Baby Emmett turns 6 months old next week. Half a year! Everyone told me the second child's first year would go by even faster, and I'm starting to really see why. I think maybe it's because the parents are simply a lot busier with the jump from one kid to two, or maybe it's just because the milestones aren't brand new like they were with the first babe, so they just sort of hop on by. (That sounds kind of awful like they don't matter as much, but that's not what I mean at all. They just seem to come pass more quickly, I guess.) Regardless, when I take a minute to actually sit down and think about how quickly time has gone since I was giving birth to my sweet little man, it almost takes my breath away.
A few of you have emailed asking when I'll be sharing Emmett's birth story - something I promised months ago. The truth is, I honestly haven't had the time to sit down and write it out. Essley's birth story took me an entire day, and while her birth was much more intense than Emmett's, I know it will need to happen on a day when I can really focus (and a day when I am not tired, which feels like an elusive event these days). I absolutely will be sharing it though. I'll make a goal of doing it this summer, but if not, I will get it up before his first birthday. Pinky swear.
I also posted a lot more updates along the way during Essley's first year than I have with Emmett. While I'm not above admitting that what you hear about the second child simply not being as well documented as the first 100% holds true for me, it's also because I tend to share more family moments these days over on my Instagram and Snapchat (@bubbyandbean for both). Posting occasional updates like this here is important to me so things stay genuine and it's not all about work and sponsored content, but let's face it - social media has become the place to share more personal moments.
Thank you for letting me share these occasional peeks into life with my babes! I always love seeing other people's too, so if you have a recent post or photos on IG with your little ones, share the links in the comments so I can check them out,
