Graham || 12 Months

We are three weeks into having a one year old and it just keeps getting better and better, busier and busier! Graham is anything but calm and he keeps us on our toes. I wanted to make sure I documented all his stats before I forgot! I already don't do all the other 'mom' things, so I figured I'd better at least track his measurements!

Here we go!

Weight and height: 26 pounds (96%), 30 inches (56%)

Sleep:  G finally started sleeping through the night around 9 months. We are so happy to say that he is a great sleeper! 

Clothes: 18-24 months

Diaper Size: 5

Teeth: At one, he had two teeth. Now, as I write this, he has six. He has cut four top teeth in the last two weeks!

Health: Buddy boy ran his first high fever the week before he turned one. It was teething related, but at 102, he was pitiful. Although, nothing is better than a snuggly baby. At his one year appointment we found out he had a double ear infection, which was his first! He showed no signs, so I think we have a tough little man on our hands. 

Personality: He is a goof! He loves making people laugh and will keep doing whatever he is doing as long as you are happy. He is such a lover, too! He is not shy about just crawling over to anyone and laying his head in their lap. He loves giving sugars and hugs. Lately, he has been quite demanding and wants things when he wants them. He has no fear and is all boy as far as being rough and energetic.

Favorites: His favorite thing in the world is to go outside and look for planes. We live very close to a private airport and small planes fly overhead all day. We sit outside for 45 minutes or so everyday and watch the planes go by. He also loves his paci, stroller rides, being on a schedule, basketball, or any ball for that matter, the remote, and Bailey. He LOVES Bailey!

Food: He loves most everything we give him. He isn't a huge fan of many fruits, but we keep trying them and he is tolerating more and more. He finally likes milk! He also loves quesadillas, cheese, turkey deli meat, carrots, and bananas.


We can't believe you're one!! You make us so happy. We have thousands of pictures/videos of you that we can't stop looking at. 

You're such a lover and we pray you always stay this way. Everyone always comments on how happy you are and we couldn't agree more! You love other kids and adults. You love dogs and have no fear crawling up to anyone!

You're almost walking and took three small steps when your Mimi was here visiting. We bought you your first Nikes and Converse and they are so stinkin' precious!

Being your mom is the best thing that's ever happened to me and I can't wait to see what God has in store for you as your grow, G.

I love you so, so much!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I've blogged three times this week which I'd consider a win! My mom is coming to visit this weekend, so I'm looking forward to have an extra set of hands around the house to help wrangle a very active one year old!

We are planning on finally painting/decorating our guest bedroom, so be on the lookout for that on Instagram (@SarahTuckerUp). Other than house projects we plan on relaxing and enjoying this beautiful weather before it gets too hot!

Now for some Friday favorites!

1. This little (or big!) guy has been SO FUN lately. He is such a ham and definitely has his mom's love of talking. I always stack his blocks and he loves knocking them all over. He lets out the biggest giggle and it is the best sound ever.

2. I know I've been blowing up my blog with this tank, but they finally restocked the exact one I have, so go grab it while you can!

3. I bought this lash serum off Amazon. It used to be called something different a few years ago. I used it when it was that brand and it worked SO good. I'm on my second week of using this stuff and I can already tell a slight difference! I'd be totally lying if I said it doesn't cause some mild eye irritation, but I wear contacts and it isn't bad. If I feel like my eyes need a break, I just switch to every other day. I'll keep you posted!

4. I'm obsessed with this whole page and I want it all!

5. I ordered these cutout booties because they were on major sale! I know it isn't bootie season anymore, but I can't wait to wear them next fall!

Happy Friday!!

WIWW: Cactus + Link Up

Do you ever have those outfits that you know you're going to repeat over and over? This is mine. As long as I can wiggle into these jeans. #prebabyjeans

I wore this to church on Easter Sunday and, honestly, I felt a little too casual, but I couldn't stand the thought of blinding the congregation with my opaque legs in a dress. It's bad, y'all. To the point where I want zero sun exposure because I instantly feel like I might get third degree burns from .23 seconds of the sun beating down on me. 

Every blogger has this cactus tee, or this one, and while I was at 'ol Tarjay the other day, I decided it was time to hop on that bandwagon because $14.99 ain't gonna kill nobody. 

Also, these shoes feel like they've been worn in perfectly ever since the moment my foot slipped into them. How can one shoe can feel worn in without ever being worn? Mom clogs for lyfe (enter pound emoji).

Okay, clearly I'm losing my mind. I've included hashtags and fake emojis in this post, so I'm leaving it at that before I embarrass myself further. You're WELCOME. 

Happy Wednesday, compadres! And, thanks for linking up! Honestly, I don't have much time to comment on blogs, but please know that my lunch time is always spent reading y'alls posts!! 

Now for the link up!

- All I ask is you link back to my blog and link to a specific post.

- Write about something fashion related!

- Instagram @SarahTuckerUp for more outfits and randoms!

Weekend Wrap + A Cute Top

tank // vest // jeans // clogs

Happy Monday! I'm writing to you today from my cozy couch while I sip coffee and watch GMA. 

Just kidding. I'm drinking cold coffee, catching glimpses of GMA, and chasing a very active one year old!

We got today off from school. Praise the Lord! This four day weekend has been glorious. It is giving me hope that I can make it to summer :)

We spent tons of time outside enjoying the mild temps before we start melting here pretty soon. Graham is obsessed with anything outside. He will happily play on the patio for an hour with no toys. He collects leaves and grass and plays in the dirt. He is all boy! 

We went to Eater service Saturday night which meant we had all day Sunday to get. stuff. done. We did lots of yard work, Chris built a shed, Graham napped for 2+ hours, and I washed both dogs. We had such a productive day!

Today is the last day of my break and I've left my whole to-do list for today. Yay for procrastination.

Off to be semi-productive. 

Have a great day!

Friday Confessions + Shopbop Sales Faves!

We've got a four day weekend and I wish you could see me jumping for joy! This time of year is so stressful for teachers. State testing, end of the year obligations, hormonal 5th graders, etc. This break is welcomed with open arms!

What I'm buying: I always love, love, love the Shopbop sale! I'm getting better at buying gifts year-around, so I do a lot of my Christmas shopping now. I also buy a few things for myself, but I try to stick to buying for others!

What I'm obsessing over: Has anyone ever seen Amazon's interesting finds page? I AM OBSESSED!

What I'm wearing: My favorite peplum tops are on sale for $9!! I have five of them and they are on repeat. They come in a long sleeve and tank version.

What I'm planning: My brother and his wife are moving in with us over the summer (temporarily), so I'm itching to get our guest room decorated! It has been the most neglected room in our house and it is about time it gets completed. I'm dying to paint a room navy, but also want more shiplap! Decisions, decisions!

What we are watching: Over the last few weeks of me working on my signs, Chris has had Designated Survivor on in the background. I dismissed it at first, but now I am HOOKED. It is so good and totally out of my normal reality-tv comfort zone.

What we are looking forward to: Summer! We are in the midst of planning some summer vacations and I am so excited! Summer will be so different this year because, hello, G will be keeping me on my toes! I see the pool and lots of splash pads in our future!

What we are doing this weekend: Celebrating Easter and Jesus!

Happy weekend!
