Thoughts for Thusday | All the Feels

Yep. I've been feeling them all lately. With Stella growing more and more everyday my emotions have been all over the place. Honestly, I didn't go through this with Wyatt. By the time Wyatt was nine months old I was already pregnant and wishing for him to grow up. I was over the breastfeeding and preparing for another little one to enter our lives.
 
It's been much different this time around. And with Stella I'm trying to keep her little as she's trying to grow up. I shared about our trip to CHICAGO yesterday. What I didn't mention was how our EBF daughter refused bottles the entire time we were gone. She survived, my mother survived, and Stella stayed her happy self the entire time we were gone. But now that we're back she's weaning and nursing about half the time she was before we left. She's self weaning much earlier than I had expected and it's been hard on me the past couple of days. While we were away she also started rolling over in her crib and sleeping on her tummy. I know it's a little thing but it's just proof of how much she's growing.
 
  I'm overwhelmed at the thought of Wyatt starting back to school again and going three mornings a week. He's talking more and more and just too big for his own britches. And we're about to start potty training which is another huge milestone of growing up for our baby boy.
 
With both of our babies getting so big I can't help but think of bringing another little baby into our family. I know, crazy right. Obviously I'm not really ready for another baby, but I've been pregnant or with a baby for the past 2.5 years. I'm not sure how to function without one or the other. Ha.
 
I'm pretty sure Sean thinks I've gone off the deep end. I started crying over ice cream the other day and felt so crazy afterwards. Thankfully he's been supportive and reminds me to laugh at myself when my hormones get the best of me.
