You guys!
It's been forever. And it is entirely my fault, so let’s catch you up.

The last you heard, I was getting married... and I did... it was the most magical day; filled with the best people and the best atmosphere. I would say my lack of writing has been due to the fact that I have been infatuated with Newlywed life, or because how do you follow up something as sweet as a wedding... or how do you even capture your whole wedding into a small corner of the internet? 

I am going to pick all of the above, it also might have something to do with the fact that our life hasn't stopped going. 






I kept getting asked during wedding planning, "what ever will you do with your time when you no longer have to plan your wedding"? I would sit and wonder... and think... and pray for silence? But I wouldn't have an answer. I would pray for no more vendor calls, no more excessive money taken out of my account and no more long hours hoping it would turn out like my pictures on Pinterest. 

And then it was over...

And Adam and I received some very, overwhelming and exciting news... WE ARE GOING TO BE PARENTS. Yes, the shock value is still there. We wasted no time.

I know. Stop here if this is too much information for one day. Try living this. 

My first thought, I just became a wife, I am supposed to conquer this first right? What if it's really hard, what if I am a failure, what if everything changes now that we are married? It will be easy they said… fun! 

I am only poking fun, I love being married. I love being married to my best friend. I love knowing that I get to do life with one of the kindest souls that genuinely care for me. 

My next thought, motherhood. How am I supposed to be a mom, I have about a hundred and my sisters have kids so, it can't be that hard... right? Wrong. I am already learning that even while kangaroo pouching a babe, you're on their time. When they are hungry, you eat. When they are tired, you sleep. When you automatically feel the need to use the restroom, there is no, give me ten minutes to finish this project... you go.

The future is here. It's happening. I love it, but I am anxious. Will I be a good mother, will Adam still see me and his bride when I am covered head-to-toe in dirty clothes and burp cloths? Will the pups love the babe as much as A and I already do? Is our house ready for a baby? Will being go back to work be as hard as they describe? Only time will tell...  Until then, we can pray.

I hope this was a nice catch up, I know it was probably a lot of news if you did not already know, but here we are. And I am ready to take on this next journey. Stay tuned and maybe when this laziness subsides, I will fill you in on all the things that have been making my pregnancy life that much easier. 

Sincerely,
Shelbi
