message to Delilah

Hi babes, I want to start off by saying happy three months to my baby girl Delilah! I say it all the time but OMG time flies and I notice it now more than ever as I see my baby changing everyday!

As you all know, I love to share my journey as a new mama and I love talking to other moms out there and connecting in general so in today’s blog post I want to share a message I will be passing on to my daughter so I’m warning you now, you might need some tissues if you’re a cry baby like me! LOL

Things have changed so much since having the baby and as cliché as it sounds, it truly does change your perspective with everything that goes on in your life. I used to say before “I don’t have time for the bulls*t!” but now I really don’t, having a baby has taught me to be strong, focus on what matters and to live in the moment.

Bryant and I always have conversations of how it’ll be as Delilah grows up, what we’re going to say and do in certain situations but one thing is for sure, we love her from the bottom of our hearts. I always tell Bryant that we have to be patient, learn from Delilah but also teach her to do the right thing. There are many answers on what “the right thing” should be but I always want her to remain kind.

So here is my message:

Delilah, I always want you to be proud of who you are and where you came from. You will come across difficult situations in life but never let it harden your soul. Remember the important things in life are to be happy, your family will always be there for you to support your dreams and there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. I will teach you to be independent and fearless to go after anything you want in life, anything is possible when you have the determination to get it done. Stand strong for what you believe in and never let anyone intimidate you. In such a short amount of time, I see you shining and how quickly you make a presence when you come into a room. Your smile makes me the happiest and I enjoy interacting with you and seeing something new everyday! I can only imagine the things you’ll say and do as you get older and I’ll be right here to guide you and help you navigate this crazy thing we call life. You have changed my life in more ways than you’ll ever know and I am a better person because of it. I’ll be your best friend and we can both drive your dad crazy (we already do) but it’s okay! LOL

Always,

Mom

I could’ve said so much more but I wanted to keep it light, things are changing everyday and I’m definitely here for the adventure. I won’t lie, the first few weeks were tough because no matter how prepared you are, once your baby is born your world completely flips around so you have the raging hormones, your body is in pain, you have zero sleep but in the end it’s all truly worth it and it gets better. This is definitely a vulnerable post but I hope you all enjoyed this different side of me.
