It doesn't get more perfect than this! My little bestie!Loving: watching Mia grow! It's crazy how one day things will just sorta click. One day Mia figured out how to pull herself into the standing position (major shocker to mommy and daddy). One day she figured out how to put herself into the sitting position (which makes nap time real fun). One day... well, you get the picture? My momma heart bursts with pride each time Mia figures out a milestone. Of course I think I have the smartest, strongest baby in the world! But at the same time, my momma heart breaks a little with each new milestone. Motherhood is such a trip. So much happiness mixed with a little sadness at all times!
Reading: I haven't been reading. But I've been unpacking books, does that count? :) I'm actually planning on reading a book (hopefully two) this week! I'll let you know how that goes...
Learning: that I just want to take taxi's for the rest of my life! Okaaaay, I don't mean that! But let me explain. We are selling our truck and this is the first time we've sold a vehicle. Let me tell you, people are idiots. Idiots, idiots, idiots. Including me! Eric and I are very loyal people, so, if someone says they want to buy our truck? We stop taking calls and texts of other interested buyers. Then said person turns out to be a J E R K and we choose not to sell him the truck, we've missed out on all the other interested buyers. (Lesson learned. We won't be cutting everything out until it's a done deal!) But then I get stupid texts from cheap people who offer ridiculously low dollar amounts that feel like a slap in the face. I guess it doesn't hurt to try, but they definitely get a big fat NO from us. Then they counter offering $100 more? They should have stopped at the first ridiculous offer. Luckily, we don't need to sell the truck so we can sit and wait until the right buyer comes along. But seriously, what. a. pain.
Trying to: hold true to my attitude change with Eric's job. Some days are more difficult than others, but for the most part? It gets a little easier each day to just let go. And my oh my, what a difference it's made in our marriage! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to figure things out, but the relief we all feel from this is just amazing! It feels good to be back to "us" again!
Wishing: time would slow down! I never realized why "moms" would say this until I had my own baby. The first 2 weeks of Mia's life felt like the longest and shortest weeks ever. Longest because I was so sleep deprived, healing from the most trauma my body has ever been through, and figuring out this brand new, tiny human being who was also trying to figure out life in her brand new body. And shortest because apparentely once you have a baby, time flies more quickly than ever before! Mia will be 8 months next week. E I G H T MONTHS! How is that possible?!
Excited for: the time I get to spend with Eric this week! We have a couple of FUN tiny getaways this week and they couldn't come soon enough. Like I said before... between work, moving and life we just haven't been able to spend much time together. I know that Mia is especially going to love her time with the both of us! She gets super hyper when she realizes she gets to play with us both! It's so cute :) I love my little family!
