Third time seems to be the charm when it comes to raising Mom’s stress level. To be honest putting up a blog post is quite difficult nowadays. When Tabitha (my first child) was born I have learned a lot about baby care and just how much work taking care of a newborn really is. It is so tiring, and yet I find myself with less help than I have available when I have two kids.
Between the 10 or 12 diaper changes a day, breast feedings, cleaning up messes made by bodily functions and managing the intense sleep deprivation that comes with a baby that doesn’t sleep more than 1.5 -2 hours in a row, how draining (physically and emotionally) it can be. Not to mention the fact that the task of deciphering him cries seemed nearly impossible. Are you hungry…? Did you poop…? Are you just complaining for the sake of complaining…?
I’m still so amazed with what my body just went through. I’m amazed at how this little boy can just have so much control over me. But in spite that I’m sleep deprived I’m so thankful for my children. I love to think about all the silly things they say and do, they make me laugh… they sure can make my day. I wonder what great plans GOD has for them, what will they do. I really can’t picture them being all grown up. I really love to enjoy them as they are.. they are my world. I love them soo much and I thank God for them, they are a great blessing to me and my family. I can’t WAIT to show you guys my baby’s newborn pictures soon on the blog.
Anyway, kids may be back to school, but for me it’s still summertime. I know that some of you can’t wait for over the knee boots, big sweaters and scarves (great for you but… I’m not going to join your party just yet…) but for those of you.. who, like myself will have to be dragged into fall kicking and screaming, I thought I’d share my new dress from Light in the Box and my new happy shoes from Marbe Unique Handcraft with you. The white dress is SO very elegant and can be worn for a variety of functions– even as formal as you want it for. The dress didn’t look different in pictures as it goes on. It’s a wonderfully made dress. The fabric feels luxurious to the touch. I love the way this makes my look. Can we talk about these pom poms sandals?!!! Oh my… these are the cutest sandals I have seen in a while! I wore them out 3 times and each time multiple people stopped me on the street to say how much they like them. Figuring out how to tie them was tricky at first, but I have found the best way for me is to wrap them around my ankle a few times and then just knot them at the back or front of my ankle. Love these sandals so much! Can’t wait to bring this baby to the beach. I highly recommend!
As always, thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
