Rocky seas, safe harbour…

Even though I know that there are times ahead where the going will be rough & choppy, being a mom & holding my munchkin in my arms grounds me. I no longer feel like a boat being tossed from wave to wave, for I know that for him I will always be a safe harbour to steer to.

But in truth he is the cardinal point by which my days are directed, his future the destination of my new journey. I already feel blessed.

Sip & See

So I decided that I wanted to have a sip & see party for Tré back when I was planning the baby shower. I had seen it on a reality show (Preachers of LA I think… don’t judge me lol) and thought it was such a cute idea.  Loved ones coming together to meet your new addition. Yes they have seen pictures (especially if they are Facebook friends or on instagram as I’m obsessed and can’t help but to post at least a couple a day) but that’s nothing like seeing him in person.
There was good food…

There were desserts!

image

There were hugs…

image

There was fussing over the man of the hour…

image

There were cuddles with daddy…

image

& there was a desire to keep the party going until it got dark…

So happy with how it turned out. Great time was has by all.

Forever & a day

It’s been so long since I’ve written a blog post that I’m not even sure what to write about. I think back to what I was writing about in years prior – vacations,  farmers market scores,  juicing,  head stands… stuff I no longer have time for thanks to this guy…

Now my days consist of: eat, sleep, poo, pee & repeat. Quite the life. But I’m happy to be at his beck & call. & my life will never be the same again.
My mornings now look like this…

& if I want to get anything done it is like this…

But I wouldn’t trade it for the world as he has forever changed Easter for me (he was born April 5th, Easter Sunday, at 1am) & Mother’s Day as I’m no longer just a daughter but a mother too.

I’m looking forward to a lifetime of firsts with the new man in my life.
