Where have the last couple months gone?!? I can’t believe my little baby boy will be 3 months old next week. I’ve always wanted a mama’s boy, and I FINALLY got my mama’s boy. Everyone told me that my relationship with Beckham would be different, and I can see why now! He has totally stolen my heart! He watches my every move, wants me to hold him every minute of the day, holds my hand, and smiles at me a hundred times a day. I just know his first word will be “MaMa”. I’m truly soaking in these precious baby moments. I remember with Brooke, I just looked forward to the next stage….everything was so new for us and I read every baby book there was to make sure she was reaching each milestone. With the twins, we were much more relaxed and just went with the flow. They were a little behind on their milestones, but I enjoyed them being little babies since I thought they were my last. And then there is sweet Beckham. I just keep wishing the days wouldn’t fly by so quickly. I know each stage is so fun, but I just want this little baby stage to crawl by. Here are a few things I’ve learned in the last few weeks…
Don’t be lazy. I decided to nurse with my bed pillow instead of getting up and grabbing my nursing pillow. Beckham decided that was the perfect time to have the BIGGEST blowout ever….all over my pillow, and on our duvet cover. I couldn’t help but laugh…it’s was too funny and gross all at the same time.
Don’t go to Wal-Mart at 5 a.m. – They will have 4 aisles closed (?!?), one of them being the baking aisle when you have a cupcake order due that day. Awesome. You will drive to the other grocery store, slip on the ice then drop all your groceries on the ground. Then look around to make sure no one saw, like anyone else is out at 5 a.m.?!?
Don’t try jeans on. ever. – Just wear leggings and long shirts. Every day….until it’s summer and then you have no choice but to try shorts on. What did we do before leggings were in?!?
Enjoy every minute. – Let’s be honest, being a mom is hard work. It’s frustrating at times, exhausting…but it’s so rewarding. I’ve been trying to spend less time on the computer, less time cleaning, and more time playing with all the kids during the day. Nap time (if I’m lucky) is when I get to catch up with emails, facebook, reading and eating. I’m just so amazed at how quickly the days go by with my sweet kids. I know I’ll blink, and then be wishing I had more sleepless nights, more tiny clothes to wash, more crumbs to clean off the floor, more questions to answer a thousand times a day….so for now, I’m trying to enjoy it more, and start stressing less.
