Today is my anniversary, three years and many more to follow. I had no idea I’d have been married for three years at 22 years old. Let alone have two kids in that time. But I wouldn’t give it up for the world. I’m so very blessed to have married the man I did. He is my rock, my best friend, the best father to our children, and my other half. We keep each other grounded. We are for the most part what the other one isn’t. Marriage is a lot of give and take. It’s a lot of work. It’s being there in the worst and best times, not giving up, A LOT of forgiving and A LOT of love. I could’t imagine my life any different. My husband has been the most supportive of all my decisions. He has seen the bad, the good, the ugly, the put together woman I can be; and I of the man he can be. There are the ups and downs, but the good times by far out weigh the bad. Loving him was the best choice I ever made and it all started with an “I think I love you” ❤
Can I just throw out there that lately I’ve been putting a drop or two of eucalyptus and lavender in the bottom of my shower. I LOVE IT! You know, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of going to the spa, that they have a steam room or sauna room. Well, back in California I have amazing people in my life who gave me a card to get a free spa treatment. While this new mom to an eight month old at the time gladly took a spa treatment, I went into one of these lovely rooms and they had eucalyptus oil mixed with the steam the sprayed out occasionally. It was by far the most relaxing place. Mix that room with a cold glass of cucumber water and it’s one awesome day. So as I said I’ve been putting eucalyptus and lavender in the bottom of my shower and with a little less steam it is still sooooooo relaxing. Did I put enough O’s? haha I just love that I can be in my own shower and get the same relaxing feeling as a sauna/ steam room.
So my husband thought it would be cute if he taught Jack how to growl and now he does it all the time. It is the cutest thing. He does it a lot when he is a happy boy. He’ll wake up from a nap and sometimes the only way we know he’s awake is because he’s talking and growling haha. When he’s playing with his stuffed bear he’ll do it then too. He’s walking with a lot more confidence. Now he’s learning how to stand up by himself, he’s done it a few times so far. It is amazing how quick he picks up on everything. I love watching him learn his own boundaries knowing what he can and cannot do. It’s like one big fun adventure with him.
This isn’t the first and definitely won’t be the last. In one month my baby boy will be a year. One year. One freaking year. I don’t know how it has gone by so fast. I was in bed the other night and I found myself thinking about everything and how he’s learning new things. He’s growing so fast. All of a sudden I’m crying and I walk down stairs to my husband and just sit in his lap and cry. He asked me what was wrong and all I said was he’s growing up to fast. I guess we’r always told it goes by fast but you never really know how fast until you have one of your own. It’s like everything else I guess, it feels like it takes forever to get to that point but when you get there it feels like yesterday you were just finding out about it. Kids are a blessing and even though I may dread it sometimes I love watching Jackson grow.
Hey guys! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am right now, but scared at the same time. My baby boy can walk! I mean he can walk guys! As long as he is already standing up he walks so well. We’re getting him use to walking with shoes too. I’m so proud of him, he’ll fall down every so often but he’s getting the hang of it. He still has to learn stand up with no help but I’m in no rush for him to grow up any faster 🙂 The other night we were getting him ready for a bath and he was standing against the door. All of a sudden my husband said babe grab him. I looked over and the little man was walking out of the bathroom toward the stairs! I don’t think I’ve ever dropped something and ran so fast in my life. He was laughing and I’m thinking in my head that could’ve been very bad. We learned very quick all doors are shut when he’s in the room. I can’t believe he’s growing up so fast though. I’m learning to enjoy every little moment there is with him.
I love watching my little man grow up, but I hate it at the same time. He’s already half the size of me and he weighs 30 pounds already. He’s the happiest baby unless something is wrong. He is trying to walk and it’s so fun, but it kills me. He’s growing up so fast. He’s taken a few steps by himself and he’s super fast. Although when we try to get him to do it himself he just sits. He’ll definitely be walking before his first birthday, which can I say is only a month and a half away 😩 my baby is getting so big so fast!
So a couple nights ago my husband and my son went to bed super early. At first I didn’t know what to do with myself so I face timed the parents. I talked to them for about 2 or so hours, caught up on everything since we left. I got off and decided to take a shower. It was so nice! I got to take a decently long shower. I even got to shave my legs! I didn’t have to worry about them because they were knocked out asleep. I had made my self dinner, was able to FaceTime, and take a shower! I was super excited about it. Haha. Anyone with kids knows that feeling of being able to do something and not have to worry about keeping an eye on them. Then of course I went to bed and I couldn’t have been happier to be with them both. I got a little bit of me time, it was really nice, but I always miss my boys. 🙂
