I cannot even believe it’s been a year ago today that I found out I was going to be a mommy. And tomorrow my little Eden Grace will already be 4 months old! Time is a crazy thing. It goes by way too fast. I’ve already been pregnant, had a baby, and now have a 4 month old! 12 months ago I couldn’t even begin to imagine what the next year would look like.
I can tell you it has been so perfect. As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, being a mom has been the one thing I have always wanted in life. Being pregnant was a whirlwind and even during extreme nausea I cherished every moment. And now even when Eden is screaming her head off I am so thankful for her. People ask me all the time how I like being a mom and I can honestly and genuinely say it’s perfect. I don’t have much to compare her to, but I think she is a pretty good baby. She gets in a mood in the evenings but during the day we just hang out around the house. During the day we straighten the house, fold laundry, wash eggs, watch soap operas and talk shows, and we take naps on the couch together sometimes. It is simple but perfect.
I am so ridiculously spoiled. I often ask God what I ever did to deserve such a a perfect life. I often think about people overseas who are in such turmoil in poverty and war-torn areas. Why am I here in this nice warm house in Oklahoma with a wonderful, loving husband and a beautiful baby girl??? My husband goes to work everyday while I stay home. I just don’t understand. In the midst of my questions about fate, I must be thankful for my life right now. For my ridiculously simple life. And I am so very thankful. I am so thankful for my husband and for my Eden girl.
Life is such a weird thing. And it’s so fast. I’m learning that more and more everyday having a baby around. I have to cherish every single moment because tomorrow today will be gone. I encourage you to do the same.
