Hey! We made it to Friday! And my G baby is 14 weeks old today! His new trick is constantly having his tongue out and it is the most precious thing ever.

First off, I want to thank all you mommas out there who encouraged me when I vented about how dang tiring this mommy gig is. I truly appreciate it! And, I have good news to report! The moment that darn Wonder Weeks app said Graham was out of his 'leap', things improved. For the last few nights I have given him a big (6oz-7oz) bottle at 10pm and he has slept until 3:30am. At that time, Chris gets up and gives him a bottle while I pump. That has eliminated so. much. time. Once G goes back down, he sleeps another 3-4 hours. It has been a life saver!

I also went to the doctor and got a muscle relaxer. I grind my teeth at night and am a habitual jaw clencher and they think that is the cause of my terrible headaches.

In other news...if you're a SnapChat person, you can follow me @the.tuckers21. It is mostly snaps of G, so if looking at an adorable baby is your thing, I suggest you follow :)

I have talked about these shorts so many times and everyone seems to be following the trend. How could you not? They are so cheap and perfect for everyone. There are so many styles to choose from, but sizes are limited, so go fast!

Yesterday I followed the yearly recommendation and went to the dermatologist to get a full body check. I was worried about a couple spots, but she ended up taking a biopsy of a spot I had never even suspected! Your body and skin changes a lot once you have a baby, so go get checked, ladies!!

And I think that's all I've got for today. Tonight we are going to our friend's house for a catered dinner (what are we, the Real Housewives!? Ha!) and then we have a low key weekend planned. I'm hoping to knock out some organizing and relax with my little family.

Happy Friday!


  1. Yay on getting through the leap! Have a great weekend :)

  2. oooohh the leaps. yes! They get 'easier' but this one was most likely a loooong one:) You go this!

  3. Yea!! So glad things are better. I'm way too addicted to snap these days! :) And I'm like you..I seriously am always shocked at which moles my derm decides to remove compared to which ones I'm worried about. Have a super weekend!

  4. Glad things are better! Sometimes it feels never ending right?
