Hey y’all! I’m still on my blog break but just publishing this quick post to say…SHE’S HERE! I’ve been waiting for so long to say that! On March 23rd, just five hours after a routine prenatal visit we found ourselves in the operating room about to meet our baby. She arrived at 37 weeks 5 days and in a tiny 5lb 11oz package of pure perfection!
While a happy, healthy baby was my main wish, a baby girl has made me too happy to even describe. To be able to say “she’s here” is surreal to me. Heck it’s surreal to even accept that I have a baby. I am a girly girl and having a daughter is the only (and pretty unrealistic) way I ever pictured a baby in my arms. I am on cloud nine.
Motherhood is the hardest thing I have ever found myself doing (I know, I was warned!) but her sweet little face is too much! In all the hurdles I’m facing day to day, I could never be frustrated when I look at her. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by her mere existence and her face makes me swell up with pride.
I’m still learning to ‘mom’ every day. In fact, every day brings another challenge. I’m sure I’ll get into the swing of things eventually but for now I am still often overwhelmed and always exhausted so the blog is on the back burner. For over a year I’ve said at least once per fortnight that I’m going to quit blogging and my pride kept me from walking away. I have to admit, I miss it so much! I’ll check in every once in a while and still be active on social media.
If anyone wants to give me some great new mom survival tips in the comments then please, go ahead 🙂
