Wow! What a year 2016 has been…I know this post is photo heavy, but it was difficult to select just a few of my favourites from 2016!
I always say this, but I cannot believe how fast this year has gone!! 2016 has by far been one of the best years of my life along with 2013, the two years my babies were born. Every year brings its share of ups and downs, good and bad, tears and smiles. Before I had my baby girl, I wondered how I could love anyone as much as I love my son, Jaxson. The heart is pretty amazing because on July 18, 2016 my beautiful and healthy baby girl Charleston Rose Elena was born and my heart grew times a million. She was born at 3:57 a.m., weighing 7 pounds 5 ounces. The moment she was born, our lives were forever changed. She has brought so much love, joy and happiness to our family. She is such a happy baby, loves to stay up late and lights up when she sees her big brother. As a mother, there is nothing better than seeing the love between your babies.
2016 has taught me so many things. It has definitely taught me that being a mom of 2 is no joke! Being a mother is the greatest gift and blessing that I have ever received. It is also exhausting and the most difficult thing you will ever do. Ever. With that, it is also the most rewarding thing you will ever do. Ever.
My children have taught me so many things this year. They have taught me the importance of always living and being in the moment. One of my goals for 2017 is to be more present and not to sweat the small stuff. To enjoy more time with my littles and less time worrying about the laundry that needs to be done or certain things that need to be cleaned or anything trivial, including people. This time with my babes just goes by so fast and I don’t want to miss a thing because I am worried about things that will always be there and will always need to be done. #momminainteasy.
2017 is a year full of new beginnings for my family! My husband is starting a new job, my brother is getting married and graduating from Medical School. Definitely a busy and exciting year ahead!
Wishing all of you a Happy and Healthy 2017, filled with love, joy and happiness!
