My How Things Change!

Monday, September 21, 2015

I'm not sure how it's been six whole weeks since we brought Harper home from the hospital. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind and as each day passes I'm amazed at how much has changed. While there are definitely parts of motherhood that have gone more smoothly than I anticipated, there are also aspects that are more difficult. As I type this I am sitting on the couch with Harper in my arms because she gets fussy when I tried to put her in her swing. So here I sit typing this on the notes section of my phone and I'll transfer it later. My how life changes so quickly. My goal is to get more blog posts up now that life is starting to get a bit more settled, but that may have to include more posts typed on my phone and edited later. Whatever works I suppose, but I miss my blogging community.

Motherhood has come fairly easily in most aspects. I'm absolutely head over heels in love with our little girl and it makes the sleepless nights so much easier. I'm thankful that dan has time off too and is able to be here to watch her change every day and to help me out on a daily basis. I truly am amazed at all of the moms who do it on their own right away. Dan is lucky enough to have a lot of available time off so we have really been enjoying our family time.

Before having Harper I would have been the first to tell you how much I love sleep, and while that love hasn't gone away, the amount of time I'm able to sleep on any given night has definitely changed. I figured that I would really struggle with the lack of sleep, but I'm surprised at how much easier it is than I thought it would be. Breastfeeding has also been another part of motherhood that has gone differently than I thought it would. I was never one of those women who was excited to breast feed but wanted to try it and do it as long as it was working for Harper and I. While it definitely hasn't been the easiest thing and I still don't love it, it has gone so well for Harper!

So in between feedings and cuddles, we've been busy decorating the house with lots of fall decor, finishing up decorating other areas of our house and canning lots of apples and other tasty recipes which I plan on getting back to sharing. Hopefully I haven't lots all readers in between my hiatus and my plethora of baby related posts. I do still have a few more up my sleeve, but I'll try to space those out a bit. So that's what we've been up to around these parts!

For moms or moms to be, what are ways you relax or are planning to get some me time with a little one?
