Now it is time to have some fun! I recently joined D-Listed Mom Blogs. It is “a place for lesser known Mom Bloggers to unite and support one another.” There are 5 featured blogs each day. I was featured last week! I have found a lot of great ladies over there already, and I look forward to meeting more. This week is the D-Listed Blog Party! So if you’re not already on the D-List, get over there and link up!
My name is LeeAnn. In April of 2007 I married Brian, who has been the love of my life since 1999. Shortly after we got back from our awesome honeymoon in Costa Rica, we discovered that I was pregnant. We are pretty sure that Rylie is our “wedding night baby”. We had planned to have kids, but I was diagnosed with PCOS years ago and thought I would need medical help to get pregnant, so we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the + sign. Rylie was born in January of 2008, and the day before her first birthday we found out that I was pregnant with Bryce. The last three years have been a whirlwind, and we are loving every minute of it! We are having so much fun figuring this parenting stuff out.
We live outside of Orlando, and along with two kids we have two golden retrievers and two cats. I am an accountant and Brian is a software developer. We both work full time, so Rylie and Bryce go to daycare and it has been great for them for the most part. Our lives are pretty hectic and we are always running. I have gotten over a lot of my OCD in favor of fun weekends, so my house usually looks like a tornado came through it. Every room is a playroom and right now I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Rylie is almost 2 ½ and is an energetic, spirited, smart, loveable, hilarious toddler. Oh, and she’s pretty darn gorgeous too. She makes us laugh on a daily basis, and amazes us with everything she learns. She loves to be outside and doesn’t like to sit still. Her favorite food is waffles with peanut butter and syrup. Her favorite color changes on a daily basis, but I think purple is the one she likes the most. She is “Miss Popularity” at school and is loved by everyone, but Mommy is her best friend (and always will be). The “terrible twos” haven’t been horrible for us, but she definitely has her moments.
Bryce is 8 months old. He is a sweet, loveable, laid-back little guy. He is always happy and smiling. The poor kid has been sick a lot since starting daycare, but even on his worst days, you really wouldn’t even know that there was anything wrong with him. He is just that good of a baby. He is a chunky little guy and his hair is always sticking out in multiple directions, and I think he is adorable. He loves to eat and there isn’t anything he doesn’t like. He likes to cuddle and be tickled, and he even loves my singing!
As you can imagine, there are plenty of days when I want to pull my hair out. Having one kid isn’t easy, and having a toddler and a baby at the same time is definitely challenging. But when those two little ones smile at me, all of the frustration goes away and I can’t imagine my life any other way!
Thanks again for visiting. I hope you’ll be back!
