Time is moving so swiftly, yet I feel to be the speed of a turtle right about now. My energy level this pregnancy is totally different. Many have told me that I need to rest, but I just keep going. I always feel like there is something to do, or a to-do-list that I need to check off of. Believe it or not, the most enjoyable and relaxing part of my day is when I get to be with Ashton J. He melts my heart, and he is at the stage where he wants to give me hugs and kisses on his own!
Dancing, laughing, and chasing after him is a full time job on its own. My support system is amazing though, and thats how I am able to stay afloat all the time. My husband is the best dad a kid could ever hope for. He is always on dad duty, and letting me relax and take a breather. I couldn’t as for a better husband or father for my children. When Aubri comes, I already know he is going to forget about me and she will be his little girl!
Crazy thing is, I am sort of jealous already! Often times, as women we get a little sensitive during and after pregnancy, but it hit me the other day that I am accustomed to being the only daughter, the only daughter in law, and Ahmad’s one and only. Aubri will now take that spot, but its okay as long as I know she will be loved.
I have also realized during this motherhood journey that its all trial and error. Everyone raise their children differently, and now I see it. Before, I would wonder why a kid was running around and the parents had no shoes on the their children. Now, I put Ashton’s shoes on in the car, place him in the stroller when we get to our destination, and next thing I know he only has one shoe. All of my parental judgments have went out the window, because its a tough job to even keep a shoe on a child! Better yet, I have learned their attention span is so short that keeping them occupied for an hour is even hard to do! So, sorry to all the parents that I judged in the past because now I see the struggle! LOL!!!!!
All I have been wearing recently are dresses because Aubri is sitting so low, and it’s way easier to run to the bathroom in a dress (sorry, prego woman problems). The Houston Galleria just re-opened Ann Taylor, and OMG the store is to die for. The store is a new concept, and not the old lady store that your mom shops at any more. They have brought a modern flare to a more sophisticated store and I am all for it. Besides the store being absolutely gorgeous, and me wanting to take the chandelier by the wardrobe room (its that grand), I fell in love with several pieces in the store.
This striped shirt dress is so comfortable and has a cotton blend that makes it so soft. I will admit, I was a little hesitant in buying it because I hate things that you have to take to the dry cleaners. The dress has a v-neck crossover front, and a tie waist band which is perfect for synching your waist. I will be able to wear this flowy waist dress after pregnancy, which is another reason why I bought it.
Ashton’s look was picked out by his Papa G (my dad)! I was surprised because I don’t feel as if I had cool clothes like this when I was his age. Ashton’s entire look is from Baby Zara, and sunglasses are from Baby Gap. I love shopping for him at Zara because its affordable, and the quality of the clothes. He can run around and get dirty like any other little boy, but still be stylish. I am praying he continues to let me dress him when he gets older, but I already know that isn’t going to happen.
