Blog Challenge Day 5

Yep. It's already day 5 of my blog challenge and I'm still keeping up.  I'm a little impressed with myself actually.  My sister did day 4 and 5 on her blog today and it was a great post! Check it out if you have the chance.  Today has been a great day. The baby slept in past 8am, we got some cleaning done around here and around lunchtime we headed out to Target as a family (after my husband made us awesome Tuna Melts for lunch).  Rylie was so great in Target and I even ran into a dear old friend, we made plans to catch up during Christmas break and I can't wait.  Then we drove over to Starbucks and had coffee (and a Cranberry Bliss Bar) as a little family.  I love love love our little coffee dates as a family.  The three of us sitting all snuggled up in the big leather chairs at Starbucks w/ a cup of hot coffee and a treat = pure happiness for me.  I don't know how that will change with Rowan but I think we'll come to love the 4 of us just as much as we love the 3 of us.  I love little Elliot so much I can only imagine how much I'll love my own little boy!Ok, moving onto today's challenge:

Day 5 - A photo of yourself two years ago.

This photo was taken at my baby shower for Rylie (one of the 3 I had) almost exactly 2 years ago.  I think this picture is one week shy of being 2 years old.  I had the most beautiful shower and there were tons of people there that I loved.  It was a wonderful joyous day for me!  It's hilarious to me that almost exactly 2 years later here I am doing this again!  I'd have told you that you were nuts if you'd told me I'd be having another baby in 2 short years but here we are.  Having Rylie has completely changed my life. As a Mama you're constantly elated, proud, full of love yet worried, frustrated and worn out. You can have a range of those emotions all in an hour!  There is nothing better in the world though.  Rylie is my joy every single day....even on the hardest days.  It helps that I am on this journey with Jason, my best friend who has grown into the most wonderful Dad.  He definitely takes care of us, his girls, and I'm sure that little Rowan will rock our world in such a good way.  I cannot wait to meet him and complete our little family (yes, I'm pretty sure we will be done after our little man).  I leave you with a picture of the girl that came only a month and 3 days after the above picture was taken...this little girl makes my heart sing  =)
