Blogmas Day 1 : How I'm Doing

Well, I feel like it's been FOREVER since I've blogged!!! These past two months have been

so hectic, so full, and so busy! As most of you know, we are now a family of six. Our fourth and final baby Camylle joined us in the wee hours on September 23rd and I can't begin to convey how so madly in love we all are. She is truly the completion to our family and we look forward to watching her grow and take her place in the family. So, how am I doing? Well, I'm glad you asked! I am TIRED. Seriously, I'm tired all the time. My day starts really early and ends quite late. I'm up to my eyeballs in laundry. Mommas of three-or-more kids, how are y'all keeping up with laundry? I swear, I just can't make a dent. The laundry is truly a mountain that is NOT moving with my mustard seed of faith! Keeping my routine has been the toughest part about adding a fourth to the mix. Newborns are on their time, not yours. I'm struggling a bit to get back into the swing of things and if you know me you know how much I love my routines and lists. But it's all good. These are the days that I will look back on with fondness. My exhaustion will be a faint memory as Camylle's giggles and coos replace them at the forefront of my mind. I truly LOVE being a Mom and I wouldn't trade this beautiful chaos for anything in the world. So, to answer your question of how I'm doing, I'm Blessed!!! I'm taking it one day at a time, allowing myself grace for adjustment, and learning new levels of patience that I never knew existed. I'm in awe. Honestly, I think I ask my husband once a week if he can believe that we are parents of four. It's been such a wild ride! I can't wait to share more with you guys. We have sooooooo much in store and much to look forward to. Although 2020 has been filled with so much pain, uncertainty, loss, and confusion, I continuously thank God for bringing us through thus far. So, before I sign out, I want to help lift those up who might feel down. God is a promise-keeper. Don't allow media, politicians, nay-sayers, or even your own family to skew your outlook and sour your perspective. If you are reading this, you are blessed!!! You are alive and everyday is a new opportunity to work at making your dreams come true. Join me back here tomorrow for Blogmas Day 2, but in the mean time enjoy these photos of my little cutie.
