The Road So Far

I am enjoying the chaos, confusion and the mess that is motherhood. I have learned it’s more than cuddles, feeding and pooping. I have also learned to embrace my messy hair, stretch marks and spit up stained shirts.

Ryan will be 6 months in a few weeks, and has entered this exploration phase full force. It seems like the day he started rolling over, he turned into this independent, loud, eating machine. He only tolerates being held for long enough to eat and take off my glasses, and it’s bittersweet to watch him gain independence.

Teething seems to come in waves, we are managing with teething rings, teething beads, washcloths, and his fingers(and sometimes toes). His gums aren’t red or swollen yet, so I imagine we’ve got a long road ahead of us.

-Until next time, hugs & mother love❤️


Introducing Babiicakes

Hello everyone, I was born in Brooklyn NY and raised in the south. My husband is a cross country truck driver and I am a nurse. We currently live in eastern NC, with hopes of buying a house in the next few years. I have an awesome and adorable step-son, and I became a first time mom in December of 2015.

I spend a lot of time attempting to balance motherhood, marriage, school, and work. (When I a schedule that gives me more than 4 hours of sleep I will let you guys know.) I enjoy video games, baking and documentaries. I “fangirl” over too much to mention.

I’m excited to be a part of our diverse group of weasels and share the things I have learned.
