It’s such a relief that we finally announced our pregnancy. It was really hard for me to hide this time around. Not just because I started showing very early, but because the exhaustion and anxiety over this pregnancy has been rough on me, and it’s been hard not being able to open up about it with all of you. So, I actually kept a journal of sorts over the past couple months where I jotted down what I was feeling once a week or so. I’m gonna share that here on the blog soon. I just haven’t had a chance to go through and edit it yet. And I tend to rush to get things up on my blog that I haven’t properly edited. So I’m gonna try to be better about that.
One thing I’m anxious about in terms of bringing another baby into the house, is poor little Owen. It might sound silly to some of you, but his life has totally changed since we brought Molly home and sometimes I can’t help but feel bad for him because let’s face it, life is just a bit more hectic when a toddler is in the house! For example, on Sundays, I used to snuggle up on the couch and nap midday or binge watch TV. Well I would binge watch TV and he would just sleep cuddled up in my arms. And that just doesn’t happen anymore. It’s impossible to do that because I have to take care of Molly (trust me, I’d love to spend an entire Sunday with my poochie on the couch again). So this morning, a friend stopped by for an hour to watch Molly so we could take Owen on a nice walk and spoil him a little bit. We took him to the dog park too! I just know that when the second baby comes, Owen’s life will drastically change once more. And I want to try to get as much quality time in with him before I’m completely swamped with a toddler and infant.
Can some of you relate to this? I’m sure those of you with pets can. Feeling terribly for your pets once kiddos come into the picture? What do you do to make your pets feel special? I just don’t want Owen to think that he’s not still important to me! Because I love him dearly!
I also want to share my outfit details with you guys as well! The black wrap dress I’m wearing is so cute and ridiculously comfortable. I could basically sleep in it it’s so comfy. And it’s under $50 which is great! If you read the reviews on Nordstrom, you’ll see that everyone seems to love this dress. It’s just a great everyday go-to dress to throw on and look cute, but be comfy. I also love that you could totally dress it up with heels and a statement necklace, or it could be dressed down like I’m wearing it today. It’s just a really versatile dress! It’s non-maternity, I’m not quite in maternity clothes yet except for pants sometimes. And you guys might know from my 1st pregnancy, that I try to wear non-maternity clothes that work for pregnancy over maternity clothes so I can wear them after the pregnancy as well! It saves money! Oh and this would also be a GREAT breastfeeding friendly dress FYI!
My boots are from Sole Society. And they’re such a great bootie to own! I own quite a few pair of booties like this, and I could never figure out why some of them didn’t work with dresses. I would see all these other bloggers wear them with dresses and think they looked so cute, but on me I felt like my leg looked super short and stumpy. Recently I realized that the difference is the heel of the bootie! If you want to wear a bootie with a dress, or if you want your legs to look longer in jeans, you really need to get one with a higher heel. And the great thing about a bootie is that the chunky heel is still really comfortable even if you go with a higher heel! So that’s my fashion advice for the day, hopefully it will save you guys buying multiple pairs of boots like I did! The pair I’m wearing have a great heel that’s still comfy! They come in a few colors too.
My scarf is by Free People and I love it because it’s so oversized! I have it wrapped a little bit weird in these pictures so I feel like it doesn’t show just how cute it is! I also think the tan color is great too.
Anyways guys, I hope you have a great day! We just got home from our walk with Owen and after I’m done with this blog we’re going to clean up around the house, and then meet up with some friends for a late lunch/early dinner. And then of course when we come home, we’ll take Owen on another nice long walk! But with Molly this time!
