incipit vita nova

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

I am not the same as I was, but that is of course to be expected. I am a thousand miles behind and light years ahead. I am still me, just really kind of different. All that yammering about how having a baby changes everything?

Yep. Alas, it’s pretty much true.

And yet in not nearly all the ways I thought it would be. I am 6 months into this journey, and I am still wrapping my head around the wonder and mystery of the fact that I have a kid. And an awesome one at that. I am a Mom. My babe is 6 months old already!

I have joined the ranks of the tired. But I am immensely grateful. And awestruck. And despite my exhaustion, I feel totally and utterly alive.
