6 months Half a year

Half a year are you kidding me? Where did it go? I blinked and I swear 6 months went by! There is so much going on in our house, but first let me tell you about sweet Lily Grace. I guess maybe I should let everyone know her name is Lily Grace, not Lily lol! Apparently I did not tell everyone (not even my Dad)! He just found out last week. She has no middle name. I really hope Lily Grace sticks because I LOVE the double name (though we often say Lily). My little pea nut is getting big. She is still exclusively breast feeding. Yep that means nothing else, no food yet. She is so content and I feel NO need to rush anything. I wish I could keep her just like this forever! My Dr is okay with it too so double bonus (plus she has no teeth so we are good)! He said to try an introduce food by 7.5 months and it does not matter how often or how much. She is a happy baby who LOVES to be held! I am truly blessed to have been called to be this precious baby girl’s Mommy! I can remember like it was yesterday when I found out I was pregnant. Even though I did not fully embrace it from the beginning, I can’t not imagine my life with out her.

If you have not heard I also have started back college (and full time)! At the end of the summer I will have all 60 hours of pre requisite classes to go into the RN nursing program for my BS. Hopefully I can get in as it is pretty competitive! So I have 3 kids under 4 years old, nursing a baby, in school full time, room Mom, and training to run the half marathon in January (and I have lost all my weight from Lily Grace). This season in my life is VERY busy, but it is where I choose and want to be. I have never taken the easy route in life and I am always up for a challenge.

Jackson and Ava are loving school! Jackson is in pre k and going 5 days a week until noon. Ava is in the same pre school going two days a week. Jackson is like a sponge soaking in everything and thriving in school, I could not be happier with where they both are at! Jackson has played tball the last two years, but decided to play soccer this season. He is really enjoying it and I am proud of him for trying something new. Ava is back at Little Gym and she is like a hamster set free in a cage of toys.

It feels like it has been a long time since an update! I love reflecting each month. I am complete ah of my life, God has blessed me, God is good!
