I finally got jonah's birth story written up on the blog! there's a direct link in my profile if you'd like to read it 😊 i've loved all my labor and delivery experiences -- it's truly my favorite part of pregnancy! there's nothing like birthing a child. it's strange and weird and beautiful.
My mom and i are on the way to florida to visit my grandparents. that means i get to go to the beach. ☀️✨🌊🏄🏼♀️i’m in my third year of living in iowa, which means i’ve had two iowa winters.❄️☃️i’ve been to the beach zero times in the last four years. that math is not good math. i never really appreciated all of our trips to the beach when i was little, but after experiencing two iowa winters i can’t tell you how many times i have longed for the beach. my hair gets gloriously wavy and my freckles make a grand appearance and i reapply sunscreen approximately nineteen times and it is wonderful.💛🙌🏻☀️ here’s a scene from packing last night. i plan on wearing this cheeky t-shirt a lot this week (even though it is missing the comma 🙄) bring on the sunshine state! ☀️
I can’t begin to express my love for this little girl!! she changed our lives completely and i wouldn’t change the last two years for nothing in the world!! i thank god for the opportunity to be her mother and i pray that i continue to be the mother she specifically needs me to be!! we were going to get pictures of her taken but why spend money on that when we can capture our own memories!! daddy didn’t do too bad with the camera either, they came out beautiful!! happy birthday to one of my best friends, my everything, 1/3 of the 3 people who i live for!!! i pray you enjoy every minute of it!! love, mommy!!! #2ndbirthday#whoohoo#biggirlstatus#toddlermom
