With Evelyn’s due date right around the corner (July 6th), we are counting the limited days we have left as a family three. It’s definitely bittersweet…I’m sure it’s going to be hard to see Grady go from my baby to the big boy of the family. But we are also so excited to meet this little angel and watch him fully embrace his new role as a big brother.
As I look back over these past 9 months and all of the heavy decisions we made along the way, I can honestly say that I am so happy with where we are. The decision to stay at home with Grady was never an easy one, but it is the best decision of my life. I have learned so much about myself, motherhood, and happiness over these past few months. And while we have faced plenty of challenges along the way with selling the house and preparing our new home, we have also seized our opportunity to fully relish our time together. Grady and I have developed a bond even stronger than I ever thought possible…and there is absolutely nothing in this world that can replace that. He continues to push me and to teach me on a daily basis, and I only expect for him to challenge me further as the days progress. Obviously, I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I often get asked about the status of starting my business. And honestly, I just have not had the time to concentrate on that at this point. While it is still very much a goal of mine, it is not my primary focus at the moment and will likely take a back seat until after we settle into our new home with our newest addition and I have the chance to evaluate any true opportunities. The interesting thing is that I don’t feel a huge urge to dive right into something….I am perfectly fulfilled staying at home with my babies. If you had told me that 5 years ago, I would have said you are crazy. But this journey has taught me to expect the unexpected and to truly appreciate the quiet and fleeting moments in life.
I have been working on some fun projects in our new home like the new Playroom and Evelyn’s nursery, so I will share that here soon! But I wanted to just give a quick update on what has been keeping us so busy these past few months. We are finally settled and counting down the days to being a Family of Four!
It has been a long few months and we are so thankful to our family for all of their support and of course our friends who have helped to keep us sane along the way!
