Gosh. Motherhood is hard.
For me, it’s all about freaking out about something and then being totally okay with it the next week.
Here’s an example.
Baby Lilly just started eating solids and I did not handle it well. You can read about it here. I was so nervous and every time she gagged on something I was prepared to pry open her mouth and scrape out all the food. But I learned that this is common, so I relaxed a bit.
Now, she’s an old pro at it. Check it out!

Now she’s trying to stand and of course, I’m freaking out.
I want to wrap her and the entire house in bubble wrap because, in the last two days, she’s falling down twice and bumped her head once. Each time her big, blue eyes flooded with tears and the wailing rang through the house.
Nothing breaks a mother’s heart quite like the crying of her baby.
I know I need to relax and let these things happen, but it’s so hard. I’m excited about all her new skills, but I finding myself becoming a little too protective.
Have you gone through this?
