Who can forget this October favorite? :p

Who can forget this October favorite? :p


Warm Bodies.  We watched the movie and really liked the different spin on what could have been just another zombie film, so I added this book to my wish list and was pleasantly surprised when I got it as a gift for my birthday. The movie follows the book fairly well, I thought, so if you enjoyed the movie, you’d probably like the book as well as it gets into more detail and really is just a nice change from your average zombie story.  I’m personally not aware of any other books written from the perspective of a zombie.

I also just started reading ‘The Sleep Lady’s Good Night Sleep Tight: Gentle Proven Solutions to Help Your Child Sleep Well and Wake up Happy.’  I don’t know what exactly changed with the little man, but we need some new techniques.


Josh and I are still watching Fringe on Amazon Prime, but also started watching ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’. It’s pretty fun, if not a tad cheesy at times.  The cast is decent and it’s a decent show to watch. My favorite is definitely ‘The Neighbors,’ though.  Seriously awesome show.  We also started checking out the first season of ‘Duck Dynasty’ since that just became available on Prime.  Yeah, we’re late in the game again, and I’m on the fence as I am with most reality type shows.

As far as movies, we just watched ‘Iron Man 3’ and it was better than I thought it would be, though like most sequels there were a few things that were just “meh” for me.  We also recently watch ‘Epic’ and while it sort of felt a little like ‘Fern Gully’ the animation was so pretty, and you should watch it for that reason alone. It was definitely one I wouldn’t mind adding to the collection as I’m sure the kids will like it will one day.


Pretty much anything and everything, though my favorite thing to do is go to Dairy Queen for a blizzard and cheese curds.  Josh and I have gotten into the very bad habit of stopping there if Enzo happens to fall asleep in the car after errands on the weekend since we know if we go home and wake him up he’ll never go back to sleep and a nap will be ruined.  So we drive around eat ice cream and delicious cheese curds and explore back roads.


Fall.  While I wouldn’t mind if it was a tad warmer and less wet out, I love watching the colors change and I’m enjoying various pumpkin flavored yummies. It’s such a cozy time of year… if only I could convince Enzo that’s a good thing. He kind of hates mittens right now and they don’t have gloves small enough for his little hands that will keep them from getting wet.  Oh the frustrations of a young boy.

Thinking About

Baby Girl, of course. I can’t help, but wish a little that we were having her at home.  It’s something I had thought about even with Enzo, but we both decided that we’re so far from a hospital we didn’t want to take the risk of something going wrong.  Now that our impending due date is drawing near, I find myself wishing we were having the baby at home, though.  I like the idea of not leaving Enzo and of being able to curl up in my own bed right away afterwards.  It’s hard for me to feel super relaxed in a hospital type setting, and this will also be the first time we’ve been away from Enzo overnight.  Even more reason to make sure we get him back on track in terms of sleeping.  The kiddo has been having a hard time lately and has been waking up in the middle of the night and wanting to crawl into our bed. He was doing so good in his toddler bed, too!  I guess we have a few weeks to get him on track… 5 if she waits until her due date.

In the meantime, we’ve also made an appointment with an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist for him because he’s had several ear infections in the past couple of months and now that we look back, we think he’s had even more than we realized based on behavior.  We don’t want to rush into tubes, but if a doctor thinks that will help him out, we’d like to have it done sooner rather than later. The poor kid has been a lot more cranky than usual and then there’s the sleeping issue, plus the fact that if his health is at all hereditary – his mama was sick a lot as a kid.  I was on antibiotics a lot and had pretty awful tonsils that eventually got removed, which was the best thing ever for my health. I stopped getting ear infections and even the amount of colds and strep throat went down as well. While I don’t want Enzo to have to get tubes or anything like that, if we at least knew that something was physical was going on, we could fix it. I miss my happy baby who used to sleep so well.
