A new goal

Some moms are meant to be stay at home moms, so moms want to work. The joke while I was in college was that Justin kept telling me to go to school to make him a stay at home daddy. I thought I wanted to work. I was always a career minded person with strict goals ahead. I knew what I wanted to be and was slowly going that way. Maybe one day I will continue that dream/goal. For now, I want more than anything to be at home with my girl. Justin doesn’t necessarily want to work, but I think out of the two of us, I need to stay home. My heart just isn’t into a career right now. My heart is with that little sassy girl everyday. I have many ideas on how to make that happen, and I’m working on it slowly. It’s so much harder than I thought it would be. Damn bills. Growing up is not fun on some levels and life is not cheap. But I have a new goal now, and I will not stop trying until I reach it. I want to stay home and raise my little girl, and I will. Soon, I hope.

Two teeth!

    Miss little Jo threw a party the other night at 5:00am. Mama is not a morning person! She was just laughing and carrying on in bed. I figured out that she was celebrating her second tooth! I could throw a party myself, teething is not fun. I’m loving watching this little girl grow up. Time is flying but I’m so lucky to be her mommy. ❤️

Music class!

I am making a strong effort to introduce Savanna to new things as much as I can. One thing I signed us up for was a baby music class! So fun! There are not a whole lot of babies in the class, which is great for her. She is not around a lot of babies all of the time, so I want to slowly show her more and more people. Savvy enjoys watching and listening most of all. She’s been taking it all in each time we go and she is slowly getting more comfortable. Every week she gets a little more vocal and a little more active in class. I’m loving watching her grow and see her little personality grow! This mom thing, it’s pretty amazing!!

I can admit when I’m wrong…sometimes :)

I always heard people say that when you have a baby you change. I never believed that. I thought you were always the same, just had another little human to take care of. I grew up not really set on having children. I thought if it happened, ok, but if not, I was ok too. I didn’t have small cousins, or siblings. I wasn’t really around a lot of small children at all, so I was ok without it. Boy was I wrong. When my husband and I decided we would start to try and have a baby, I was so nervous! One part of me said this will be great! The other part said, what are you getting yourself into! But, I felt that that was the next step in my life. I was starting to feel that if I was going to have children, now is the time. I know many people who struggled to get pregnant, but I never thought it would be me. I never thought it would bother me if we couldn’t get pregnant. I think it was probably 5 or 6 months into trying that I was just getting sad. I was so sad every time I took a test and it was negative. I knew then that I wanted a baby more than I ever thought. I was attached to the idea and I wasn’t stopping until it happened. And then, I got the positive test. That day was a whirlwind! The whole 9 months I was just an anxious ball of mess. I didn’t really connect with my baby through the pregnancy. I knew I loved my baby and I couldn’t wait to me her. I played music for her, talked to her and all the fun stuff. But it wasn’t until she was placed on my chest until I really truly realized that my life was changed forever. This little girl changed me. I am a completely different person than I was back then. I want […]

Sunday Funday

Valentine’s Day was yesterday! It was also Sunday. My family day. My rest day. We spent the whole day with all sorts of different family members. We went to my sister in laws gender reveal party. It’s a boy! That makes 4 boys for her. So crazy! Then we spent dinner with my mama. We had a great day, full of love. Wouldn’t have changed a thing. The best family and making great memories. ❤️

Working a Saturday

I work selling furniture. Some days I really like it, some days I really, really don’t. I’ve been doing this for 7 years. Ugh. I have worked every weekend since I started the job, unless I have requested off. When I got pregnant, I had every intention of continuing that schedule. Although it sounded horrible, the baby wasn’t going to be in any sports or events that I would really need off for. This would give daddy and baby bonding time. As the end of my maternity leave got closer and closer, I realized I could not be away from my girl all weekend. I needed a family day. Justin and I work different schedules, so we never have a day off together. I decided I wasn’t working Sunday’s anymore. Luckily, my job agreed. I work 100% commission, so it really wasn’t hurting anyone but me to take more time off. While I do love hearing the stories about Daddy Daughter Saturday’s, I wish I was there. I miss her so much on that day, maybe even more than the other days I work. Although, I miss her like crazy every day I’m not with her. My long term goal is to be a stay at home mom. I never in a million years thought I would want that! I always thought I would be the career woman striving for an amazing future at a extremely productive company. I want all of that still, but I want to be the best mom to Savanna even more. She means more to me than all the money in the world. I hope my days of working Saturday’s are getting closer to being over. I’m enjoying watching this little girl grow and I don’t want to miss a thing!
