Beckett Anthony Allen is TWO

This sweet, fiesty, silly, stubborn boy, oh how I love him so...
Beckett turned two on Thanksgiving this year, one of many turkey day birthdays in sure. We celebrated his birthday the following Saturday and he had lots of friends and family attend.
Happy Birthday Big Boy!

Yummy banana cupcakes with chocolate ganache - so fancy!

Eatin some dip. This boy loves to dip!!

Lots of love for Beckett <3

Birthday boys special cake!

Little monkey enjoyed his banana cake!

At Beckett's 2 year appointment, he weighed 27.4 lbs and measured 34.75" tall (head circumference measured 49"). If you double his height, he's estimated to be 5' 9.5" when he's as an adult. Not short, but not tall. Still taller than his momma and daddy though!

I spoke with the doc about my concerns over his digestive issues and the horrible diarrhea he has. She did some blood work as well as had us do a urine and stool sample...that was fun with a 2 yo. Especially since you can't collect the stool after it's been in his diaper. We finally got all the samples in and everything came back normal except he has low iron. She put him on an iron supplement which has only made his stools worse ;/ I won't be giving up though. Gonna try some TummyGize essential oils and a kids probiotic. We've cut out milk and juice which has helped but he still had spells of very watery diarrhea. To be continued.

Other than that, Beckett is a fiesty, fit throwin, silly two year old that makes me laugh and smile every day (when I don't want to throw him in the dumpster for the trash man to come get him - ha!). He's getting such a funny little personality. Is stubborn as all get out. Loves to play with his big brother, building blocks, or throw a ball and play catch, climbing up the bathroom counters to eat your toddler toothpaste, and coloring on Mimi's walls. He's a very sweet big brother most of the time and only occasionally tries to ride Hudson like a horse or roll around on top of him. Usually he just lays next to him and talks to him or gives him sweet forehead kisses. He's still a mommas boy but momma is quickly being replaced by Mimi or sometimes even Popo! He sure loves his Mimi...

He's officially started big boy pre-school with Brazos and seems to finally be settling in and likes his teacher.

My sweet, fiesty little Becktoni! I can't believe you are two already. I love you so much my middle baby boy and I can't imagine life without you and your fiery temper and sweet cuddles. My sour patch boy, my little teaser, my big little man...we love you so. <3

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…
