Me and my baby girl. I never thought I’d be this person, wearing matching outfits with my toddler in a field. And now I honestly can’t imagine anything better. Her 2nd birthday is right around the corner and I can’t believe we’ve gotten to this places. Sometimes I look at myself and think, “remember when you were scrambling to understand yourself as a mother?” There are days when that still feels like the position I’m in, trying to navigate my conflicting feelings of being so in love yet still frustrated and confused by all that comes with it. But with each passing day, it makes more and more sense, and it becomes more clear that there is no better thing in this world than being her mom.
