These past almost ten months have been amazing and haaaard. Parenting is no joke, in case you hadn't heard.
We've got a mover and a shaker on our hands. She's extreme, always wanting to be upside down or moving somewhere she shouldn't be heading. I thought I had more time before I said "no" all day long, but just the opposite! Worth it though when I feel her little pudgy arms around me or hear her squeals of delight with Daddy.
This was also my first Mother's Day- typically a day associated with mostly negative emotions, a day we just try to ignore and power through. This year I didn't know how I'd feel, so we still played hooky from church. Hubby got coffee and breakfast for us, we went to a fun place for lunch, he and Cailyn gave me a lovely necklace... I think I'll always have a difficult time with this particular day, but there is now a huge amount of positive to balance out some of the negative. Still a surreal experience to know someone calls me "Mama" (or will one day, dang it! Haha!).
