Beyond the blog

Joining Lisa-Jo and others this morning for Five Minute Friday, where we cut the words loose for just five minutes, and see where they fall. No editing, just encouraging the others who play along. The topic today is Beyond.

Beyond this blog my life has been moving along quite quickly. I am busy, moving, and interested in every new little development in my little ones life. There are so many, many firsts. More than I ever realized. 

The first time she rolled over (yesterday!)

The first time I used cloth diapers (yesterday too!)

The first noticeable growth spurt (also yesterday--it was a big day for baby!)

The first smile (a couple weeks ago)

The first time I left her, and a bottle with my mom over a feeding (a couple weeks ago--and I learned that "lost" feeling when a mama's separated from her little one)

The first time to church

The first time I let her nap in the church nursery (and obsessively checked on her every 5 minutes...)

The first clothing I made for her (a cute 4th of july skirt)

There are a lot of firsts, and I'm celebrating every one of them. I may not write quite as much around here as I used to, but I haven't forgotten about it either. It's this life-beyond, and it is more fascinating than I ever thought it would be.


  1. Aw it sounds like you are in the same season of life that I am! I have a little girl who just turned two months old yesterday! It is crazy how fast life goes isn't it? It seems like just yesterday I was anxiously anticipating her birth! I hope you enjoy every moment of motherhood and all of her little firsts! Congrats!
