Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving was a little different for us this year…we enjoyed the holiday eating meals from Cracker Barrel while our daughter cried. Man, how life can change! We are so looking forward to next year when we can be around family and good food!
I’ve been wanting to do a “life lately” post for a while now to catch everybody up on how life has been with a newborn. I’ll be honest, the first 3 weeks were a struggle for me! I had zero confidence as a mom and with Charlie. Confidence was something I KNEW I would struggle with; however, the self doubt really hit me around 2 weeks. Luckily, we have such a great baby and I have the best husband in the world. This past week has really been a turning point and I feel like a whole new mommy! I’m getting to know Charlie more and feel like I can respond to her needs better and I have a lot more confidence in myself! In fact, we took our first girls trip to Target yesterday. It went great…besides the fact I forgot her diaper bag at home. Hey…I didn’t say I had this mom thing down perfect yet ;)
Here’s what we have been up to:
First Car Ride
Catching a First Smile
First Family Photo (and rocking mini pink skinnies)!
Transitioning to the Nursery
Taking Advantage of Days off with Daddy (and enjoying wine flights!)
Enjoying Our First Thanksgiving (…or maybe not)
Charlotte was 1 month (!) on Saturday so look for that post coming soon!!
