March 1, 2017 in faith, family, life lately

February was a pretty good (and fast) month overall. I can’t believe it’s already March, though!

The highs:

  • Cory moved to Texas!
  • I was completely cleared by my cardiologist and have zero heart issues.
  • Tons of baby shower planning.
  • Landon’s crib is ready for him!
  • Signed Landon up for daycare.
  • LOTS of family time.
The lows:
  • Hormones. Y’all, they’re kicking my butt!
  • Lots of medical bills :(.
  • House hunting failures.
The good days definitely outweighed the bad days, but there were also some pretty low days. Adulting is hard, especially when you have so much change going on and don’t have a clue where to even begin to sort it all out. Thank God for my family, because I’d be utterly lost without them!
loving. Feeling Landon moving throughout the day. No matter what mood I’m in, it always brings a smile to my face! And then it makes me that much more anxious and excited to meet him! Ha.
contemplating. What do give up/do more of for Lent. And yes, I’m aware it starts TODAY!
smelling. My new face moisturizer. My skin has been so random with this pregnancy and it’s hard to keep all the things under control. I’m finally trying a new moisturizer and I’m loving it so far!
reading. The Bible. Trying real hard to get into a good routine with it and stick to it.
deciding. What to eat. I never in my wildest dreams imagined I’d be tired of eating and deciding on food, but here we are. Landon needs SO MUCH from me and I feel so sick when I don’t eat enough, so it’s been a challenge to mix it up and not get tired of eating the same thing all the time!
learning. To go with the flow as things happen. I’ve always been such a control-freak and planner when it comes to my life, and along the way, I’ve learned that it just makes things that much more stressful. I’m truly trying to learn to turn things over to God and not stress so much about things I can’t control. #trying
watching. All the good TV shows! Grey’s Anatomy (because duh.), Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce (sooooo good!), all the Chicago shows: Fire, Med, PD, and soon Justice, Teen Mom (#addicted), NCIS: LA. I love me some good TV.
writing. In my journal every day for the past few weeks. It’s definitely an outlet for me and it helps so much. Hoping it’s becoming a habit and I’ll stick to it on the regular!
hating. Heartburn! It’s still rearing its ugly head mostly at night and I wake up several times because of it. Ready for it to hit the road!
listening. To Pandora radio – all day every day at work.
craving. Pickles. always and forever.
planning. My baby shower! It’s going to be here so soon!
needing. To breathe. I’m trying so hard not to stress about life in general and all the things that need to be done and taken care of, but it’s hard! There’s still so much unknown.  
dreading. Money issues. Always.
wanting. My husband. It’s been several days since I’ve seen him and I just need a hug!
reminiscing. About nothing, to be honest. I just keep looking forward at what my very near future is going to be like with a newborn and figuring it all out!
eating. Anything and everything (except greasy foods)! I’m in the “eat all the things” phase of pregnancy and I feel like I seriously eat all day every day. #preggoproblems
drinking. All the time. I’m always thirsty and am always on the lookout for a drink. Sonic’s happy hour is my go-to these days haha! Half-price Route 44 drinks?! Umm, yes please!
swooning over. All the baby things!
feeling. Overwhelmed. Hormonal. Anxious. ALL.THE.FEELS.
working on. Managing my stress and hormones. It’s a full-time job.
hoping. That I’ll be a good mom to Landon and will be able to provide for him in whatever ways he needs.
looking forward to. My baby shower and our next OB appointment! I get to see Landon again after 2 months and will find out how big our boy is!
Lord, thank You for Your continued blessings in my life. I pray that I continue to turn things I cannot control over to You and trust in Your plan. Thank you for a productive February filled with lots of love in various ways. I pray that this next month provides answers and joy as we get closer to bringing Landon into this world. I pray that when he is ready, he arrives safely and healthy by Your loving hands. Please help calm my mama heart with all the “could” happens. In Your name I pray, Amen.
