Happy New Year!
I know, I know - it's already the end of February.
This whole mom thing isn't easy. I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but for some reason, I didn't think it would be this hard. Don't get me wrong, having my daughter has been the biggest blessing in my life! She has changed our world, and has made it so much better. Her smiles and laughter get me through each day.
There is so much more planning involved with just getting out of the house (which we need to do more often). Are we leaving near a nap time, meal time, or fussy time? Is there a place where I can nurse her (I really need to figure out how to use my NuRoo Nursing scarf)? How presentable do I really need to look? Is there anything that I'm shopping for that I can't just buy using Amazon Prime?
It is getting easier, though. Those first few months are still somewhat blurry, but that's okay. Once my girl started getting to be more mobile, things got easier. She's not sleeping through the night, and I'm still a human pacifier, but this is just a season.
She is going to be 8 months next week. EIGHT MONTHS OLD. Time is literally flying. It's different when I say that as a mom. though. This little person is growing before our eyes. Every day she is learning new things and discovering the world around her. We've been able to document all those milestones, and while they have happened recently, they still seems so far away.
She is my constant reminder to enjoy the present.
and I promise I'll be updating regularly!
