Whew! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve made my way over here. I tell you, only I would start a blog and find out two and a half weeks later I am pregnant, ha! Needless to say, I had to take a little breather and focus on keeping my people alive. (Well, and myself for that matter.) It’s been a crazy, sleepy, 12 weeks full of lots of naps and take-out, but we couldn’t be more excited to be adding another little one to our family! Tyler and I have always wanted a lot of kids (I think Tyler would have ten), and we’re thrilled the Lord has blessed us with another peanut! #GiveMeAllTheBabies
Now that I am no longer likely to be found sleeping while standing up, I hope to make my way back over to this space a bit more. Thank you for hanging in there, and also for being so excited about our newest addition coming in May!
I do want to add, if you’re in the trenches of trying to get pregnant or grow your family, please know I’m sending you the biggest hug I have. We have been there… and there was a time we weren’t sure we were ever going to see the light again out of that dark place. Baby announcements from other people don’t make it any brighter, either. I can vividly remember our season of waiting with Breck and seeing a new one every day. And it stings. I hope that sting is short, and you can find hope that there IS life and babies after a long journey where you’re not sure you’re ever going to get there… after tests results that don’t go your way … talks of infertility… and everything in between. We have been there, and let me tell you… when you get to come out of that dark place, the light is even better than you remember.
So, if you need an ear to listen… If you want to pick my brain about our journey… anything, please message me. I can’t thank the women enough that were there for me when I was going through it. Their advice and encouragement were worth more than gold. And let me finish with this, the Lord IS faithful. Your cries do NOT fall on deaf ears, I promise you. And when you do meet your baby, you’ll know exactly why you had to wait. The Lord is teaching you something, and he uses this time of waiting in BIG, BIG ways. I remember telling myself every single month we got a negative pregnancy test that I was one month closer to getting to meet the baby the Lord had just for us. And let me tell you, that Breck boy was worth every single minute of the nearly year wait to get pregnant with him. Hang in there sister, there IS light!
Okay, on a MUCH lighter note, and to sharply shift gears to much more insignificant things… I am going to try to get back in the swing of things here and I have a few posts coming up soon: 1. how I style my hair and who my go-to hair stylist is in Jackson 2. Who takes care of these eyebrows and did my Microblading… and a few more things up my sleeve if I can get it together, ha!
In the meantime, enjoy these excited little peanuts! I can’t wait to see them as big brother and big sister to our newest little one.
