You use the farm as a bargaining tool all week. 65 degrees and mist. You can’t tell this face we aren’t going. 🚂🚜 (at Hill Ridge Farms)

Tap Tap, Is This Thing On??

Oh hi there. Betcha thought I’d forgotten how to post. It’s crazy how things are actually pretty busy with two little kiddos. More diapers and less blogging. Maybe I’ll change this ol’ blog’s name to that. Seems more fitting.

Since alls I seem to do these days is post pictures from my phone, I’ll give you a little brain dump of current happenings in the life of the Bittings, as well as what has me preoccupied:

  1. How is Carson already 6 months old? She’s the most laid back, easy going baby ever. Seriously. Everyone should have one. 
  2. Brady is LOVING preschool. Most days when Aaron or Kelley pick him up he can barely keep his eyes open in the car. Success! Keep up the good work, Jenffifore (Jennifer).
  3. This Ebola thing is startin’ to scare me a tad. I remain confident in American medicine; that we will be able to treat and mostly cure people in the US. But WHY are we sending Ft. Bragg troops over there?!? Seriously. How about the LAST thing we need is more people exposed to the disease and possibly bringing it home. It kinda burns my biscuit.
  4. Speaking of… Bitting Ebola 2014 swept through starting with Brady and finally ending 10 people/two weeks later. While Aaron was out of town. Even the baby got it. It was a blast. If I never relive a week like that again I’ll be ok with it.
  5. Does anyone really care that a) George Clooney is no longer a bachelor or b) that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis named their baby Wyatt? It’s a cute name! Moving along.. 
  6. I hired a cleaning lady. You know you’ve reached the point of busy, full-time working mom of 2 when your husband shows no contest to the idea of paying someone to clean your house. It’s only once a month but heck, that’s more than I’m currently doing. 
  7. Has anyone else noticed that no one is blogging anymore? Even the profesh, this is how I make my money bloggers are taking a break. This leaves me with no other choice while pumping at work but to shop online. WHICH IS A PROBLEM. I’m sure if I’d had a fun DIY project blog post to read I wouldn’t have purchased those personalized Easter baskets for Carson and Brady. Or decided to redo our master bedroom. Or gotten sucked into online deals at Old Navy. So if yall could get back to it, my wallet and my husband would be most appreciative. 

On that note, I’ll try to be better about posting. Even if it saves just one person from falling into the online sales trap.

Carson’s Newborn Pictures

I realized that I never posted Carson’s newborn pictures. Shame on me! Huge fail considering I have this beautiful, healthy baby girl and the greatest photographer EVER. So here they are. Swoon.

Looking at these photos make me want to cry for several reasons. 1) My baby girl is growing so fast. TOO fast. And 2) Because my beloved Rachel moved away. Her husband is going back to law school and they relocated to Saint Paul, MN. It’s so selfish because I want her HERE. With me always and forever, to capture my family all of our live-long days. And her son, Niko, is just the cutest darn thing everrr. Dramatic? Maybe, but waaaaah! Ok I’m done. All that to say you Saint Paulians are so lucky and you don’t even know it yet. You have a great girl, a great family and a fantastic photographer in your neighborhood - so don’t blow it.

Seriously, if you choose to freeze your who-who’s off and are in MN or surrounding areas, bring a bit of sunshine to your wintery days and call her. And then don’t tell me because I’ll be jealous.
