I Will Catch You

We have been a family of three for three months, a quarter of a year or one full season, summer to fall. One one hand it feels like forever, on the other it feels like everything is new. My mom recently asked me if parenthood was harder then I thought. I said yes, and I am by nature, a pessimist. Parenthood is physically exhausting. I am 40 years old and my rotator cuff hurts. I would love to have done this at 35 but for the life of me, I couldn’t even think of 5 years of my life that I could have shaved off. They are all so precious to me. I like being an older mom, I like that we have lived our lives and had many adventures that brought us to our little Davy.

Davy is learning to walk on her own. She does this thing that is an utter miracle to me. She stands on her own, she will push off from my lap and stand for a few seconds. Sometimes she claps her hands for a few beats. She always falls onto me and I alway catch her mid fall and we laugh together. I gotcha. I will always catch you sweet baby girl. Happy Familiversary to us all.

Yeah, Yeah, I made that sweater too
