This past weekend has been crazy busy and I’m finding the time to write this as I watch my littles sleep. I’m so thankful for all of the opportunities that have opened up for us over the past several weeks, it seems only fitting to talk about them with y’all! Living out in the country has its perks but it’s also really hard especially when you’re pregnant with your third child and you aren’t surrounded by your family. I’ve been struggling with getting all of my work accomplished (because I work from home), keeping the kids happy and my house happy. I, legit, started praying for some guidance in this area and have finally found some resolve. I found activities for the kids to take part in, vacation bible schools, karate, pool days, play dates and library adventures, which help us all remain happy and entertained without having to travel over an hour to a larger town.
I’m at the point in my pregnancy where I hate to travel and unless it’s a mandatory prenatal visit, it ain’t happening y’all! We are also in the process of buying a new car. We started searching months ago and with several almost purchases, my frustration has been out of this world. Finally, a little less than 6 weeks before our 3rd baby is due, we found our next vehicle. It’s been a huge relief and I am so thankful that the search is over. I’m ready to close the deal and get our sweet sugars car seat in there. I’m also going to pack a bag for myself, Derrek and our kids to keep in the back just in case I go into labor and we aren’t home. Just knowing that this is happening gives my mind such peace, it’s hard to explain but I’m so glad it’s finally here.
I’m so happy that I was able to document this pregnancy, I didn’t hardly take any pictures during my first pregnancy and with my second, I did a little better but still. Having the memories on my blog makes it easy to look through and I’ll be able to show little SRS once she is bigger. Yes, she has a name and no we are not telling, we never tell our kids names until they are born. Which frustrates my mother to the core but, I love sharing that moment once the baby is born! It’s just really special being able to keep it between Derrek and myself until we meet our newest addition for the first time. I’m really happy with where I’m at at this point in my life. It’s not picture perfect but a lot of hard work has been put in to get to this point. I’m so thankful for the ability to grow mentally and physically and always have a better day than yesterday.
