ruthiehart1 I just love him and our wild Friday nights <3 2d
  •   oklauren I wish I could reply to this with a picture. Staring down at my belly thinking "I can still kind of see my feet" while eating a container of chocolate ice cream 😬 2d
  •   mallorieowens Ditto! House of Cards on Netflix over here. 2d
  •   alienalley We ordered pizza AND got sonic drinks to have with our House of Cards binge watch in bed lol we are party animals! 2d
  •   misseclaire Awww yeah...baby asleep by 7, Jammies on and stationed on the couch 2d
  •   katiegums In one week I'll be snuggling you! Sorry Jon! 2d
  •   ruthiehart1 @alienalley @misseclaire @mallorieowens @sarah.barras we played marbles and watched breaking bad (even though we've seen the whole series ha!) 2d

ruthiehart1 People can knock technology for toddlers all they want but thanks to so many awesome iPad games, Ford is a learning machine! #totalmompost #teamiPad #fordnehemiah 6d
  •   megma1717 Love that! All seth wants to do is hit the home button and the games go off haha! Maybe I'll have to try to teach him soon. 5d
  •   mamafoote529 Awesome!! Thanks @ruthiehart1 we just played for awhile and he's his mama-- gets frustrated when he gets it wrong and wants to be done ha ha we will have to keep practicing. This held his attention longer than the puzzles we have been doing that are the exact same thing lol 5d
  •   caritachen Totally agree! 5d
  •   stephcabbott @mamafoote529 we had the same problem! My girl is 15.5mo and she only now sort of "gets" the iPad. @ruthiehart1 when did ford begin to grasp this and is it worth the $20 (!!!) upgrade?? 5d
  •   mamafoote529 @stephcabbott my son is almost 21 months and he definitely didn't get the whole dragging concept and how to get it started but this was his first time really playing on the iPad. He seemed to lack the fine motor skills to drag it to where he wanted it to go and then got frustrated...so he mainly enjoyed dragging them off the screen and watching them bounce back ha ha 5d
  •   ruthiehart1 @mamafoote529 @stephcabbott my husband is very scientific brained and loves working on the iPad with Ford... Honestly I've only ever done it with him a few times but Jon and Ford play games a few times a week. He started really enjoying it around 16 months and getting the dragging and concept down right before 18 months. Ford is totally a little nerd and future engineer, he loves conceptual learning and figuring stuff out so this is right up his alley! He also has an oddly long attention span for his age haha. And I didn't do the upgrade 4d
  •   jwborm I definitely agree with you, modern technology when used the right way can be a great tool to help little ones learn and grow! 2d

  •   everyday_mommy @ruthiehart1 how do you get him to sit longer than 5 minutes? 1w
  •   ruthiehart1 @everyday_mommy haha he actually has a long attention span for his age... He loves drawing and coloring and chalk 1w
  •   happinessblog3 @ruthiehart1 you can only get the amber necklace online, right? Where did you get Ford's? I'm going to send you an email also! 1w
  •   ruthiehart1 @happinessblog3 actually a few stores in Austin sell them but I got ours from the art of the cure on Amazon... Check my blog on Tuesday im posting about the necklace and giving one away! 1w
  •   brittnier2012 How old was ford when you started the amber necklace? My daughter is 3 months but I want her to have it! 6d
  •   ruthiehart1 @brittnier2012 right at three months! Check my blog today… I did a whole post on Baltic amber necklaces and giveaway! 6d
  •   brittnier2012 Awe man! I'm sorry I missed that :( I'm really wanting Paislee to have one before she begins to teeth! We use young living oils as well for many things I'd rather use natural remedies over anything! 6d
  •   sweettoothcourt Haha if I attempted this with Lucas, I'm pretty sure I'd wind up with a bowl of water all over the table and floor 5d

ruthiehart1 Ford's new favorite pastime is playing in Papa's truck. He could stay in there for an hour and has the time of his life, "vroom vroom". A car guy just like his daddy #fordnehemiah 2w
  •   tomifanning I facetimed him while he was doing this and I said, "whose truck are you in?" And with the biggest grin on his face he yelled: "PAAPAAAAAAAA". I love both these boys! 2w
  •   ruthiehart1 @tomifanning you should have seen him when we got home and he saw bug... "BUG!" And ran into his arms with a huge smile 2w
  •   tomifanning @ruthiehart1 AWE! Now I know Ford is just mad at me for being gone and that's why he won't say Tomi 2w
  •   jennathewife Davis' too!! These boys & their love of trucks & grandpas!! 2w

ruthiehart1 Nursery progress, slowly but surely! The 3 small prints are made by my super talented friend @nicolejoelle who is offering buy 1 get 1 free on her prints using the code "bogo1"! Her prints are happy + inspirational and a steal of a deal! Once we actually finish the nursery you'll see more of Nicole's prints on the walls! (And the adorable hoop art is handmade by @amykavs ) 2w

ruthiehart1 18 month well check this morning, Ford casually grabbed the step stool from the opposite corner of the room and brought it over to our Doctor and asked for her "yight" (light). Quite the little problem solver these days. He's a whopping 27lb12oz and 33in tall. Time should definitely slow down. #fordnehemiah 2w
  •   alexismilneck We used to see Dr. Willis! She was great! Our insurance changed though so now we are somewhere else. 2w
  •   laurel_acosta The leggies !!! 2w
  •   katylukes He looks very lean, I'm surprised by his weight! 2w

ruthiehart1 While mommy and daddy vacationed, Ford had an adventure of his own. He went to his first high school lacrosse tournament for Uncle James and I'm pretty sure it was his heaven. To say this boy is adored by many is an understatement! 2w

ruthiehart1 One of my favorite things about coming home from vacation is checking the mail... nerd alert. Arrived home from our baby moon to find lots of goodies for Lucy! Bandana bib and paci clip from @shopalexandally, Baltic Amber teething necklace from #tooglibaby, and her coming home outfit from @babybeauandbelle. Now to wait 6 more hours to see my baby boy! 2w

ruthiehart1 And all along we thought Lucy would be a little peanut. Wrong-o! Our chunky girl is measuring in the 83rd % with a 97th % head like her brother (thank God for c sections). I may have shed a tear when I found out yesterday I have gestational diabetes again but I can't wait to snuggle another big ole baby! #28weeks 3w
  •   brittnier2012 I had pre eclampsia and GD with my daughter (she ended up coming a month early and weight 4 lbs 13 oz) it's no fun at all! You look so cute though!!! 3w
  •   ruth.robertson So glad you made it to 28 weeks! I had gestational diabetes with my last baby and definitely cried about it! 3w
  •   jdaughtry Hang in there. It's all so worth it! 3w
  •   amykavs Between you and @oklauren ...cutest bumps everrrr! 2w
  •   ruthiehart1 @amykavs I think my belly is 100x bigger than @oklauren skinny body!! I don't believe there's a baby in there 2w
  •   oklauren @amykavs @ruthiehart1 oh ladies just you wait. My baby bellies are like the grand finale of a fireworks show... Slow and then BOOM BLAST WOWZA #itscoming 2w
  •   ruthiehart1 @oklauren I just showed Jon your bump and he guessed 8 weeks... Yes so I am a giant whale! Ha! You look amazing (just not 5 months prego!) 2w
  •   oklauren Well tell Jon he made my day because MY Jon last night said "so what are you now, 7 months?". Never mind he knows my due date 2w
