Kylee Addyson: Two Months

I weigh 9.6 lb and am 22 inches long. I am a great eater, love to breastfeed and love when my sis hugs me. The swing is my favorite place to nap and I really enjoy mobiles. I sound almost identical to Kinsley when she was my age when I cry. I can follow you with my eyes, am starting to make talking noises, and am starting to smile. I stretch all the time and I still keep my legs curled up like a newborn. I sleep so much still, but that’s because I’m growing

Kylee Addyson: Six Weeks

 

Kylee sure is blossoming! She grew a full pound in the two weeks, has started to slightly smile and will follow you with her eyes now. She will take a bottle but is great at breastfeeding. Kylee loves bathtime and when Sis rocks her in her rock n play. She likes to go in her swing while Kinsley naps. Kylee still sleeps all the time, but sure is a night owl. We love you calm girl!

Have a little faith,

It’s crazy to think about how totally my different my life was three Christmas’ ago.

I had just finished the most demanding and stressful academic year of my life, and was finally a dental professional. I was healing from a nasty break up, working three jobs, and was 6 months into running my business.

My mom had her house on the market, and little did I know that it would be our very last Christmas in my childhood home. After Christmas I took off from working in a dental office after all of that hard work to finish out a few classes using the rest of my scholarship money ( I am still one class away from getting my associates in business administration) I wanted to spend the semester focusing on going through things, getting rid of stuff, organizing stuff, getting prepared to sell the house ( little did I know that we really needed me to take a full semester to do it, who knew you could accumulate so much stuff!!)

 

Three years later… I am married and have two kids (and a dog and two cats!) We own a house in Fredericksburg, I am still loving running a successful business, and have yet to go back to work. We have been through some extremely challenging times that I never thought I would personally experience, but my marriage is stronger than ever and I am a totally different person for it.

It’s never what I would have expected. If you would have told me my life would look like this three years ago, I would not have believed you, but I’ve had faith through it all that there was a bigger plan for me, that I just didn’t know about. It’s what got me through the times that getting out of bed and making it to the couch was a huge achievement because I was just that sick and broken.

I can’t wait to see what the next three years have to hold, but I have faith that it will be amazing!

Visit to Alewerks in Williamsburg, VA

Such a good little spot for a sunday funday drink or a night out on the town with live music on Sundays. Trivia on Wednesdays and Brewery Tours on Saturdays. I loved the games that they had and the food truck was fabulous. It was perfectly fine having little miss Kinsley and Madison with us. We loved that they do 1/2 off Growler fills on Monday, and $1 off pints for teacher appreciation. Plus a Womens Defense Class on Saturdays.
