Where does the time go?? Time has always gone by quickly, but I am discovering that the day that "Mommy" replaces your birth name is the day that the clock goes on high-speed! Is it Christmas yet? It will be before we know it!! I seriously can't believe my last post was in March! So here's the quick summary of March to July for me and RuffleButts...
March - ended up in the hospital with early labor
Early April - ended up in the hospital again with early labor
April 4th - our little one decided to finally make his entrance...for real this time!
Yes, you read that right HIS entrance!! We were blessed with a precious little boy, Jonas David Schaub.
April 6th - I returned to the office, with Jonas in tow (maternity leave...what's that?!)
May 11th - we relocate the entire RuffleButts office, warehouse & team to our new space...with Jonas in tow
May through June - working at the new office...with Jonas in tow
late June - my little boy has his first day of "school"
July 1st - here I am, seriously I feel like it's still March!
I realized recently that when Aubrey was born, all of these women kept approaching me in public to see our little squirt, and they all had the same response..."enjoy it cause they grow up so fast." At the time, it seemed like she would be a baby for years to come. Now, the 2nd time around, I finally get it! They were so right, they do grow up incredibly fast. I am truly soaking up every minute I get with my little ones and treasuring every bit of it.
In a way, my children are mirroring RuffleButts for me. They were born within a year of one another. I feel like I have watched the business crawl, then walk, and now with our new warehouse and incredible team, I feel like my little baby is growing up! It could not be more rewarding to witness this process. And the best part is, this baby, RuffleButts, is being raised by a village. Our team and our customers have such a hand in where we are today. I know, for a fact, that we would not be here without them, without you.
