What to say What to say
Life is so crazy right now :)
Work is extremely busy, having a two year old and an eight month old makes my life extremely busy, spending time with family is busy and above all that we have weddings and baby showers and birthday parties galore.
What a horrible problem to have, a successful job and a loving family and people who want to spend time with us!
I love writing in my blog. I wish I did it more. To be honest I wish I even did the daily vlogs. I do think I take a lot of pictures of my children but when I look back at old videos of Emma it just makes my heart melt every time. I don't have many videos of Matthew. It's quite an interesting tug of war within myself because when we are having wonderful times I purposely don't get the camera so I can be present and involved and not worried about the video but more worried about being a part of the moments.
I see these other mothers and it seems like they have their lives so together. They do their hair and put on a full face of makeup EVERYDAY! How is this possible? I have a house that is a complete mess, I'm pretty sure we just ran out of wipes and getting a shower is pretty much the only thing I have time for prep wise. What am I missing here? LET ALONE THE GYM! WTF? hahaha
I guess I could get up at 3am, go workout, then shower and get myself together before the kids wakeup around 5:45 but would I be happier then? Maybe, or maybe I'd just be so freaking tired I'd be stupid happy :) Then I could start messing up at work, get fired and have lots of spare time.
I took the kids to the strawberry festival this weekend with my brother and sister. It was 1000 degrees and my kids hadn't napped or eaten properly that day BUT I think it was a success. Emma loved getting on the rides and she always loves hanging out with her cousins.
We also went to our lake house for memorial day. It was our first time staying in our new house that is four seasons and actually has doors. LOVED IT! It was so nice to put Emma in her own room and have a bathtub and a working kitchen area. I think there will be many memories to come.
Emma is talking up a storm these days. Her favorite thing to say is "what's that?" hahaha. There isn't much silence anymore which I love. (most of the time) Monday i was driving home from picking them up and Matthew was crying in the back. I did my usual "it's ok Matthew" but then all the sudden Emma started singing a song and he stopped. LOVE HER SO MUCH! It was one of the cutest things I have ever witnessed in my life.
I'm not really sure what to title this post or the point of it. I'm not quite sure who I'm writing these for. I'll say just for me because just like old videos, I look back on old posts and it makes me so happy to remember things that I had already forgotten.
In the end, life is good and I am extremely blessed. The grass is always greener but I'm pretty good at irrigation :)
