One Month of Motherhood (and Maya!)

Today Maya is a month old!! While in some ways it feels like time has flown, in other aspects, it feels like she’s always been here, a part of our lives. Rationally I know this not to be true–but most days lately are a version of groundhog day — repeating the same cycles over and over. For someone like me, who is always on the go and can’t sit still … you’d think I’d be going nuts.

But the truth is, I wouldn’t trade this time home with her for anything. It’s been incredible — all of it. Even when I take into account how little sleep I’m getting, or the fact that my body isn’t quite mine yet.

All of it is worth it when I look into those little eyes or snuggle her close, breathe her sweet baby smell or watch her try to scoot or reach for something. Her legs are quite strong and so is her neck — she is lifting her head more and more these days and it’s amazing to watch her grow.

So today, I’d like to wish my sweet Maya a happy one-month birthday … and pat my husband and I on the back for surviving our first month of parenthood! It hasn’t been easy … especially with Rocco, who is still very much a baby himself. But it’s been the most incredible thing we’ve ever done –and I can’t wait to see how she continues to grow!

Sorry for the short post–and lack of posting last week! Kind of an insane week. Hope you’re all doing well!

PS–Sorry if this is TMI but imagine my surprise when my PERIOD began today — I thought nursing would put the kibosh on that … nope! I called my OB and he said it is normal. Lucky me!

  1. Good to hear from you! The baby/puppy thing is definitely hard (and we didn’t even have Buster with us for the first few months). I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying your time with Maya so much.

    Happy one month Maya!

  2. Congrats and Happy Birthday, Little Maya! Melissa- i’ve known for a long time that you’ll make a terrific mother, and now you’re merely showing it. You are doing fantastic. As for your period… can we say Ready for #2??? 🙂

    1. Aw … thanks so much Avanti–that means a ton 🙂

      LOL — Luis keeps pushing it but I’m like dude, please! I think maybe we’ll space them 2 yrs apart or so?? We shall see!! 😉

  3. I have been following your blog since you posted sometime back this summer about eating McDonalds. I have to say I love seeing new posts and following your journey into motherhood. I can not believe your little one is a month old already. I have a little one that will be 2 weeks tomorrow and the time is flying. Enjoy every minute! Happy 1 Month to Maya!
