1 week old today

This has been a crazy week! Jessica is 1 week old and it already feels like time is flying by. I have enjoyed being able to spend time with my children and husband this week. My family has been a huge help with food and anything else we might need. I can't help but be over joyed right now about all of the wonderful things and people I have been blessed with. I look forward to another wonderful week with the family!

It has been a fun month! I had Christmas break off and was able to spend endless quality time with my boys. We colored, rode on the carousal, Baked cupcakes, and so much more! Also on break I got to reupholster some cushions on an old rocking chair I am using in the new babies room. Check out the picture below.
Took me 2 hours to do this which was over two days. I can only sit still for so long being pregnant! I probably would have been done sooner. I am so excited on how the room is turning out. Ready for our new arrival to make her appearance!

I go back to work tomorrow and it will be a busy week! Classes start back on Monday so hopefully I will get back into a system before the baby comes. No worries I know all will be well.

Happy New Year everyone and make this year better than last year! I know I plan too!
