Our little Noli is 8 weeks (plus 1ish). It’s funny how much I see my love for her compared to Everlie. Don’t get me wrong, I have loved E since I felt her growing within me. I was so clouded in her infancy, that I couldn’t see the forest through the trees. I was a terrified, lost new mom and I couldn’t see past that and see what beauty was in front of me.
I see Noli’s smile and her chubby cheeks and I can’t get enough. I don’t even care that all of my furniture, clothes and floor is almost always covered in breast milk spit up. She is calm, laid back and easy going - she clearly has her dad’s personality. :) I finally feel like a mom. After almost two years, it hit me the other day. Their cries don’t stress me out, I don’t wish I was somewhere else and I actually feel like I know what I’m doing (sometimes). For the first time since Everlie was born, I finally feel like a confident mom and that is a pretty great triumph.
We’re still navigating our new world. There are still a lot of days I can’t handle two kids under two, but each day gets better and we’re learning to find our new normal with these two amazing little girls. Even with lack of sleep, crying fits from all of us (minus @jdubc) and some really really long days, I could not be happier or more in love with my little fam. ❤️👨👩👧👧
