Our first month

Maddie Day One

Maddie Day 36

Actually, it has been five weeks, but I never got around to posting last week.

I'm tired to the n'th degree but, I love being a mom.  Maddie is so beautiful and sweet.  I can hardly believe that Spencer and I had a hand in creating her.  Motherhood is both harder and easier than I thought it would be.  We have a wonderful support system and so that makes taking breaks easier that it would be easier, but then again there are no real breaks to being a parent.

I don't really have any wise insight into this parenthood role. Right now I am just managing from day to day, enjoying my beautiful princess while I change her, feed her and rock her to sleep.  She's growing so big already.  She's out of preemie clothes and  into newborn sizes. I know that to everyone else she is still tiny, but to me she is growing up too fast already.  I look forward to the years ahead, but I am a little sad that each day is a day we won't have again.
