Lord! I just checked my blog and my last one was when Christian was FOUR MONTHS!!!!! DAYUMMMM!!!! He is nearly 9 months old now and I have written nothing. But that doesn’t mean that nothing has been happening. I like to think that I have been too busy being a mom, student, and business owner to blog much. But that’s no excuse. *Sigh* I had wanted so much for this to be a great, detailed chronicle of my life as a first-time mom. But, you know…I guess this fits. I have my plate overfilling with things. Not only am I chasing around a baby (who is crawling and “walking” all over the place), but I am doing it alone (unfortunately Christian’s father has left us and has been away for over a month), working hard to try to pay the bills, and still working on my Master’s. Life is tough. But my baby boy makes it all worth it. 😀
It’s amazing to think of how much he is changed over the past few months. He is eating solids like a champ. He is crawling like crazy and learning how to walk. He is starting to talk (already he has said “Hi”, “All done”, and “I did it”). He laughs all the time and loves to play and explore. He has a great personality and is just an awesome little dude. I am LOVING being a mom.
Ok…so I’m not the perfect mom. I don’t make all of his baby food myself. I don’t breastfeed him all day. My house is not picture perfect. But I do what needs to be done. I am a single mom. I am a stay at home mom. I am a business owner. I am a student. I sing to him, play with him, read to him, feed him, teach him, cuddle him, dress him, bathe him, and love him better than anyone. I make his baby food as often as I can. I breastfeed him 3 times a day. I hold him when he cries, hold his hands while he walks, get on the ground with him to play, zoom him through the air like a plane, make noises and faces just to make him laugh. I am his teacher, his chef, his masseuse, his playmate, his best friend, his chauffeur, his personal musician and comedian. I am Super Mom. How about you?
