Life Lately...

one

This week… whew… great hanging with our new little bundle of joy and our spunky toddler… rough on some other fronts.  It is hard to go through tough times and it is almost just as hard to see people we love go through tough times.  I was reminded of this song this week… maybe it will be encouraging for you too :)

People are all over the map when it comes to after they have babies… for me?  
I love…
1. Having visitors.  Some people do not like this, but I guess it is the people person in me… I want people around admiring this new squishy newborn… and just to talk too :)
Pic included just because it is cute… I mean really… 2 year old reading to the 2 week old… killing me with cuteness :)
2.  People bringing meals.  Seriously, besides trying to figure out whose tupperware goes back to whom… it is the best ever.  We have not had to cook or grocery shop since Jameson has arrived!  
And we have had dessert with almost every meal… thank you friends for making sure I don't lose the baby weight too quickly ;)

On the note of having baby J… as your readers know I went WAY past my due date and was getting pretty discouraged.  It all kind of seems silly now that I have a healthy little one here, 
So thankful for  this little who already weighed 11 lbs 6 ounces and was 23 inches long at his 2 week check up...
but really those last two weeks were rough.  I wrote a little post sharing how to get through it… the going past your due date :)

Had the opportunity to share over at Waltzing in Beauty about what I wish I knew before I got married!  Hint:  it has to do with the first year… you should check it out :)


five

I talk about our kiddos a lot and don't brag enough on my husband.  He is truly amazing and has been awesome (as usual) as we have made this transition.  From being a birth coach, to being an expert swaddler, to dressing baby dolls, to bringing me gatorade… I can't express enough how much my Andrew means to me :)
He may kill me for posting this one… but this is real life ;)


How has your week been??? :)

  8. Sweet pictures of dad and the kiddos!

    When you called him your birth coach, it made me laugh and reminded me that after my second was born the nurses said my hubby could be a doula. Haha! He was very calming and helped me focus, but a doula?? It so doesn't fit him. Never. :) And I'm not sure if there are any male doulas out there?

    1. Hahaha… I don't know if I would feel quite comfortable with a male doula… but who knows… maybe our husbands could make it happen ;)

    2. Um. No. I'm not letting him take that as his next job. ;)

  11. So sweet! I'm glad things are going well and look at how little man is growing already! Love it! :)

    I'm entering 3rd trimester and things are getting more rough, hopefully I'll find a rhythm of sorts in the next couple weeks that'll get me through to the end when I'll have to find another lol
