Hi guys! This year sure is flying by. What is it about having babies that makes time go at warp speed? Our little man is 8 weeks old today, and Lucas is almost 2.5 years old! How?! We’re already in October and a part of me still feels like it’s last December when we found out that we were pregnant.
Not going to sugarcoat things, life has been kind of hard lately. Two kids is hard, y’all. Lucas has been acting out more often than usual with us, and Logan still only sleeps pretty much 2-3 hours at a time. I miss sleeping. This morning Brandon let me bring Logan to his office just so I could ride to get coffee by myself. It was just what I needed. It’s amazing what a 10 minute car ride by yourself can do for you when you’re constantly nursing, changing diapers, and raising babies. Thank you, hubby! 🙂
All 4 of us brought Lucas to school this morning. This was the first time Logan & I went along for the ride this year, and Lucas was so excited to show his brother off. It was so sweet. But, I went looking like the hot mess express. I haven’t washed my hair in at least 3 days. I had clothes on from yesterday that I’m pretty sure had spit up on them and possibly pee too (hi baby & potty-training toddler) and makeup on from two days ago. That’s motherhood for you, though. Some days you feel like you can conquer the world, other days you feel defeated as early as 8:30AM. But even though I left the house like that, it was so worth it to see the proud smile on Lucas’s face when he showed his brother to his teachers. Now I have tears in my eyes thinking about it. Being a mom sure is a rollercoaster of emotions.
As messy as life is right now, my heart is more full than I could have ever imagined. I know that is such a cliche thing to say, but it’s true. Before Logan was born, I wondered how could I love another baby as much as I love Lucas. But you just do. It really is like your heart just expands to make room for how much love you have for both/all of your babies. I feel like Logan has been with us forever. It is the BEST seeing how much Lucas loves his brother. Right now he calls him “Tootie boy bubble butt face” #BOYS but I never want to forget it. Seeing their relationship grow & develop is so special.
Another thing I never want to forget is all of the funny things that Lucas does at this age. Last night he tried spaghetti with squash noodles (such a proud moment because he is SUCH a picky eater) and said it was “really really good.” When he likes something right now he always says it’s really really good and it is so funny how he says it.
Right now Lucas’s favorite movie is Moana. He asks to watch it every night. He loves all of the music but is always so concerned when the “bad guy” is coming. He asks if Maui is the bad guy and whenever he describes him he always says the guy with the big muscles. It’s so amazing to watch him learn new things and just see the little wheels turning in his head. He is so smart, he really just amazes me with all of the things he picks up on.
These are all just things I never want to forget. Even though having two kids is freakin’ hard work y’all, these are by far the happiest days of my life so far. I can’t even remember what life was like before we had our babies. Now if only we could squeeze in some more time for Brandon and I and a little more sleep, it would be perfect! 🙂
*Things that make toddlers cry: Lucas was pretending to play tennis with his dad yesterday and then got upset because “Dad didn’t hit the ball back to him.” He legit cried and y’all…my husband was not even home. He was at work. But Lucas was so upset that Dad didn’t hit the ball back to him. Toddlers can be cray sometimes (all the time.)*
One thing that has really been helping me look like I somewhat have it together is the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream. This stuff is amazing. It has great coverage, helps to make my skin look brighter & more even-toned, and is super easy to put on when you don’t have a lot of time to do your makeup but don’t want to look cray. I definitely would recommend this product to new moms or anyone looking to invest in better makeup!
I’m working on a 2 Month Postpartum post right now that I’ll be posting next week. Hope you guys enjoy these & have a great rest of the week! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! XO Meghan
