However, as the agony of bleeding ears from the screaming began to subside shortly after month 3, the joys of parenthood started to shine through.
Olivia is now 7 months old and I fall more in love with her every day (although I don't know how because I already feel like I couldn't possibly love her anymore than I already do). Even though it took us a while to get used to the new lifestyle of parenthood versus the singlehood we were so used to after 30 years, Robby and I are both finding ourselves being total smitten kittens.
Olivia's personality is definitely what I expected of any girl that came from my family. Boisterous, playful, happy, loud, girly, and full of attitude.
My 1st Mother's Day was spent not only celebrating my beautiful mother and mother-in-law, but also reveling in the life of my mommyhood. The love a parent has for their child is immeasurable and I wouldn't trade this for anything.
I hope you had a great weekend celebrating your mother's and yourself if you are a mother. To you, I wish you a Happy Mother's Day.
