It’s hard to believe we have been a family of four for over two weeks. These maternity photos at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival are extra special because I realize it might be the last time I’m rocking a baby bump. We are undecided if we want to have another child but I’m thinking two might be all I can handle. The past two days I have been solo watching the boys for the first time and holy struggles. I’m covered in spit up, haven’t brushed my teeth or hair today, ate lunch standing up over the sink while yelling “no Logan” about 1000 times as he threw half his lunch on the floor. Then I spent half of Logan’s nap time nursing Mason. Thank goodness my best friend from North Carolina is ordering us dinner to be delivered tonight because dinner prep would be an extra struggle today.
I really should be cleaning up that disaster kitchen, making my bed or doing laundry but I decided to devote a little time to writing on this space. Self care is so important and self care can mean something different to everyone. For me, it means taking time to write on my blog and create content because this is what makes me happy right now. It also includes eating healthy and soon it will include working out. Motherhood is tough and we are all just trying to do the best. It is important to remember to find what self care you need in your life and make sure you get at least thirty minutes of that a day or find a way to multitask it into something else you are already doing. I am not sure how fitness will fit into my new life when I’m cleared to work out again but I will find a way to prioritize it each day.
I don’t have as much free time with two to be as active on social media but I will still be updating this space as much as possible. I have a birth story coming soon to the blog! Follow along on my Instagram if you want more life updates!
