Motherhood Is...

I've only been a mommy for 3 months, but I feel like it's been a lifetime. One minute I think, has it only been 3 months? And the next minute I think, oh my gosh my baby is 3 months already, noooo (cue the waterworks)!


I find myself thinking about my baby all the time. I'm constantly worrying about whether or not she's getting enough sleep and at the same time, if she's getting enough stimulation.  I think about what kind of person she'll become and if I'm doing a good enough job to guide her. Mind you, the girl can't even roll over yet (she's almost there!) and I'm here thinking about what college she'll go to. 

If it's not these big picture thoughts consuming my brain, it's little random things like if I have enough diapers to get us through the week. Or when the last time I did laundry was... because it seems I need to do it again but I could swear I just did it yesterday.

Every so often I find myself with a spare moment to think about something that is not baby related... like when did I last wash my hair? Or the fact that I really hope my husband picks up dinner because there's no way I'm cooking tonight. Ahh motherhood!

And time for baby girl's 3 month update!


Right now, she loves...
> Eating her hand.
> Staring at her hands.
> Eating her new favorite ball.
> Doing airplane with daddy.
> Singing with mommy. Mostly mommy sings and she just kicks her feet.
> Car rides.
> Tummy time.
> Bath time.

She hates...
> Being hot.
> Being tired.
> Being in the sitting position.

The mommy worries are constant and never go away, no matter how old your kids get! And the laundry! That also never goes away. It just multiplies! I can tell you're doing a wonderful job. She is so sweet and adorable.

Motherhood...keeps you busy...makes you selfless...makes you worried...but it is completely wonderful! <3

Love the photo of her and tummy time! What a cutie! Definitely time goes by so slow and yet so fast at the same time. We definitely let ourselves worry more than we should but hey, what would a mother be without it ;).

aw so sweet. I would imagine I would feel the same as you if I had a baby! I am a total worry wart so I can envision this being intensified! haha

Ginny MyNewFavoriteOutfit said...

I worried about all these things too. It'll get easier, especially once she's talking :) I'm sure you're doing great!

Frannie Pantz said...

I hate to tell you this but the worrying never really goes away. I worry with all four of my kids. My baby LOVES tummy time too! He is a month and a half old. He's actually been sleeping right in front of me on his tummy on his play mat for about two hours now! LOL

Jen ♥ said...

Look at her! So big with her head up. And those sunglasses!!! She's adorable.

I find myself doing the same thing - worrying about what kind of person B will grow up to be (especially now that things are going to hell with our older daughter). Even though we've only been parents for a few months, it sure is a roller coaster ride!

Thanks for keeping us updated on your precious girl!

sugarlens said...

I love your motherhood posts. These posts will be awesome to reflect back on once the baby is older. Such a cute little girl you have!

Awww she is gorgeous. I am sorry to tell you the worries just get bigger as they grow older. But I think that is just part of being a parent, worrying about your children no matter what age they are.

I don't think the mommy worries will go away. We will worry about them for the rest of their lives. Ahh the joys of motherhood, it's amazing , complex , joyful and tiring but it is all worth it when someone calls you mommy. Enjoy the times that they were little because it is the only times that they gave us their attention. Glad to see you here and baby girl.

She is just precious!! I want to squeeze her!! Just wait until she is 9 years old...talk about worrying about the teenage years that are coming my way soon! Ha!! Being a mom is the best, but lots of worry and stress that comes along with it. So worth it though!! Enjoy this time as I know you are!! :)

Simply Evani said...

She is adorable friend!!! I'm so in love with her big eyes. I'm so excited you're a Mommy now, I can only imagine how wonderful you feel (and how lucky she is!).

Elegance and Mommyhood said...

She is absolutely gorgeous and you are doing a great job. I agree with two birds: the worry or the laundry never ever goes away. Actually the worry I feel is one of the best things about being a mom. It makes us more human and fragile, in a good way, if that makes any sense.

Sehr schöne Outfits, ist es für Sie geeignet.
