Ya’ll….I took a mini timeout to get my life back together here. We hired a new nanny since I’ve been without for several months and I was burning out…BIG TIME burning out! My postpartum depression was really starting to dictate how my days were and having this small lease on life again has been so uplifting…I’m finally a good mom again.
So in other news the boys turned 7 MONTHS! I can not believe I’ve been a mommy for 7 months. How great is that?! They are just so miraculous and true to form every time they turn another month they surprise me by showing me something new. This time Baby B was holding his own bottle…shortly followed by Baby A doing the same later on. Then Baby A showed me that he knew how to “play” with the fun bits on his activity jumper! How in the world?!
It was a Saturday and absolutely gorgeous out. Not too hot, not too cold, just right said Goldilocks. And I decided to pack us all up, dog included, and head to a local park! This, my people, is a HUGE deal. I mean…we don’t get out much. Baby B is extremely needy and dramatic…but sweet as hell! And Baby A just takes it all in stride until he gets hungry and then he shits the bag. The husband has zero patience and the dog isn’t leash trained very well. So…this as I said was a huge undertaking on my part.
I made us a picnic, got the car all packed up and ready to go, and off we went. We walked around, the babies had things to look at and after about a 2 mile walk we stopped in a shaded area to feed the dudes and hang out. It was a dream. Seriously. So much so that the husband, with tears in his eyes, proclaimed, “This is one of the happiest days of my life.” Success.
Don’t you just love moments that end up working out for the better? Life is getting easier. Slowly but surely. And I dabbled a bit in the alcohol department this weekend and didn’t wake up with a hangover because this girl had it under control! BAM!
