This March, I started this blog, took my organizing business public, and started my Shaklee business. There were a lot of behind the scene reasons for that particular timing. We had hoped for a new baby for a very long time and throughout the fall and winter I had undergone fertility help. Infertility is a roller-coaster, with particular emotional highs and lows every month. After prayer and consideration, we decided to leave it alone, officially “moved on”, and focused on loving the children we felt so blessed to have in our family.
In March, my new business (organizing/blog/Shaklee) gave me something awesome to focus on, instead of dwelling on all of my babies going to elementary school in the fall. And I’ve loved every second of helping people change their lives with organization, blogging, and sharing Shaklee.
In April, I sold or gave away all of my remaining baby items. Seeing the baby stuff stored at the top of closets was only a painful reminder.
Is it any wonder that in May I learned that I was pregnant?! To say we are ecstatic is a complete understatement. We are so so so so so so so so happy!!!!
I am having so much fun making plans for the new baby. Rooms will need be rearranged, furniture moved around and more purchased, and lots of organizing needs to happen. The lists have officially started. This is technically the 2nd list I made. The first list was written by 6-year-old, Michelle. She approached me “Mom, I think we should make a list of everything we’ll need for the new baby so we don’t forget anything.” I about cried from pride (or, maybe hormones?)!
I’m so excited to share our progress as we await the arrival of baby #4 next January.
Oh happy day!
