Now Welcoming…


We just found out this past week that we are expecting our second baby!  We are so excited.  I found out early, so I will be 5 weeks tomorrow May 16.  Baby Haggard is due January 2019.  My first doctor appointment isn’t until May 31.

Elizabeth will be 9 months old on the 23rd.  She now has 6 teeth , and is trying to walk.  She can grab ahold of anything and pull herself up, and we just had to lower her mattress in her crib because she was trying to climb out.  Our silly girl.  She is learning so fast.

So, Mother’s Day was this past Sunday.  Last year I made a Mother’s Day post, but I didn’t get to this year.  Life stays so hectic now.  I had a great Mother’s Day.  Dustin bought me a necklace with three hearts (for him, Elizabeth, and Baby Haggard), an ice cream maker, and some new oven mitts and pot holders.  My mom got me a jewelry set with Elizabeth’s birthstone.  Then at church all the women got umbrellas, and our nursery teacher got me a cute book.  I am so lucky to have such amazing mother’s in my life that are helping me and that have helped me on my journey through motherhood.  I am so blessed.

I am continuously getting further through my college career.  I have 34.5 credits right now.  Out of 90 I think.  I’m so proud of myself for getting this far with everything that has been going on.

I am so nervous about having babies so close in age.  Elizabeth will be 18 months old when this baby is born.  I am happy, but scared.  I’m worried I’m not going to be the best mother.  That I’m not going to be able to give them both the attention that they deserve.  I just got a book off of amazon called Twice Blessed that is supposed to be about how to handle your family becoming a family of four.  If anyone has any advice, PLEASE  share with me before I become a nervous wreck.

We don’t get to go to church a lot anymore because of my work hours, so I try to do my own studies at home.  I just got a pregnancy devotional journal.  It starts at 5 weeks and goes all the way to your birth story.  It was worth the money, even though it wasn’t a lot.  I honestly wasn’t expecting anything like what I have received.

I’m still into the young living essential oils, I’m trying to make time for them, it’s just taking a while to manage my time.  I have so much going on, that those are honestly one of the last things on my mind.

I have had my blog for a year now!  I’m so excited!  I’m proud that I have kept it up this long.  I know I don’t post as much as I would like on here, and I promise to change that.  I promise to try to post once a week, if possible.  If not, at least once every two weeks.

  1. You will be fine as a mommy of 2 under 2! You will get the hang of things and my best advice is get on a routine! It wasnt to long ago I had 3 boys under 2! As they get older it also becomes easier. Good luck mama!


    1. 3 boys under 2? You stayed busy! We have a routine with our daughter , I’m just so nervous that it will change . We are also looking for a 3 bedroom house because we have no room at all in our home for another baby .
