The World of Nicklas

Monday, March 30, 2015

Nicklas is 2 1/2 now and does the funniest things.
He has a mind of his own and also has is own little language.

Here are some examples:
Dinasie = Dinosaur
Watie = water
eat/bite = I want a cookie

Me: "Nick did you go poo poo"
Nick: "No.... Ok"

As we go outside to get in our car to leave, Nicklas begins crying "monster truck" which means he wants to ride in boy Jamie's truck... not my cool mommy SUV.   I go to place him in my SUV and a full blown tantrum begins!

Nicklas can count to 20, but skips eighteen every single time.

He knows all of his colors and animal noises.

He has an obsession with monster trucks and race cars and loves to watch them on youtube.  He then plays monster truck rally.  He will wreck and flip his cars and monster trucks and say 'woah woah woah' then clap!


A few nights ago I decided it was time to clean out nicks closet.  I was making him try on some shorts, jeans, khakis, and shoes. I was hanging and putting stuff up and turned around and he was gone.  I found him in his chair, in his diaper, mismatched shoes, watching his favorite show.  I guess we were done....

 I think he knows he is good looking.  I said lets take a picture and he smirked at me... really... are you 16?!  I can't handle it!

 Jamie was laying on the couch the other night and Nicklas brought him this book and started reading it to him!  He would say 'huff and puff and blow" and then he would blow at the book!  Smart kid... even though thats not at all what the book was about!

Nicklas has really started to like super heroes, especially The Flash.  I had my computer out the other day and he started pointing at it and saying 'the flash.'  I got on youtube and found The Flash cartoon from the 1960's.  Nicklas loves it!!  It is the cheesiest cartoon I have ever seen but at least the language is better than most shows that are on TV today!




After Nicklas gets home from school he prefers to be left alone.  I am SO like this!!  He will have a snack and sit at this table and watch Blaze!  This actually works well for me... I can prepare dinner and get some things done.  After dinner he is ready to snuggle and play with me and boy Jamie!

Nicklas woke up with the dreaded stomach bug one day last week.  Poor thing was miserable.  

Friday mornings are my favorite.  I have Fridays off so Nicklas and I can lay in bed and snuggle all morning long.  I cherish it!


Nicklas has finally figured out how to rub my back!!!!! I am so, so excited about this.  I mean... I did carry him around for 10 months... the least he can do is rub my back from time to time!! :)

Nicklas has started wanting to wear hats and he looks so cute in them!

I'll pretty much do anything to entertain him so that I can get some things done!!  Hey... you can only run around in these glasses and look cute for so long!

After a long week... there is nothing better than laying down and watching some NASCAR!!









Brooklyn Turns 4

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

On Saturday we all put on our best cowboy/cowgirl attire (who am I kidding... I wore my converses) and headed to Brooklyn's 4th birthday party!!


Kellyn, Ganna and Grandaddy did a great job of planning this party.  When we first arrived we got to paint horseshoes.  All the other kids in attendance loved it... Nicklas only participated in this activity for 4.5 seconds before heading back out to the pasture and whistling for the horsies to come here so he could attempt to feed them grass!  BUT, doesn't he look cute with his hat turned backwards. 



 They brought out the pony for all the kids to help brush and get ready to ride.  All the other kids loved that.  Not my kid.  He wanted to pet and feed the big horses.


Poor kid really hated that pony.  He wanted the big horses!


 But isn't he cute!  And I totally look like I belong in some horse stables....

Nicklas finally got his turn to ride the horses.  He handled it like a pro.  I couldn't believe how good he did!!  




After horse riding it was time to eat. 

Although my kid looks like he is dipping and has a beer gut in the picture I can promise you it is only goldfish and punch!

Nicklas made fast friends with another party goer who liked to feed him dip.  I mean, I like when people feed me too so I understood his love for this child! :)

Brooklyns boyfriend Hunter was in attendance.  I mean... Can't you just feel the love!

 Nicklas had to get a sweet birthday hug from his favorite cousin also.  We usually make them do this after one of them hits the other in the face... they were probably confused!

 When we first got the the party the horses were all standing near the fence... I'm not sure why they moved to the other side of the pasture.  

As the party was winding down my kid decided he needed some space... across the street... and close to the pasture... really?!


I think that Brooklyn had the best time at her party!

Brooklyn Nicole you make me so proud and I love you very, very much.
Happy 4th birthday princess cowgirl!








Ropazi

Monday, March 23, 2015

I am a mommy who loves fashion.
Have you ever checked out toddler boy clothes?
Not a lot of cute stuff out there!!

I stumbled upon a site one day with boy clothes that I LOVE!!

Ropazi is a husband and wife team, which I love, and they have the cutest clothes for boys and girls on their site.  They started their company because they were having trouble finding cute and unique clothes for their son. 
Their prices are very reasonable and they offer free shipping on all orders. 

I picked out some of my favs and since I have the cutest little niece I checked out some of their little girl clothes also!


I hope you all find things that you like and enjoy!!

Happy Thursday all.
It is rainy here and I am fighting to stay awake... I don't know why but rainy weather just makes me want to curl up and watch lifetime... I'm pretty sure my boss would disapprove.. oh well!

Nicklas had school pictures at school last week.  They had a little bunny for a 'prop' for the pics.  His teacher sent me the pic below.  He was so upset and wanted the bunny back!!

Last Thursday was Poppys birthday.  Nicklas enjoyed hanging out with grammie and poppy and watching Cars 2.

Great Grandma Pruitt even came to see Nicklas for Poppy's birthday!

We picked up a cake for Poppy so I got to light the candles.  We just go the number 55 because we didn't want to start a fire!! hehe!!  Although we did have a fire fighter there just in case... Love you Kevin.

Nicklas loves singing Happy Birthday and we sang it over and over and let Nicklas blow out the candle every time!  Seems like Kaylin and Kevin got tired of singing it over and over! ha!  Love you both!

All the kids got together and played Apples to Apples... I never won... and no I'm not bitter... everyone else just cheated.

And Grammie, Poppy and Nicklas played dress up!

We have started decorating for Easter at my house.  I couldn't believe I found this cute wreath at CVS for $10.  And if anyone wants to come clean my door let me know! bahah!

Nicklas celebrated his half birthday on Friday the 13th.  I can't believe my little monkey is 2 1/2!

Do any of you do Ipsy?  I just got my first months bag and look at all I got.  Love it!!  Hope its this exciting every month!

We have started to practice Easter egg hunting at my house.  I'm not competitive at all... YOUR GOING DOWN KELLYN AND BROOKLYN!!!!!


I woke up Sunday morning with my eye looking like this.  Guess I'm turning into a zombie.  I knew there must be a reason I am overly invested in The Walking Dead....

Nicks teacher sent me this pic earlier this week when Nicklas wouldn't nap.  The sweet little boy fell asleep while Nicklas was rubbing his back.  His teacher told me he was ready for a sibling.  I hope she means a four legging sibling....  This uterus is closed... forever!
