While trying to fall asleep last nite I kept thinking of everything we need to do before Addison arrives. Not just baby things, but house things that will be easiest if we complete before her arrival.
After tossing and turning for what seemed like an eternity I decided to stop thinking about anything and everything that was stressing me out. I decided to think about things that I love, things that make me happy.
*Sipping sweet tea, reading a book on our front porch. It's so peaceful and relaxing....
*Isabella holding my hand when we are shopping....
*Sweet kisses from my baby girl. There's just something about her baby kisses that lite up my life.
*Leo raving about my dinner that I make him...or him thanking me for doing something as simple as laundry. What a sweetheart!
*Reading to Isabella. Even if it's the same book over and over....I just love seeing her face lite up when she is being read to.
*Going to church. After mass it feels like everything is peaceful and calm.
*Being pregnant. Although the first few months were so hard, it's totally worth it to feel Addison moving and to hear her heartbeat. I realize how lucky we are and that babies truly are a miracle of God's work.
I know my list is longer, but that's all I wanted to type for now. Maybe I'll start doing this more often. Especially if I'm feeling down or stressed.
What about you? What makes you happy?
