Going from 3 to 4!

Have you ever had that moment where you stare at the stick you just peed on and 21731346_10154925951481717_2611790933091177517_nthought “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

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!

Cinderella On!

  1. I understand completely. One day at a time. And it flies. I have five children and eight grandchildren. I was a single mom too. That’s so nice your husband stayed home. I never had that. Be blessed.
