Welcome a little happiness in your life!

Things making me happy lately:
-In the last week, I’ve found out that 3 friends (close or not, I consider you a friend!) are expecting! Every time I hear someone is pregnant, I get so excited you would think I was having a baby – so incredibly happy for all of you girls and all of my other friends that are also expecting! I feel like the number grows daily J
-I’m planning a baby shower for a lifelong friend that is due in June and I’m having so much fun choosing things that go with the theme of her shower. I LOVE planning a party!
-I feel like my role at work is becoming more defined. It’s been a weird transition back and I’m not doing a lot of stuff I used to do before going on leave. I kind of like the work I’m doing now a lot more than what I used to do. Hoping my workload increase a tiny bit though…
-It’s been beautiful outside lately (seriously, above 30 degrees is considered beautiful in MN – so sad!) and I can’t wait for spring to get here so Bailey and I can go for walks and possibly maybe even jogs!
-Last night when I should’ve been upstairs taking a shower before bed, I decided to stay downstairs with Chris and Bailey. Chris had just gotten home from work a few minutes ago and I swear the little rascal (Bailey) decided to stay awake to see daddy. Bailey started giggling and continued to giggle at Chris for about 2 minutes straight. Unbelievably precious! I am so happy I didn’t miss that, because that is what I’m going to be remembering when I’m having a bad day – that sweet little laugh!
-Getting workouts in the last couple nights. They are not strenuous by any means and just at home workouts, but something is way better than nothing and it puts me in such a good mood!
-I’m hoping to get Bailey signed up for “swim lessons” this summer. The registration opens on Friday! I think it will be fun for the family and I can’t wait to see little Bailey and other cute babies in a pool!
-My drive to and from work has been amazing. I get to work at 630 and leave at 3. It’s a little rough getting up that early sometimes, but it’s 100% worth it to not sit in stupid traffic!
-Kirby feeling better. He went a couple of days where he was “broken” and it was so sad to see him not being himself for a few days. We’re not exactly sure what happened, but the other morning I woke up to Chris standing next to my side of the bed telling me that there’s something wrong with Kirby. Anytime Chris wakes me up, I immediately have a mini heart attack wondering who/what is wrong! He set Kirby down on the floor and Kirby just fell to the ground. He must’ve somehow hurt one of his little legs and was having a hard time walking/climbing stairs. He did a lot of laying around (much different from the usual laying around J) and is now on the mend! Thank goodness!! Love that little stinker!
-Spending time with my hubby! The curbing season is approaching with spring being near and that means that Chris will be at home in the evenings and we’ll have BBQs on the deck and play with Bailey. This also means that he will be continuously taking phone calls (hopefully!) from clients, spending evenings prepping for the next days’ work, unloading dirt/sod from his truck and just busy making a dollar. The transition into busy season is typically a little rough for us. Learning how to manage his schedule and know when he will be home for dinner and with Bailey in daycare it could get a little hairy…but hopefully we all survive!
