almost a month-and-a-half in.

by - 12:07

So...I've been a little distracted with this little girl.  And there's a teeny tiny part of me that feels a little guilty for neglecting the blog, but there's a HUGE part of me that welcomes the time off.

Today, I find myself with some down time. (She's napping and all the housework is done!  Huzzah!) As I look at her quietly laughing in her sleep or smiling because of her dreams, my heart swells and breaks at the same time.  I cannot believe she's already nearly a month-and-a-half old.  Last night, I had to store most of her newborn-sized clothing and I was a little choked up.  It sounds so cliché to say, but they really do grow up so fast.  I have a feeling time will just continue to move at lightning speed and there's nothing I can do to slow it down, try as I might.

Motherhood--what a beautiful, intimidating, exciting, and scary time in my life.  A friend asked me the other day how it feels being a mom.  My answer:  oddly natural.  Everything is trial-and-error.  And you learn really fast how to go about it.  I'm obviously no expert; I'm still learning the ropes (which I know I will keep on doing) but what a wonderful experience it's turning out to be.  And yes, it's hard.  But not so hard that it's impossible.  It's challenging and has tested me but I have to say, I'm pretty proud of how both Ryan and I are doing at this whole parenting thing.

I will continue to post on my blog, but it will be irregular for the time being.  Thank you to all of you who are still out there reading.

  1. I seriously cannot wait until I meet your little bundle of joy; she is so precious! And I love that she's wearing those tiny, tiny shoes! So cute!

    And yes, they grow so very fast. It's a little sad but just think about all the fun things you'll get to do with her when she can walk around and actually communicate with you with words. I miss the newborn days but I really do look forward to what Olivia will do next.
