Your Moment Is Now

I'm not sure how you came across this post, maybe you subscribe, maybe you saw it on social media, maybe you found it in a Google search. (If you found it by googling shoot me an email I'm really curious how you found me. :) 


But regardless of how you wound up here-you are here. And I would like to take this moment to encourage you to take a moment to breathe.



I find that sometimes life gets so hectic and so rushed and so hurried that I literally forget to just stop and take a moment to breathe.


 Your moment is now.

Motherhood

Motherhood - wow - need I say more! Yep, our little one is here. He didn't have an easy time getting here either. But after a grueling 33 hour labor, he made his arrival. He was late term premature but weighed 7lb 10.8 ounces.

I tried my best to prepare myself for motherhood. I read the books. I flipped through the magazines. I went to child birth classes. But when he was brought to my room for the first time after coming back from NICU and left with us, I realized I could read all the books in the world and it wouldn't prepare me for this. I have never felt such love and fear at the same time. Here he was, this little person that I am responsible for... I am his mother - my husband his father.

I was on strict bedrest, unable to get out of bed for any reason.  As I watched the love in my husband's eyes as he picked up his son, I knew we could do this. We wouldn't know all the answers - no parent does. But we had this.

Our little one is two months old today. It's hard to believe that he is two months already. But I can't remember my life without him.
