My Life With This Chick

IMG_2690

For those of you who haven’t met her… this is my daughter, and I think she’s pretty cool.

The day this baby was born, my life changed forever.

I had an idea that a baby would change my life… but had no clue how much.

Gone are the days of my own little regimented routines.

Gone are the days of taking the random mid-day nap…

Gone are the days of sleeping in past 7 am. Actually, now… sleeping till 7 am IS sleeping in.

I’m in constant motion with this baby attached to my hip.

I’ve learned to roll with the punches and absorb what each day brings me.

I savor every moment with her… from her rubber band wrists to her cute thunder thighs.

This only happens once in her life… and I’m soaking it all in.

This baby makes me laugh, she makes me cry, she make me happy.

She makes me a better person.

Life with this chick is the best!

    What a beautiful little girl!

    For me, sleeping in until 6:30 is a luxury! Having kids changes your life so much but I had no idea how much until Maya came along. 🙂

    your daughter is gorgeous and clearly has her parents wrapped around her little finger 🙂 i think babies do that to us mama’s, no doubt! 🙂

    the banana pudding. with nilla wafters. Childhood memory for me!

    And this one: Have you ever cooked or baked something out of your comfort zone?
    YES I made vegan GF pancakes and created the recipe after being scared out of my mind to create a GF vegan version for a mere 10 yrs 🙂 and did it last week!
