So it’s been six weeks.... a wonderful yet trying six weeks. Lucas is an absolute joy. He is the new love of my life, and Ryan’s too. We are finally a family! I have so many things to say about the last six weeks, so many emotions, so many thoughts, that I really don’t know where to begin.
Everything smells like spit up. Our bed, our clothes, Lucas, there are stains on our couch and chairs, our dog and cat are starved for attention. I have do laundry twice as often now. Dishes sit in the sink, cat hair on the carpet, I watch as dust collects on the shelves and counters and long to do something about it. But when I get a second... those things don’t get done.
I am a mom! I am a mom, and my life has completely turned upside down. I love it, now that I am adjusting to it. It has been hard, the hardest few weeks of my life so far. Everything is new.
The birth was not what we expected, but I won’t go into that right now. I’ll save that for another blog... As for now, our lives have completely changed.
