Have you ever had that moment where you stare at the stick you just peed on and thought “oh my goodness, we are so not ready for this”? Ethan and I had that very moment in January of this year. As time goes on, you think, “we got this” and you kind of forget that in just 9 months your life completely changes.
Needless to say, as we rolled into the driveway from the hospital, my heart started to beat just a little bit faster. Thoughts of doubt and anxiousness came creeping in, oh lets be real, they came barreling in like a freight train. But with everything, you learn a little bit each day
and get better at surviving. It wasn’t until day 4 of being home that I let Ethan leave me to go work at the store. For some reason I felt like my whole world was going to fall apart if he walked out the door. Ethan checked in every hour and with so much mom pride, I was able to tell him that both kids were still alive and that I had not fallen apart yet! #momsuccess!
So as we have grown from a family of 3 to 4, I can honestly say that I have lived the saying, “God does not give you more than you can handle”. He is truly with you at all times and has been an immense source of comfort for Ethan and I. With that being said, keep sending prayers our way as we keep wading through this transition. A big shout out to all of our family, as they have been an immense help. Ollie was able to spend time with both
of his grandparents as we labored and were at the hospital. To be honest, I don’t think he missed us at all! He is still embracing the fact that baby D goes wherever we go and that no, we can’t leave him at home!
So if you ever feel overwhelmed with doubts and anxiety, just know that tomorrow is a new day. A chance to start fresh and new with more #momsuccess stories to get under your belt! Just breathe, pray about it and persevere!
