We are officially a family of three! I still can’t believe it. It feels so surreal. On March 16, 2021 Carter made his arrival to this world. We are so in love with him. He’s seriously the best! I’m staring at him as I type this out.
It’s so funny that the day before (March 15), I was really questioning and wondering when our Sweet Pea would arrive. I even asked on Instagram if you all thought I was going to deliver early, on time, or late. It turns out the answer is early haha.
A Family Of Three
The day Carter was born, everything happened so fast. I think this boy knew he was ready, and I had to get a C-section. I knew from there this boy would be keeping me busy. In the womb, he was the most active baby. He was nonstop moving haha. I definitely felt an instant connection with him. The moment he came out, I was already worried about him and hoped he was okay. While they were cleaning him up, I wanted them (doctors & nurses in the operating room) to hurry up and bring him to me. I felt like I was the only one that could make him feel better. When they finally placed him on my chest for skin to skin, Carter immediately nuzzled onto me and calmed down. It was the sweetest thing.
At first, I was in disbelief that I had a boy. Almost everyone predicted I would have a girl and even I was convinced I was having a girl. Remember the old wives tale I shared? The answer was predominately girl haha. So I guess it proves that those tales are not always accurate.
Some of you already suspected that the baby had arrived.
I stopped posting on social media and I haven’t created any content here. Having a newborn is for sure an adjustment. There’s so much to do and learn. We are trying to get to know Carter more and trying to understand what he needs all on top of sleep deprivation. We’re slowly but surely getting there. It’s an emotional roller coaster at times. I also want to be present. We all know how quickly time flies and having Carter really made me want to cherish every moment I have with him. Even if I’m exhausted, emotional, and frustrated I am so happy and so in love with him.
You guys, I’m a mom!!! Like I said it still feels surreal. Can’t believe Carter is ours and at the same time it all feels so natural.
As far as content going forward, I’ll admit that I’m not quite sure. I’ve always created based on my life’s circumstances while still being predominately fashion. I still love fashion and I do hope to continue since this space is for me. At the same time, I’m being realistic. There are other topics I want to talk about. Plus, I still have pregnancy content I have yet to share. I didn’t expect Carter to be here as soon as he did, so I have stuff that I drafted that I will share soon.
But like I said, I want to cherish every moment and be present and give myself a “maternity leave” and publish content as I have time to do so or until I figure out my groove.
