Happy 1 Month, Mollie!

How has it already been 1 entire month with Mollie and then on the other hand, has it really only been 1 month that we've known Mollie?! That speaks to the ideas that God does give you amnesia for some moments you don't need to remember AND that time does fly when you're having fun!!

We are so in love with this little girl it's hard to explain. It has been a true learning experience every single day and sometimes, every moment of every day - and I would not trade it for the world! Matt and I are so very blessed to have had an easy pregnancy, easy delivery and the best of all a beautiful, healthy little girl. It's been awesome watching Matt love her more each day. When they are so little, don't play, breastfeed, etc it's kind of hard for the guy to do a whole lot, but he is great with her and she just lights up with him! Oh Matt, you have your work cut out for you for life & certain you are already smitten!!

The thought crossed my mind a couple weeks ago, that sadly enough, maybe Mollie would be our only child. I didn't know if I was cut out for this, felt like I wasn't doing a good job as a mom and not certain I would do all of this again. I guess that was what I would call a 'low moment' as even today, I looked down at her and for sure want more!! Matt- don't worry, not TOO soon:) Such a huge difference just a few days in a week make. Future moms, remember sooooo does get better/easier. When you have hard times, just say that to yourself...& then lean on your girlfriends for support and encouragement!!

I am slowing losing some of this 'Type A' personality and am actually liking it. It feels pretty good not to always have things planned and lined out! I know I will get more back to my usual ways when I go back to work, she gets older, we are on a schedule, etc but for now, I am trying to enjoy NOT knowing what is to come. Scary, but exciting at the same time. But hey Mollie, I am ready to get on a great sleeping schedule, so anytime you are ready I am too! But until then...we'll take it one day at a time & enjoy every moment. Happy 1 month birthday sweet girl!!!
