I went from working full time 40+ hours a week to staying home and my husband working full time. Now I see him when he’s home, he’s tired, I’m tired and the kids are on the go or want nothing but all the attention. But despite the tiredness, the sleepless nights, and the less time with my husband; I’m so amazingly blessed. I have a wonderful loving husband and two amazingly beautiful children. Even when I wake up in the morning barely able to keep my eyes open while I make a cup of coffee and breakfast for the two year old, he’ll ask “mommy hold you?”. Of course. Always. Then of course we eat the next thing he wants is to get cozy on the couch, which for him is grabbing a blanket going to the couch, throwing on a cartoon and cuddling with mommy. My heart melts every time. I’m lucky enough that the 4 month old sleeps long enough for me to get that time with him.
I watch him grow and learn everyday of which, I hadn’t gotten the chance to do. So now being here for both her and him is the most amazing thing. I’m so grateful my husband was in agreement when I said I wanted to do this. I mean what could be more rewarding than being able to watch your kids grow up and you don’t have to miss it. With that being said we’ve really thought about what we have our kids around too and what we have in our home. My son mostly when he starts having melt downs he’ll go grab his ‘green one’ which is just a stress away oil roll on and he loves smelling it and calms down. I never thought he’d ask for oils but he does. Since we live with my husbands parents, they have a dog and boy does he love her, sometimes a little to much.
My daughter, she’s such a happy baby. She always kicks and plays with her little gym on the floor, she loves looking at herself in the mirror. Rilynn laughs and smiles way more than Jackson ever did, he was so serious all the time. I can’t wait to see what her personality is and see the things she’ll ask for. But, because of my husband and my business I now get chance to see them grow up and I’m so very blessed to do so.
So I am posting this a day late sorry guys but happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely moms out there, even if all you have are your little fur babies. I had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I worked a 12 hour shift, but then came home to my husband who had dinner ready and on the table for me. Did I mention yesterday was our anniversary as well? I was super thankful. Now I get a whole four days off to spend with my little man and my hubby. Since I worked yesterday my husband woke me up to a wonderful day after Mother’s Day breakfast in bed. I ate in bed with my son and husband then he let me go back to sleep after I had a full feed tummy 😍 I’m super grateful and thankful for my husband. And let me tell you I tell him as much as I can and I still feel like I don’t tell him enough. So happy late Mother’s Day to all you beautiful Momma’s out there 😊❤️
So my son has learned to spin. He’s just great at it. He also doesn’t have the best balance so runs into doors, chairs, and tables haha. It’s adorable to see him running around and spinning until he runs into something and about gives me a heart attack. He’s also learning more words which I love and hate. He’s getting so big. He came up to me the other day and looked me straight in the eyes and said what doing. I had to double take guys! He’s saying ball and book and a few other words. He’s just learning so much and I feel like at any moment he’s just gonna start saying full sentences. He’s such a little adventurer too, he’s always on the go. He loves “reading” and by that I mean telling us story’s we can’t understand as he flips through books. He’s breaking my heart getting so big but I love watching him 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.
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. 🙂
Hey guys! Sorry it’s been a bit since I’ve posted something. My family and I were traveling back to the states. It’s been a year and a half since we’ve been home and nobody in our family has met the little one. Let me tell you though I missed home so much. My brothers finally got to meet my son and the youngest loves him so much. My youngest brother is like me when I was around him when he was first born. He wants to love him and hold him all day long. Being home after a year and a half makes you appreciate your time with your family more than if you were there everyday. You know most people today are so hung up on technology, wanting what everyone else wants and wondering what everyone else is doing, they lose sight of what really matters; family. Family is going to be that one thing that’s always going to be there, no matter how annoying they may be, no matter how bad their decisions may be, they will always be there. While on vacation I will continue to post but there may be longer periods in between than usual. Love your family, take time for them and yourself and make sure you make every minute count.
Can I just start by saying how much I love watching my husband interact with our son. I swear it makes me fall in love with him all over again every time. I love how they both love being around each other. I love that I can see how much Tim loves him and not just saying it. He shows acts of love for Jackson and you can see in his eyes how much he loves him. the bond between Tim and Jackson is indescribable they are so much alike. Seeing them together makes me happy and I love watching them interact. There are times when Jackson just wakes up and Tim comes down the stairs and Jackson just had his head laid on Tim’s shoulder. I swear it melts my heart. The love I have for the two of them has no words. 🙂
