Hello! July Part 1

We've been busy around these parts. Mostly out of town and lots of play dates. It is summer time after all. Usually by the end of the day I am so tired I go to bed with the kids instead of staying up for an extra couple of hours to get some work done. Then before I know it it is the weekend and we are off having family fun again.

Here are some photos from the 4th of July:






I got to visit my friend Holly from Picture Me Sweet and she was kind enough to let me use her props to take the kids pictures. I love this lady and am so glad we are friends - especially friends who share a common interest.

But I digress - the 4th was a blast. We went down to my dads house and stayed the night so we could get up and go to the parade that morning. As you can see they had a blast!




Then it was off to my Dad's for fun on the farm and swimming!


Meet the twins. Kaileb was not to sure about them.


Briona is such a Daddy's girl. We love it.


I took her for her first swim. She loved the water. Dare I say I have a water baby???


PopPop let Kaileb sit on his motorcycle. He is obsessed! He is always talking about "his bike" now.


Matt and I also work with Kaileb on his fear of the deep water. He did so good swimming back and forth to us.

That was our 4th of July in a nut shell. There is so much more that happened this month that it can't possibly fit into one blog post. Be on the look out for part 2 soon!

I've been struggling lately - with just about everything. One thing that I have noticed is that postpartum depression is rarely talked about. It is kind of like one of those hush hush – swept under the rug to never be talked about dirty little secrets.
 
I am here to say that I have postpartum depression and I was strong enough to admit it to my doctor. It took all my pride to do it also. I felt weak admitting to it. But I realized that I had to do something for myself because my family deserves the best of me.
 
Through all this I have already lost friends but I have gained better friends because of this also. So here I am. PCOS, Postpartum Depression and all.
