Hello there!

Hello blogging world!! I've got to say... life's been pretty good to me (graduated from high school and college, have amazing family and friends, met and married the love of my life, got a roof over my head, am lucky enough to buy a few wants in life in addition to the needs, etc.). Of course, there's been some down moments, but I know I'm fortunate to have what I have and I definitely don't wish to take advantage of that. I recently became a new mom (another thing to add to the list of fortunates), so here goes the journey of mommyhood!! 

Noah was born on March 24, 2012, which happened to be his due date (right on, dude!)! The labor itself wasn't TOO bad I guess. Progressed extremely quickly. So I think if the nurses had checked me before giving me the epidural, don't think I would've been able to get it. Oh well! That drug is a miracle... seriously. I give ANYONE credit who can go through childbirth naturally. They must have an extremely high threshold for pain. Not I said the fly! The next two days in the hospital were definitely a blur, but coming home with baby in tow was definitely a new experience! I know people say that you lose a lot of sleep once you have a baby, but MAN ALMIGHTY. And my body is weird, so if I nap during the day, then I struggle to fall asleep at night.

There's a post on Pregnant Chicken, and it's SO freaking hilarious and SO FREAKING TRUE!! Anyone who's pregnant, thinking of getting pregnant, or went through childbirth should seriously read it. Thoughts??

Also had to share another post from another mommy blog. Thinking of getting pregnant?? Wish I read this article before I got pregnant. That list at the end of the article is so true that all I can do now is laugh in agreement.

We'll see how this journey of being a mom goes. It can only get better, right??
