Welcome to the world, Mia

She’s here. And it feels like she’s been here from the beginning. I looked at her face and thought, “Oh, there you are.” My Mia Grace. These past few weeks have all been a blur much in the same way it was when we first brought Logan home. This time, however, the shine and naive delirium of bringing home our first baby made way for the reality of what our new normal is. Life with two kids under two is a juggling act. I was well aware of how it would be but there was no preparing for the emotional roller coaster.

I’m still baffled that we have a daughter. Mike and I find ourselves saying that out loud daily. We have a little girl. She’s here. I have yet to put to words the profound responsibility I feel as a woman to be the example that Mia needs to grow into a strong woman herself.

Mia is a few days away from turning one month. We have been a family of four for four weeks now and every day we settle deeper into this journey. Logan is adapting as best as he can for a 20 month old…he always brings Mia her pacifier (which in Logan’s world is a big deal.) Soon enough we’ll be out of that foggy, survival mode. As always, when it comes to my life, I’m just holding on and trying to enjoy the ride.

This was our first picture together. I didn’t know I was a bow person until I found out we were having a girl.
