Being a Mom

Yes this is another post that is totally going to revolve around being a mom :) Sorry, but I'm not sorry ;) Being a mom is my life right now, so it is what I spend most of my time thinking about :)

Being a mom is the most amazing and the most challenging thing that I have ever done. I love this little girl with all of my heart, and I know that she relies on Chanse and me for absolutely everything. At times this may feel a bit overwhelming, but for the most part it is amazing how naturally most things have come to me. My mom and friends said that it would, but I didn't really believe it until I experienced it for myself. I wanted to be a mom ever since I could remember, and now that I am one I feel so lucky! Chanse and I were laying in bed yesterday morning with Rose in between us, and we were just laughing and smiling at how sweet and precious she is.

Now I said that being a mom is amazing, but it is also challenging. I feel like it is important to note that life isn't sunshine and roses after you have a baby. You love this baby with all of your heart, but that doesn't mean that it isn't hard sometimes. I sometimes feel overwhelmed when I am waking up several times a night with my baby girl, or when she is fussy and I can't seem to make her happy. I am so blessed to have the support that I do from my amazing husband and family, and I don't know what moms do when they don't have extra help.

Chanse and I also have a different relationship now, and it feels deeper and fuller. We both feel united in raising Rosalie, and we want what is best for her. Now this doesn't mean that we don't have our tense moments where I get upset at him, or when he gets upset with me, but this is normal. Especially with those post pregnancy hormones haha.

The weather in Provo has been so incredibly amazing lately, so Chanse and I decided to take Rosalie on her very first walk. It was so nice to get out of the house because I can't really take Rosalie anywhere just yet because she is so small. However, my pediatrician did tell me that I could take her outside when the weather was nice, so I was excited :) It is funny how much joy our little walk brought me.

And because it is Thursday, here's a throwback pic :)
