|Mother's Day at the OBX- and I still had over a month of pregnancy left|
TOO MUCH. Probably what I really would have like to write about when it was happening was how I just said "yes" too much. Some people (Kevin) thrive on having tons of stuff going on. I was always one to participate in one major activity and spend my time with that other than having a ton of extracurriculars and splitting my time. This time last year I was working on a Pearson project, the MOMS Club President, and just joining Wildtree while also keeping busy with CJ. We would try to get out every morning and then I would do "my stuff" during the afternoon while he was napping. It was just too much for me- I felt like I couldn't spend enough time doing anything right. Then, I found out I was pregnant and shortly after starting having some issues along with normal first trimester nausea. Without getting into gory details, I had to put some things on hold so I could take care of me and the baby, and for the first time I was okay with that. Relative to my pregnancy with CJ this one was a bit harder- even after the earlier issues resolved I was uncomfortable a lot earlier, swollen earlier (the pregnancy ended with mild pre-eclampsia), and just overall in much more of a funk. The freezing winter could have also had something to do with that too. The recovery time after having Summer was longer than with CJ and life with a newborn and a potty training 3 year old was not easy. But, I am happy to say that life is much more under control now than it has for a year I would say!
|These two. I can't even.|
So now that I feel more motivated and energized during the day (and am not nursing a baby around the clock) I am hoping to regularly update this blog. We'll see how it goes, but I will keep it the same with family updates, recipes, and other topics that I come up with while taking a shower. :) Have a good weekend!
