I can't believe it's February already. Levi is one today.... one month that is.
I haven't blogged in a while. Not so much because of having a newborn (which is hard especially having two other kiddos) but because two weeks ago this household was pure chaos! My son, daughter & husband all had the flu and it was just one of the worst weeks ever. Thankfully they are all ok now and Levi & I didn't catch it. I am finally starting to get a routine going now and Levi is sleeping much better at night so that helps me feel less sleep deprived. Having a baby in the winter is no fun! It's actually quite depressing but I'm thankful the "baby blues" didn't hit me quite hard as it did in the past. I've never had post partum depression but I did get those "baby blues", you know the ones that make you feel like crying for no reason. Sort of like when you're pregnant except you're achy, sleep deprived and sore from breastfeeding. To be honest with you labor + delivery didn't scare me, it was the post-partum that did. My post-partum experience after having my daughter was horrible. Mastitis, Thrush, An Allergic Reaction to who knows what on top of the horrible contractions you get afterwards + sleep depravation. Thankfully this time was WAY better! Not SUPER easy but MUCH better than I expected.
So I will be posting mostly about Levi and his monthly updates until I get a little more energy and time (yeah right) to get crafting again. I do have the awesome floating shelves to show you that my husband built. They are complete, I just need to accesorize them and take pictures. I would also like to do our kitchen reveal soon even though it's not 100% done but I seriously don't think it will happen this year. Appliances are EXPENSIVE! So bear with me as I try to learn how to manage my time wisely with 3 kiddos, a blog, a blog design business oh and those HUGE piles of laundry + dishes calling my name!
Motherhood is not easy but it's one of the BIGGEST BLESSINGS! I love being a stay at home mom... dirty hair, spit up stained clothes & all! :)
