So, it's not exactly a secret that the first six months of motherhood kicked my booty. In all seriousness, I was pretty consumed with postpartum anxiety (and pre existing depression). There were weeks where I rarely left the house with Asa for fear that x,y, or z would happen. Looking back on this I realize how crazy that is, but of course hindsight is 20/20. Part of dealing with this and putting those fears behind me is making goals for myself. So I thought I'd share some things I'm looking forward to these next six months.
I am really looking forward to this one! Whether I go alone while James watches Asa or we get a sitter and go together I don't really care. I know there are some Mommy matinees here, but I just want to go and enjoy myself and not have to worry about the little one. Got to make this happen.
I cannot wait to give Asa his first taste of a ripe Texas peach or some juicy melon. I hope he loves them as much as we do.
Call me a dork but I'm so excited about planning Asa's first birthday party.
Asa is really enjoying playing with toys right now. he loves music and anything that makes noise. I'm so excited to watch him grow, learn and play over these next few months.
We are lucky to have a pool at our apartment and I am so *stoked* to be able to take Asa swimming whenever we'd like. If bath time is any indication, he is going to love the pool.
How about you? What are you looking forward to doing with your little one?
