It's week 8 of the bloggerella baby update, and it is a doozy! There were ups, there were downs but mostly there were a ton of firsts for both me and for Arya. When I scroll back through to the first few days that she was here, it seems so far and distant. Especially in comparison to the chubby, smiling baby girl who's growing up so quickly before my eyes. Though the bright side to the passing of time is that it's given this mommy some much needed room to feel more confident on so many levels! I feel a more in-depth post coming on my struggles with that later, but for now, during week 8 yours truly:

  • discreetly changed a diaper in the middle of the shoe section at Target (and yes, shoes were BOGO!)
  • nursed Arya at a Jason's Deli while also chowing down on the BEST cuban sandwich
  • navigated a tricky treadmill / milk let down / incontinence situation at the gym (note to self: body is not ready to run at a 4.5 speed & 5 incline...yet)
  • watched Arya engage with a toy for the first time
  • bravely took a long walk without a paci (ok, I forgot it on accident but turns out I didn't need it!)
  • successfully bottle fed multiple times (consistency has really been key here)
  • baked some treats (still no home cooked dinners, but baby steps)

And last but not least:

  • I did NOT have a mental breakdown at the pediatrician while the nurse gave Arya her first round of vaccinations. I did make Rob hold her while the shots went it, but I managed to hold off on crying myself until safely in the car afterwards. Mommy did not like it, daddy did not like it, baby did not like it but we all survived!
