Blogging with a burnt out brain.

My brain is about to melt with everything that has gone on. I already had a mini meltdown last week it was so overwhelming. It’s starting to get a little better now, but it’s still not over.

Since my brain is so fried I can’t sit down and concentrate on a good post. So this is what I’m going to do: another update post. The present is easier to write about for me anyway.

1. Both boys are going through crazy growth spurts. Rafael is almost the same height as his big brother… Poor Gabriel got the short end of the stick height wise. David’s siblings and parents are all on the shorter end. My mom was taller than her parents but both my grandparent are shorter than 5’5″.

2. Teeth. Oh those teeth. Still. Enough said.

3. I know I posted about how the boys didn’t want to watch Frozen with me. Well I was wrong. Very wrong. They both love it. Gabriel asks to watch it at least once a day. Rafael will sit/stand there with him to watch the characters sing. Every once in a while Rafael will sing his version of “Let it Go”. “Et e goooo”. It’s even cuter when he signs it at 2 in the morning when he wakes up for an hour for not reason at all. Gabriel and I have a mean duet of “Love is an Open Door”.

4. Yesterday David and I took the kids out for ice cream and to Toys R Us. We had a hard time trying to get the kids to listen to us. Our new thing to tell them is to turn on their listening ears. Gabriel looks at me and pretends to turn down his listening ears. “So I can’t hear you mommy”.  David is  a huge fan of wrestling. The WWE is having some Instagram contest so we “had” to take a picture to enter… He puts up with my interests, I can only do the same for his.



5. I threw out my back. Again. It could be an emotional/stress trigger but I’m going to make an appointment with a doctor to finally get an answer.

6. Gabriel sat on his own for the first time to get a haircut. Usually he will only let the hairdresser cut his hair if he’s sitting on one of our laps. This time the stylist cut his hair really well. And I forgot to take an after picture of his hair.



7. Here’s a picture of Rafael “driving” a blue car with his rear end…


8. How did we go from enjoying 70 degree weather one day…


…to 30 degrees and snowing the next.


9. Gabriel wants an Elsa figure. He’s asked me a couple of times if he could get one but I didn’t realize how hard it would be to get my hands on one. I thought I was lucky to find the flipping castle that only comes with Anna. This merchandise has become the present time Tickle Me Elmo!


Yup. Nothing much going on here. How are things going on with you?

Life as it is…

Hello everyone! Yes, I took a month long hiatus. It’s great to see you again.

September was a crazy month.

We went on a weekend road trip at the beginning of the month. And by we I mean mommy, daddy and the two babies. It was a little rough coming home but the rest of the weekend was a dream! I fell in love with Nashville. Hope we get to know it more soon.

Grandpa started his radiation the Monday we came back. He goes 5 days a week for 9 weeks. His appointments are early to get them out of the way, but the clinic is certainly out of the way. It takes about 40 minutes one way to get there on a good day. I will admit getting up earlier than I normally do is kicking my butt big time. I take him at least three times during the week. My aunt and uncles try to do two or more but since they work it’s harder for them to take him.

The kids grew bigger and now they are doing cool stuff. I can’t believe my baby Rafael turns one in almost a month! Gabriel will turn three not to long after that! Rafael is going to kick off what will be three months of holiday/birthday festivities for us. I’m in full party planning mode right now. My Pinterest boards are going to blow up!

There is so much I want to share, but not enough time to get posts done.

Soon. There will be time soon.

Health and Stuff

It’s been pretty quite here on, but Casa de Bridges has been a big hustle and bustle.

So far this year,
•I had Mr. G
•Mr G is growing so fast (he’s almost a year)!
• I went through a really rough couple of months healthwise.
•We had a very scary ambulance ride to the ER for Mr G.
•We’ve been laying low and taking as many breaks as to not burn out (ie, changing jobs, not worrying if something isn’t clean, enjoying our little one).
•We’ve been battling what seems like the plague over here.

I will get it in me to type it all out. I’m just trying to enjoy life before I share my life.
