Baby

8 Month Update

• By

Baby boy is 8 months old now.  It’s hard to believe just how much life has changed in the past few months!

I expected to be a big crybaby right about now watching him crawl, pull up on everything, and get teeth but, I feel more grateful than anything.  Most of you know my journey with PCOS and getting pregnant naturally.  It is surreal  looking at his little face and thinking of all the years I wondered when and if I would have a little one of my own. He is more than I could have ever envisioned.

I’m still trying to find my footing when it comes to this whole mom-wife-work-home-life thing.  Some days are better than others but, I’m learning it’s okay to set boundaries and protect my peace (something I wish I stuck to shortly after having Benjamin).
