Fresh out of the shower. No makeup. No nap. Postpartum acne and tired eyes. No filter. (Yeah, right!) I feel fantastic, tired and every moment is a little surreal. Even 6 months later I'm feeling like I "just" had a baby. 6 months! Our baby is half a year old and he's growing so fast. He's just the sweetest, loveliest little chub. We all adore him.
So much has changed and yet I can rarely remember my former life. I'm feeling confident in this new version of myself. Mother of 2. Postpartum acne. Flowy blouses to cover my pouchy tummy. Extra concealer. So much joy and an abundance of mood swings. I'm trying to embrace every new phase, take care of myself and ease back into real life (a.k.a. wedding season). A huge part of me just wants to cuddle and nurse a newborn all day and night. I have so much to do but I remember to pause and hug my babies tight, to look them in the eye and listen to every word, every coo. My 6 month old will be 6 in the blink of an eye and I dont want to miss a thing.
