In just two short months – I cannot believe I am about to say this – our baby girl should be here. I can vaguely remember this happening with the boys once I hit 31 weeks, but it’s like all of a sudden, your pregnancy that feels like it’s taking forever — feels like it’s all coming to an end very quickly.
On April 8th, 2015, after nearly 24 hours of labor, our sweet William Joseph came into this world. That means that nearly three years ago – I became a mother.
Ahhh… motherhood. It has been my life’s most frustrating and difficult endeavor to date. Every time I feel like I know what I’m doing, reality knocks me on my ass. But at the same time, nothing in my life has been more rewarding. For every moment of frustration and self doubt, there are moments of immense happiness and love greater than I ever knew I was capable.
Three years into this motherhood journey, I have learned a lot. I’ll write an updated post to this one sometime soon (probably when I’m on maternity leave) but for now, this post that I wrote 2 years ago says everything and more.
It’s rare that you can go back and read something you wrote two years ago and still feel like you mean every. single. word. But I do. I really do.

I mean… what about this photo doesn’t scream (no pun intended) “I’m killing this whole motherhood thing?”
