I'm Back Baby!

My husband doesn't like when I'm pregnant, probably because I don't like him much when I'm pregnant. I am not nice. I don't feel well. I am hormonal. Everyone and everything is striving to royally piss Mama off and doing a darn good job at it. When I got pregnant with Evalyn we had only been married a few months. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to get pregnant. All I ever wanted since I was 15 was to have a family and be a stay-at-home mom. (My mother thought I was crazy and probably still does) But then...I got pregnant. Oh gracious, I dislike being pregnant in a big way. I LOVE and am SO grateful and BLESSED to be able to get pregnant at all when several of my friends have and are struggling with having a child, but man I don't feel good for 90% of it. When you even annoy and don't want to be around YOURSELF you have issues.

Josh and I will be married 3 years on May 1st and I have been pregnant for half of it. The poor guy! Someone give the kid a medal! I really just want to talk about how amazing it feels to not be pregnant right now.

It rocks. Slam dunk. Period.

I super love my babies and Jack is a cake walk compared to Eavie but his gestation was hard on me. Church this past Sunday was a joy for the first time in months and months. I was social again! I wanted to talk to people and enjoyed showing off my baby. Conversely, I felt like a crabby hermit that got progressively more hermity and crabby as the pregnancy continued. I didn't want to talk or be talked to but then I would come home and cry about being lonely and not having any friends. I feel like my self-confidence is coming back. I remember feeling like this right after Eavie was born, but it was short-lived as we were so sleep-deprived, I didn't lose any baby weight, and I was working at home so I secluded myself from the world in general. Now that I am losing weight (down 27 pounds already!) and am not going back to work I feel like the world is my oyster! (That's a weird phrase by the way) So...this post was really rambly. I just wanted to say I am back baby!

Let's try this again...

One of my New Year's resolutions is to keep a blog...again. I am making a goal with myself to update at least once a week. Hopefully I will get in a good groove and will be able to do more, but let's be honest, I'm not that interesting and don't have a lot to say ;)

As a brand-new stay-at-home mommy I have found myself simultaneously with no time on my hands to do anything more than the essentials and lots of thinking/dreaming time while nursing our newest addition, Baby Jack. Pinterest has infected my life and thanks to internet on my phone, I spend most of my nursing time scrolling through pins and getting wonderful ideas of things I will never have the time or energy to do! For those who don't know (hi mom and dad!!) Pinterest is a website where people can share and organize ideas for anything and everything. Check it out, but beware of the addictive nature.

In other news my wonderful, amazing better-half has recently been offered a great promotion opportunity and after agonizing decisions we have decided to accept. This is bitter-sweet for me as many know we were planning on moving to Florida in the next few months. His new position is Assistant General Manager at his current Firehouse Subs store and later this year he will be promoted again to General Manager when his boss opens the new Firehouse Subs in Provo, UT. Josh really loves his job and the people he works with and he is GREAT at it. That, coupled with the fact that I can now stay home with my babies if I choose to, is what prompted us to stay. So for now we are just going to see how things go with Josh's new store and take things one day at a time :)

-Oh and keep me honest people, if it's been awhile since a post hound me! I really want to keep this resolution!
