We had so much fun this past weekend celebrating our little ladys 2nd Birthday!! I’m loving every second of this chapter of life I am in. Most days I’m completely lost on how to parent this sassy, super independent, head-strong girl I’ve got here but even on those hard days, I’m still so thankful to be her mama. And so thankful she forgives me when I royally mess up! I’ve decided to keep my letter to Hayden off the blog and just send them straight to her email – some things I really feel like are best just kept between us! But I will say… Hayden, you make me more and more proud as the days pass! I love you, my girl.
Yesterday I celebrated my 24th Birthday! Some days I feel much older than I am. Having a Husband nearly 6 years older than myself helps with that one LOL. And then there are days where I think, “THERE IS NO WAY I’M TWENTY…”. Yesterday was one of those, there is no way I am 24 years old today. But, it was a good day. These days I’m enjoying and finding the beauty in the simpler things in life. When my little lady wakes up with a smile and a “Maaaaa!” which is code for, “Please, get me out of this crib”. We enjoyed Starbucks Salted Caramel and Hayden, a blueberry muffin. Then headed over to Auntie’s to play with chickens and cut out Monkey’s for Nash’s Baby Shower. All day I was flooded with calls, text messages and social media notifications from all the people I love. It was the best 🙂
Then little miss sassy pants went with her cousins, Auntie and Uncle Coy to a birthday party while me and the Hubs headed out to dinner. The Melting Pot is where we ended up. It was my first time and it was DELICIOUS. I do believe it’s my new “special occasions” favorite!!
On the life update side. We are still trying to get settled and unpack and organized. It’s stressful. And although I say all the time that I was not meant to be a SAHM, I am enjoying my (kinda) break from work and my time with Hayden. I like slowing down with her. Park days. Morning coffee dates. Nap time blogging ;). Reading. and all the moments in-between.
