Well here we are, another new year.
To start the year off we have been reorganizing the house. Chris was able to take vacation for this week, which has been really nice. It helps having him here to get a lot more done around the house (and me getting some extra sleep time in). Christmas decorations are pretty much all down (still have the lights outside) and we are getting ready for Monkey’s birthday this weekend.
I still cannot believe she is going to be 2. Although, as smart as she is, I feel like she has already been 2 for quite some time. I set up a little photoshoot area in the dining room and took her 2 year old pictures (I do some kind of shoot every birthday to keep their picture frames updated in the hallway). She was a sassy-pants the entire time, crying over wanting to watch the tablet. Fortunately she was easily bribed with chocolate which happened to be fitting for the picture anyway.
This weekend we will be celebrating with a Trolls birthday party. She kept going back and forth between Trolls and Peter Pan for a theme. She cracks me up.
Other than that, we have been going through all of our baby stuff. Knowing this is our last baby is sort of bitter sweet. Going through all the baby stuff was emotional for me. We were able to sell some of it to the second hand store, which is always nice to make some money back on things you don’t need anymore. Plus the fact that someone else will be able to get use out of them instead of it ending up in the trash makes my heart happy.
I feel like we are off to a good start to the year. There are so many things we have to look forward to in the coming months. Starting it off with the decluttering, I feel, just makes us that much more ready for the things to come our way.
2019, bring it on!
How has your 2019 been thus far?
