|Being a mom is TOUGH!!
It has been quite a journey… but as most mom’s might say “Gee where has the time gone?” I don’t really feel it fly by all that fast.
Emily will be 9 months on Friday and she is the sweetest, friendliest, happiest child… we her to bits n pieces. She is extremely strong for her young age and very busy! I know, I know all babies are busy but geees-louise!!!! This child does not stop!! Everything she does is in double time – as soon as you pick her up she wants to turn in the opposite direction. She’s crawling so fast I wonder if she sometimes gets carpet burn, lol.
It’s been a good week or so that she’s been standing and taking her first few steps… again some say this is early but boy does she want to get moving! The confidence she has about being on the move is amazing. I also find that she doesn’t cry for any little bump… bruises all over her legs and even bum from all the up down around and around!!!
It’s always a heart-warming moment every morning when she wakes up and you’re the first person she sees -> Ah that smile will get her out of ANYTHING!!! Such a precious PRECIOUS girl we have made J Emily loves the daycare that she’s in although mom is finding it tough in the traffic every morning we know it’s the best place for her right now.
Had a brief ‘heart2heart’ with hubby the other night (granted he was ready for bed and switched off the light after I said I wanted to chat…. that gets me angry) Anyway, I shared the fact that as much as I’m the mother and most things come more naturally to mom’s it’s still very unfair that every night when baby niggles or cries out I’m the one that always gets up through the night. Lately I’ll admit I’m still struggling to be the model parent that will do anything for my child – no sleep needed… NO, sleep is very much needed actually!!! While hubby just turns over or starts snoring while I’m feeding bubs… it really gets to me. I often think I need to speak to someone professionally about these issues. Other mom’s around me (close friends that have had babies after I had mine) their offspring are ANGELS… textbook babies… sleeping for hours on end and breast feeding so nicely it makes me want to vomit with envy!!
Emily has tummy issues – she’s suffered from winds from birth. I’m still not sure if it’s the formula we’re giving her or if it’s now the solids that we’ve introduced. Oh forgot to mention… she has 4 teeth already and the last two nights have been sleepless as I presume more are about to cut through.
I love you my angel - - - mom just needs help sometimes
