about where i’ve been, we had a baby!
This is a simple explanation.
WE HAD A BABY!
I all but forgot about my blog and outside life once she arrived. It’s been an incredible four and a half months with our (not so little) bean of a girl.
I am officially a (very) part-time working mom. Most of the time you will find me with my girl, taking walks, playing, going to mom’s groups, dancing and singing ridiculous songs completely off key, and reading all the books. In between playing with baby girl, I try to clean my house, get groceries, go to target, do laundry and make food. When I’m not doing all of that, I am working on my freelance business from home. Thankfully we have an incredible nanny who comes to care for baby girl a few afternoons a week so I can focus and get stuff done.
But it’s not all baby, all the time. We are trying to balance our marriage, social life, work (mostly for my husband) and quality family time. We love taking our bean on adventures, from going on boat rides at the lake to going on road trips with friends. I even managed to run a trail 25k, and my husband managed a three-day fishing trip! That’s a big victory. It’s been a whirlwind.
While it’s not all sunshine and unicorns over here (the first 10 weeks of her life were brutal, learning to be parents, dealing with horrid baby stomach issues and the utter lack of sleep); there is no doubt our seven years of hard work, pain, tears, frustration, and heartbreak resulted in THE most amazing creature we have ever met.
