Coming off of a high this weekend. Thursday evening I sat alongside my friend as she labored and delivered her third baby. Can I just tell you. There is something so celestial about watching a baby be born. It’s other worldly. An out of body experience to watch history and watch a LIFE come into the world. This is the second baby I have helped her deliver and both times I walked away feeling raw. But in the best way. Life is so precious.
To top it off, Sunday we gathered with friends and family to celebrate our baby turning 5. Her actual birthday is the 30th. But yesterday mostly just felt like “how is this happening!? Didn’t we just do her 1st birthday!?” as all moms think at each birthday. I’ll post a separate blog later on all the party details!
Later this week we start prepping for back to school. Kindergarten. Kin. Der. Garten. 😳 And so starts the mess of emotions!
So this morning while it’s cool and feels like fall… we are going to stay in pajamas, open all the windows and let the fresh air in. I’ll drink my coffee and Piper and Oliver will play with some of her new gifts. Addie is into everything but it’s all easily cleaned up so I’ll let her dig through the cabinets a bit longer just so I can sit and come off the high. Happy Monday friends! Let’s slow down a bit.
