We are so excited to announce a new member of the Malko family

but growing in size and in love daily!
We can't wait to meet them in the very beginning of July!

Feel free to comment with some pointer or "what i wish I would have known"

Young Living Oils

SO recently - about 6 months ago started using Young Living essential oils. I was very interested up front because we prefer natural remedies, eating organic, and using "real ingredients" - wether that be for eating, cleaning, or treating ailments! What really pushed me over the edge was a close friend who had a cavity. In between the time she found out about it and when she went to get it filled she started putting thieves oil on it. When she went in to get it filled she didn't have a cavity anymore! the dentist couldn't believe it - but I could! and I was sold haha! So we bought a starter kit and started using the oils for ailments that we had. My husband really struggles with allergies since we live in the Ohio River valley - and he did not grow up here. He started using lavender, lemon and peppermint oil (mixed with coconut oil) and amazingly his allergy symptoms were relieved! We use lavender on little cuts and scrapes that our kids get constantly - and lavender and cedar wood to help our kiddos rest at night! I LOVE peace and calling essential oil - it is has helped us with coughing fits and those meltdowns that are unavoidable with toddlers! Basically I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Young Living Oils!

In fact - we love them so much that I actually became a distributer - i don't do it much but really just to help out friends and family that were already interested!

Happy Halloween

Today was FREEZING! 
The coldest Halloween I can remember.
But that didn't stop our kiddos from having a blast!
They were Mario and Princess Peach - Camille said they were "Madio Caughts" 
They RAN to every door.
BUT I think they enjoyed handing out Candy even more! 
They each had to give every kid a handful of candy. 
We handed out around 400 pieces tonight!
Anderson commented on every kids costume and if they said thank you, Camille said "Yow yelcum".
We had a warm chili dinner with all of my side of the family,
and it was indeed, a Happy Halloween!

Camille is 1!

I seriously cannot believe my baby girl is 1! It is so crazy how with your first you are ready for every milestone and basically aging them up before they really even get there, and with your second you can't help but look at them and think of them as a bitty baby! I guess it is easy to do with a big wild 3 year old running circles around her! She is seriously so precious y'all - and feisty too haha!

Here are some sweet milestones we have reached:
-has taken 14 steps - but not walking yet
- has 3 teeth all on the bottom - I know weird right?
-eats anything and everything - except peas (tonight she ate sausage and peppers for dinner, Anderson had leftover spaghetti haha)
-says: momma, dad, bubu (for anderson), nana (granna), pap, mooo, bock bock, rrruufff, light, yeah, no no, nigh nigh (night night), hi, bye, "her uh do" (here ya go), yay, mmm ma (for kiss), mmmm mmm (for yummy)... i think that is all? I am sure I will think of something else once I post this haha.
-she is a total lover girl - always hugging and kissing someone or something! 
-she makes eyes at her daddy any time he walks in the room! He is her favorite!
-she laughs easily and often
-she is VERY tickelish
-she loves to play rough and wrestle! she gets so wild it is hilarious.
-she can crawl safely up and down the stairs - don't worry we always watch her closely!
-she plays very well independently - something her big brother still has a little trouble with

And here are some of her 1 year old pictures that the very talented Brittany Culver with Halo Photography took! I am smitten with our little lady! And i am sure you can see why ;)
