I haven’t posted in awhile. Quite awhile actually. But since Emmett has joined our family, all I want to do is write about him and my experiences.
I know, just what the world needs, right? ANOTHER Mommy blog. One more person talking about an endless stream of breastmilk and poop. Awesome.
If you have already stopped reading I don’t blame you. If you’re still here, know this: I’m not restarting my blog with the hope that I am going to become a famous professional blogger. Although that would be so awesome and then I could quit my job and stay home with Emmett and make potato print artwork with him all day long.
But that’s not why I’m writing this. I’m doing it because I need to quiet the noise in my head, the worry and anxiety and excitement and happiness and every other emotion you can think of that rattles around in there all day. Writing helps shush the constant hum going on in there. So if you choose to continue reading, consider yourself my therapist.
Here are a few things you should know if you still want to read my blog, which I hope you do:
Four and a half months ago my baby boy was airlifted out of my belly after 22 hours of labor that “failed to progress” which means his heart rate kept dropping to scary lows and I couldn’t push his big fat head out of my lady bits.
Three and a half years ago I married the best guy I know. He makes me laugh my head off and no matter how much crazy I unleash he doesn’t run away.
I use a lot of commas and exclamation points when I write. Or I don’t use any punctuation at all. I always proofread for typos, but let’s face it, I hardly have time to write at all let alone make sure what I’m writing is grammatically correct. I hope you’ll forgive me and read on anyway. If not, I understand.
As of this moment in time, I am still waking up 3-5 times a night, which means I’m not sleeping very much at all. So, most of the time I am at least one of the following: crabby, whiney, complaining and/or feeling quite sorry for myself. Once I start sleeping more you’ll all see how lovely I can be. Or we’ll all discover together that I’m actually a total bitchface. Stay tuned to find out!
