M-Day Round 2

Oh hey.  It's been a while.  We've been pretty busy.

I survived Mother's Day this year, maybe even enjoyed it, because I'm in such a better place than I was a year ago.
For starters, last year we were unemployed homeowners with an 11-month-old and a new pregnancy (which was still a secret).  I was scared and tired and stressed and angry.

This year I was comfortable.  Comfortable with my mothering, comfortable with the decisions that Slice and I have made.  Comfortable in our finances, in our house and ward and family.  Comfortable in my own skin.

Plus, Slice got up with the babies and let me sleep in.

And MG ate the leaves off of my roses.

wow, I am so glad this year you had a better mother's day... i cannot imagine how you were feeling last year with all these things going on... did you hide your pregnancy for long? I always try and always fail. Last pregnancy i hid it for 2 weeks and 2 days, and it was already a nightmare for me...

So far we've made it to about 12 weeks both times. :) There was one time we announced a pregnancy early, and I miscarried, so we waited with the other ones. It is hard though!
