{8.29.13} Currently

Lucas is currently LOVING bath time.  We’ve had a bath/bedtime routine since he was around 3 months old.  Now he knows that when Daddy brings him into the bathroom it’s time for a bath and his little face lights up.  He loves the water and his bath toys so much that he even managed to go from laying down to sitting up for the first time just so he could play with them!  Poor Darrin thought something was wrong when I started screaming for him to “Come quick and bring a camera!”


I am currently CLEANING as little as possible!  That’s kind of a lie, but my cleaning routine has certainly changed!  My house used to get a deep clean every weekend with light cleaning throughout the week.  Now I’m lucky if I can vacuum and wipe down the kitchen daily! I’m trying to clean one room a night after the little guy has gone to sleep but that means our bedroom hasn’t been cleaned in a while since that’s where he sleeps.  I really need to get a better routine down – especially considering I’m the girl who has the Martha Stewart Cleaning Guide laminated and hanging in the kitchen!

Lucas is currently WORKING on becoming mobile.  He’s scooting around like crazy but I’ve noticed, in the past few days, he’s starting to put more weight on his arms while on his tummy.  I’m really not ready for him to crawl yet and was hoping he’s be a little delayed with that milestone!  I guess I just need to roll with it and give him as much tummy time as he wants until he masters that skill.  Let the baby-proofing begin!

I am currently CREATING list after list after list of things I want to do with Lucas.  The Notes app on my phone is getting a little out of control!  I have Christmas traditions, Fall fun, Activities and Craft lists.  Pinterest has played a huge part in this – although I’m not that great at pinning things!  That said, now would be a great time to start following me on Pinterest.  I promise to get better at actually pinning things and not just looking at what everyone else pins!

Lucas is currently WATCHING everything his Mommy and Daddy do!  He has become so aware of where Darrin and I are at all times.  He is constantly watching us and what we are doing.  Because of this, I am trying to talk to him about every little thing I’m doing, no matter how miniscule it seems.  The phrases “Mommy is brushing her hair with a purple brush” and “Look, Mommy is putting chicken in the big black crock-pot” could definitely be heard in our house this week.

{8.22.13} CURRENTLY

Another blogger in a group I belong to shared this fun meme last week and I decided I wanted to play!  I’ve spent a fair amount of time stalking exploring the host and co-host’s blogs and they seem like really awesome ladies – I hope they don’t mind me joining in!

Lucas is currently FEELING excitement over playing with our dogs (or at least Mommy thinks he is!).  That little boy’s face lights up when the dogs come within 15 feet of him.  We’re trying to teach him how to pet them gently and our Beagle is definitely the most tolerant of the littlest Overholt’s ‘loving’ gestures.

Lucas is currently MISSING nap time!  He is such an amazing night sleeper (we get 10-11 consecutive hours each night) that I don’t want to do anything to mess that up but man are naps rough.  We’re lucky if we get 45 minutes two or three times a day.  This makes for a super cranky baby by 6 or 7 at night.  I even asked the pediatrician about it at our 6-month well visit and he said that it was fine and that some babies never nap. This mom is hoping the No Nap Club kicks my sweet boy out soon!

I am currently RUNNING through Trader Joe’s Barbeque chips like I’m pregnant again (I’m not – that’s how nasty rumors get started!).  The hubs makes predictions as to how long each bag will last.  My most recent victim – three days!  I am not proud of this fact but I’m telling myself it’s okay because I need the extra calories to feed L!

We are currently VISITING every home that is listed for sale in our price range!  With three dogs, two adults and one little boy with a lot of stuff we are looking for a bigger house.  The search is NOT going well!  I’m hoping I have some good news to share in the next few weeks because this is getting exhausting!

I am currently “COOKING” smoothies almost every morning.  I’ve become a bit obsessed with them actually.  I typically mix frozen berries, a banana, kale, a few tablespoons of greek yogurt, some OJ , a touch of agave, oatmeal and flax seed meal in the blender and enjoy!  The oatmeal and flax seed meal keep me super full – which is awesome with a baby that keeps me on the go constantly (see the MISSING category for the reason why!) and leaves little time for this momma to eat.
