Nearly 16 months ago the most wonderful thing happened to me. I became a mom. Nine months of a pregnancy that was very stressful for me (but otherwise, not too bad), nearly a week of off and on labor and two hours of pushing (with infinite profanity) and I met the man that would make me realize my most important role yet.
I’ve spent much of my life wondering what I was meant to do. I love taking pictures. I love writing. I love singing and I love sleeping. All of these things are things I enjoy but none of these things were anything that I was passionate about to the point of wanting to define myself by them. At 6:23 pm on a Thursday in May I realized that I had found my “thing.” I was in love with an 8 lb 6 oz baby boy and and in love with being his mom.
I have learned so much about myself, my baby, my relationship, my love, my life… everything just by having this perfect little man in my life. I hope to share some of these things with you all because sometimes the struggle is real and its hard out there for a new mommy– but every second is worth it and you learn so much that helps you get to the next moment when you learn even more. It is a work in progress. I am a work in progress. Lets progress together.
