So the past couple months have been an exciting one for a couple reasons. I am 38 weeks today, so Sophie should be making her debut any day! I have a feeling she will be a bit earlier than the other two. And I am welcoming it! It is exhausting chasing 2 toddlers while being super huge and limited in movement haha. I was thinking last night, it will be weird whenever Sophie is Claire’s age, because I have never had a kid that age without being pregnant! Both Bailey and Claire were the same age whenever I got pregnant again haha. I am excited for Sophie to get here. She is already so loved. Everyday Bailey will come cuddle with me and give a hug and kiss to my belly and tell me how big Sophie is, and how she will come soon. She is such a good big sister. I am thankful for her sweet kind spirit. Claire is still a bit young to understand what will be coming up, but she loooooves her baby dolls. She will hold the babies tenderly and feed them pretend bottles and it is the cutest thing I have ever seen. She can be pretty spunky with her little attitude…but she also has such a sweet tender heart. She is always asking if people are okay when someone is sad and she gives hugs and kisses freely. She also loves having her nails painted! I have been so blessed with my girls. While I of course still have days where I count down to bedtime and I have lost my patience…I wouldn’t change it for the world. My kids are my life. And I cant wait to add our final little member to it. I am so looking forward to not having to pack up and move and uproot. With Bailey and Claire we moved right after they were born haha so it feels good to nest a little bit! Although it is ironic because I only just got her bed ready yesterday, so we cut it a bit close this time! With Bailey I am pretty sure I had the bed ready when I found out she was a girl. Funny how multiple kiddos can change things haha.
While we may not be moving…we do have another big life change during this time! Adam has officially opened up his own private practice. On The Mend Counseling. This has been in the background works for a while, and the stars seemed to align and we have been guided by the Lord and we have taken the plunge! We always knew it would be the end goal, and it has been Adam’s dream for years, but we never expected it to come this soon. It has been great so far! Adam has a beautiful office in a great location and is so happy. He has always had very stressful high intensity type of therapy jobs. Usually high crisis type of jobs. So ironically, while being a business owner is stressful…this is probably the most relaxed I have seen him in years haha. It has been a neat experience for me too because my background with my communications degree allowed me to be a part of this process. I designed his logo, business cards, and website. It has been a really cool project that has brought us even closer together. In fact, I remember exactly where we were when we were discussing the name for the business. We were driving to Florida for Thanksgiving in the van with the girls and listening to some chill music and just throwing out some suggestions and dreaming about what it could be like. We came up with On The Mend Counseling on that drive. Just one of those memories I smile about. (you can check out his website: onthemendcounseling.com)
So we have fun things going on! Sophie coming any day….becoming a business owner…2018 has been amazing so far! So many things to look forward to. I love my life and I am so grateful for how incredibly blessed we have been. I don’t deserve it, but I am so thankful.
I feel like so many awesome little things have happened in the last bit, but I am in a pregnancy fog haha so I will let all the bagillion pictures speak for memories themselves. 🙂
