Howdy! And welcome to my blog- The J Word! I want to do a little intro and let you get to know me as well as I hope to get to know you!
A little about me!
My name is Jaiden- I’m a twenty something mom of THREE wonderful little girls, all 2 and under! Funnily enough, we actually have “Irish Triplets”- which means that our kids are all less than a year apart from each other- so as you can imagine, we stay busy busy busy! I (somehow) manage to keep everything balanced for the most part, while also juggling being a working mom. I was SO excited to learn I was having daughters- even though I’m not a super “girly” person, having brothers growing up made me terrified of all of the trials and tribulations that boys bring (not that girls don’t have their own separate dramas!) We have so much fun- they’re full of energy, and each have a distinct personality already.
So who am I?
I am a mother, but I am so much more than that! I am a friend, soon to be wife, and my own crazy, super busy person. I love music, reading, and even cooking for my family (we were gifted an Instantpot a while back from my parents- it has completely CHANGED my outlook on cooking dinner for my family, I LOVE IT!) I LOVE to bake- it tends to be my stress reliever on particularly difficult days or weeks. When I’m not working, I’m either trying to learn more about the fitness world which is a new adventure I’ve been embarking on, or just wrestling with my crazy girls.
I’m engaged to my wonderful fiance, whom I’ve been with since my end of my high-school career. We’ve gone from friends, to coworkers, to lovers and finally parents! He’s wonderfully strong and smart, and I can’t imagine going through this crazy adventure with anyone else. We’ve known each other for several years and been together almost as many at this point.
Get to know the girls…
My little girls are sweethearts!
Our oldest is just over two, and her nickname is Monkey. Monkey is independent and determined- which can sometimes come off as controlling concerning her younger sisters! She LOVES to make sure that things are going the way they’re “supposed to”- or at least the way she wants them to! She loves to play, especially outside, and is never short on energy or things to say! She loves to climb on everything, which is what inspired her nickname! She knows she’s the big sister, and loves to act like it as well.
Our middle daughter, Bear, is the sweetest, goofiest of the bunch (so far!) At just over a year old, she absolutely loves to cuddle and hug, and is always open to just relaxing and sprawling out with anyone who will let her. Bear is always looking for ways to keep up with her older sister- whether it be in play, walking, or anything else! She gets very grumpy- hence the nickname, Baby Bear! She’s such a goofy, wonderful addition to our little family.
Our youngest daughter, Bug, is the smiliest baby I have ever seen. She is always so happy, and full of wonder with the new world around her. She’s only a few months old right now, so everything is pretty amazing for her! She doesn’t have a whole lot that she can do as of now, so she spends her time sleeping, eating, and blessing us with her wonderful gummy smiles. She’s a sweet, cuddly baby with so much love to give! She was so tiny when she was born, and so very quiet with big eyes, hence her nickname.
