Grateful.

I am beyond grateful for so many wonderful things.

I'm sitting here looking at his cute sleepy face and I'm overwhelmed with love and gratitude. Hudson has brought a new look on life that I am excited to figure out. I am looking at things differently with him here. Our lives have definitely changed.  

So far it's not in big ways just in small ways. We have to consider him and what he needs before we plan anything. The number one thing that has changed is time and timing.

I used to be able to get ready and out the door in a half hour…. ha. I haven't figured out his feeding schedule enough to get out the door within 2 hours. I had been doing pretty good... then I adjusted it for what I thought would be better and it wasn't!

He went from happy self scheduling perfectly to a fussy tired and hungry all the time baby. I'm grateful in the last 2 days he hopped right back into his happy baby mode. I bet he is pretty happy about it too.

So now I have a baby that sleeps 3-6 hours between feedings and wakes up every morning between 6:15-7.

I knew he was perfect but letting me get some sleep really makes him even cooler.

So today

I'm grateful for my little man.

I'm grateful for a loving and supportive husband.

I'm grateful I'm almost all healed up.

I'm grateful I'm getting sleep.

I'm grateful I'm NOT pregnant.

I'm grateful for my “tribe” and all the support and love they give.

I'm grateful for coffee.

I'm grateful for this new chapter we've started.

I'm grateful I love my life.

 

I hope you have a grateful kind of day too <3

We Finally Figured it Out...

We're pregnant.

Just a couple of videos to fully explain the thoughts and emotions that went through both of our heads as this whole process began.....  

the first one is minutes after I took the pregnancy test.

I'm pretty sure I took 4 more tests before I really believed what was going on...

It all just happened so fast. We started "trying"/ not preventing pregnancy only 3 weeks prior. I'm beyond grateful how fertile I am but doesn't make it any less shocking!!!

This second one is me telling Michael! I didn't get nervous until I hit record and out the phone on top of the fridge.  

 

 

This is what is sitting on the counter when I tell Mike... I didn't say the words but I showed him.

Soon as I took that first video in a daze and in shock I went to Target to see if I could find a cute way to tell Mike. I don't know how people wait and do something big, like a photo shoot, because there was no way I could've waited any longer than the six hours that I waited for him to get home. After I got the cute little booties, blanket and pacifiers I went ahead and made the little watercolor sign. I wanted something cute that he could read so I wouldn't have to talk.  I also wanted the date that I told him to be on there so that we couldn't forget.
