The Calm Before The Storm

31 WEEKS PREGNANT!

In just a few days I will be telling people I am due NEXT MONTH — the count down is on!

Everything seems pretty perfect right now. Addison is sleeping amazing despite teething, the sun is shinning, our house renovations are finally wrapping up and I can finally get a start on the nursery.

Life is good.

I just wanted to take a short moment while Addison and I eat breakfast and write a little bit of a reminder. I know with a newborn & two under two things will get hectic but when I think life is at its hardest I’ll have this to read—  easier days will come, I won’t always be sleep deprived, starving and grumpy.


Addison has always been a pretty easy-going baby in my opinion. With that being said there has been nights I thought I wouldn’t make it to morning or days I counted down the hours until bedtime, days I wonder how myself and my relationship made it out of. We have only been out of the first year for a short time but I feel like if you can survive the first year of motherhood you can basically take on anything life throws your way.


For the next two months I am going to absorb every second of life and embrace all that I can before time slips away from me again, days just fade together and I blink and I am sitting here with a one year old and a two-year old.


*Note to myself and any other Mamas having the hardest day, week, month or year ever —

This time is only brief, it will get easier, so much easier. one-day you will look at your independent toddler and wish they still needed you a little more because each day she will need you a little less.

This may be a bit of a “babble” post but I believe one day I will need it.
