Today I randomly decided to do a day in the life post. I guess I'm just increasingly aware of how I need to soak up these last few moments/days/weeks, before life changes and we switch gears into welcoming a new baby.
I've noticed that when I keep my camera out and intentionally try to catch our ordinary life and document it, life seems less mundane and definitely more sweet. The simple moments are the moments that I daily want to take note of and celebrate. When I'm photographing my kids playing blocks together, it reminds me of just how precious it is to see their relationship unfolding. Instead of taking it for granted, my gratitude is increased.
And so, here's a day in our life......
My alarm went off at 6:30am this morning. I turned it off and went back to sleep. I might be near my due date, but by golly, I still sleep- and I sleep well.
Around 7:15am, I headed into the kitchen, had breakfast and coffee and read a few of the blogs that fill up my Google Reader. I've tried to cut way back on which blogs I subscribe to, but even when I select "Unsubscribe", they still fill up my reader. Help?! Anyone???
Later in the morning we headed out to Target. Normally the kids are pretty good shoppers, but today could have been better. It wasn't anything awful- just a few tears here and there and lots of "you better cut it out" whispers from me.
Afterwards, we shopped Costco and had a quick lunch with Daddy. What a nice surprise that was!
When we got home, I put the kids down for naps, wrote a blog post for Seventh Generation (so excited to share more about that later!) and worked on my hospital bag.
2 extra large handfuls of spinach
Approx. 1 1/2 cups of apple juice
They drank up the entire thing by themselves within minutes.
I've been thinking that I might write another pregnancy update or two, before I pop. Anything I should cover? Ask me anything and I'll (with a few exceptions) answer anything!
