Mom Life

So I have only been a mommy for 6 months and have loved and cherished every minute of it. I know moms are suppose to say that, but I truly have. Hudson is just a dream baby. 

Don't get me wrong it's challenging, but the challenging kind that constantly has me striving to be better...and creative! Who knew keeping a 6 month old entertained would be so much work! He has more toys than he knows what to do with (guess we need to make a donation box) yet he still LOVES and needs his one on one time with me. 

Here are my top 5 of my Mom Life Moments: 

1. I absolute love nursing Hudson. The way he grabs my hand or rubs my arm melts my heart in every time. I feel so blessed and fortunate that I am able to do it. 

2. Each stage comes with its challenges and joys. Sometimes we think "well when they can do this it will be so much easier" and we wish away the current stage they are in instead of enjoying it. I am learning to STOP, PAUSE, and ENJOY each stage as it comes...and goes. 

3. Not trying to conquer the world in a day. I have realized I will eventually get to it all, just doesn't have to be all at one time. 

4. Creating a memory each day that I can look back and one day tell Hudson, when you were 6 months old we would always do _______________. This is why I love taking daily pictures with him. I want to remember every moment with him and look back and remember that day and what we did. 

5. Making time for myself. Ok, not gonna lie but I tend to feel guilty about this one. When Hudson naps should I be cleaning or folding the laundry? But I'm LEARNING it's okay for me to leave him with my mom or sister run to Starbucks and get my nails done. Or....catch up on The Real Housewives, yes I'm guilty. 

Mom life is truly the best life and I love walking and experiencing this journey....where I have so much more to learn and experience.
