Its A Beautiful Life...
I was sat choosing photos for our 2013 family photo book earlier as I am determined to keep on track of it this time so I don't have to spend as long doing it at the end of the year- that's the theory but I am already way behind.
Anyway as I sat looking over all our photos from the start of January, it struck me just what a year this has been so far. At the start of January we were a three, and I couldn't even imagine having another little person in our lives. I just couldn't imagine feeling the same way about another baby as I did about Mads.
Then in February LL arrived into the world, and she just made it complete.
2013 so far has been exhausting, and at times hard work, but it has also been the best year of my life so far.
I feel content.
Yes at times my children drive me round the bend and I can't wait for bedtime.
Yes sometimes my husband and I argue and bicker over silly things.
Yes we don't have a lot of disposable income and have to watch the pennies.
Yes I don't look my best, I'm still carrying some baby weight and my hair is in awful shape. I look tired all of the time.
Yes we have the odd drama or upset that can be stressful.
And yes our life isn't particularly exciting.
But I'm happy.
I am enjoying day to day life as a family of four.
I honestly wouldn't wish for anything more. We don't ever know for certain what life has in store for us, but if it continues like this I will be happy.
I'm so thankful for the three people I am lucky enough to call my family.
Cheesy but true.
Lets hope the rest of the year is just as good as the first part has been.
