Getting out--our first walk!

Ok, first of all, I just have to say that I don't know how you moms do it; it being anything besides taking care of your child(ren)! I know I've only been a mom for a few weeks, and that it definitely takes some adjusting, but I haven't had the time and/or the energy to do anything else, including blogging. Right now it just fathoms me to think of getting back to all of life's other responsibilities and activities, in addition to a child--cooking, cleaning, callings, socializing, serving, etc. Seems unattainable at the moment! I've decided I'll just take it one day at a time. :) So hats off to all you amazing women!

But anyway, I just wanted to make a little post about mine and Beck's first walk today! Thankfully it was decent outside; well, decent for around here, anyway (40 degrees). It was soooo good to get out, and Beck enjoyed it too. I think I'm adjusting to the responsibilities of motherhood just fine, and I really do find so much joy and love in it, but I am not adjusting so well to being home all day every day, with almost no social interaction. :( The doctor says we shouldn't take Beck out until at least March, and we don't really have many neighbors to hang out with, either. So I'm totally fine, and "this too shall pass," (and then I'll probably look back and cry and wish I had this time back with my newborn!), it's just a huge change of lifestyle I'm still getting used to. Before this, I probably had never stayed at home for more than two days. Ok, now I'm blabbing. But I'm good and happy and just enjoying and adjusting to motherhood! Maybe once I get a hold on things I'll have time to catch up on blogging. But if any of you do want to come hang out with me while I have to be cooped up, let me know!

And a couple more pics, just for fun. :)

Pics of Beck!

Thank you all for your sweet thoughts and congratulations! Our adorable little boy has been keeping us pretty busy lately, so I haven't had much time to post! But I did add a bunch of pictures to Facebook. So until I can add to the blog, feel free to check them out!



Here's a sneak peek of the cutie. :)
