the idea of "everything is bigger in Texas" to a whole new level!

snowed in with family in town

My sister and her kids drove down from Colorado,
and my parents came in for the weekend..
and go figure it was the only week we had
below freezing temperatures and snow
on the ground the entire time!

We were so happy they came anyways and had fun just laying low
staying cooped up in the house..
it's kinda easier that way anyways with two little ones!
The adults tried to play mexican dominoes one night
after the kids were suppose to be asleep
but somehow they all ended up (minus zoey) back
in the kitchen table with us sitting on available laps

My sister is about to move even farther away (to Portland) and having another baby
so her traveling is going to get pretty limited for the next while
so we were trying to take advantage of getting all together before she is due!

They all travel back home today and we sure are going to miss them!!

these two seriously had the best time together!

what would they do without netflix and stealing our cell phones?
(mines propped up on the right side of the pic)

my parents with the kids
carter will have a brother in may
so he won't be totally ruled out by girls!

sleep overs -- they convinced mimi to sleep in there with them every night!
my moms a good sport!

snow day

I figured I needed to document our 3 days ice/snow days
Monday and Tuesday schools were canceled here in Texas
and today there were some delays
We had a good snow fall this morning
and 90% of it is melted already!

We had about 4 different outfit changes yesterday because she kept going outside
& coming back in to warm up and she would be soaking wet..
I don't know if it's the age or what but she is pretty was pretty excited to play in the snow
and stayed content out there all by herself! She also made her first snowman

best of both worlds

We kinda have fallen in love with our new neighborhood!
Tyson gets his country feel and I'm not too far from all the shopping
it took a while for Tyson to convince me to move away from where we lived..
but I'd say we did pretty good at getting best of both worlds.

stroller: baby jogger city select | car seat cover: covered goods

I might have a deep obsession with these truffle kisses.
like seriously, it's bad.
no lie they melt in your mouth
and goodness gracious I could probably
devour an entire bag in a couple of days!!
