Here we are staring at the end of my leave. I have all of September off and then I head back. To say I am not looking forward to it is an understatement. I can not believe I have been out of work since the end of April. Even more I can not believe I have a 3, almost 4 month old little girl. It’s still mind-blowing. In a good way. I have absolutely no desire to go back to work I want to be a SAHM to Little Miss and a SAHW to Mr. Big Truck. Sadly that is not an option right now. Soon though. Soon it will be and I can not wait!
I sit here and think about my life and it has changed DRASTICALLY! Mr. Big Truck and I were talking not to long ago how when we first met I flat-out told him I never wanted to get married and if I didn’t have kids I would be okay with that. Now I sit here a wife and a mom and I realize I have NEVER been happier. My life FINALLY feels complete and I could not be happier. There is not a day that goes by that I do not sit back look at my little family and just smile.
People say marriage and a baby changes things. Did it? Yes to a point. I have noticed I do not have the time or the patients to deal with drama. I can not and will not stand negativity around me and my family. Things between Mr. Big Truck and I have never been better! Mr. Big Truck and I were only together 5 months when I found out I was pregnant. We were only together 8 months when we got married. We were only together 14 months and married 6 of those moths when Little Miss was born. Has things moved fast? Yes but we are in such a good place and I could not have asked for a better man to be the father of my little girl and the husband I have. He is an amazing man and I have so so lucky and blessed to call him mine.
Relationships have changed in my life. I have come to realize who my real friends are. I have come to find out who and what matters most in my life.
Life with an infant is amazing. There is never a dull moment and there are many many laughs and even a few tears along the way. We have come to realize just how great we have it with Little Miss. She sleeps all through the night, goes to bed with no fussing and eats like a beast! I really can not and do not complain at all!
Other than adjusting to being a family of 3 life has been really good! I have started working out again however my workouts are nowhere near what they used to be and surprisingly I am okay with that! I recently did BodyCombat for the first time in over a year and all I can say is WOAH! It kicked my butt! Not gonna lie I loved it. Typically my workout consists of a 2.5-3 mile walk 5 days a week and I do push ups over Little Miss and squats holding her. I am going to start to do sit-ups with her on my shins as added weight. I also will start doing hovers with her under me. Good reason to hold it right? #fitmommovement
Mr. Big Truck and I are getting ready to do a cleanse and then do a program called lean in 13 through AdvoCare and we can not wait! Start date is Monday the 8th! I can not wait to see what it does to my body! I am back in my pre-baby clothes for the most part however I would like to tone up and lean out some more. We are also joining in on a $1,000 transformation challenge. I am excited!
The girls. They are nuts! I love those little fur balls! They have been so so good with Little Miss and I could not be any happier with how they have adjusted. Rylie is so gentle and patient with Little Miss and will go up to her and sniff her and then lick her and walk away. Zoe really can not be bothered with Little Miss unless she is crying. By crying I mean full on deaf con five melt down.
So yeah life is good!
