My 2 Month Old!

Luke’s full of smiles, especially when he first wakes up in the morning! When he’s not smiling, he’s usually napping in his wrap….he can confirm that it’s the best life ツ

Some of my favorite things from this month:

+ SLEEP lol. Luke has started to sleep through the night and it's glorious. I made a blog post about those sleepless nights that are actually quite special (and very temporary). But my goodness, I am extra thankful to get some more sleep back too ツ

+ His smiles. People don't tell you that when your baby starts to smile at you, you basically melt in a puddle every time and it's the best thing in the world. Luke wakes up with the biggest squinty-eyed, full-cheeks, open-mouth smile in the mornings that I've ever seen and it makes getting out of bed a million times easier. Ugh, it's the best.

+ He's my little work buddy. I have the best work....I get to work from home and also watch Luke and it's pretty amazing. I don't have to miss out on the most special years that are about to fly by...instead I get to raise him while also providing for my family. It's truly a gift how much they value moms and I can't wait to see more workplaces being held to those kinds of standards. The days are long sometimes, but I wouldn't trade it for anything else. And I just love getting to soak up smiles and cuddles in between naps and work calls.

Things I've learned this month:

+ Kids are just the best thing in the world. I've been around kids my whole life and I've always loved them big-time. But raising kids is even better.

+ Having a job that values family and work-life balance is everything. It's a big part of why I left teaching and I hope to never stop fighting for those that want/need to have jobs without sacrificing parts of motherhood that they don't want to give up.

+ Time is still a thief. I want to savor the days as I watch Luke already growing and changing so much. It makes me sad watching it all happen within the blink of an eye, but what a gift each day is.
