Yesterday, we celebrated one month with Emma. In many ways, it’s absolutely crazy that our little miracle has been with us for a whole month. (And crazy that I’ve shared so little about it all! Sorry about that. So much more to come. Just. Always. So. Tired.) In other ways, though, I almost can’t remember life without Emma. It seems that she’s always been a part of us.
When I first became a mom, I was constantly saying to Mitch, “I think this is the best moment of my life.” “No, wait. This is.” “Oh my god. I’m having another ‘best moment of my life’ experiences.”
And while I assumed I’d become a little less emotional as the weeks passed, I haven’t. The moments just keep coming. I must think about how much I love and adore this little girl, how much I love and adore having a family, and how much I love and adore this stage of life a thousand times per day. Maybe more?
Never have I been so happy. Never have I felt a love like this.
I’d really like to sit here and write all about the last month of our lives, but once again, I’m way too tired, haha. I know, I know. I sound like a broken record full of empty promises. But guys: I really can’t convey just how sleepy I am at the end of the day. Should I try to write earlier? Probably. But there are tummies to tickle, noses to kiss, and hugs to be had.
Until I get my act together, though, follow us on Instagram Stories! I hated SnapChat, as it was just one more social media outlet I had to manage and it was super confusing to me. (Which is why I never did it.) But I just got on board with Instagram Stories, and I’m having a lot of fun with it. Of course, it would work a LOT better if my phone wasn’t 99 percent full (which constantly prevents me from recording), but I am managing to film quite a bit of our everyday lives with Emma. It’s been really fun. :)
Happy One Month, Emma! I absolutely love being your mom. And I absolutely love you.
