Before River Gold was born we thought we would absolutely have four children! After he arrived we absolutely believed we were done! I feel guilty sharing that because it makes me nervous that people will get the wrong idea… like that he was a “bad baby” or that we didn’t love him or something crazy like that! But the truth is he is all things wonderful I was just emotionally spent. I felt truly overwhelmed by life and mix that with a large dose of postpartum hormones and you’re sure to jump to some hasty decisions!
So fast forward like a year-ish. Life was good and suddenly my husband and I both started to think on that baby number four we always wanted!
Jeremy was the first one bold enough to speak out that he thought we needed one more to complete our family and as alsways his confidence rubbed off on me and quickly I’m in agreement! He makes me feel so brave and sure of myself! It really is one of his most remarkable qualities!
But anywaysssss as we think more on the timing of baby number four we have found ourselves in a few situations where we are looking for a little more independence from River before we dive back into full on baby mode again! I.e. We’d like a little getaway… or five just the two of us! But you try doin that’s next to impossible task with are little nursin babe! He sleeps through the night and has for months but I nurse him every night before bed and I’m the only one who has ever put him down!
So step one in desiring a little more independence is going out on a date and having my sister put River to bed…. no nursing…. no mama! And they did it! He was a total freaking rockstar and had zero issues! I had extremely mixed emotions about his “success” but it for sure is getting us closer to our goal of some good quality mama and papa time!
So I’m daydreaming of a weekend away to Palm Springs for starters! Palm Springs is our favorite but I’m thinking we may wanna try an all new hotel! Any recommendations?!
Oh and because no post is complete without outfit details let me let you in on a little secret!
