Baby Update: Month 3
I'm having a hard time even pulling this baby update post together -- 1) Because Arya is insisting on nursing as I type and 2) Because I'm in disbelief that she's actually 3 MONTHS OLD! Somewhere between month 2 and month 3, ish got real again. Momming is hard! I thought the breastfeeding struggle was behind me, but turns out there are curveballs like supply issues and clogged ducts and the dreaded mastitis and nursing strikes. These are some of the tough things that happened multiple times to us the past month, and I'm reallyyy glad to be on the other side of them (for now!). They tested my mental toughness, my emotions and my physical strength but sprinkled in between were some truly wonderful moments too! Arya has passed some major milestones and, as I like to say, she's turning into a person. It makes me SO excited to watch her grow and learn, but it also makes me weepy because WHERE is my newborn baby going, dammit!? Check out what we've been up to and some of my fave pics below!
(This girl loves tummy time. Natural overachiever, she has a meltdown if she can't roll over right away!)
(We really discovered music this month! She turns toward the direction of the sound on mommy's Spotify.)
(Relax... no baby eardrums were harmed in the taking of this adorable photo! lol)
(Anddddd....wait for it...)
(She's on the move! Sort of...Patting myself on the back, photog of the year!)
