FFF's theme this week is having a ball and it's all about our children doing what they love and learning new things! :D
I won a great BumGenius one-size-fits-all diaper from Macy Fron's blog. Thank you so much Macy! I love the diaper. I haven't seen such a cute diapered butt in so long! I am in love with BumGenius's diapers! They are soft and comfortable. They adjust to fit any size. And you never need a diaper cover... it's built in! The Absorbency on these diapers is excellent... but the thing that gets me most excited (especially if you know me!) is its cost efficiency. Not only do you not have to buy disposable diapers, but you can keep the same diapers throughout your child's diaper-wearing years... newborn through toddler-hood! My daughter is around 31-32 inches tall and is about... erm... 26 pounds-ish(???) I'm not sure. I know she's pretty tall and heavy, but they fit her perfectly! So mommy gets to learn something new! Yay!
In case you were wondering... she never leaves our phones alone! She loves electronics! (Daddy does a happy dance...)
I also added the last photo of my little girl drinking from a big girl cup! :D She just started drinking from a cup a couple of weeks ago with NO spills! I'm so proud of my munchkin!

Mother's Day is coming up very soon and it seems like a lot of blogs are having awesome parties!
Notes From My Nest is having a huge blog bash to celebrate Mother's Day! To play along, I'm going to share what I've learned about Motherhood.
I didn't know what kind of mom I would be until my daughter was born. I was frightened about how I could be a good mom. I soon figured out that motherhood comes naturally to most of us... including myself. My daughter was born and I did what came naturally, I nursed her. It was so wonderful... the bond. It is indescribable. It still makes me cry sometimes. Co-sleeping also came naturally. It made sense to us. My daughter hated her crib. She only slept in our arms. The bed worked for us. That was something I never thought I would do! I also carried her everywhere. She literally didn't nap in her crib or bassinet or couch (anywhere besides my arms) until she was 6 months old. I loved to hold her and keep her close to me. I wanted her close. I still do. I sometimes joke to myself that I'm an Attached Parent by accident... I don't like to associate myself that way, though. I just do what is natural to me. It doesn't work for all. Sometimes I find myself checking if she's breathing to this day. She is the most precious and amazing little person... I couldn't imagine not being a mother. I can't remember what I did before motherhood. How did I spend my day? What would fill the void that my daughter fills now? That void must've existed before her, right? She is my blessing. I am so blessed to be a mother. I couldn't imagine it any other way!
