If you know me even just a little, you know I’m a huge fan of coffee. Most days, it’s the only thing that keeps me up to speed with two littles in the house. Unfortunately, with drinking coffee almost daily, comes coffee stains on my teeth. Of course I want a pearly white smile, but I cannot give up my love for coffee. The struggle is real.

Okay, confession time. For years, when I applied a “full-face” of make-up, I was totally skipping out on one of the most crucial steps: lipstick. I don’t really know why. I guess I wasn’t comfortable wearing it and wasn’t sure if it looked “right” on me. Well one thing is for sure, wearing nothing on my lips wasn’t doing much for me. I had tried a few drugstore lipsticks here and there over the years, but found that I had to reapply them multiple times throughout the day because they came off so easily. Super annoying. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
I never thought I’d get to the end of this pregnancy, but here we are in week 36. I guess it’s time to really start preparing for the big day. My last two labors were just a few hours from first contraction to baby being born, so I need to have everything set to go. I probably still overpacked a little, even though this is my third go at this rodeo, but I’m an over packer. It’s just who I am!
Over the weekend, my aunt, cousin and mom, hosted the cutest southwestern themed baby shower for us. A ‘Diaper Fiesta’. It was perfect, complete with a taco bar, onesie making station and the biggest diaper cake I’ve ever seen. It was so nice to spend time with our family and friends, celebrating the nearing arrival of our baby boy. We feel so lucky to have these people in our lives and we can’t wait for everyone to meet baby Connor.
The main question I get asked while I’m out and about with my girls is “When are you due?” quickly followed by, “Do you know what you’re having?” As soon as I say boy, there is always a sense of relief from people. Like God forbid I have three kids the same gender. I seriously would have loved to have three girls just as much. My husband and I both felt that way before we found out the sex of this baby. I get giddy just thinking about having another little girl (or boy), which scares me and makes me think maybe I’m not done having kids. (Jesus take the wheel)
I thought I had so much more time before we got to preschool days. I remember when my 3 year old was a squishy little newborn and some of my friends’ older kids were starting Pre-K. I was so relieved because I really thought I had all the time in the world before having to face my first born starting school. Well.. here we are.
