Good morning, good morning! I’m back! As many of you know, we have had one heck of week or so. Last week, I was not being lazy – I promise. But I was waking up to a whole new world; I woke up to our brand new beautiful baby girl and an extremely supportive husband. But all things aside, I’m back.
This week has been a life-changing week to say the least, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. This week is the first official week of fall, my favorite time of the year!
Caffeine has a whole new meaning after having a child, and let me tell you, I don’t even mess with the lattes and frilly drinks – I like that coffee blacker than black. Grab your drink, and let’s get to it.
Song of the Week:
This song hits me so hard. (It might be the hormones, but it may or may not bring a few tears to my eyes, especially after this last week and a half). I know that my momma has told me since day one not to let anyone’s thoughts of me affect who I am and how I think of myself, but my husband has been more than my rock and he does a great job of saying just what I need.
Do you like champagne, if so what is your favorite brand?:
I only like champagne if it is mixed for a mimosa. But wine, now wine, I do enjoy mucho. Stella Rosa – every kind I have had has been good. I especially like the Stella Rosa Black. I also think it is rather affordable, and worth it! It is nice to be able to just sit and have a glass of wine at night if I want.
Bible Verse of the Week:
For You have made me rejoice, Lord, by what you have done; I will shout for joy because of the works of Your hands.
This verse stuck out to me immediately last night. It truly made me smile to think that God thought that I deserved to bring such a beautiful little girl into this world. Through the trials of the last few years physically, mentally, and emotionally, I never lost faith in Him. He is so good.
Do you treat yourself and your body with respect?:
You know, I thought I had a pretty decent image of my body before I got pregnant. During my pregnancy, I couldn’t wrap my head around exactly what was happening – it was a walk of faith and a feeling like no other.
It wasn’t until I had my daughter that I truly realized that our bodies are temples of God. They are incredible and do so much for us. I now respect my body in a different way and will now treat myself a little differently because of it.
Quote of the Week:
“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.”
How emotional are you?:
Anyone who knows me knows I have always been one to wear my heart on my sleeve. I am very in touch with my emotional side. Am I overly emotional? No, but anyone could read me like a book.
Postpartum emotions are a real deal, especially since I was already emotional to begin with. I have always been a deep thinker, and sometimes, I can really get to myself.
How strict are you going to parent?:
I am not sure how one is supposed know the answer until they are put in that situation. But I’d like to think I will discipline my children as needed.
My husband as already told me that he would send them to me to be disciplined so that he can be the “good guy”. He didn’t want his children to not like him. Ha. We shall see how that goes.
Well that’s all I have for today. Our lives have definitely changed, but we wouldn’t change it for the world. Have a great week!
