TWO MONTHS!! She was born on Thanksgiving, exactly two months ago. It is hard to believe that she has been in my life for that long…it does go fast. How do you savor each moment, however?
I have often been asked, “How does it feel to be a mom?”; or “How are you doing?” To be honest, it’s a fog! You don’t have time to assess, introspectively. How am I doing?? hmmmm. How am I doing??? How am I doing? How am I doing?
HOW: That’s right! HOW does this work? What day is it? What time was her last feeding?
AM: I don’t have an AM. My “being” is not about ME anymore; That is actually quite freeing and satisfying. I’m tired of me anyway.
I…I am no longer I, but I do find that I must take care of “I” or I will not be around for HER.
DOING…. My doings are all about eating, sleeping, pooing, and burping. If I can, cleaning, showering and blogging.
So, “How am I doing?” I’ll get back to you in the next minute since it constantly changes.
One thing is secure: I LOVE THIS LITTLE GIRL MORE THAN I THOUGHT POSSIBLE. Looking up to celebrate her day was needed since it is so easy to get bogged down in the daily grind of … *see “DOING” above.
Recently, while perusing HOUZZ, the coolest design website besides my cousin’s design blog, I was inspired by the alphabet wall for the baby’s room. I just haven’t known what to do to decorate her already boring white space, so I’ve been in research mode. I came upon this design and realized I could do something similar! My dear mom bought wooden letters to paint white, and now we are designing each one.
A bit of advice. It’s worth reading even if you don’t have kids.
19 things you should say to your children. !! I love this reminder.
Yes! I think I have finally found a peaceful solution. After constipation issues with soy (and rashes), gas and fussiness with lactose, I’m happy to report the overly priced, but quite effective Nutrimagen is the answer.
She is the PERFECT child now! haha 😉
