Sibling Thoughts

Monday, January 8, 2018

I can't believe I'm typing the word "sibling", but it is definitely something that has been on our minds and hearts lately.
 Charlee is turning one this week and there has been a lot of talk about adding another baby to this circus. 
Not right now becuase well I'm not crazy but in the next year or two.
 The questions and thought about it that is can I put myself through another round of infertility battles. I know that we can get pregnant and have a successful pregnancy now. But will we have the same issues as last time and how to do you deal with it. Will it be completely different and we will get pregnant on the first medication cycle or will it be another five years of the whats, whens, and whys? 

Two years ago I never even thought that we could get
 pregnant or that it was even a possibility. I remember giving myself a pep talk and saying that this was it. It was the last time that I was trying 
to get pregnant the last medications and shots.
 I was done! 
Whatever happens was going to happen. Either in two weeks were going to have a negative pregnancy test and stop trying or I would be pregnant and the last five years would actually be for something... or someone! 
 But now we have the miracle that we prayed so hard and long far.
 Do you want to actually put ourselves through the process and take away from the angel that we have now. 

I really want her to have a sibling so she has that bond and connection with someone forever even after mommy and daddy are gone. Ya'll I don't know what to do. We know we want to have another baby but do we put ourselves through the fertility battles again??

Please tell me your thoughts and if you dealt or are dealing with this.....

new years resolutions 2018

Wednesday, January 3, 2018

Here we are three days into 2018 already.... Where does the time go. I wanted to take the time before the hustle and bustle of Charlee's birthday weekend gets here to document my 2018 new years resolutions. This year is different than the ones before. I will have a old year and a week later I will say goodbye to my 20's and embark on my 30's. These are the things that I hope to accomplish this year.

* This year I want to make it a priority to get healthy and down to my ideal weight. Life took over and before I knew it my body had changed a lot and not for the better. Before I got pregnant with Charlee I started working out with a trainer and lost 20lbs in a month. I want to get back into that be able to feel good about myself. 

* I want to do a major closet clean out. I trash the clothes as I lose. I don't want to get back into the habit of knowing that I have clothes to lean on. I want to spend more for better quality clothes that last. No more cheap clothes just to get me by! 

* I want to become a better mom and wife. I know that there are things that I need to work on and some of those stem from my childhood. I am working on myself so I can be better for my people. 

* Read more... I love to read a new book or two every month. I am currently reading The Unveiled Wife which will help grow my marriage more than words can say.

* Lastly I would like to grow my relationship with the Lord. 

What are your resolutions?
