Oh My! 2 Babies under 2 Years Old!

 It’s been almost a year since my last entry on here. I always want to write more often, but seems to get away from me. I write because I like to. I also like to look back at what was going on as you think you’ll remember, but you won’t. I do this blog to help others. I’ve been through some wild rides and if anything, even one word, can help someone else…I want to.

I was just looking back at what I wrote last Jan 26, 2016. I had mislead people that I was pregnant as I was talking about my first born. Little did I know at that time I was actually pregnant. In this entry I was mentioning that I was NOT pregnant, but was just feeling comfortable writing about my first pregnancy. My son was around 8 mos old at the time of that writing. Well, life is a funny thing b/c I found out about a month after  that I WAS pregnant. Probably was newly pregnant while writing that.

Our first born starting solids

Well, I’m here writing now with 2 wonderful babies that are 17mos apart. Baby born in May 2015 and my 2nd Oct 2016. Oddly enough we were married in those 2 months. Yes, I married the same man twice in one year. We were married in May 2013 in North Carolina (my hometown), but then married again in his hometown in Oct 2013. Wild ride!

img_1207Boy have I changed though. I went from never wanting children of my own, to having a molar pregnancy, to wanting a whole litter of children. Once I saw the positive pregnancy stick years ago (Molar pregnancy), I knew I desperately wanted to be a mom. After having my first, I knew I wanted more babies. I just didn’t know if it would be possible. WE went through A LOT to have our first. I felt so blessed to have him. Then, our 2nd was quite a surprise. We had no idea. I was terrified at first of having 2 babies under 2 years old, but was elated as well. I look forward to sharing the drama and excitement of finding out about baby #2 next week. Hope you join in to read!

 

Lots to Learn–Come Journey with Me!

Heading to NC!

I am pleased to announce that I have just arrived in NC. Yes, it is 11:30pm and we got a super late start, but I am here, that is what counts.

Today started out a little rough b/c neither of us slept at all last night. MG was not feeling very well, so we didn’t sleep. We were going to leave at 5am (normal time for us to leave), but we decided to wait and check in w/ our family doctor to see if he needed any meds. Luckily, he did not and all is ok! Since we were still in town, we kept getting real estate calls w/ things we needed to get caught up on. We ended up leaving around noon. We actually made really good time. It is usually an 11 or 12 hour drive. Here are some pics of the Virginia Mountains. They look beautiful b/c everything is in full bloom. The lush forests seem to go from the ground to the skies. Amazing!

MG made some Mediterrean Orzo, which is fantastic (check out the tab at top–recipes). This is a cold dish, so we were able to eat it while we were driving. We had a Greek Salad for dinner that we also made and packed. This is a smart way to travel b/c you don’t eat like crap while not burning anything.

I really don’t have much to say b/c we spent the day in the car mostly, so enjoy the pics and I look forward to telling about my days back at home. Very tired–going to get sleep!
