    #3 and #4 are such nice things to come to terms with. As a busy mom, you eventually have to be okay with the fact that incomplete tasks will happen, because other things must take priority. Also, I used to be the same way with not wanting to leave the house without makeup/hair done etc. and that definitely went out the window about 5 years ago, haha.

    Haha I love number four. I think everyone should feel a little bit more like that!

    I'm so worried about my blog once our baby comes in June!! Especially because I am just like you with hating not having things done – although I know I'm going to have to just let this all go, ha! You've been doing awesome, girl!

    Yes, always choose sleep over ANYTHING else, if you can! And good for you for caring less about what others think. Having a baby to focus on def changes that but there are times I really need to work on it. I still say "Yes" way more than I want to.

    I'm super impressed with you blogging post-birth! You're doing a wonderful job! Jack is so lucky to have such a talented mama! I LOVE that photo of your family up there! You guys are the cutest!

    Yay! Im so glad you're adjusting ok. I still find it hard to balance work and blogging so the fact that you've kept up with it AND have a baby means you should get an award or something! lol

    February 15th, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    I love the fact that you're still blogging! I know that it has to be tough with Jack, but the typing one handed is definitely a great skill to have!

    You have done amazing things keeping up with the blog–it's impressive. My best friend just had her baby in December and showering is a huge thing for her. Seriously -mama's are saints.

    So many amazing changes! Savoring my cup of coffee each morning is one of my favorite things as well. But you can't beat blogging with one hand, and snuggling a baby in the other <3

    I've been so shocked by how well you have kept up your blog, not because I personally doubted you but because I know my blog would probably fall apart if I had a baby to take care of! You're doing amazing beautiful girl! Love this sweet family photo too!

    I know exactly what you mean about feeling like they were just born, but you've had them forever. I'm still on my first cup of coffee at 2:30 pm, that has been reheated 4 times. And I'm writing this comment (and my blog post this morning) while wearing my daughter wrapped up on me and bouncing on a yoga ball. LOL I love seeing I'm not the only one!

    ok your little man is just beautiful! and congrats on surviving month #1! I feel like that is really where I started to turn a corner and the nights got a little bit less exhausting and scary πŸ˜‰ you got this mama!

    Isn't it strange when it feels like something happened just yesterday but also feels like it's been forever? That always weirds me out.

    I love that you don't care what people think! Your 'BYEEE' cracked me up. I don't blame you, I'd be keeping that baby away from strangers too!

    I like this:) I found I was really good at bathing two kids under two at the same time with one hand for each kids, making dinner while nursing, I think I'm basically the QUEEN of multi-tasking. My husband and I also cheers each year on their birthdays for keeping them alive another year…which is hard sometimes!

    We're expecting our little baby boy in a few months and I am so excited. I haven't had a cup of coffee in a loooong time so that is something I am looking forward to, aside from being a mommy lol πŸ™‚

    Chugging the first cup of coffee is so necessary!!! I still do that even with an almost four month old. πŸ™‚

  34. Laura Marie Keenan

    Sometimes I am still working on these things. My coffee is always lukewarm and sipped on throughout the first half of the day. Unless I happen to be in the car and everyone is strapped down. Then I can finish a coffee in one sitting.

  35. Laura Darling

    February 16th, 2016 at 3:23 am

    I don't even have a baby and I'm so bad about drinking my coffee when it's hot the first time. I carry it around with me all morning and end up misplacing it when I'm 3/4 of the way finished!

  36. 17 Perth

    February 16th, 2016 at 11:21 am

    Haha! It's so true about the coffee and about not caring what other people think. Most days I love the house and realized I haven't even looked at myself. Lol.

    17% is way better than 100% haha. that's awesome girl! i don't drink coffee so at least that part of motherhood should be okay for me, right? haha πŸ™‚ congrats again!

    February 16th, 2016 at 3:41 pm

    YES LADY!! Love this–and I'm with you on the reheated coffee thing–I'm okay with it, as long as I've had one fresh cup!

  41. Erin Zauner

    February 16th, 2016 at 4:29 pm

    I think the cold coffee thing is a universality of motherhood. literally, we all get used to reheated coffee after a while…I need to learn how to drink my first cup faster!

  42. SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph

    February 16th, 2016 at 6:58 pm

    There is great, wonderful, fabulous freedom in not caring what others think. Not only will that serve you well as a woman and a person, but as a Mom as well! Everyone wants to tell moms what to do. You already know.

    You were awesome at keeping up with your blog through your pregnancy and I'm really impressed with how you've run it since Jack arrived as well. You go girl!

  43. Sparkles and Lattes

    February 16th, 2016 at 10:32 pm

    Great words of advice and outlook on life. I drink my coffee and eat my food in seconds it seems. I never got the hang out typing with one hand though. I would blog when my girls slept. It was tough. And awesome that you don't care what anyone thinks. That is the perfect attitude!!!

  44. Catherine Short

    I rarely drink hot coffee anymore. Due to often drinking coffee on my "10" breaks at work, I opt for iced as I can chug it much faster!

    I've been super impressed with how you've been keeping up with the blog, too! Go girl!!
