Hello Santa! Today baby girl met Santa for the first time and she was in love with all the jingle bells connected to him! I couldn’t pry her off his lap! Looks like someone just might love Christmas as much as her mama! YES!!!
Easily, handlebar mustaches!
You know those moments that put things into perspective? Things seems so out of whack, and then bam that moment happens and FINALLY some clarity! That moment was captured in this picture.
Life is not ideal right now. I do not have a job and the job hunt is much more exhausting than I could have ever imagined. My baby girl is popping out teeth left and right and she is in so much pain, breaks my heart. Slimmy has extra stress because, well I am ALWAYS around now and he rarely gets a break from his lady loves-and again I don’t have a job so I am sure that weighs on him as well.
This transition has been interesting, never easy, but always rewarding. Marriage is tough in itself, but a new marriage and a baby right away can make things so beyond chaotic. We are doing it though, and doing it well too!
Some days I am frustrated with my marriage. We are not always on the same page or in sync and the lack of sleep from being new parents has us pitted against each other at times.
Some days I am frustrated with myself. I want to be a better wife and mother, I don’t have it all figured out yet. It’s an awful place to want to do more for your family, but your too exhausted to put your thoughts into actions.
Some days being a mom is heartbreaking. When you are blessed with a kid who literally only cries when she is hungry or needs to be changed, when she cries because she is in pain-it is almost unbearable.
I think a lot, I worry more, I am fully aware of this, but every now and then one of those moments that I was talking about happens and suddenly you can let out a sigh of relief.
When my friend Rebeccah sent over this teaser shot from our family photo shoot, she probably had no idea she was also giving me peace of mind. Despite the fact that my world is in chaos, that shot of my beautiful daughter and husband stopped my whole world and forced me to be thankful.
Thankful that I get to see them smile everyday, thankful that both of their smiles are contagious, so no matter what I am smiling a lot as well. Thankful that me and Slimmy, regardless of issues, stay united as a team and committed to each other and talk often about adding to our family.
Thankful for the past, and the present and extremely hopeful for the future. We are not perfect by any means but imperfectly perfect looks good on us!
The Sound of your heartbeat is amazing! Still gives me goosebumps! I think soon we will be ready to create another little heartbeat!
This is how I told the world about you!
NO H8 -Got to teach her early the importance of equality.
