I always thought I’d blog more here once I had a baby. I thought it would give me more to talk about. And, while this might change in the future when I can do more with Isaac, my days are mostly the same. But that’s not a bad thing!
I’m laying here on the floor next to Isaac, finishing up our day listening to him sing/hum/groan along to his music monkey. I had the day off because we didn’t have any snow days this year and my school district had saved today as an inclimant weather makeup day. I got to spend my whole day with this little snail and he/we/I:
- cried because teething is no fun
- took a shower together to get so fresh and so clean clean
- giggled at Mommy’s singing
- went to the doctor for his (almost) 4 month shots and wellness check. He’s just under 17 pounds and just over 25 inches.
- snuggled and then napped because shots are no fun.
- cooked spaghetti for supper while Daddy vacuumed.
People always say that you can’t imagine how much you could possibly love your children before they’re born, but I did. It makes it all the more special that I get to because for a long time I feared I wouldn’t be able to have any. And motherhood isn’t made up of big things that are easily blogged about. It’s the little everyday things like watching him finally fall asleep on my chest, tired and irritable after a difficult day. Deep inside, I love and know I was made for every bit of it.
