It's been about five weeks
since our PRINCESS has arrived
and of course I've wanted to blog about it.
I've been busy.
Like we moved into our new home
11 hours before she was born busy... Yeah.
I honestly did not realize how
exhausting and challenging
it would be having 4 children
and having 2 of those 4 children
one year apart.
I did not realize how
truly gut-wrenching it is
to have two children crying at the same time
and how hard the decision would be
of who to go to first.
I did not know there would be guilt associated
with choosing one cry over the other
and that the look in those little eyes when mama
says, "I'll be right there love"
, but yet they don't understand
why mama's not coming immediately
and it makes them sad...
Those big sad brown eyes
that break my heart numerous times a day...
No one told me about that part,
or about the feeling of relief
when you kiss those little hurts away
and receive those smiles of everything is okay,
or how big your heart would grow when you know
that right now in this moment you can make everything alright,
because you know there are times when you won't be able to...
No one mentioned that
being a mom of four would
ultimately be the
most rewarding and amazing thing that
I would ever do in my life
and that I could ever hold so much love at once.
They save those words,
that sage advice,
no one can tell you that.
You just have to figure it out as you go...
I know I have a lot of figuring out to do,
but I'm savoring the journey, the process,
and all of the moments of being a mom.
So without further ado,
I introduce our
the littlest love of my life
or as we affectionately call her
One W eek
Baby Ro is curious about her, AJ (the athlete), and Jane (the artist)
adore her, and Mr. Sergeant & I are completely smitten with her...
All in all we are in love with the tiniest sergeant kid.
Stay tuned for more, as I've finally carved out writing time!
