I can’t believe the first month of 2017 is finished! January was full of lots of unexpected changes and honestly I spent most of the month trying to adjust both mentally and physically. It was full of rest, lots of quiet time, and taking a little time for me before life changes AGAIN when Baby H makes his entrance into the world. With February’s arrival I’m officially in GET THINGS DONE mode. We have just a few short weeks until a baby takes over our lives and I’m feeling the pressure to get us prepared in every possible way. One of those things is getting a few blog posts up this month, and still connecting with this space. I promise to have at least a few special posts this month so be on the lookout.
This past weekend, we headed to WV one last time before Baby H arrives. Our family and close friends showered us with lots of love and gifts for our transition to parenthood. I was blown away by friends and family that traveled many hours, adjusted work schedules, and came to celebrate with us. It was a jam packed weekend and so very bittersweet as we knew the next time we would be in that place and with those people there would be a baby to pass around. So many emotions that I can’t even begin to process quite yet.
We got home yesterday evening to a mostly clean house and I started working on a to-do list full of things that need to be done this week as well as things that need to be accomplished before we have this baby. First on that list per the norm was meal planning. Honestly, I was not feeling the meal plan this week, but it’s done and we won’t go hungry, so that’s a good thing. I was going to go grocery shopping today while Husband worked, then it hit me that grocery shopping by myself would not be an easy task at 8 months pregnant when I’m supposed to be taking things easy and avoiding lifting too much. So I ran to the store for the necessities for tonight’s dinner and I will have to tackle the grocery store with Husband in tow later on. Checkout what we are eating this week below!
