I’m beginning to understand that motherhood is an ever-changing beast of a thing. Especially in this first year, I’ve been told. As soon as Ailey and I get used to things a certain way, she learns a new trick like, say climbing the stairs (yep…), and it’s a whole new ball game.
Motherhood has been the most profound experience of my life so far. Caring for this tiny human has been such an unexpected joy–my ultimate labor of love. I am exhausted, ecstatic, and filled to overflowing.
This tiny person is teaching me how to be more selfless, how to be more loving, and how to better consider only what really matters.
