Mandy's Family

My husband:

We just celebrated 4 years of marriage this last Valentine's Day. He is an incredible husband and father to our 3 boys.
He was a ranch manager in southern Colorado until we moved to Oregon where he is pursuing a career in law enforcement. I truly think it's his calling in life and I'm so excited for him. I will miss his Wrangler butt that I was blessed to see everyday in CO, but I can't wait to see him in a police officer uniform. So I guess it's worth the sacrifice. ;)

He is enrolled in the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and is so proud of his heritage. We are in the process of getting our boys enrolled as well.

He does some amazing bead work and sold a lot of hatbands when our Etsy store was up and running. It's time consuming, but it's so beautiful. He also tans hides and was able to do a lot when we lived in CO since he had so much land to trap on at the ranch. We have a lot of his furs here and our newest addition to the family has one of the furs in his cradle.

He was an EMT in CO and did wild land firefighting before we met, so he truly is a man of MANY talents. And he's only 24! 

He's the best daddy to our kiddos and spoils them like crazy.

And I'm truly so lucky to call him mine.

My kids:

First born is Cash Jason. The boy who made me a momma. He's sweet and crazy. I love him so. He is 3 and has made our world so much better. He is a stinker, but has such a tender heart. He's been a wonderful big brother to both of our other boys and he's a complete daddy's boy. 

Stetson Neil was baby #2. He is our wild child. He's one year old and adores his brothers. He's been such a fun and perfect addition to our family. He's ridiculously naughty and keeps us on our toes every single day. He's more of a mommas boy. He's been so sweet trying to help with the baby and hold him. It's fun watching him take on the role of big brother now.

Baby #3 is yep, you guessed it...another boy. :)
Takoda Xavior made his grand entrance in January. He came a little early and I'm so glad because the end of that pregnancy was rough! He has been the best addition to our family. I can't wait to see his personality come out as he gets older. For now, he spends most of his days eating, sleeping, pooping and being the best cuddler ever.

We will probably have one more of our own and then hopefully adopt down the road. I'm excited to see what the future holds for our family. Who knows if we will have all boys or if we'll end up having a daughter. What I do know is that I am so thankful to be a mom and am so blessed to call these boys ours.

My Birth Stories

There is so much I could write about pregnancy, giving birth to my two sons and all that happens after. I thought about splitting this up into a bunch of different topics, but let's be honest...I don't get on here nearly as often as I'd like so I think it's a better idea for me to just sit down and take the time to blog about Cash and Stetson's birth stories in one sitting. I'll definitely have a separate blog post sometime in the future on pregnancy, but that is seriously a WHOLE different subject with a WHOLE lot of topics within itself.

So my son Cash will be 3 in September. I had a normal pregnancy with him; the morning (all day) sickness, exhaustion, fatigue, etc. I am so thankful that it was a healthy pregnancy and that my body was able to bring life to this little man.

Near the end of my pregnancy, D and I moved into our first apartment. I graduated from cosmetology school about a week before my due date and I ended up going into labor close to 41 weeks.…

I'm going to apologize in advance if this is all over the place. Hahaha. Blogging while your needy sick toddlers are around isn't the easiest and I've thought of a million different things I want to talk about as I've been writing, so this may seem a bit scatterbrained. Lol. But hopefully this can help some of y'all that have wanted to start doing this! I enjoy being honest with you guys and hope that you all know how thankful I am for every one of you that I have connected with online!

If you've been following me on Instagram for awhile, you'll know that I haven't been doing this for a long time. In fact, my first collaboration wasn't even until around April of this year, so I've only been doing this for around 9 months. I'm still very …
