Life Lately

Wow! It's been a while since I've written a proper update on here. I've gotten in the bad habit of quickly updating small moments on my Instagram and not taking the time to sit down an actually write a blog post. Life is so full right now and I absolutely love this season we're in. Life with an seven-month-old is busy and magical. I've finally found my calling with motherhood and it's just so incredibly rewarding.

The other day Alex & I were discussing how we never say we're bored anymore and he's right - we don't! And I'm really glad. Our little one never gives us a dull moment. It's great. Yes, sometimes we need a break but that's the funny thing about having a kid. Even when you finally get that break you still miss them! It's such a weird feeling.

Being a parent can be hard; that's a given. Alex & I get tired, we both need our alone time, etc but thankfully we are really good at giving each other what we need in order to feel sane. Sometimes that looks like Alex taking the reigns while I lay in bed and watch TV for an hour or me getting up early so Alex can sleep in. It's a give & take and it's really nice to know that we have each other's backs.

As far as motherhood is concerned, I'm still learning how to cope with the anxiety I get whenever he cries. This has been something I've experienced since he was born and it's a strange feeling. I want so badly to fix whatever is troubling him and when I can't automatically fix it for him, I get very anxious. The other day Alex asked me if it's gotten any better, and honestly, the only thing that's changed is that I know how to manage it a little better. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually. Fingers crossed.

My favorite part about being parents (so far): is that whenever we're ever having a bad day, a smile from our sweet boy makes all our troubles disappear. And his laugh! Oh my goodness - it's the best sound in the world!


  1. I don't follow anyone on Instagram so am happy to see you here again!! I've missed your updates and it is fun seeing Olive peeking out from under the bed! Love to you all!!

    1. It can be hard to find the time most weeks but I really want to make it a point to start blogging again. I'm glad you noticed little Olive under the bed. Sending love your way! I'll try my best to update more often.
