Still learning…Always loving

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.
