15 Months and 5 Weeks!

Today Finn is 15 months old and I am five weeks pregnant!

I can't believe how fast the time has gone by with Finn. He is getting more independent everyday and getting into more things! He is constantly messing, pulling out stuff, eating paper, going places he is not supposed to, being sneaky, and trying to climb everything! He is also the sweetest little thing I have ever seen!

He loves to eat and drink juice boxes. I think he would sit and drink a juice box all day long. He loves to be able to do things on his own. Mr. Independent! He does not like the potty! I will sit him on it and he jumps up quicker then I can say "sit on the potty". I guess he will do it when he's ready. He has started watching cartoons in the mornings and is glued to the TV.

He LOVES being outside. As soon as he hears our door open, he runs over and puts his arms up wanting me to take him outside. He is definitely ALL boy.
He has started lifting up the toilet seat and playing in the toilet. Yesterday he threw 2 whole rolls of toliet paper in the toilet! He also pitches fits when he doesn't get his way or if you take something from him.

He can drive me NUTS sometimes, but as soon as I pick him up and hug on him I forget all about him making me nutty! 

 I love to sit and rock him when he is sleepy or just waking up. That's the only time he will sit still long enough to let me hug on him. I love when we read him books at night and he takes his fat hands and rubs them all over every page trying to feel what he sees. I love seeing how much Finn adores Jared. I love everything about him. I thank God everyday for giving me an adorable, sweet, and mischievous little boy. I don't know what's in our cards for this next baby but if he/she is anything like Finn I will be so happy!

 Nothing interesting on the pregnant side! Besides me eating everything in sight I am feeling the same as before! I have been so busy with my Thirty-One stuff I haven't been able to even think about anything else. Mindi and I went out shopping this morning and I got excited when I saw the baby stuff. I want to buy it something even though it doesn't need anything!
 If it is a girl Mindi has tons of stuff and if it's a boy I do!

I am looking forward to having NOTHING to do this weekend! I am going to rest and clean up around the house. I have been so tired lately I have been slacking in the cleaning department! I need to do a good spring cleaning! I also have lots of projects for Jared to do. I want him to start working on the basement so I can make Finn a playroom down there. All he is interested in right now is turkey hunting!

Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. I have been slacking too in the cleaning department. That's why I like it to rain sometimes. If its sunny I feel I should be outside! :>) Have a relaxing weekend!

  2. Happy 15 mths Finn and Happy 5 weeks to you Shelli! Oh girl when I was pregnant with Kelcee the first couple of months I was soooo tired I didn't wanna clean at all! Oh wait I still don't wanna clean LOL....I do but I have been slacking a little in that department! Ha!

    Good luck with all your 31 stuff and I hope you have a great weekend!

    Oh if you find a secret on how to get your hubs to make your downstairs into a play area let me know I have been trying to get Greg to since last winter ha! He says he is going to so we will see LOL

  3. Happy 15 and 5! How fun! Can't wait to read how you handle keeping up with a toddler while pregnant with #2...I may just learn a thing or two from ya! Happy Weekend!

  4. Patience, patience...that's what it takes with potty training. :) I'm glad everything's going well with the pregnancy so far!

  5. awww way fun! Finn is super cute and I am sure this new babe will be too! I know my two have totally different personalities but I just LOVE it! Carson is soooo quiet and Darby is so loud ; ). you are going to love having 2!
