8 months!

This little guy is 8 months old. He is getting so big! He is rolling everywhere, loving the sound of his screaming voice and is such a happy baby. He is so sweet and so much fun! He likes playing with his toys in his crib, watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and eating {if you cant tell} Remember the baby food I slaved over for him? I tried to feed it to him and he started gagging... seriously? If it wasn't the funniest thing I had seen I wouldve been mad, but it was funny.

Day 2, 3, and 4 and some other stuff

So day 2 and 3 of no TV were pretty successful..
On Tuesday I accomplished a lot {can't really remember what exactly?}
Over the past couple months I have been obsessed with making these flowers.
thought I had this genius idea of doing interchangeable flowers on headbands but a couple days ago I found out I was wrong..
But I decided not to be discouraged. So Ive been making flowers and headbands like a mad woman. So look.. you can wear the same headband like this.. {sorry for the bad pics}or this..
or this..or this..
or this..
or this..
or this..
or this..
The flowers are all separate so you can mix and match whatever you want!
{let me know if you'd like one}

I've also been wanting to make Nash home-made baby food and I did it today!
It was quite a mess but it was all worth it when I open my fridge and see
those bright colored jars lined up in my very dirty fridge.
I also took Mr. Nash for a walk.
It was gorgeous outside today!

He has been extra grouchy lately and I'm pretty sure he is teething.
He is rolling everywhere. I turn my back and he is on the other side of the floor.
He is so freakin cute. He is babbling and does this crazy growl sound.
He copies Trent whenever he does it and its the cutest thing I've ever seen.
He is finally sitting up all by himself, too.

Oh I just love love love him.
There is nothing better than waking up in the morning to the sound of him babbling away in his crib.
There is nothing better than seeing his huge, gummy smile.
There is nothing better than kissing on his yummy cheeks.

Have I already said
i♥ him. cuz i do.


Day One and a wedding

Day one of no television was pretty uneventful! I woke up at the crack of dawn to go work out. {I have a love/hate relationship with working out at 7am 3 days a week} I got home and got ready for the day, started laundry, did the dishes, made crepes, and cuddled on Nash all before 11:00am! {that's already an accomplishment} We are house hunting right now so we went out to Queen Creek to look at a home. Then we headed over to my in-laws house. I spent the evening over there chatting with my cute SIL's and MIL. We watched a movie {movies aren't part of the diet} and had a great time. I came home, folded laundry, and went to bed before 11:00pm! {that never happens but it might've been because a had a nasty earache too} But all in all it was a successful day..

Sorry this is so boring. I just need to remind myself what I get done during the day.

Here is something a little more exciting.. Maybe.

This weekend we got to take part in an amazing wedding. I was a bridesmaid and Trent was a groomsman for our good friends, Jake and Kendal, who finally tied the knot after 3 years!

Nash was so cute and so good!

I love this chunky monkey!

Trent was lookin' pretty good in his suit ♥

All of the festivities were gorgeous and so much fun! Congratulations J & K!

The Week of No TV..

{picture has nothing to do with the post, except for me, trying to be a better mother.}
Hi my name is Charde' and I'm a television addict. Seriously. It was getting out of control. I had "my shows" on every single night.. sometimes 2 things recording at a time from 7:00-10:00. The Bachelor, One Tree Hill, Life Unexpected, Biggest Loser, 90210, Vampire Diaries, The Office, Greys Anatomy, The Real Housewives of OC... yeah.. the list goes on. I usually record my shows at night then watch them all the next day. Pathetic. I know. So when the Ensign came out this month, I was drawn to an article titled "Digital Detachment and Personal Revelation". If you haven't read it, it is a must. I thought about how my TV addiction has interfered with the things that I want to do with my life. For the past 2 years, I have wanted to start an etsy shop with my baby onesies, jewelry and headbands. Why haven't I done this?? 1-I'm a procrastinator 2-I'm scared of failing and 3-I fill my days with TV when I'm not playing/taking care of Nash. I also want to start playing the piano again. Music was my biggest passion and I've somehow forgotten that. Instead of spending time practicing something I love, I have let the TV consume me. For the past couple years, every night before I go to bed I always think "I could've been so much more productive today."

I don't want to live my life like that anymore. I want to be able to hear the whisperings of the Spirit in my life and I know that when the TV is constantly on that is not possible. I want my home to be filled with music and fun games. I want to be a mom that is creative and fun. I want to be a person that uses my talents and works to make them greater. I want to be a primary teacher that makes treats and takes them to her kids during the week. I want to be a friend that calls you just to see how you are doing. I want to be a wife that keep a tidy house, gets ready for the day and makes delicious meals EVERDAY. I want to bake more, read more, and go out to lunch with friends more.

So Ive decided to start a television diet. This week, I am not watching TV. I am not even recording my shows to watch them next week. I am going to be the person that I have always wanted to be and I realize the first step is taking TV out of my life. {The next step is cancelling my facebook.} I am excited to write about the things I am doing, learning, and accomplishing!!
