[tumblr]8. necklaces: no more long necklaces around the babe. similar to number 2, who even knew how much i'd like to accessorize until i can't really do it? who wants your infant headbutting your impostor rhinestones? not this momma. now, if i'm able, i'll snag one and throw it on before i run out by myself just to feel a little sparkle - those days are pretty few and far between.
[tumblr]9. adult conversations: i miss adult conversations and i believe i drive ben crazy on a daily basis because of this. spending all day with our princess is such a gift but she doesn't really have very deep talks with me [believe it or not]. i do get time with girl friends and with ben every now and then but i feel like even my conversations revolve around babies because that's what consumes my days. i want to get better about this. i want to be learning and growing as well as spending time with emmie c. i want to invest in other people & hear about them instead of babble only about babes.
i hope that didn't sound like a complaint factory! i just want to be able to look back at what was awesome and also what was challenging in this season. no doubt i'll look back on this in a few months and realize how silly most of these little bumps are - i'm excited for that. what about you? any life surprises sneak up on you?
