Kensie Grace is almost 6 weeks old which blows my mind. I am so thankful to be her mama. There is nothing better. This parenting thing is so much fun. But seriously, wouldn't it great if children came with instructions? Luckily, I've picked up a thing or two since her birth day. Anyways, here are a few tid-bits that I've been feeling lately...
... but seriously, I miss sleep.
... but seriously, if you have a problem with how much I post about Kensington on social media, then I suggest you unfollow me. :)
... but seriously, I'm getting stronger by the day. Hello, heavy carseat.
... but seriously, just because some women breastfeed or pump, doesn't make their babies any smarter or healthier than formula-fed bundles. (For the record, we're strictly doing formula due to a medication that I was taking, which removed all excess fluids from my body, thus making it difficult to create a healthy supply/production.)
... but seriously, holy hotness seeing my hubby care for our daughter. You know - the daughter that is a perfect little mixture of both him and I??? OMG. I still die thinking about it.
... but seriously, I'm not butt-hurt over it anymore, but it becomes very apparent who is important in your life and who is less important. It surprises me that some people who I've been close with in the past haven't asked, "when can I meet Kensington?"
... but seriously, my priorities have changed and I kinda am in love with this new life of mine. What did I do before Kensington?
... but seriously, I legitimately cried during my postpartum appointment since I won't see my doc for another year (or until we get pregnant again). But then again, I have the best doctor ever (read more here). When you're preggo, you see your OBGYN all the time and they help you through the pregnancy. Now that Kensie is here, I want to bring my doc home with me for his continued guidance.
... but seriously, let your mom stay with you the first week home with baby. She will help you a ton.
... but seriously, we go through 500 million diapers and wipes per day. Holy expensiveness.
... but seriously, how great would it be if we got pregnant naturally instead of through IVF again? A girl can pray. Otherwise, I will look forward to the day when our frozen babies are placed back where they belong - inside my belly.
... but seriously, this love is the best kind of love. Thank you Jesus for seeing me fit to be Kensie's mama.
