Answering the tough questions

The lovely Erin at Living in Yellow answered some tough questions a few months ago and I did answer them but I forgot to click publish. That's what happens when you're 6 weeks post baby. So here you go.

1. If you could do one thing differently in your life, what would it be?
I'm going to cheat because I have 3.

1) Make up. Oh it was bad. 

Blue Eye shadow = Bad Marci

b) I would have tried harder in high school to get a career. 

c) I would have been smarter with relationships. 

2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully happy and healthy. Ill be happily married, have an amazing career and/or a business and/or a non-profit organization, and have 2-3 kids. We will live in a house with a big yard and own lots of animals...our 2 cats, dogs, a parrot, and a duck to name a few. We should probably just buy a farm. And lastly, I'll be a sports mom who cheers my kids on at every game.

3. Do you honestly want kids?
I'm going to change the question to "Do you honestly want more kids?" The answer? I know right now I'm happy with Mylo but deep down I still want another one. 

4. What has been the best moment of your life so far?
Top two moments were my wedding day and the birth of my son. 

5. What is your life theme song?
I'm going to say my wedding song because the lyrics are perfect.
Rascal Flatts - God bless the broken road

6. What is one thing you have yet to accomplish that you want to do before you die?
The obvious answer is everything mommy related; seeing my son walk, talk, go to school, graduate, get married. The not so obvious answer would be to find my passion and enjoy it as much as I can.

7. If you could choose one thing to be known for, what would it be?
Helping others

8. If you could do anything you wanted right in this very moment (no consequences, no fear, etc), what would it be?
I would go sky diving. It's the only thing that faces all my fears into 1 activity; planes, heights, falling, no control, and death.

9. What has been the most challenging moment in your life?
The first three weeks after my son was born! The screaming, the crying, the lack of sleep and just not knowing what to do. I cried so many times from being physically and mentally exhausted. It was by far the most challenging but most rewarding.

10. Summarize yourself in one word.

There you have it. What would you answer to these questions?

Blog makeover.. sort of

When you're sitting on the couch all huge and pregnant or have a screaming newborn wanting to eat your boob every 20 minutes, you tend to have some time to think. It probably won't be clearly but you have time. For instance, I thought a lot about sleep. And other stuff of course.

~ I thought about family and how we need to visit them more often. It's important that Mylo has a close relationship with his 3 grandparents, aunt and uncle who live 8 hours away.

Moments with his Grampy are important.

~ I thought about career options. Daycare is SO expensive ($1050/month/baby - ridiculous!). I need to make some decisions once my maternity leave is done come January. I could always win the lotto too.

~ I thought a lot about this blog and its direction. I'm just going to write about the things I know and love. The thing I love most right now is my son so he will be a big part of it.

So there you have it. I just realized it's 3pm and all I've eaten today is oatmeal. Time to make some food.

Introducing the newest addition to our family...

How things change in the matter of minutes. I've always wanted a family and that day finally arrived on March 12th when our baby boy was born. It's still hard to believe that I'm a mommy now.

I was a hot mess

Mylo was born weighing 9lbs 1oz. That's right, 9 pounds. Not exactly what we were expecting. I never thought I could would deliver a baby that big.

Bigger than expected
Looking back on my 39 week picture, it's not surprising. I was huge!

Mylo is now 6 weeks old and continues to amaze me every single day. I'm lucky to be on a "schedule" now with feedings and sleeping. It could be changing soon because I think he's starting another growth spurt. Either way, I'm just happy to be getting a few hours of sleep here and there.

The first 4 weeks were by far the toughest and most brutal 4 weeks of my life. It was hell. I know that's sounds really bad but I'm being honest. There was a whole lot to learn since we have little/no prior experience with babies. It's a scary feeling being responsible for this tiny person and not knowing what to do but we're learning and we have one happy boy!

We are so happy he's finally here.
I'm so in love.

I love watching him sleep. 
I love giving him kisses.
I love snuggling with him.

He is so perfect in my eyes. I have such an unconditional love for this tiny little being and my heart continues to grow every day. I'm looking forward to the journey that falls before us. Luckily I have this blog to track all the milestones so we can look back on it in the future.

- xoxo M
