29/40: Baby Bump Files

::29 weeks::
this marks the last week in my 20’s … for good! wow, where did the time go?!?! if baby girl goes to her due date she only has 11 weeks to go before she will enter this world & our arms! I am so anxious! I cannot wait to see her face, smell her skin and love her in the flesh.

being a mother has changed me. it has surprised me. scared the living daylights out of me. made me smile so much it brought me to tears. my husband and I are so blessed to be able to love not one but TWO precious hearts that together we created. that still amazes me every second of every day.

the movements are getting stronger and stronger by the day. her subtle movements are now very obvious kicks and jabs. I love them, all of them. this morning i actually woke-up to hiccups that were not mine but hers. i honestly thought my husband was tapping me until i realized it was our pretty little lady ready to start the day.

as we get closer, I am nesting and planning more and more. discussing maternity leave at work, buying last minute nursery needs and a few cute must haves. planning hospital registration and pediatrician arrangements. funny how you manage the second time vs. the first. with our first, I was planning, planning, planning and now I am chill and letting it just happen.

big brother is getting more excited the more we talk about it. we explained that mama and dad will be at the hospital for a few days which is where his sister will be born … he nods and say “yes” in agreement and slips in that he wants to come too. we promised him that he will be the first person to meet her, one I intend to keep. that moment is going to fill my heart so full.

crazy to think that 15 years ago if you would have asked me if I wanted kids I probably would have said no. it took meeting the man I intend on spending forever with to change my heart. now, i believe I was born to be a mama. I couldn’t imagine life without my kids.

28/40: Baby Bump Files

:: 28 weeks ::
baby girl is getting bigger and bigger and more and more active daily.  I am so in love with this little lady already.  according to my doctor, she is right on track and so am I.  I did have to do the three hour glucose test again with this pregnancy.  apparently my body does not know how to properly use carbohydrates when I am pregnant. the test is awful and gave me serious anxiety BUT I got through it (with a few tears and a bit of queasiness) but I made it through it … now we wait for the results.

The past week has been a super busy & exciting one.  My sister threw me the most amazing, beautiful baby shower.

I was blessed with company and love from some of the most amazing females in my life.  we get older and life changes, along with those changes so do our social circles.  for me, I have realized that mine has become smaller.  if I am being honest, some days that stings but then there are days like this past weekend … celebrating the growing life inside of me & looking around to see the people that took the time out of their life to be a part of mine.  those of the really, true friends and the size of that circle no longer matters because I have the realest people around me when the important things in life happen.

I am blessed. so very blessed. 

life is good!

natural vitamin WIN for picky toddlers

Toddlers are picky & super opinionated.

My son (just over two & a half) refused to take chewable vitamins and only wanted the liquid kind – I obliged because it was vitamins and not the 278,347th request to watch Paw Patrol. Until one day, he decided liquid vitamins were “yucky” 😑

:: bangs head against wall + throws money out the door, again ::

This time I decided to try Young Living Chewable MightyVites … I mean what could I loose besides another fight with a two year old. We got them delivered 📦 yesterday & he was immediately intrigued. I told him they were “Super Big Boy Vitamins” he insisted that he must “bite one right now” – DING DING DING!  🎉Not only did he take it, he liked it and was VERY proud of himself. This morning when I presented the bottle (casually in fear that he would put up a fight) he exclaimed “My Big Boy Vitamins!” 💪🏼

Folks, this is a BIG WIN for most parents! At least this one! I am so happy I took a chance and even happier that he is willing to take them!
More Info from Young Living: 🌱Using nutrient-dense whole food sources, the new MightyVites contain superfruits, plants and veggies that deliver the full-spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients for children’s developing bodies. The new MightyVites chewable tablets feature an enhanced vitamin-mineral source and two new and improved natural flavors: orange cream and mixed berry.
