one of my big goals for the year was to read 52 books. the last few years i have not focused on reading like i used to and it's an activity i thoroughly enjoy so i wanted to put myself up to the challenge. i am also listening to books on audible and definitely counting it in my 52 books to "read". i like to use my time at the gym to listen to books and since it's a good way to accomplish two of my 2017 goals in one shot, i'm all about it! i also listen when i'm folding laundry, doing housework when the girls are napping, really any time they're not awake, i'm trying to listen.

the shift from having one baby in the house to two babies is huge. in every aspect does it change your whole parenting game. before i had amelia, i heard so many friends say it was the hardest transition they've ever dealt with.

while it was hard for me, i think i had hyped myself up so much that i was anticipating the absolute worst and (thankfully) that wasn't the case. again, this is simply my experience and everyone has different experiences when it comes to bringing another life into the home.

for the longest time, i have had a huge love for books and i always imagined my kids too. but i didn't start from the get-go. i didn't focus much on reading with addison until she was about nine months or so and slowly it's progressed. we read at night to wind down, we keep books in the car as entertainment on short trips, both andrew and i encourage it as a part of her life.

below i wrote some tips on how we've encouraged reading over the past few years because now, at three years and one month, she is obsessed with books. (next week i'll share what ones we've been loving lately for kids!)

it's march first! this month flew by as it always does with being three days short of a full month but it was still such a wonderful one as we got to celebrate to very special birthdays and our five year anniversary.

it's been a month of progress with my goals but i did need to switch things up a little mid month. here is the progress i made on my february goals and my new march goals below.
