I'm still here!

I am indeed still here! The past few weeks have been vivid and a blur at the same time and I feel like life is finally beginning to feel a little more normal. Motherhood is definitely a shock to the system since I've only ever cared for myself -- now there is this tiny creature that needs me to do everything for it. It's one of those things that you can't fully understand until you actually experience.

Glory Maeve is coming to life and to hear the coos and see the first few smiles is truly amazing. I had hardly changed a diaper and barely knew how to hold a baby before she was born, so the two of us have really come along way in the past few weeks. I'm a mama (still so strange to say!).

Well, she's going to be very stylish, that's for sure :)

You're bed is made...you're doing a great job ;)

I love how real this post is, because whenever I tell people that I don't know how to hold a baby, they are always surprised.

It's good to see that you are both adapting to each other. Hi Glory!

All the clothes you've made for her are beautiful! I wish they were for sale as well!

You are not in pyjamas, your bed is made. You survive! The first baby is quite a revolution!
Long and happy life to Glory

You two are adorable! Loving the updates.

You look so perfect together. Also, I, like many other crazy women, have some names planned for future children and two names for potential daughters were Glory and Maewen, so I feel like we must be kindred spirits on some level. :)

I mean this baby is just about as cute as can be. So happy for you!
