Where do I begin…
First, I am sorry you have been so neglected! But you do know when I get “free time” I’m more likely to pick sleep over writing – for better or for worse.
I have missed you though ;)
So on that note let me begin.
The rest of April, Ryan and I worked steadily getting ready for our new baby BUT we also had another special event we were preparing for – my sister’s wedding! Like most weddings these days, there are so many fun events that build you up to the official day and her wedding was no exception! From her shower, to her bachelorette, to the rehearsal and then finally the official day!! And what a day it was!! Simply perfect and one I will remember for the rest of my life! Yet 3 weeks before my sister’s big day (and three weeks before I had to squeeze into a bridesmaids dress) our little Finnegan was finally was born. He was a week late but it was by far the best birth of the three boys – peaceful and quick! His birth story is here, if anyone besides myself wants to relish it….
Then a short week after our precious third son was born, our oldest celebrated his 4th birthday!!! 4!! How did that happen so quickly? His celebration was pretty low key considering all that was going on but we had lots of fun too!
Then summer took off in full swing and it was the hottest summer I can remember but we got out with the boys as much as possible and we celebrated Declan’s 2nd birthday with another low key gathering!
So that brings us to the end of August and smack dab in the middle of our crazy busy, exhausting and joyful life with 3 under the age of 4!!Like any parent in the middle of chaos, I look forward to my “own” time again and more sleep BUT I am also trying to savour each day as much as possible. I am well aware of how quickly time passes – the days are long but the years are short.
