Reading- I just finished Expecting Adam by Martha Beck. I really enjoyed reading this book; it was pretty inspiring & very well written. Last night I downloaded A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. This book was highly recommended to me & completely different from anything that I usually read but I am definitely excited to start it!
Hoping- That this month will be the month that I am finally pregnant. Patience is definitely not one of my strengths but throughout this year of trying to conceive I am learning that sometimes, somethings are just out of our control & the only thing I can do is be as patient as possible & have faith that it will happen. We have our first appointment at a fertility center later this month (I can't believe that I am even typing that) & my hope is that I do get pregnant this month & get to cancel this appointment. Positive thinking.
Listening to- Mumford & Sons. I just downloaded a bunch of their songs & I am loving them! Right now one of my favorite songs from them is Awake My Soul. Ah, this song is so beautiful!
Looking forward to- Seeing Kenny Chesney in concert in March & I am really looking forward to hopefully a few vacations this year :)
Working on- Not being so hard on myself. I second guess myself over pretty much everything & I know I don't give myself enough credit at all. It's almost as if I feel that I am not "good enough" at times & it holds me back. It can be so draining & this is definitely not a way that I want to continue living my life. Ever since starting this path to self-discovery, I really am learning so much about myself & I am beginning to learn how to reconnect with my authentic self. I can see the changes I have made so far & how much happier it is already making me.
Making me happy- Lately, I have been feeling really blessed that I am able to stay home with Kennadie. There are times throughout the day when I step back & can't believe that this is what I get to do every single day. There have been plenty of times where I have gone back & forth, trying to decide if staying home with her is what I should still be doing, but I really feel that I have settled in nicely to this stay at home mom thing. Of course there are good days & bad days & days where I think about what it would be like if I left every morning to go to work but I truly believe this is what I am supposed to be doing & I really can't imagine doing anything else.
Favorite song-We are never ever getting back together by Taylor Swift. Ha, I love when she sings this! She tells me all the time that she wants to see Taylor Swift in concert. So cute!
Favorite thing to do at school- Play with friends. Of course :)
Wants to be when she grows up- A princess!
Something new she is doing- She started writing her name a few months ago & is getting pretty good at it now. She has been adding, spelling, & writing a bunch of different words!
Favorite book- Pinkalicious. These books are cute.
Fave toy-Barbie dolls. She really doesn't play with barbie dolls that much but she loves cutting their hair :)
Fave activity to do with mommy-Play with her "guys" & paint.
