hi everyone! and happy new year! these photos are from a few weeks ago, when we were all healthy and feeling like our regular selves. thank you for being patient with me the last few weeks as i haven’t been able to post as frequently as i would have liked. i feel like i have so much i want to share, too, from christmas to everything about the twins and this pregnancy, that i almost feel frustrated i’m so behind.
i’ve laid low the last few weeks because, in the midst of the holiday craziness, i’ve been struggling each and every single day with morning sickness (which is actually throwing up in the afternoon and evening too) and nausea and a ginormous cloud of fatigue that still hasn’t gone away and is new to me in pregnancy. and it has really thrown me!
in addition to me being completely out of it, our sweet little conrad was very sick this past week, which broke all of our hearts. the poor little dude couldn’t catch a break for over a week, and even with daily trips to our pediatrician to monitor things, we still ended up at the hospital by the end of the week trying to get him better. fortunately, he’s doing so much better these past two days and we are relieved. i know all parents can relate to how scary it feels when little ones are sick. especially when they are small and aren’t able to fully comprehend what is wrong, or why they need to take medicine or whatever it is, it makes it that much harder to watch as they suffer. gosh. this past week is one i don’t really care to ever relive. i’m hoping we can keep all the germs and viruses out of our family and apartment for the remainder of winter. my heart goes out to any of you who also has a little one at home that isn’t feeling well. i hope everyone has a speedy recovery and that there are lots of snuggles and cuddles involved.
i’m so excited that 2018 is here and for what this year has in store for our family. josh and i have something exciting we’ve been working on that launches soon and i can’t wait to share all the details with you. i’d also love to hear if there is anything specific you guys would like me to focus or post more on this coming year. we’re bringing back more let’s chat videos on all sorts of topics and i want to do some posts on dressing the baby bump like i have in the past (although i’m slightly nervous just how big this bump may be towards the end, not entirely sure how the dressing thing will go beyond pj’s by the third trimester. we’ll see.)
thanks for being here and following along! i actually am dying to share the genders of the babies with you (because we couldn’t wait until birth to find out this time like we have in the past), so stay tuned and i’ll share later this week. love you guys, and wishing you a very happy new year with the ones you love!
