thankful.

this year, thanksgiving has more meaning for me than ever before. i am so humbled by the love and blessings that i have in my life- things that we all take for granted every day.

greg and i are most thankful for this little turkey and the joy that he brings to our lives! he loves us unconditionally and greets us with smiles and sweet baby kisses every morning. 
and i can't forget the hubs... i could not ask for a better partner in life as we figure this parenting thing out together. carter is so lucky to call him 'daddy'.
 
i hope that ya'll are having a wonderful time with your families eating lots of delicious food. we are celebrating and seeing family on saturday, due to the hubs' work schedule and a no-fun stomach virus.

happy thanksgiving, everyone!!

happy birthday, hubs.

today is the hubs 29th birthday... the LAST year in his 20's :) last night we went out to have some dinner and celebrate with friends. our table had 6 adults and 3 kids and it made me laugh at how birthdays have changed around here... and we wouldn't have it any other way.
this picture is from after dinner with his parents tonight.

happy birthday, greg! you are the best husband and daddy to our boy... we are so lucky to have you! 

we love you!!

tough decisions.

i work for a local, family owned business and we hadn't made arrangements for what would happen after carter came... {mainly because i think they were in denial that i was having a baby} but we all believed that we still had a month until he arrived when i was put on bedrest and told not to return to work. but my employers have been great as i am transitioning into motherhood- they came to visit me in the hospital, and even brought us food and a gift while we were settling in at home. 

when carter was a month old, my boss and i decided that i would start working from home... but it has been more challenging than i anticipated. it's hard to constantly have my to-do list hanging over my head and i feel guilty when i am not able to get something done right away. and then i feel guilty when i'm not spending time with boys {mommy guilt is the WORST!}
with the hubs' rough work schedule and my free time few and far between {never will i ever roll my eyes again when a mother complains about not having time to shower or do something for herself}, i have been really stressed.

so the hubs and i talked and both feel that at this point, i should quit my job. i am so happy that we are able to financially allow me to be at home and focus all of my time and attention on my little family of three. they're only little for so long and i plan on enjoying every stage as much as i can.

i think this little guy is kind of happy about it...

and the other exciting thing? soon i will be able to spend naptime doing things that i actually enjoy... like blogging! :)
