Life's greatest blessing. A group that dreams, laughs, plays and loves together. Those whom you can always count on. Always present not only in the good times. The MOST precious gift.
I cannot believe we are getting ready to wrap up 2017! Is it weird that I'm sad this year is ending because my baby was born this year!? I don't want to face the fact that in just a few short months we will be celebrating her first birthday! This has been the best as well as the most life changing year of my life. Adjusting to being a new mom, having a new baby and a new lifestyle was harder than I could have ever expected and is not as easy as cute Instagram photos portray. Being young and the first of your friends to have a baby can leave you feeling lonely and like you have no one to relate to. It took a lot of tears and sleepless nights but I think I've finally gotten over the hump of exhaustion, I have the confidence to take on any new situations motherhood throws at me and most of all I wholeheartedly understand the definition of selfless love. I'm beyond grateful for a husband who is so hands on with his baby girl and works so hard to provide for us. I don't know what I'd do without Patrick's positive attitude, comic relief and him reminding me that I'm doing a good job at this mom gig. Going into the New Year I want to always remind myself to never take anything for granted, to try and always be present and to love like crazy.
I really want to thank you for following along on my journey through motherhood. I really have loved using social media to document life's precious moments and being able to connect with other moms has been such a blessing!
Wishing you all the happiest New Year!
Welcome to my life as a wife and soon- to-be mama!
