Baby #2.

Baby #2.
When are you coming? 
What will you be like?
How will A respond to being a big sister?

I always ask myself these things. No, we're not currently back in the TTC group. We're waiting till A is at least 1 if not 1 1/2. I want to make sure she has enough time to be a baby. Enough just one on one time with me and SJ but, at the same time I don't want them so far apart that it's hard for her to get used to a new baby. So I figured starting to talk about baby #2 after A's birthday is the best option. 

What will I like as a mom to 2 babies?
Will I be able to handle it? 
Heck most days it still amazes me that Miss A is mine. Would it be weird for you to hear that, it still hasn't clicked that A is mine, that I've had a baby? I mean yes I do everything and more for her and love her more than anything, but I still feel like I'm in a dream.

Sometimes I wonder if I'll be able to handle two babies. Sometimes I wonder when we'll actually get pregnant. Will it happen quickly, or will it take a while like it did with A. Can I handle it taking a while if it does? I think I can. I know I can with Miss A by my side. Of course she won't know what's going on, but seeing her beautiful smile will help. Every time I see her my heart is healed just a little bit more, from all the pain it endured waiting for her. Hoping, wishing she'd come.

She came when God knew I needed her most. This is her time. She came when she was ready.  I know the same is to be said about Baby #2. He or she will come when they are ready. I know it will be more of a challenge with two kids, verses just Miss A. I'm up for that challenge. I know it will be worth it. And just knowing that, I'm ready now. I'm ready, like yesterday.

So for now I'll look back at A's baby pictures. I'll fold her little clothes and pack them up. I'll let my excitement and curiosity build, and remember that it'll happen when it's supposed to happen. Though if anyone were to tell me that outside of you blogging buddies, I would probably stab them. HA!


I'm linking this post up with Shell over at Things I Can't Say.

My Ring!


Ya, look at that nasty hand, but look a beautiful ring! 
The middle part is my engagement ring, one of the bands is my wedding band and the other was bought for me just because. 

When SJ and I were dating we talked about getting married, ALL the time. He asked about rings, asked if I wanted to go look at them or if I wanted someone to just pick it out for me. I said I'd rather the guy go and pick out the ring for me. That I wanted him to find the ring that looked like me. He said he looked for days at different stores and finally found this one. I haven't seen any like it. The jeweler of course said there weren't many if any like it. (Who knows.) I love my ring. I love that SJ picked it out because it reminded him  of my smile. I wouldn't trade my ring for another. 

I'm a little late linking up over here. but I really wanted to show off my ring!

I want to keep.

So yesterday I posted that the Resolutions I will NOT be keeping this year. So why not somethings that I would love to have happen this year?


Family.


Spend more time just playing on the floor or reading books to Miss A.

Go on a family vacation, just the 3 of us.

Get more family pictures taken.

Go to the park as often as we can.

Make cookies together.

Visit family more.

Be a better influence on my siblings.


Myself.


I won't say exercise or eat better, but I will say, drink more water!

Feel confident with my post baby body.

Take time to keep up with my self, eyebrows, hair color, hair style.

Find some more things to add to my closet, not shoes though!



House.

Finish all the painting that has been started.

Redo all the cabinets that haven't been done yet. 

Do a major clean out of everything!

Get the backyard finished. 



Blog.

I want to be a better at leaving comments. I really want comments on my blog, so I need to give to receive right?

I want to get better at posting things you want to read. Any ideas? Let me know.

I want more followers, so I need to start writing in ways that will help me to get this.

I want to get my own URL, not a blogspot. 

I want to continue to post regularly. I started doing really well the last couple months.


Etsy.


Continue to work on it.

Sale some stuff!

Have at least 20 things for Sale on there!


I'm sure there are tons more I can add. The list could go on and on. What are you goals?

Target Tuesday #2


I'm in the decorating mood right now. I  possibly finished the wall in my living room. I collected things from around my home that needed a new location. I'm almost completely happy with how it's turned out, but moving along, I'm linking up with Tara for Target Tuesday to show off some things I'd love for my house!


I would LOVE a coat rack like this for the entrance way, one I could pull out of the closet when I know people are coming with coats! 


We need a book shelf or two in the study. Right now all books are stacked on the window seat or packed away.


I want to redo my bedding in my room, go with more blues and grays. 


I'd love some of these in my bathrooms. They'd be so handy & cute!


I need this & all the other pieces.


Love this! I would love love love this in my bathroom! I need something up on the wall! 

Looks like this turned into mostly bathroom stuff. Guess that's what I'll be decorating next! 

You should link up with Tara for Target Tuesday.

She also has a new link up coming this Friday!!
