I love my life as a stay at home mom. We live in a little bubble here and our days are slow and sometimes quiet. We keep to ourselves most of the time since John and I share one car and he is at school during the days. 

Evaleigh spends a lot of time doing puzzles and coloring while Avett goes around making a lot of messes. Sometimes at the end of the day it can be frustrating but I wouldn't have it any other way.  We are constantly rotating between the living room the kitchen and jumping off the bunkbeds in the basement. 

With the weather cold now we don't spend as much time outside as we would like but I'm looking forward to warmer weather so we can live outside again.  I never thought I would say I look forward to summer.  But here I am in January looking forward to making water bubbles and playing outside in diapers and undies. 

Of course there are hard things too, I'm really struggling with Avett wanting to be at my feet all of the time he's pretty fussy sometimes.  It can be quite wearing on my nerves. But then I remember that he'll only be this little for so much longer. Parenting is such a roller coaster.

I really cherish this time when we are quite untouched by the outside world, all we do is hang out with each other all day long. And I love it.

Sometimes staying home is hard, but such a blessing. I work three days a week, and even on the days I am home I get a little stir crazy. But I would haven't it any other way because even the stir crazy moments with our little ones are still precious!

Thanks so much for this blog post. :) I really needed to read it.

My husband and I are both in grad school working part time and finishing our master's degrees, and we have a little 3 month old baby. We love him so much, but he is SUCH a hard baby... I work mostly from home but when he's screaming for hours it's really difficult... and then when he's not screaming he's the happiest baby, but he's so social-- he doesn't like to play alone-- he wants us to always be giving him attention. It's so hard, and today was a particularly hard day... but it's so good to remember that they're only little once...he'll only need me so much for so long... :)
