Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a mommy, just like my mom. My childhood is chock-full of memories playing “mommy,” and mimicking my mom throughout her daily routine. I had a doll that I named, “Pretty Baby,” (I know, real original…) that I carried EVERYWHERE, and I even had a play ironing board (it was plastic…) that I’d used to “iron” Pretty Baby’s clothes while my mom ironed our family’s.
Before I met you, I would dream about who you would be. I dreamed of the family I hoped would be mine one day. And those dreams didn’t come close to the life you have built with me.
When we started dating, I liked you so much. So much, it scared me. I hoped beyond every hope that you’d be the one I walked down the aisle towards.
When I was in 6th grade, my parents separated. More specifically, my parents came to the decision that my dad would move out. It was heartbreaking for me. You see, I was a total daddy’s girl. When I was younger, one of my favorite parts of the day was when the door leading inside from the garage would open, and I’d hear my dad walk through the hallway, his loafers clicking on the hardwood.
So, you may (or may not) have noticed I haven’t been blogging lately. Life has been traveling at a million miles a minute, and I’ve been doing everything I can to just breathe and take it all in. I feel like it was April just yesterday, and now it’s JUNE!!
I’ve honestly really missed blogging. I keep blog topics in a note on my phone, and I’m really excited about a lot of them, (still to come: how to survive flying solo with a baby) I just have no time to actually sitting down and write.
I can’t believe our little guy will be a whole half year old in ONE month!! It’s been such a fast and fun five months, each stage gets better and better! There is definitely a part of me that misses my teeny tiny baby, but I can’t get enough of each and every smile and laugh coming from him!
Knox’s big milestone achievement this month was rolling over from his back to his belly!
