She kills it in the big sister department. She is so tuned into him in so many ways. But my favorite is when we have trouble understanding his toddler-speak, we call her to translate for us. They are lucky to have each other.
Five and a half weeks ago I had a hysterectomy...it was medically necessary and I had known (for years) it was coming but it has been a very tough recovery, both physically and emotionally. I wasn't prepared to feel so much sadness and loss, my anxiety shot through the roof and I clung to everything that made my kids "little". .
My kids are getting bigger and we are moving on to the next phases of parenthood but I didn't want to let go. Moving on can be hard and scary but it is also exciting and full of adventure. I needed to step back, breathe, take time to accept what happened then be excited for the next phase of parenting. .
I am so thrilled I had the opportunity to carry some of my children within my own body, it is something we were told would never happen for us! However, being a mother is so much more than where your child grows or how they are born. I pray and hope I am able to be the best possible mother and role model for the children we have been blessed with! .
Each day brings more healing and I am getting a bit stronger and able to do a little more. I am looking forward to getting the "all clear" from my doctor in the next few weeks. In the mean time I am catch up on all my projects I have fallen behind on during recovery, especially my project 365! .
I so rarely get in the frame with this guy anymore 🤔 but nonetheless, my #mancrushmonday is always with him 😍. We went for a sunset hike-date and it was AWESOME❣️Yay for rad grandparents who babysit while we have a date night ✌🏾❤️🙏🏽✨
One of the things on our list to visit during our mini break was to take Bella to a farm. I was brought up in very rural England, living next door to a farm, and my husband too was from country Australia so fields and animals are normal to us. Apart from the zoo, our kids don't get to experience the natural beauty of countryside which is why this was important to us. A couple of animals in and she was loving life, feeding every one herself. What's best is that 1 week on, she's still talking about it...although she also talks about feeding a gorilla 🙄 #farmexperience#feedingakangaroo
