Happy OFFICIAL first day of fall, y’all! Like every basic girl out there, fall is my favorite time of year. The weather finally starts cooling off a bit and I absolutely love watching the leaves turn to my favorite color palette. The crisp air, football games, boots (and all of the fun fall fashions), pumpkin patches, etc. It all makes me so happy. I think for me, some of my favorite memories and events have happened in the fall which is what makes it so special to me. Our anniversary and Ryan’s, Hampton’s and Weston’s birthdays all take place in the fall. We have had some of our happiest days during this season that I treasure.
I wanted to give you all a little life update because I haven’t written one in a very long time. My sweet baby boy will be 6 months old next week! I can NOT believe that. His first six months have flown by and it has all been a pretty big blur. At the same time, I am really trying to enjoy every minute I can with him and soaking up all the baby things. It is so emotional knowing he is my last baby. It has been tugging on my heartstrings, but I feel like everyone goes through that with their baby.
Hampton is THRIVING in kindergarten. We had a tough first couple of weeks because like him mama, he doesn’t like change. With everything being so new, it was hard on him, but now he is loving it and looks forward to going every day. I am so proud of him.
Sophie is doing great in preschool. We made the decision to move her from a 5 day program to just 3 this year so that I could spend more time with her and we would spend less time on the road. It has worked out really well and I have loved having my three littles all home with me on Mondays and Fridays. She also started dance classes again and is still loving it.
Weston started MMO this year and has done really well. Of course, we are dealing with typical two-year-old things with him right now, but he is so fun and knows how to make us all laugh. He is the sweetest boy.
Ryan and I are doing really well. He is still traveling a lot which is tough some weeks, but it makes the days he is home so much sweeter. We have started being more intentional with making time for one another when he I home and it has been so nice.
I have been struggling with anxiety since having Tucker, but I am doing much better now. I have had to make some lifestyle changes that have helped tremendously. I am also learning how to ask for help when I need it and be okay with that. Exercising and taking breaks when I can has been a game changer for me during this season of life.
We are planning so many things for the next month including a camping trip with some friends and Hampton’s birthday celebration! We can not wait to check some things off of our fall bucket list!
