surviving & loving it! :)

I found this post that I never finished & posted from a couple of weeks ago. I didn't want to delete it because I wanted to have it to remember how I felt some days! Also, just so everyone knows that being a parent isn't always fun & games. I started writing this the day after we didn't have a good day...

"So the other day when Mike and I were talking, we were talking about parenting & how its challenging & hard. {Can I get an amen?} I just reminded myself that my goal right now is to take care of this sweet baby girl and love her to pieces. Bottom line= survival mode. Sometimes we have great days, sometimes, not so much. Yesterday was one of those days... Maggie Claire kept waking up from her naps early & she was fussy. I was trying to take down the Christmas tree & "undecorate" the house. I kept getting frustrated because every day we have something going on, I feel like half of Maggie Claire's naps are taken in her carseat and I just want to give up."

I love that this my life right now. Yes, a lot of people just think that I sit around and take pics of Maggie in her cute outfits all day... reality check... yea right, I wish! But I do snag every opportunity I can to take pictures of her!

Speaking of... last night was her first time in an exersaucer! I snapped a few pictures! She seemed to like it, I just couldn't believe how big she looked! She liked looking at all the toys, it was too cute.
I really am enjoying my sweet baby girl. This stage is really fun & she is so happy! She really is such a good baby and I can't complain at all because we are soooooooo blessed! At least she is taking naps & sleeping through the night! I couldn't imagine her not being able to sleep and cry all the time... I would lose my mind! :) I also love that she will smile at just about anyone! :)

Also, do you guys like my new header? I replaced the preggo picture and added a few of Maggie Claire. I love it! :)

cute new header pics! i love mc's sunglasses, too.

it was fun to read "parenting is not just fun and games"... especially since it's almost 1am and i'm up pumping a bottle for the morning. : ) it's not just fun, but i do think the fun outweighs the work on most occasions!
