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❤️
