Motherhood Realness: 12 Months Postpartum

December 4, 2018

When I started with these postpartum posts I always intended for them to end at a year and that time has come. This will be my last post about my journey through this first year of motherhood. I will, of course, post mommy related things in the future, but not as a monthly update. As I look back at these 12 months I’m not sure how to feel about it. It’s definitely a milestone for both Theodore and I. He’s…

A Letter to Theodore on Your First Birthday!

December 2, 2018

My Dearest Sweet Theodore, I’ve spent a lot of time over the last month thinking about what I would say on your first birthday.

That also means the nights are tough with him waking up from pain and needing to nurse more frequently. In order for me to get any…

Motherhood Realness: A Little Off

September 29, 2018

So for the past 10 months I’ve been tracking my postpartum journey as I navigate my way through this new world called Motherhood. I’ve been honest about my feelings and my experiences… these posts and updates, although very infrequent, have been a source of therapy for me… like a public diary of my life and what I’m going through. I’ve always tried to be authentic and even in the most challenging moments I’d eventually see the positive light at the…
