Oh, hey…it’s me! It’s been ages since I’ve written a post, hasn’t it?!
I’ve been settling into motherhood and life as a stay-at-home mom. It is amazing and it is hard and it is beautiful and it is exhausting and it is invigorating all at once. I love being a mom. I honestly absolutely love it, despite how difficult it can be sometimes. I love spending my days with our darling daughter. She is such a joy. Her toothless grin makes my heart burst with love.
She has this amazing giggle that will turn even the worst day completely around. The best part of her laugh is you never know exactly what will bring it on, so sometimes she downright surprises me with it. And, I love that. I love the fact that it seems like she understands what her dad and I are saying and that she moves her mouth in a way that makes it appear she is trying to talk to us.
I am constantly in awe of her. I love watching her grow and learn new things. At the same time though, my heart is breaking because our little girl is not-so-little anymore. She turns five months this week. How is that even possible?!
Last week, she was having a particularly tough day due to teething. She woke up from her nap, and I could tell she was still tired. We snuggled up on the couch together and she fell asleep on me for a couple of hours. At one point during her nap, I found myself in tears because I want her to learn and to grow and to explore, but at the same time, it is so hard to really grasp how quickly she is growing up.
So, in between loving and learning, I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog and decided to stop thinking and to actually start doing, so here I am ready to share our little life again. I don’t plan to turn this into a blog that just focuses on parenthood, but it will most definitely come up quite frequently because our girl adds such an incredible dimension to our life that I know I will want to write about that. My idea is to write from the heart and go with the flow and see where that takes me.
I’m really excited to write because it is something I truly enjoy, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading what I have to share here in my little corner of the internet. So, thanks so much for reading (especially you, Dad)!
