bump day – 22 weeks

22-Weeks

17 Weeks to go!!!!!!! Yippeeeee!!! I'm trying not to turn into that whiney pregnant lady, and really wanting to enjoy this time but WOW my hips and back HURT. This baby is so. low. Do you see how low she is in that picture?? I mean wow. You know that feeling at 35-40 weeks where you ache like crazy "down there"? That's all the time for me now at 22 weeks. I desperately want her to move up and take some pressure of my hips. When I get in the floor to play with my babies I can barely get up. … [Read more...]

Day-24

Every stage is difficult for it's own reasons. Don't try to deny the fact that it's hard. This goes right back to the Mommy measuring stick we talked about, there isn't one. When you think that your life seems so much harder than someone else's, trust me. Their kid isn't perfect. Their life isn't perfect. We all have those REALLY hard days. I've had several of them lately. My 2 year old has been rough and my 1 year old cries a LOT. That's just life. It's the SEASON I am in, and I'm sure there … [Read more...]

They are really starting to play together. And fight. And love each other. And fight some more. They play games. They make believe together. They chase and kiss and hug and tackle. It's so fun to watch them enjoy each other and start learning how to really share. Share their time and love with Mommy & Daddy. Everything I dreamed of when having sisters. I'm so thankful for them and how close they will be.  I cherish these tiny moments of joy, and know that in 30 seconds they will both … [Read more...]

Day-22

“For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!” 2 Corinthians 4:17 I really am not calling motherhood a "trouble", but when you are parenting tiny ones it is tough. But it won't last very long at all. Cling tight to this season and pour Jesus into them. THAT outweighs the dirty diapers. And our dirty diapers weigh a LOT. ---- Follow along with my "31 Days of Messy Motherhood"! I will … [Read more...]

Day-20

STOP COMPARING YOURSELF!!!!!!!! What you are usually comparing to is someone else's "highlight reel".  You know those moms that seem to have it all together? They don't. None of us do. We each are great at our own thing, so don't try to compare your weaknesses to someone else's strengths! Just stop! You're a fabulous mom just the way God created you. Embrace your strengths and put down the measuring stick. ---- Follow along with my "31 Days of Messy Motherhood"! I will post bits of … [Read more...]

It's been an interesting week of "re-entry" back into real life after 4 days away. I haven't been away from motherhood for that long since I started this journey, so as relaxing as it was...it was a weird adjustment coming back. No one cooked my breakfast for me. Or made my bed. And I got slobbered on when I was hugged.  Then the server that hosts my blog crashed and I looked at a horrible "server not available" screen for almost 24 hours. STRESS-ME-OUT. I've poured my heart and soul into … [Read more...]
