2019 and Into 2020

It’s not too late for a previous year recap, right?

2019 was not easy by any means. Many aspects of it made downright not fun, stressful and overall a weird year. But one thing made 2019 the best year I’ve ever had. That one this is obviously Layton.

In July, Ben and I welcomed this amazing little man into our lives. I know you’ve heard it before, but you truly don’t know how much you can love until you have a child. Sometimes I call myself the “Reluctant Mother” because for the longest time I wasn’t sure if I wanted kids or not. Even when Ben and I first got together, and a few years into our relationship, I wasn’t sure. When I used to think about having a baby, the idea freaked me out, to say the least. I was scared of pregnancy and labor as a whole and frankly, I thought I would be too selfish to be a good mom.

Well, life has a way of making decisions for you and I can tell you none of my worries even come into play. Selfish isn’t even a word in our house anymore and I am soaking up all the snuggles, midnight rockings and loud noises I can get.

Well, maybe not the loud noises.
