A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

The Monday Snapshot – BUSES!


Matthew’s favorite siting, in the entire world right now, is a school bus!  If it’s parked, it’s awesome.  If it’s moving, it’s even better.  If there are more than one on the road, it’s life-altering  😉  We have a school just down the road from us that usually has 1-6 buses parked out back at any given time.  We drive by to “see the buses” at least once a day.  If we come to the “bus intersection” with Matthew in the car, he promptly instructs us where he wants us to take him.  It’s quite cute, and we usually oblige him because – well – he’s cute  😉

The other day, the buses were parked in a way that I could get a picture of Matthew gazing at them, with them in the background.  YAY!  This obsession is documented for all time!

"Matthew, what do you see?"

“Matthew, what do you see?”

"Hello, buses!"

“Hello, buses!”

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. This is so cute how much he loves the buses!! And so awesome that you have a school just down the road so he can go see them everyday. How fun! I wonder if he’ll love them as much when you send him off on his first day of school in a few years?! 😉

  2. Love his facial expressions! He seems like such a mellow kid… It’s making me wonder if baby brother is gonna be a real firecracker. 😉

    • I believe that BB2 is going to give us a run for our money. I just think it’s really close to impossible to get two mellow babies in a row! BB2 will probably teach Matthew how to freak out!

  3. Cute!!!! L loves em too! ALso – we have that same mohawk hat! love it!

    • That hat is too fun! And warm! What is it about babies and school buses? Heck, anything yellow that moves gets a squeal of great glee out of Matthew. TAXI! BUS! TRUCK! SEMI! MUSTANG! 😉

  4. Adorable! I’ve got a little boy who is obsessed with buses too. I wonder what it is…

  5. Poor Raegan is still too little to face forward so she only sees her own reflection and me in her mirror. I can’t wait to turn her around in her big girl car seat, you know it like 3 years, LOL. 🙂

    • We did it early because he just could not take it anymore. We flipped him at 13 months or so. Best decision EVER! BUSES OMG!

      • Raegan still isn’t 20 pounds yet….And she’s still in the infant carrier. Those don’t face forward LOL

      • Yeah, we moved Matthew into the convertable carseat when he was 9 months old – I was just so over the carrier (we bought the heaviest one out there, I’m afraid!). You’re a trooper for still lugging that thing around!
