3 Months Later

Oh how I have been longing to sit down and say hello hands have been a little full:) 3 months ago today I headed to the hospital to give birth to our third child Jacob Henry. Of course he took his time and 12 hours later he arrived on September 9th at 12:22am. He made his debut at 9lbs 5oz and 22.75 inches long. He is absolutely adoreable and such a Joy!!
The past 3 months have been very busy and honestly very exhausting and a little stressful. I won't bore you with all the details, just a brief run down. Less than 24 hours after getting home from the hospital my husband had to return to field training and was gone for 4 days. Thank God for my dear friends in VA who helped!! Three weeks later the movers came, pack us up and we headed out for a MONTH long road trip from VA to TX, stopping in SC, visiting family and friends. Good to see everyone but will NEVER do it again. Too hard on the kids and ME!!! We finally arrived in Pensacola,FL, our new home, and we have been moved in for a little over a month. It feels so good to be in our own space with our own things!!! I don't have to desire to travel ANYWHERE, with kids, for a LONG least 6 months...hopefully longer!!!
During this time I have spent a LOT of time stocking blogs and loving Pinterest. It has all made me very anxious to start sewing again. Shortly after we moved into our new house, I got a sewing table!!! I have been sewing on the dining room table FOREVER and now that we have the room, my time had arrived. I didn't slurge on an expensive table because I never know what type of house we will have next but, I love the one I got.
It it comfortable and very functional. I have been working on a Christmas project for my daughter and I love being able to store everything in one place verses pulling everything in and out of the closest. Plus when I'm not sewing it looks like a cute little cabinet!!
Day to Day life is focused on keep my sanity in tact while wrangling three little ones. Finding time to sew is only found after bedtime and sometimes I'm too exhausted to even take a shower. But, I enjoying my me time in front of my beloved machine so I hope to spend more time with it more often....really soon!!!
