Life Lately, in Bullet Points



- I joined a Book Club. So far I've read The Fault in Our Stars and The Glass Castle. It's nice to be involved in something that requires intellectual thought instead of nursery rhymes, for once!

- I think I've got this whole breastfeeding thing down. I now feel completely comfortable nursing in public. I really didn't think I would last as long as I have. And while I don't have a set goal, I have no intentions of stopping soon. I'm just going to continue until it doesn't work for our family anymore.

- Adelaide had a blow-out at a restaurant the other night. I prayed to the diaper bag gods that I had a change of clothes for her. Hallelujah! I did!

- Emmalyn fell off the side of the steps in the pool and went straight into her float, called for help, and grabbed the wall. We were both so proud.

- Three year-old tantrums S-U-C-K! Big time.

- I'm doing July's #independenceARMy & #SunsOutTeekiBumsOut Yoga Challenge on Instagram. It's been so great getting back into yoga... even if my time is limited and I sometimes have a three year-old crawling all over me. {see: Instagram video} I guess it helps me practice patience, eh? You can follow my journey on my Instagram: @katievanbrunt & at #loyallykatieyoga It's fun and challenging!!

- Adelaide is an incredible baby! She only cries when she's wet, tired, or hungry. She sleeps anywhere from 6-8 hours a night. {don't hate.} She's a true joy and I love having her in our family.

- Emmalyn is obsessed with Adelaide. It's almost a little too suffocating. She has a tendency to wake her up with extra hard hugs and kisses. Like, multiple times a day. UGH. Honestly, I've tried everything I can think of to get her to stop and nothing is working. Help?!

- I can't believe school is starting back again. So soon! I just bought Emmalyn's school supplies. This year, she will be going to school three days a week. I'm excited for her.

- Adjusting to two kids was not as hard as I thought it was going to be. Sure, it's difficult when both are crying, one is in the bath tub, and the other needs to be fed, but we make it work. The chaos is totally worth having two daughters.

- I said I didn't ever want to be pregnant again or have more kids than I have hands, but now I'm not so sure...

- I am thoroughly blessed I did not get postpartum depression the second time around. Praise God!

- Having a baby in the summertime is difficult. It limits our daily activities significantly, but we're making it work.

- I never want Adelaide to grow up! I'm absolutely loving having a baby in the house!

So how has your summer been so far?!

loyally,
