March goals


First, let's look back at February. I knew the goals I set last month had a 50/50 chance of getting done since I was expecting Bodie. With him arriving eight days ahead of his due date, I am even more surprised anything got accomplished!

February Goals

1- Post a picture on Instagram every morning. For the last two years, I posted a picture capturing some portion of my routine or aspect of my morning with the #goadabodemornings. It is a fun way to look back on a short period of time (one month) and see what has changed and remained constant over the past two years. I'm really excited to do it this year since we expect to add another child to our family!

2- Sort, wash and put away all baby boy clothes. All the baby clothes we had prior to Bodie's birth were washed and sorted. I have rearranged where his things are stored a number of times and done a pretty decent job of keeping up with baby laundry.

3- Finish strong in the officeHonestly, I finished strong in that I wrapped up all my projects a week before I was scheduled to begin my leave. Mentally, I did not feel like things were in fact tied up because we had two snow days at what was the end of my time at work so I didn't feel much closure.

4- Read/listen to two books. I am so bad at finishing books unless they are in an audio format I can listen to. 

5- Create a labor playlist. I didn't get to this at all. 


March Goals

1- Eat 4-5 servings of fruits/veggies per day. I have been so bad about my intake of healthy foods and I really need to get back on track.

2- Send out Bodie's birth announcements. I ordered them, but have yet to address and mail them :)

3- Bake Irish soda bread. With St Patrick's Day around the corner, I love to bake something festive for the holiday. The recipe I have is real easy and I love a good morning pastry/baked good.

4- Not feel guilty for snuggling my newborn. There have been so many things pulling at my time recently and I've caught myself feeling bad for holding my son, but then I realize I'll never get these days back so I just want to soak it all in.

5- Keep up with thank you cards. I'm so grateful for all the generous friends who have given us gifts  for Bodie or brought meals after he was born and I hope people know how much I appreciate their thoughtfulness so I am trying to keep up with writing/sending thank you cards.
