Busy Busy

Hello blog!  It’s been a while.  I’ve been busy creating a human!  That’s all.  Being a mama is everything people described it as…. which is pretty indescribable.  Days of intense challenges followed by immediate love that makes your heart feel like it’s about to burst.  The first few weeks were brutal.  Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.  I’m almost writing this to myself for when we talk about baby #2.  Around 1 month I started to feel like “ok, we can function.  I’m okay.”  I still wasn’t ready to take baby out to a restaurant but I felt more comfortable getting him to and fro.  Fro usually being the doctor’s office or Target.  By the way, Target is my safe haven.  Anything and everything in one store.  In the future apocalypse, I hope to create our home base there.  Between the diaper aisle and women’s attire.

I will preface this by saying I love my tiny human and wouldn’t change anything about my current situation.  BUT first a little rant.  Whoever told me it was easy to work at home with a newborn (society most likely) was smoking crack.  FYI it’s impossible.  Especially as the mama.  If you’re not changing a diaper, you’re having the life sucked out of you by nursing every 2 hours.  Night.  And.  Day.  People said “they sleep all the time!  You can definitely get stuff done.”  Wrong.  Especially when you do something that requires creativity and constant thought for more than 15 minutes.  I had tons of help from my husband and family but after a few weeks, Daddy had to go back to work and it was just the two of us.  Tiny humans like attention, whether they’re sleeping or not.  By the time I fed him, changed him and got him back to sleep, I could barely keep my eyes open and it’s pretty hard to resist napping next to a sleeping baby.

Just realized I still need to finish off my pregnancy updates, but finishing my weddings from last year definitely takes precedence.  Trying to get it all done while still love on my family is no easy task.  One by one I know it’ll come together and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Plus, just look at that face 🙂
