I want to start this post by saying I am not a morning person. AT ALL. I could sleep til noon if a little someone would allow it :) I need my sleep or else I am one unhappy camper. It's really quite ridiculous. I always thought that once you became a mom you would just sort of change into a morning person, but nope. I still hate mornings and I still love my sleep. That is when I use to be able to get a good nights sleep...

So I'm sure many of you have seen these mattresses that are shipped to you in a huge box, right? I will be the first to admit that I was a little skeptical about them. How comfortable could a mattress be when it's shipped in a box just a little bigger than myself?

Well, I was pretty much put in my place when we decided to try out Tuft & Needle. I can't even put into words how great this mattress has been! Especially for my pregnant self. My gosh, it's honestly like sleeping on your own personal fluffy cloud. It's really is a little piece of perfection in a box. The first night we slept on it, Josh was amazed. He woke me up the next morning just to let me know how well he slept and that we will always be customers of Tuft&Needle. It's honestly that good! It was actually pretty funny. Our previous mattress we have had since we've been married. It was our first official married couple purchase and we were so proud of it! Until just recently (okay, more like within the past couple years) when we started noticing our backs killing us every morning and the tossing and turning that happened every night. The first night we slept on our Tuft & Needle mattress Josh turns to me and says "I started searching for my indent and couldn't find it and then I remembered we have this sweet new mattress!" You guys should have seen him. He was like a little boy on Christmas morning! And yes, our previous mattress had indents of where we would sleep. All nicely sunken into those uncomfortable mattress springs... so awful. So all I can say is hallelujah to no more springs and hello to comfy foam!

You can read all about Tuft&Needle HERE but one of my favorite things about this company is that they make the mattresses in the United States. The fabric actually comes from a family owned textile company in the Carolinas and the foam is poured and cut here in the United States.

When we move Copleand into a twin, we will definitely be getting him one of these mattresses. He currently has been sleeping in our bed since May, you guys. MAY! As much as I love him sleeping with us, I'm not getting any smaller from here on out so we finally got him out of our bed and into his own room with his own big boy toddler bed last week so he hasn't yet experienced the delight of this mattress ;) Soon big guy, soon!

thank you Tuft & Needle for sponsoring this post!

December Sayings



I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas! We had the best time just hanging out at home and spending time with family and friends :) Copeland is getting sillier by the day! Here are some of his Decemeber sayings... 
  • When we tell him we love him he replies with "I love you too" we then say "Love you more" and he says "I love you most." 

  • The other day he came onto the bed and pried open my eye and asked "Mama build snowman?"  Can you tell we obviously watch too many Disney movies! 


  • While I was tickling his feet the other night he laughs and says to me "WOW mom, you're are pretty crazy!"


  • We love eating the sweetie oranges (we call them baby oranges) and I grabbed one asked Copeland if he wanted a baby orange. He looked at the orange I was holding out and says "I do want that baby orange! Baby orange looks like baby Jesus, I love baby Jesus!" 

  • If he gets hurt on anything (wall, stubs toe on table, playing too rough and gets hurt with his wooden toy hammer) he will point to whatever hurt him and say "Silly hammer", "Silly table" "Silly wall" as he's trying not to cry and doing his best to hold back tears.

  • During dinner prayer the other night Copeland yells out "Heeeyyyyy! What's the big idea!?" Right as the food was being blessed. #facepalm 

  • Santa brought him a kitchen for Christmas and today he came up to me with a plastic egg and said "Mama! Mama! I made you eggs!" "Ohh yummy! Thank you! You're the best cook there ever was!" I told him. As he's walking away he says "You're welcome. Happy Birthday mama." My birthday is in May haha.

  • We were watching tv and a commercial came on and
    Copeland completely stops what he was playing with, watches the commercial and once it's over he looks at me all wide eyed and says "That was weeiiirrrrdddddddd"
