Updates // Still Here


I always do this. I always get too busy. Too busy for everything, when in all reality I'm not that busy at all. I just need to learn to make time. Time to see the sunrise and sunset. Time to smell my freshly bathed toddlers hair. Time to feel his breathes on me as he falls asleep. Time to be there in the now instead of just going through the motions. The motions aren't enjoyable. The being there is.

Here are just a few bits and pieces of my thoughtful brain on this lovely wednesday night, hopefully your amused:

I've started working again, so that has affected our family routine and definitely has been an adjustment, but we have been pretty conquering. Alex has been doing super well with it and it makes me so happy because I was so concerned that it was going to be such a battle. I'm grateful it's not. Also, with that, I'm going to be starting school this fall and I have finally decided what I want to do with the monetary side of my life and I am happy and satisfied with my choice. I want to become a graphic designer so I start my two year program for my bachelor's degree this fall! Woop!

We have started potty learning, where we do it when he wakes up from nights and nap and try to see if he will use it during the day. I've been really proud of him and just trying to not push it. So, I started using pull-ups instead of cloth diapers and I think I may buy a box of regular diapers as well and just go back to that because for the business of our lives, it works easier for our family. Thankfully, my loving husband supports whatever wild decision I make. So, go cody! Also, Alexander is almost 18 months old (what? seriously guys) and he is just the most spunky creature ever. Lately I've been just taking pictures with my phone, but I'm going to start trying to take out my camera more and take more photos of my sweet love and capture him. He is just a ball of everything lovely and I love him with all my heart. He is growing into such a sweet and special young boy.
