March 1st, 2017. 5:54 P.M. The exact time and date that my heart and soul grew infinitely bigger in order to accommodate a love so deep.
I’d like to introduce the world to one of its newest, most precious little humans. My daughter – Acacia Everly. She was born bright eyed and healthy. I’m absolutely over the moon with happiness. Every cliché thing that I’ve ever been told about becoming a parent is 100% true. I went into that hospital as one person and left a completely new one. This past week has had its ups and downs. To say that I’m emotional right now would be an understatement, but overall it’s been the most blissful week of my life so far. Part of me wants her to stay this tiny forever – it actually makes me want to cry sometimes…but another part of me is so excited to see her personality blossom and watch her grow into her own person.
I’ve been taking a break from blogging the last week or so to adjust to the mom-life and recover from labor physically and emotionally. I’ll be posting her birth story in the next couple days.
