So, this blog thing is time consuming. Sure, it doesn't take too long just to think of something and write it out. But when you have a baby constantly wanting her mommy, it seems like it takes an entire day just to write a ten minute blog.

Have you ever just had one of those days where you feel like it goes by SO quick, yet lasted forever? That is an everyday thing within the mind of a new mommy. Being a mom is the most amazing thing in the world, but I was not expecting to have my life change SO much.

Don't get me wrong, the change was DEFINITELY for the better. It was just surprising at how much changed with one thing. She has taken over my entire life. My heart, my soul, and my entire way of living.

Gotta pee? Okay, lets wait until the baby is calm.
Gotta eat? Okay, lets hope the baby is okay sitting for half an hour to do it.
Want to take a bath? HA! That time is a luxury anymore.

BUT, it is something you have to learn to adjust to. I have learned to take baths or showers when she has just finished eating and fallen asleep for the night.
Eating is still a chore, but my brother has been nice enough to sit with her the last couple of days... Poor thing freaks out whenever she starts to cry. He doesn't know what to do. I want to laugh, but feel bad that he doesn't know what to do.

So, I guess I am gonna go back to watching 21 Jumpstreet and enjoy the baby's nap time...

Much love!


  1. It's ok... Things won't bee quite so hectic much longer! Little Miss is already the big *1 MONTH OLD*! (<-- Gosh, time flies!) Pretty soon, she'll start sleeping through the night. When my Monster was 2 months old, I switched the nipples on his bottles to #2 nipples *once* a day (his last bottle before bedtime), and mixed in about an ounce of rice cereal with his milk. It was just enough to keep his tummy full and he started sleeping 6 or 7 hours through the night :) You're a wonderful Mommy and Miss Isabella is very lucky to have you! I love you... Tell Bella her Auntie sends big kisses!!

  2. Children are a gift but its harder when you are a single mother with two children one 4 year old and then having a new born. That is definitely a challenge. I should know from baby sitting for a coworker and living with her. But it will get easier :)
