I’ve always been good with kids, so it’s a given that I thought being a mom would be easier for me. But as it turns out, it is so hard you guys! Seriously, no walk in the park. I’m talkin’ sleepless nights, worrying about every little things; dozens of firsts and the mood swings- oh, the mood swings, hits and misses.
It was a complete roller coaster ride.
I loved every minute of it.
My daughter Lilac is 9 months old now and is already turning out to be a little diva (my husband, Lucas likes to think it’s because of me, but it’s so NOT!!). When she was first born on the other hand, she has been just the tiniest, most fragile thing I’ve ever seen. I remember when they handed her to me for the very first time, all swaddled in flannel, her face pink and pinched.
“I know you,” I cooed, stroking her petal-soft cheek with my finger. “You’re the little human who’s been keeping me up all night.” And I swear at that moment she smiled.
I was in love.
It hasn’t been an easy journey, but it’s been one of the best. Of course with time things got a little easier, she grew bigger and started to make her displeasure known every now and then and now, it’s just a walk in the park. Yes, I’m still a little scared but what parent isn’t afraid of their little one. Right now I am just happy to see her grow into a beautiful person. Her curly brown hair and big blue eyes can melt anyone, even my husband’s father who is a marine.
You will keep getting updates on how amazing my daughter is and how she grows and all the little itty bitty details because believe me, she is my tiny miracle so I will document every little thing about her life and you will love it!! Actually, I know you will love it, love her without even trying.
