Birth and Beyond…

11 Apr

Yes! I have returned after a long hiatus, and now have a beautiful baby girl in tow.

One month and one day ago, my little Sofia Aya arrived into the world.
She is adorable, and I’m pretty sure she knows it.

The past few weeks have been a huge transition for me; I have a baby to take care of now. She is this tiny little bundle of joy and every other emotion you can think of.

I’ve realized that you really can’t know how much you’ll enjoy motherhood until it happens to you. I love every minute of it; even through groggy┬á2 am diaper changes, feedings, and seemingly endless crying. Sofia is perfect.

I would be lying though if I said I wasn’t tired, but I feel like my body is quickly adjusting to running on 3 to 4 hour blocks of sleep. Not to mention, all that advice I shrugged off before is really coming in handy. I nap when I can, and I relish in the quiet times.

Parenting is 24/7, it’s definitely not easy, and it’s not always fun, but I’m not afraid to tackle any obstacles that come with raising a baby. She is worth every (literal) blood, sweat, and tear.

In the beginning it was hard to do anything else but focus on the baby, but now I am slowly finding time for myself as well.

With that being said, I really want to get back to my creative ventures. Now that I’m taking some time off from school I can get back to my projects that have been long put off. I want to write more, get back to music, and do more of that “artsy” stuff. I’m really looking forward to getting a lot of things accomplished this spring and summer. I’m feeling motivated, now more than ever to be successful. Not only for myself but so Sofia can have a good life as well.

Now with baby Sofia at my side I can be the on-the-go glamour momma I always saw myself becoming.

…and yes I can still be stylish, even changing a dirty diaper.
