The evening fussy time, although his was never that consistent, is finally over for good. We are no longer lapping the first floor of our house 500 times a night trying to soothe a fussy baby.
I am sad that my little guy is growing up although it's exciting to see him change and experience new things. He is so smiley and happy most of the time lately. I am very blessed to have such a good baby! Jillian is finally adjusting to her new life too with another baby in the house. She loves to hug and kiss her brother every chance she can get and always wants to know where the baby is. I finally feel like I can leave the room to change a load of laundry or grab something upstairs without having to worry about Jillian conking heads with her little brother.
With the weather finally warming up, I have been trying to venture out of the house with the two little ones on my own. Yesterday I decided to see how the Splash park would go. It honestly went surprisingly well, the only issue I had was that they both fell asleep on our way there. Since Jillian had refused to nap for me earlier, I drove around the city for an hour while they both slept.
My drive was actually quite therapeutic! I was able to listen to the radio without interruption and enjoyed a peaceful afternoon drive as if I were by myself. We live within minutes of Lake Erie so I drove up and down the lake front while they napped.
Once Jillian woke up, we headed over to the Splash park for some fun before Daddy got home.
I am slowly adjusting to life as a Stay At Home Mom. It has honestly been a harder adjustment than I ever imagined and still trying to get used to my new life. I haven't forgotten about your questions and will get to them hopefully soon. Many of you asked about adjusting to life as a Stay At Home Mom so I will share with you in more detail how it's going in my upcoming Q&A post.
I took the kids to the office last week to visit Jeff and to turn in my badge and laptop. It was wonderful to see my old co-workers and show off my babies. A very bittersweet day for me, I am officially no longer employed!! I would have went back to work this past Friday if I had decided to return to work. It still feels so surreal to me and the finality of it hasn't officially hit me just yet.
The stars aligned this afternoon so I decided to give the ole blog a Summer make over. I love the orange and teal color combo this season and decided to go with the same color scheme on the blog. This was actually my first blog make over using PicMonkey and I have to say I am in love!! You all know how upset I was with Picnik going away, however, dare I say PicMonkey might be even better than Picnik??? Is that even possible? I love all their different fonts and their collage feature is finally up and running. PicMonkey is also keeping up with all the social media trends by offering a collage feature exclusively for your Facebook timeline.
Wow, it feels so good to actually to publish a blog post!! Hopefully this is a sign of more to come.
Hope you are all having a good week!
