Next week is supposed to be beautiful - I plan on planting my container garden and finishing some more projects, as I have many new ones queuing up in my mind...I have a blanket or three that just have to come to fruition!
Here is my main source of inspiration lately...
Indeed, she is all consuming in a most wonderful way. I have heard of women feeling they have lost themselves as individuals when they have children. If anything, becoming a mother has made me more...well...me. At night, Ella goes to bed around 6:30pm, which is lovely as I have several hours to myself to finish chores, eat dinner, and catch up with Ben. But by the time bedtime rolls around I am excited to snuggle down with my little bean. I miss her! She has made me a better person, I only hope I will be able to return the favor over her lifetime.
P.S. I know I have been reflecting a lot recently on what it is to be a mother to a young baby - yes they are work, but as some tragic stories have hit a little too close to home, I am happy to be waking at 2am with a hungry baby - it seems so little and trivial when compared to all the unknowns down the road.
