A Bittersweet Move

It’s never easy to say good bye to certain chapters of our lives. Especially the ones that bring us so much joy. I am so sad but also so excited to be closing one chapter of our lives and opening up a new one to make brand new memories in.

My husband and I made the decision a few months back to sell our home to start a new venture in our lives. Now that we are actually in the process of selling and moving to a new place I am finding that I am more sad than I initially thought I would be. When I think about all of the memories we have made with Baylor in this house I can’t help but feel a little hesitant to let go.

This is the home where we waited so anxiously for our little boy to arrive. This is where we brought him home from the hospital. This is the home where we had his first birthday. This is the place where we have learned to become the parents we are today. And while this may not seem like much to some, it means a whole lot to me. I don’t want to ever forget these things or forget where they happened.

While I am so sad about moving I also feel incredibly blessed that we have the opportunity to provide a brand new place for him to make so many more memories. I am slowly but surely figuring out how to let go and learning how to make this move as comfortable as possible for my sweet boy. I am so excited for all the firsts that will happen in this new house and getting to document them. I still hope that Baylor will always have a sense of our first home and the great things that happened here though.

Thankfully, we will always have some of those sweet memories documented here at Disney Baby. And for that I am forever grateful.
