I have completely neglected blogging of any sort but for good reason. Well, good reason in that I have a little munchkin who is now crawling and getting into everything but bad reason, because naps are few and far between. For some reason she can function on much less sleep than I think she should be having and me having any time to do anything is seriously lacking. I do try to do split second chores etc. while she is quietly playing but we all know that can last a very short time. She is napping right now and so, we will see how long it lasts!
I think we are finally getting out of the new baby fog (I definitely still have those days though!) but at the same time we now have a moving, crawling baby on our hands and I’m honestly not sure which is harder. She is much more vocal now, but still can’t express what she wants which has started with some intense 7 month old tantrums. It is crazy to think how she went from being a helpless newborn to someone with such a budding personality in such a short time period. I still look at her and am in awe that we created this wonderful human being, even though she makes me go crazy on a daily basis!
After all the struggle to get her here, keep her well, and get to this point, I am pretty impressed we have it mostly together (at least I think). When they tell you having a baby changes everything, they aren’t kidding. It changes your marriage, your time, your body (in ways I had no idea!), how you think, how you act and more. There are so many things I never realize (or probably couldn’t have realized) prior to having her. As much as my life is so much more difficult now and I have another human to worry about instead of just myself, she is so worth it. Seeing her learn and explore and develop as quickly as she has makes the sleepless nights, early mornings, and long days so incredibly worth it.
