she is sugar and spice and everything nice.

A Girl.
I was so scared to have three kids. We were living at my grandparents house because Garth was working in Texas. We did a lot of planning to move because I thought we would all move there while I was pregnant. Everything kept falling out of place. Every house I found something went wrong. The neighborhood was in a flood zone. There was a sex offender too close. OK! I was done. I had to stay in Utah. My hormones were crazy and I was in the worst mood of my life. I felt so weird and unhappy. Especially when I had to go to my ultrasound alone to find out what the baby was. So, I had the tech put the picture in a envelope and I was going to FaceTime Garth when he got home from work. I was already certain it was boy. We opened it together and it was a girl. A Girl. what in the world was I going to do with a girl. I was not happy. I felt bad all the time.

The Love Of My Life.
I was induced on a Tuesday night at 9. (like my previous baby before, stubborn) I had her on Thursday morning. but I felt like it was different and faster even though it was the same amount of time. Pushing was easier she was ready to come. We couldn't wait for her to come. Those big dark eyes staring back at us. Her sweet tiny cry. She was literally perfect. I was getting my tubes tied the next morning. I was a little scared. I just had our Girl. and I had to leave her to go get surgery. I had to be put under and it was only suppose to be a couple of hours but I guess I didn't wake up from anesethia until much later. { I do suggest tubal ligation after you are sure you are done with babies}We lots of visitors and this time around I didn't mind people coming and seeing her. With Collins I didn't want anyone to hold him or visit us. With Ruairi I wanted people to see her. Hold her. Visit us. Fuss over her.

Next Few Days At Home.
She was calm. She drank a bottle just fine. She was happy. I decided not to breastfeed her because I had just stopped breastfeeding Collins right before she was born. {22 months} it wasn't cheap but it helped so much. Three kids is a lot I did have a lot of help but it was still easier. so if you don't breastfeed don't feel bad. She is 9 months and she is so smart and has only been sick once. I see no difference in breastmilk and formula fed babies.

Nine Months Later.
don't worry she is literally clawing at the computer as I type this. She loves to help. she stands up against anything that will hold her. she talks and talks her favorite word MAMA. (yay) She loves to smile. which I love. smiling is the best accessory a girl can have. She eats anything and i mean anything. puppy food, paper, toys, baby food, goldfish crackers, cookies, ice cream, popsicles. And we gave her a sippy cup {win} she loves it. Collins went back and forth on a sippy cup. he still breastfed and had sippy/bottles. She sleeps in her own bed. {Collins did not ever do this and he still don't} She is so brave. She gets so excited when we see people she knows. She loves animals. Car rides are her favorite. She falls asleep every single time.

{ here is to 100 more years of raising a strong, independent, beautiful, happy girl.}

scott family of five.

yes, that's us the family waiting to be called for their reservation with way more kids than adults. haha that's what my cousin told me anyway. (side eye)

I had a sweet baby girl September 14th. well technically she is both of ours but I had her. we named her...... Ruairi (roar-ree) Linea after my Grandmas Moms Mom. she is sweet as pie and only cries to remind me she is hungry. she is the new stage of only wanting me to hold her while she sleeps but I've been strong and making her go in her bassinet. And its so much fun to get her dressed. nobody wants their baby to get bigger but her older girl clothes are to die for!! her brothers are taking her to her very well. it was hit and miss the first day with Collins because he has been the baby.

A few of my faveorite baby items this go around are: Blooming bath flower tub. I got mine from Kidizen its a app where people sale used or new baby things. I scored mine for $18 they are usually around $30. she loves it ive been putting her in the bathroom sink its a little crowded but she loves it she hasn't fussed yet.

Dr. browns bottles pink of course. we were using the ready to feed bottles and nipples but we needed to use our poweder formula so we switched her and she took right to them.

Milk Snob carseat cover. it stretches out over the carseat and has a hole on top where you can see baby as little and as much as you want.

Nylon and felt bows from Etsy. oh my heck I am in love they are so soft and cheap.

Dr. browns formula pitcher. you can make a pitcher of formula and keep it in the fridge and heat it as you go

the first years bottle warmer and cooler. simple and easy to use and heats fast. has a cooler on the back to keep bottles so you don't have to keep running to the fridge or sink.

Kidizen and Tot Spot. they are both apps. and they both are used and new clothes and everything kid and baby. the amount of baby gap clothes I have scored on there. yahoo!

this little peanut also turned 2 right before baby was born.

Diaper bag whore

The title is real. I love diaper bags. When I had Cooper 6 years ago (19) I thought for days about getting a juicy couture diaper bag. Than when I saw they were $200 I'm like no I'm too poor. Sad face! So I got I thirty-one bag like a tote open top with his name on it. Ok! So Unpractical haha. I lost everything! Well 2014 my sweet baby Seamus was born and I had gone to a cousins baby shower before I new I was pregnant. And she got a petunia pickle bottom boxy backpack omg that thing was amazing and cute!
It had two straps so you could wear it as a backpack. Handy as fuh! Because those straps always fall off your shoulder. It was square, nice fabric easy to clean. I switched only because it had no pockets well 4 small ones inside. Two bottles a place for the changing mat, and two for diapers and wipes. 
Than I saw on a cloth diaper exchange a jujube. Same thing backpack style, shorter, zipper pockets, many more. But it was pink cheap but pink. So I switched to a Vera Bradley convertible. I have it now, the backpack strap is rough not comfortable at all so I one shoulder strap it. It's cute has many functional pockets. But!!! I saw on Pinterest the cutest striped bag! Shoulder strap or arm, stroller straps, inside was magical! Click. Kate spade Stevie awwww it was beautiful but $350 blah. So I threw my dream away until... I remembered poshmark. And score for $75 all black. So excited to get it! 
Here is a picture of them all exact colors. Although the blue and black was pink. Don't buy them full price. eBay, poshmark, yard sales.

We are groovy

Life has been so weird. 
Garth went to Oklahoma in September and is now on his way home.. For Good! 
It was a bust, oil field is dragging whatevs
So,, he's in Texas finding a new job! He's such a hard worker he hates to sit around. I tried convincing him to do unemployment 😂 he was not having it! 
We are super close i feel like this is the most close we have ever been. Distance makes the heart grow fonder. Oh how that's true! I miss him like crazy. I was watching some tv show on Hulu and the husband and wife are getting their kids ready for vacation and i got so weepy. Hahaha
I was just like "uh what's wrong with me"
He'll be home soon and than hopefully we will be moving to where he found his job. 
Than we will be celebrating our very special baby boys 6th birthday! 😢 
Last year he had a great birthday. Huge minecraft party. But this year I think I'll rent the theatre and invite his friends from school. Grandmas house is just to crazy. And small. He wants a stampy cat cake it's a cat man from minecraft. The boy loves cats and minecraft. His new thing is paw patrol. His favorite music is 21 pilots. 
He loves cheese rolls and mini eggo chocolate chip pancakes. He's getting better at being patient with Collins. He's catching on to things at school, which he loves!! I love hearing his story's from his grand adventure at school. So much fun!!
Ok check this stud out! He's 1 going on 15. He's crazy smart! And such a little beast. He does everything and anything naughty. He has this high pitched scream he does under his paci. It's hilarious!!! He's such a blessing to our family, he makes everyone smile. I can't help but kiss those baby cheeks every damn day

vacay part 2

Disneyworld is so awesome. we learned a few things for when we go again. but it was really magical. we did Harry Potter world on Christmas. where I got YES a wand. Bellatrix Lastrange wand to be exact. Chocolate frogs and love potion.

There are a few things we didn't know about in advanced like the magic bands you use they are not like a debit card they are charging everything to your room and than at the end of your stay they take it all out at once. uhhh so we never kept tracked of what we spent because we figured it was just withdrawing from our account! we didn't go negative or not have enough we had saved over 4,000 so we could relax on this vacation without worrying about money. it was just a shock to see that in a week we had spent $914 in three parks. which was ok haha.

Pinterest was a bust I got all my info from there and yeah it sucked!!! no joke. I read on multi pages that it would rain and be freezing at night. well I checked the weather and there was chance of rain and lots of fog. so I packed one pair of shorts and the rest pants and one dress. BUST it was HOT HOT HOT. I loved our resort the Port Orleans Riverside. beautiful and covered in trees and swamps. its awesome. the housekeeping was amazing with all our messes. the only thing there was no microwave but in the lobby a 5 min walk from our room was a buffet type deal where you pick what you want from many windows. so that wasn't to bad but that got expensive. The taxi rides were expensive to. like $40 one way. we only needed one to Universal Studios but it was $80 and you need two days at universal one day is not enough.

On Christmas night we went to Disney Springs its a open to the public place with shopping and restaurants. its a bus or boat ride to your hotels. not like in Disney Land where its connected to Disney. But it had some way cute stores. We bought a buzz and woody from the toy store. Chocolate from Ghriedelli. Ate dinner at the TREX. the inside is loud and dark every so often the dinosaurs go off and growl. there is a ice age, volcano, and a aquarium. really neat. well garth had took Collins out so I could pay and when Coop and I were walking out people were screaming and running and crowding in I couldn't figure out what was going on. So I kept walking and Garth called me in such a panic he kept saying are you ok? where are you? I was like uh at the restaurant duh. He said that someone came running into the lego store saying there was a shooter and that everyone had to take cover in a back room. Here I am walking around I had no idea. so we met up and everyone was so scared that everyone started leaving. so the boats took off and we had to catch the bus. than cops and a helicopter came, after we got to our room we read about how it was a drunk fight and the guy had said I will shoot you. so they were arrested. It was like the dream you have but never thinking of it coming true. it was so scary after my adrenaline went down. My family could have actually been in a mass shooting. So we decided to have a day in the hotel and not leave our resort. plus you need one of those days anyway, just to relax and go swim and do laundry. yes do laundry hahaha it saves you lots of stress when you get home.

So yes go to Disneyworld its so amazing. Yes go to Universal Studios and spend all your money at harry potter world. relax and have a good time.

Vacay Update.

My family is sleeping, well my hubby and youngest are. Coop is just causing shenanigans all over the room. Swinging this freaking light sabor at everything.

Ok! We missed our first flight by 10 min literally it was scheduled to leave at 6:50. The hotel in Denver Told us the shuttle would take us to the airport at 5:30. Well.... There's my first mistake we should have left at 4:30. Alright, this is where I learned all the types of people in the world. We had to make a stop at a neighboring hotel, you had to sign the list to get on to assure you were on it. Well people started loading and more and more came on. So the driver said some have to get off if you aren't on the list. No one moved. Than these two girls with wet hair who had woken up late said they weren't leaving. He said fine but at least move so the older couple could sit down, they wouldn't. So on we went. Got to the airport our luggage was 3 lbs over so we had to pay $50. Security took an hour. Than Collins had a freaking mellllllt down. I'm juggling him a diaper bag and a stroller that would not fold up. So after buying new tickets 1,750 dollars later we caught a flight to charlotte (2 hours long) than hurried and fed the boys and back on a plane to Orlando. Poor Collins was so hungry for real food and a major wet diaper change. Plus the poor baby hadn't pooped all day. Check in was fast and it was dark so finding our room was cray! They are individual villas with 15 or so rooms per building and we were building 34! So off we went. But magic express would bring our luggage. A nice shower than some Cajun style dinner. Relaxing in our room. We are at the port Orleans riverside. It's beautiful!!! And reminds me so much of New Orleans. It's swampy and crickets  at night. And a lot of squirrels.

Today {Wednesday} we got a late start. We were tired. So we went to Hollywood studios. In my plan this wasn't something we wanted to do in a day we were going to break it up with Epcot. We went at 8 and we got done at 4. But we missed several things we wanted to do. The toy story mania, Star Wars, and Indiana jones these are movie type deals not the ride. We did go to Disney JR live. Ok it was cute!!! Collins loved seeing Mickey and Sophia, and his Stuffie. They were puppet type things age a live girl who narrates than things that come from the sky. We ate at Pizza Planet. We wanted to hit up the arcade but Collins was so hungry and tired.

I'll go on tomorrow after we do more! But so far so good. We haven't had any melt downs! And I'm enjoying my hubby time. I can't keep my hands off him! I'm kissing him or squeezing his butt all day!
