Your three words

A Look Back




What a difference (almost 5 months) makes. I am still without my camera so after taking some silly pics of Mags today, I took a moment to look back at old pics and found the first pictures, taken when Magster was about 2 weeks old.

It's been 5 months, but I remember that day like it was yesterday. That was the my first day all by myself with Maggie. My mom had been with me for the first week and it made the transition so much smoother. But I have to be completely honest that first day by myself, I was pretty anxious. My mom had been there for any question I had and to help me with everything. Now I was on my own. I was responsible for this little being and she depended on me for everything. Somehow I made it through, with a couple of tears and a lot of smiles.

Flash forward to today and so far what an amazing experience it has been. I have been so blessed that I am able to stay home with little Mags and I really am thankful for that every day. It hasn't always been easy, but nothing worthwhile is. I get the opportunity to watch this little girl grow and blossom.

Speaking of growing, we tried oatmeal for the first time today and I think we have an oatmeal lover. She ate almost twice as much of the oatmeal than she has ever eaten of the rice cereal. It might have been a fluke, so we will see.

This weekend we are keeping it pretty low key. Tomorrow we are doing some shopping and returns. Nothing too exciting, but I like to use the winter to recharge.

What are your weekend plans? Hope that this finds you well!
