I'm not going to sugar coat it folks. The transition from one baby to two was pretty rough on me. I think had they not been so close in age, it may have been a bit easier, but none the less I found myself guilt ridden and pulled in a million different directions. I'm pretty sure that those feelings come standard when you become a parent but it still doesn't make it any easier.
So the great news is, I have finally found my rhythm!!!
I find myself more happy and relaxed these days, truly enjoying being mom to my two little ones. I am cooking again and have more creative ideas than ever. My husband and I are getting a long really well these days. (having 2 babies this close in age is a HUGE stress on a relationship. Not to mention we've only had one measly date in a year and a half)
I think the only word to describe my life is FULL!
From my heart to my home, everything is beautifully FULL. There is a huge sense of contentment that has come over me since having children. I finally feel like I found my purpose in life. I finally found what I spent my whole life looking for! Things are going so well I have even, for a split second, considered having another one. Shhhhh..........don't tell my husband!
On other fronts, I have lost 5 pounds so far towards my goal. So I still have 55 pounds to go. This week I am starting a modified low carb diet. I'm not doing anything too drastic, just cutting out bread and sugar. I'm hoping this new change will speed up the weight loss a bit. I'll check in again soon and let you know how it's going!
