    Christmas Lights through Baby’s Eyes

    My husband is super thoughtful, even on the days when it seems like we aren’t seeing eye to eye. Today I came home from work and went about our evening routine with getting the baby some dinner, reading to him, and playing a little before getting ready for bed. Once we headed upstairs to start bath time, I heard some pounding on the wall, like someone hammering. I went into the room and there he was, hanging up Christmas lights on the ceiling and the wall! I put our son down on the ground to play for a couple minutes while my husband finished the final touches. After, he turned…

    Little Boy

    A letter to my little boy… Your baby belly hangs out from underneath your nine-month-old shirts (which has been happening for a couple weeks now) and you’re not even eight-months-old yet. I can’t help but to want to eat you all up and kiss that little tummy just to hear you giggle with excitement. You are determined to accomplish something new everyday and it’s super frustrating for you when you don’t meet your own expectations. In that sense, you’re exactly like me! But don’t be too hard on yourself, baby; you’ll keep practicing and excel next time! To have your innocence would be such a blessing. You see your little…

    Fighting Within

    I recently read an article on a friend’s Facebook page that stated “motherhood is the equivalent of working two and a half full-time jobs.” Whomever decided to conduct this research, I seriously wanted to give them a high-five! At the end of the day when I’m exhausted, but can’t really show what it is that I’ve actually done all day to make me so tired… this quote hits the nail right on the head. I’ve kept a human being alive another day; that is an accomplishment in itself! What I’ve learned most in the past four months that our son has been in our lives is to go with the…

    Being Mommy

    The day our little one came into this world is a day our lives changed more than we could have ever imagined. Heck, the moment we found out we were expecting was a life changing moment! All the words in the world could not begin to describe the love I have for our baby boy and the joy I feel when I see his smile lighting up the room. It’s the best feeling holding someone so small and innocent while knowing that they are yours to cherish. With all this love, there also comes great challenges being a mommy. There’s the constant self doubt if you’re making the right decision…

    A Letter

    A letter to my husband… We’ve been through happy and sad times in the 14 years that we’ve been together. We’ve grown up together and struggled through some hard life lessons. But through it all, we’ve learned together and our love has become stronger. While our love is not perfect, I can say with my whole heart that I wouldn’t change our experiences. We are most definitely not the same people or couple that we were when our story began. And I love you more now than I could have ever imagined. I say all this to express how I felt about you before we entered into the greatest adventure…
