If you would have asked me a year ago if I would be a mom and have a 6 week old, I probably would have laughed at you. Growing up, being a mom was not on my list of priorities and quite honestly I had no interest in it.
But, things change (apparently quickly) and here we are! My husband and I got married in October 2014 and we decided we would like to try for a baby. We did not expect that it would happen so quickly! I was pregnant by February 2015 and we didn’t even realize until our delayed honeymoon in April.
Once we got back from the honeymoon and confirmed the pregnancy, we started on this long journey of parenthood. Trying to figure out everything as we go has been quite an adventure. We have had a lot of help from our friends (THANK YOU!!), but it seems like everyone sort-of forgets those first few months. Considering we MIGHT have a second at some point very far down the line (check with me in 3 years!) I wanted to document our journey. It will definitely help us again in the future, but I hope some of our experience will help other first timers too!
