We are two peas in a pod, Isley and I. Three peas if you count her amazing father. We are both incredibly blessed to work from home. So, aside from those few showers and nap times, we are always together.
I can count on one hand the number of times we’ve left her in the past eleven months. Some people give us a hard time for not getting out more etc but I am so happy to spend my days with this little lady of ours. Even the nights (which lately is every night) when she wakes up at 2am and thinks it’s party time.
I don’t mind at all because as she gets closer and closer to turning one I am reminded that she will not be this little forever. She will not always want to snuggle me in the middle of the night and she definitely won’t want to chase her father and I around our tiny apartment, giggling like crazy at 3am. For now, I’ll happily take the sleepless nights and the bags under my eyes.
