Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

29 Jan

What a busy 2 weeks!

Lincoln’s first day of school (daycare)

First off, I went back to work. The first few days felt awkward but I am getting back into the swing of things. I work with some pretty awesome people!

Lincoln sent me flowers ❤ (well his awesome daddy did)

This crazy guy has some sweet dance moves

He must get it from Kyler

My sons Ammo, Hudson, Lincoln and Mr. Fen ❤

Hudson snuck in my bathroom while I was working and got into my face cream and make up… $$$ down the drain

Puppies at work. Look at her sweet face!

Kyler’s 5th birthday was on Thursday. I was able to make cupcake time at school and they let Hudson join in too.

More cupcakes that night!

Saturday morning we headed to Disney for a surprise breakfast with the princesses in Cinderella’s Castle

and more cupcakes

The breakfast was great and the kids loved it!!! We have never been in the castle before so it was pretty cool

After that, we went on a few rides and hit up the carousel with Lincoln

It was a cold and dreary day but the park was still packed

Today, we had a birthday party for Kyler at my parents. She had a mini petting zoo come by.

She loves goats right now

We had a pony, a mini horse, a sheep, a goat and a bunny

Kyler had a great day with her cousins. Her cousin Matt from New England is in town visiting which made it even more special.

My uncle from PA is also in town! Family affair!

Sunday night movie on the couch

Cousins!

Lincoln’s still partying

Love my boys ❤

Back to work tomorrow and ANOTHER birthday party next week for Kyler with all her friends. This girl is one special (spoiled) and loved little one!

Lincoln: Three Months / 13 Weeks

29 Jan

This past week, Lincoln turned 3 months / 13 weeks old. He is the happiest baby and smiles away. He is so sweet and I could just snuggle up with him all day long.He caught another cold so the poor guy has been super congested again. He isn’t sleeping through the night anymore but seems to wake up about once a night now. Once a night I can deal with. His eating habits are a little off right now. Sometimes he just won’t eat and will push it to 5 hours. Sometimes he prefers the bottle but this past week he would prefer to nurse which kind of sucks because I am back at work. Hopefully he will get over it soon and be okay with the bottle again… if not I may be searching for a new type of bottle! He will be 14 weeks tomorrow… time is flying by!

He is so peaceful ❤

Smiles for days

We visited our new friend Kate this week. She was 5 days old here 🙂

Lincoln and Kate ❤

Her first week of maternity leave and my last… too bad they didn’t overlap more!

Beautiful day so Lincoln and I went for a walk/jog

His face when he woke up from his nap haha

I think the pups are going to miss me too… although Princess Caya may not care…. head on pillow just like a person

We have kept up with the healthy eating and have found quite a few recipes we really like. Chris has already lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks and my old clothes are starting to fit again!

Bathtime for the boys

Getting our tummy time in

Don’t they look pretty? They tasted great too! BBQ Chicken Pizza Zucchini Boats

When Kyler was 3 we talked about getting her ears pierced when she turned 4. Well when she turned 4 she told me she wanted them when she was 5…. and now that her birthday is next week, it was time to get her ears pierced! She did AWESOME. She cried for a second but wasn’t too bad.

She picked out ladybugs of course!

Meanwhile, Hudson has been helping Chris build the new table.

We got some play time in this weekend with friends. These are some crazy kiddos!

Hudson and Lincoln ❤

Well, tomorrow I go back to work and have to leave this big guy at daycare. I have a lot of feelings about that and they aren’t the most positive but I know everything will be okay and he is in good hands… just got to rip the band aid off. You think this being my third maternity leave it would get easier but it doesn’t… in a way it’s much harder.

Lincoln: 12 Weeks

16 Jan

This smiley boy is 12 weeks old. He smiles ALL. THE. TIME. and I can’t get enough of it. When he smiles at my I stop what I am doing immediately and we just look at each other. He is just so happy and so stinkin cute. This is a big week for Lincoln (and Mom)…. he starts daycare tomorrow. I am sure he will be just fine but it’s going to be a tough one. Love you big guy!

Lincoln: 11 Weeks

10 Jan

11 Weeks! Lincoln is still fighting off a head cold but hoping he will be on the mend soon. He is acting find but he gets pretty congested and has a cough.

We went shopping and he is wearing a lot of 9 month clothes now. He is also waking up again to eat in the middle of the night. Thanks cold.

He LOVES to smile. And I LOVE to watch him smile. He really is the sweetest boy ❤

Lincoln: 10 Weeks

10 Jan

10 Weeks old and he caught his first cold 😦

We went to the doctors and he weighed 16 pounds and 4 ounces. He has been sleeping with the humidifier, vicks and on mom’s chest a lot.

He is still a smiley boy 🙂

Chris and I started working out and eating healthy in the new year. Egg muffins meal prep for Chris!

Just because

Spaghetti Squash with skinny chicken parm… so good!

Just building a table

Baby boy hasn’t been feeling well this week so we went to the doctor… just a head cold thankfully

The kids never get to go to a Magic game because I am always working so I figured we could go so I could help Chris with the kids. They loved it!

Lincoln’s first game!

Trying out my new Christmas gift

Saturday was a busy day….One of my favorites was in town so we met up at the Science Center for a little bit

One of my closest friends had her first sweet baby this past week and she couldn’t be more perfect!

Then I headed to another friend’s birthday dinner at Kobe. Just hanging with the girl Alexa!

Afterwards, we made a bonfire and stayed warm for a bit… it was freezing out!

Such a hunk ❤

Hudson has been a bit of a mad man these past few weeks… will not miss this stage

hey bud!

Kyler loves to take my phone and take pictures…I guess she was going for the artist sideways lounge shot?

Sundays are for meal prep now

$3 steal at Target and I’m in love ❤

I am in my last week of leave and I have such mixed emotions. Going to make the best of it!

Hello 2017

3 Jan

Before we say hello to 2017, let’s take a look at 2016. For the Jenkinsons, 2016 was a great year!

In January, Kyler turned 4

In February, we got a new couch

and found out we were pregnant

In March, Hudson turned 2

In April, we celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary by eating dinner at home and drinking sparkling grape juice

In May, I turned 30 and we went to the Keys to celebrate

We also announced that we were expecting Baby J #3

In June, tragedy struck our city

We hosted the victims, their families and the President and Vice President at the arena and while it was incredibly sad, it was one of the most impactful days of my career.

In July, I got a new car

In August, Kyler started VPK

and Chris turned 37

In September, Hudson was potty trained

and we celebrated Baby J’s upcoming arrival

In October, we had a hurricane

that thankfully moved east a bit so it wasn’t bad at all

Hudson bumped his chin and got 6 stitches

Kyler finished her 4th soccer season (and scored her first goal!)

Ammo gave a huge scare health wise but is stable now

and we finally met our baby BOY Lincoln!

In November, we hosted Thanksgiving

In December, we celebrated Christmas all month long

and Nana and P’Pa came to visit

As we look forward to 2017, I look forward to celebrating more birthdays, watching Lincoln grow and learn new things every day, getting back in shape and not being pregnant, doing some renovations on the house, and enjoying our new family of 5. Kyler will be starting kindergarten this year, Hudson will be a big 3 year old, we will celebrate Lincoln’s 1st birthday and my mom turns 60 this year. We also look forward to traveling again this year.

My hope is that we will be able to take in all the memories because time is flying by. Kyler, Hudson and Lincoln are the light of my eyes and I am so lucky to be their mom. I will continue to spend all of my free time and energy to making more memories, playing, laughing and enjoying them because I never want to take it for granted. While Chris and I may be exhausted, we would rather get out there and see life through their eyes. My goal for the next several years is to travel more with them. We love our family vacations and now that Lincoln is here (and we are done having kids) we will be able to start planning some fun places to visit. Hello 2017, can’t wait to see what you have in store for us!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

Christmas break was here which meant the kids stayed home from school for a bit.

Funny how much they all look a like

Sporting the blanket Nana made him

Hudson liked Lincoln’s hat too

Bed time books

This was at the beginning of the break when the kids loved each other

Go Pats!!

The weather has been warm enough that they went for a swim

It’s too cold for Lincoln and I so we just watched

Chris and I were able to sneak out one night to grab a drink. Freedom!

This poor guy got a cold on Christmas and has been fighting it ever since

“Mom, let’s take pictures”

She looks for one…

too busy to look for the other… oh to be a kid

New Year’s Eve came rolling around and we obviously didn’t do anything. I had yoga pants, no makeup, baggy shirt and got to rock my sweet boy and I was okay with that.

Toys, wine and a monitor… NYE mom style

After my in-laws left, there has been a lot of cleaning yet it is still a disaster…I do have 2 new helpers now in the shape of a disc.

We headed over to my parents on New Year’s Day for dinner. Tink loves Hud ❤

Meanwhile, Grandma scored these super cute MK boots for K for $22.

This pretty much sums up Christmas break. Exhausted and ready for 2017 to begin.

A Very Merry Christmas- 2016

2 Jan

We were so excited for Christmas to come!

We made lots of cookies

On Christmas Eve, Grandma and Poppa came over for dinner. After a ham dinner, we got into our Christmas pjs and drove around and looked at Christmas lights.

Poppa read them a Christmas book

Beamer enjoyed it 🙂

Hudson wanted to sleep in the dog cage instead.

The Drabyk and Jenkinson pups! The outnumber people 🙂 From left the right that is Beamer, Emmy, Tinker Bell, Ammo, Mia, Maggie, Caya and Wrigley

Cookies and milk were put out and gifts were left

Love their faces on Christmas morning

Santa brought them both a hatchimal

Lincoln’s first Christmas was spent like this ❤

The aftermath!

The kiddos got lots of fun toys to play with

Lincoln loves his new piano mat!

Yeah… Lincoln doesn’t really fit on Kyler, haha

On Christmas night, we headed over to my aunt’s house for a family dinner and gift exchange. The kiddos didn’t participate in the white elephant, however, Kyler helped Chris and I out. Towards the end, she said she wanted to go again and my aunt told her that her numbers were already picked and our turn was over. She left the room and came back with another number. Smart cookie went and made her own number so she could join in 🙂

My bestie was in town so we headed over to see her and her sweet little family the day after Christmas.

That night, Nana and P’pa arrived from Pennsylvania!

We redid Christmas morning with them on the 27th and the kids couldn’t have been happier to have them here for Christmas.

After gifts, breakfast and play time, we made a turkey dinner and went to Light Up UCF for some more ice skating fun.

She had a nice little wipeout but recovered well!

We capped the night off with a puppet show from the new puppet tent Nana and P’Pa got them for Christmas

On Thursday, we went over to the port to have lunch on the water.

It was a GREAT Christmas filled with lots of fun times with family! I hope everyone had a great holiday season!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from The Jenkinsons!
