I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet…
Now that that song is most likely stuck in your head, I thought I would pop in and say hello. It’s been over a year since I last posted so I’m not sure if anyone will actually see this, but I thought I would say hi nonetheless.
So, yeah… it’s been awhile, though it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long to me. It’s like I blinked and I suddenly have a toddler. It’s nuts. Being a mom is nuts. The fact that I’M a mom is nuts. But it’s also awesome.
Becoming a mother did not come naturally to me, and I still feel a little guilty about that fact, but Ryder is just the best thing Kevin and I have ever done. He’s crazy and wild and – not going to lie – can be so annoying sometimes… but he’s also the sweetest most cuddly funny little dude. He loves me and Kevin more than anyone, and even when he is driving me insane (which is more often than I would like), I love being his mama.
He brings so much joy to my life, and I feel so incredibly lucky that he’s mine.
15 months in, and life is just really good again. The beginning was hard. So much harder than I could have ever imagined. There was nothing that could have prepared me for how hard it would be. I can confidently say that the newborn stage is just not for me. But while as shitty as it was, I’m grateful for it in a strange way because having that sharp contrast makes me appreciate how much better life is now with him in it.
I don’t know what’s in store for this blog. I’m not going to say this is goodbye, because I might pop in from time to time, but I don’t foresee myself updating it with any sort of regularity ever again.
However, if you have any interest in keeping up with me and seeing what I’m up to, I am a super obnoxious snapchatter. I try my best to not be the annoying mom that just posts loads and loads of baby pics on facebook and instagram, but I don’t apply that rule to snapchat. I post a ton of of baby photos and videos that capture how great having a kid is.
You know, videos like this:

Anyway, if you’re reading this, I hope you’re doing well, whoever you are.
Until next time!
