May Weekend

I'm counting down the days until my family gets here Memorial Day weekend. I can't wait! I get sooooo homesick sometimes especially after having Connor I really want them around.

Connor has been an angel baby lately....just smiling and laughing at everything. We love to watch him grow and learn each day. His little smile just melts my heart! It's the greatest thing on this earth looking into his eyes and see him smiling back at me.
I've been having a lot of anxiety lately and I don't know why??? Just tension and stress...I know I worry waaaay too much about things that don't matter and I wish I could just lay down and night and let the world melt away. Unfortunately I am not one of those people and I've had a hard time managing things lately while trying to get things done. I will start one thing and then forget about it and then start another project...then move onto another thing....I feel like robo mom sometimes! Lord grant me the strength I need to deal with each day and whatever it may bring. I love being a mommy, but sometimes I get overwhelmed...I don't know HOW all of you with two, three, or four (or more!) kids do it! I'm living and learning each day :)

This weekend we went out to lunch with my sweet friend Bree and her son Dillon. We visited a new restaurant called the Yucatan Taco Stand and it was SOOOOO good! We will definitely be going back there!
Dessert
White Chocolate Cream Brule
I also got my hair done! I asked for caramel colored highlights and they turned out really REALLY blond....so I am not so sure about it. It's growing on me though....what do ya'll think?

I am a person that worries a lot and it always takes a toll on me. I am learning a lot that God loves me and I can just rest in the Hands of a God that is powerful, loving and gracious to me. I pray for you.

Love the new hair cut..very nice

Girl, I love the hair!! It looks very fun and summery!

As for the anxiety, I would say that it's probably stress and hormone related..... and you are not alone! Talk to your doc if you are feeling so overwhelmed - maybe they can suggest something to help you unwind! It's worth a shot!

Lots of hugs!

Your hair looks great!!!

Elle said...

Your hair looks amazing! Perfect for spring / summer!

As for the anxiety = honey I manage to grind my jaw to a pulp and I don't even have ANY children yet!

You have to breathe and look after yourself. xx

Aly said...

Love the hair and that food looks delish! I don't even have any babies yet and I get overwhelmed so I can't imagine how it is with new mommies that have 1,2,3, etc. kids.

Debbie said...

love the hair! im with you on the worrying. i think between being a mom and having so many other responsibilites, it's impossible to not worry about things. i wish i could get better about that, too!

dang, where were the free announcements when I needed them?!?! haha

Ashley said...

Your hair looks great!

Kimberley said...

in that picture of connor he's saying "whatcha lookin' at?" so cute!

and as mentiond, you are not alone. i think all moms go through that at some point. i know i did. you'll find your routine soon, which will become the norm. being a new mom is overwhelming, no lie!

love the hair = summer colors :)

Jenn said...

Your hair looks great!

I don't know how people with even one kid do it! I barely have enough time to do all the necessary things every day and feel like I have much quality time with Scott. And the poor dog needs to be walked a lot more, but sometimes I'm just not in the mood.

Nicole said...

Love your hair! Just in time for summer too!

I know how it is to stress...I am the queen of stressing. My SIL always says that I have "pending fears of doom"...I think, and over think and then think again...and then wonder...it makes me crazy. To be honest in this crazy world I think we all worry. If you watch the news that will sure put you into stress mode just thinking about having a child growing up in this craziness! I have to re-group sometimes and tell myself that I can't to everything and I can't control everything. It's so hard but I try. Motherhood is very overwhelming...I think it's the feeling of loving something so much and feeling so responsible for them. All things that are good but can be stressful at times.

Have a good week and enjoy that sweet lil' man!

Paige said...

I also worry all of the time and my daughter is 4. I am still living and learning daily. I think that is something that will never end for me! lol. Your hair looks fabulous!

Chelsi said...

I also worry about things often out of my control. I'm sure that being a mommy just adds to this worry bin! However, my favorite quote about worrying is something about being like a rocking chair and you do a lot of rocking but never go anywhere? Of course, I can't remember it exactly! HA! But, I just try to enjoy the moment that I'm in because if I spend too much time worrying about what I did or said yesterday and what will or won't happen tomorrow... today will be lost. Easier said than done, that's for sure. But worrying is normal... unfortunately.

That dessert looks delish and your hair is very pretty!!!

Connor is getting so big and his eyes are beautiful! Mommyhood is great! Don't let the everyday stress get to you, I worry a lot and am the same way! You just have to try to let it go and know it will all workout! :)
