What's up Internet. You want to know what's been up with me? Raising a baby. Babies take a lot of work. It's funny what you think life will be like when your baby comes and the reality of things. Of course I have those moments when she is sleeping or smiling at me that makes my heart melt into a puddle, but there have also been a lot of times where I look at Andrew (who has a panicked looked on his face), look at Everly (who is screaming her head off), and take a big deep breathe because this is CRAZY.
I also used to think that I would have so much extra time in life since I would be a stay at home with Ev. My house would be immaculate, no laundry, hot dinner every night. I'm here to tell you that IT DOESN'T EXIST! But we are slowly getting into the flow and I've carried on my mindset during pregnancy: one day at a time.
Everly is the bomb.com . She needs that website url. She has this crazy head of hair that won't do anything but stick straight up in the air and a little sassy 'tude, even at 8 weeks old. She is smiling and coo'ing and ruling our lives. Andrew is equally obsessed with her. Sometimes he tries to steal my baby and we have to fight over who is going to hang out with her. But the minute she starts to stick that bottom lip out and cry guess who comes running?
She has totally changed our lives for the better, even in the hardest of times. I love A more than I ever have and feel like we are truly understanding what it means to be there for your partner (because dudes, if you think it is hard just living with another person, wait until you have a screaming babe at 2 a.m. to spice up life).
I'm off to try and get a few more things done before this wee one starts squirming.
Keep calm and carry on.
