Catching Up

So, it's been a while since I've last updated. I am steadily learning my new daily routine. Thankfully, the days seem to go by quickly. Sadly, the evenings do too. That's the part of the day that I'd love to pause for a while. Most afternoons, Karaline takes a pretty long nap. It's nice because I'm able to get everything ready for the next day, but when we get home, I just want to cuddle with her.

She's growing so fast. We went to the doctor today and she weighs 15 lbs., 11 oz. Last night we bought her some new outfits (all 6 months) and one pair of the 6 month pants are too little!!!!

Everyday she is doing something new and different. I cannot begin to express the amount of joy she brings to our lives. Her sweet coos and smiles melt my heart. Before having her, I was that person who would make comments about parents. I never understood why parents did or didn't do specific things. I am beginning to completely understand and am kicking myself for being judgmental. In fact, one of my friends on Facebook has the perfect status and suggestion: "Before you have kids, you should make a list of things you'll "never do" as a parent. It'll be good for a laugh later on."

I'll try and be better about posting, but with working and trying to do the "to dos" at home, I haven't had much time that I feel like blogging!

  1. Oh I was full of those "I'll never do that!" judgments. I was an expert in parenting until I became a parent myself! You and all other work out of the home mommas get lots of respect from me because I don't get the things done I need to without a job to go to everyday- I, and my house and kids, would be a complete mess if I tried to handle all that! I hope and pray your evenings with her will be long and sweet for you all!
