Katie In Mommy Land

Hello world! I know I have been a little MIA the last 10 weeks... I like to call it the "Mommy Rabbit Hole". But I don't feel like Alice, I feel like a strange version of my old self. Over the last 10 weeks I have had the greatest intentions of blogging, cleaning the house or even taking a shower, but mommyhood is not that glamours... So now I have to catch you all up on 10 weeks in the life as the Human Pacifier.

Daddy and his girl!

And Aunt Emme

Birth was my favorite part of pregnancy... I am serious!I could not have asked for a more loving and supportive team. Jon and Emily kept me calm and focused. I love them both very much and I am so happy they were both there to help me breathe, cry and laugh through labor and delivery.

So now to the Human Pacifier part.... the pain of birth is nothing in comparison to the pain of breastfeeding... no one prepared me for this!!!! It's like an electric shocking titty twister...I completely hate it! I use to think I wanted big boobs... ah no thanks, they hurt when I run, they are always in the way and they leak. Don't judge.... I feel like a BIG fat milk cow! But I am sticking to it... for now.

Colic is a BITCH! Seriously! I don't know how many tears I cried and how many days I wished I was at work rather than stuck in the mommy rabbit hole. But with lots or support from my husband and encouragement from my mom and sisters and a complete change in my diet Bug's tummy is finally settled! She is the happiest, cutest baby EVER! (I am not bias... ok maybe a little) She has been smiling since birth! Here are a few pictures to prove it!

Ok...Ok... enough with her CUTENESS!!!

As many of you know I am CDO (OCD but I like my letters in order). No one told me that my house would never be princess clean again... nowadays cleaning consist of a free hour here and there... now I know why all the "nesting" was so critical. But I am starting to get it down, instead of cleaning and do laundry all day on Saturday, I tackle one chore a day. And if I get a batch of laundry done, folded and put away I feel good. Oh, how the perfectionist has fallen.

Mommyhood is the most trying, beautiful and rewarding thing I have ever experienced, when Bug smiles at me all seems right... (yes she did get her Daddy's smile!)
