collectedblog I realized yesterday I never posted Posey's 7 month photo (and now she's almost 8 ). At seven months this girl is juuuuust starting to army crawl. She's officially on the move! I haven't posted about it too much, but I realized a few months ago that she was allergic to milk/soy. As long as I stay away from anything milk/soy related she is only waking once now! She smiles all the time but is pretty stingy with her laughs. She mainly laughs when you tickle her and every once in awhile you do something so good, she lets out a giggle. Sadly this month Arden called her Posey instead of Cozy for the first time. Luckily she still interchanges them. Posey tried a few new foods but made the worst faces for all of them...we'll keep trying! Posey makes us all so happy! #poseybeabymonth 1d

collectedblog Spent the weekend in LA with some of my favorite friends celebrating @thebeyoutybureau and @kngarupe's 30th birthdays. I slept through the night for the first time in 8 months 🏼, ate everything yummy I've been avoiding for months (🏼 dairy) and laughed, talked and sang for hours (still working on our band name). I'm back where I belong with my babies but so thankful for the time I had to just be me. 2d

collectedblog When my Mom asked me what I wanted for this past Christmas I told her SANITY!! You know that meme that says "Hell hath no fury like a toddler who got a green cup but wanted an orange cup"? That was my life, 3 meals a day x 3 kids. I was spending so much energy thwarting those requests!

So when I found an all white set from @replayrecycled I had my Mom order them for me. And it's been one of the best decisions I've made! I love the quality and the design of them plus they're made from recycled milk jugs. 🌎 They have the prettiest colors if white isn't your jam (I ended up ordering the sippy cups in color because they were too pretty to pass up and we don't use them for meal time). The kids haven't said a thing since we got them and while I may not be *completely* sane, I have definitely eliminated that stress! 🙃 I emailed @replayrecycled because I want you to have these in your life. If you enter the code COLLECTED you can get 15% off your order! May you too have happier meal times! 🍽

collectedblog Everyone was playing outside and Arden ran inside. She was in there awhile so I thought I should check on her. Annnnnd I found her on the top of her stairs asleep, with her dog and blanket by her side. 😇 She sure gives me a run for my money but she makes up for it with cuteness. 1mon

collectedblog Happy 6 months to this chub! She gives the biggest open mouth smiles, as pictured. She loves to grab her feet, chew on her fingers and roll/wiggle/spin to get a toy she wants. She's content to sit and watch her crazy siblings run around for what seems like forever. She's just easy going and along for the ride, probably because she has to be #4thbabyproblems. She's still everyone's favorite and yes, Arden still thinks her name is Cozy Beep...hasn't called her Posey once in all 6 months. She's so yummy and so worth the lack of sleep 🙃. #poseybeabymonth 1mon

collectedblog Collier takes his big brother job quite seriously. He wants to see Posey all the time. I HAVE to put her right at his level if I'm holding her so he can give her a proper hug. My favorite is how he says her name over and over, going up an octave each time. 2mon
