New mama life is 24/7. Baby Shaye just turned 5 months and is busy babbling, grabbing, teething, rolling and scooching. We are very busy walking miles together napping in the carrier, and adventuring into nature as much as we can. So much joy on so little sleep!
Sending much compassion and encouragement to all the mamas out there... this is crazy and you're doing great! Being a mama is definitely the hardest job of all. Don't forget to slow down and ENJOY the little moments... it's all there really is. I have to remember this so many times a day... slow.... down, this is it.
