oh boy, the big 3-0.
i don't have many minutes to put together anything big & prophetic about transitioning into the next decade of my life because i have two cute little boys who are doing me a birthday solid & napping at the same time. it's a birthday miracle... who knows how long it will last. but i am turning 30 & some day i might wanna look back at this day and see what i was doing. so here's a quick update.
we're into our second week of this new normal life. it's not so bad. i've managed to pack both boys up all by myself twice now & actually leave the house in a car... like a couple of legit outings. both times were successful & i'm starting to feel like this whole two kids thing might be humanly possible. parker has been a pretty good kid & often surprises me with how well he's taken to elliot. he LOVES him. loves giving him kisses & just thinks every little squeal, hiccup & grunt from him is hilarious. i can't wait until parker makes him laugh, my heart will probably jump out of my chest.
i'm still not getting a whole ton of sleep but in the world of newborns i think we're doing pretty good. elliot goes down around 9:30 & usually wakes up around 1-2 & again around 4-5. he's kinda hard to get back down after both feedings & sam usually takes one for the team & stays up with him for half an hour or so before he has to get ready for work so i can get a few extra minutes of sleep before parker's up at 7. life is starting to feel a little more routine. most days i manage to get out of my pajamas & get ready for the day & usually my teeth are brushed before noon, so i think i'm winning.
how do i feel about turning 30? well, since life has pretty much revolved around the new member of our family, i haven't really had time to dwell on it with a pity party. but honestly? meh, it's just a number. i think age is more about how you feel & act & how active you are & i plan to make this year a good one. i plan on getting back into shape, spending lots of time playing with my boys, building my business & enjoying life. i'm really excited for what this next year will bring. like, really excited. 30 will be good.
and because a post is no fun unless there are fun things to look at, here are a few pictures of what life around our house looks like lately. lots of pajamas, messy hair & downtime. can't complain about that!
