Remember when I started this blog back when I was pregnant with Ella? I imagined myself writing monthly updates and little tid bits about sleep and solids and postpartum workouts. Then Ella turned 4 months, and I went back to work, and she stopped sleeping well, and I became a zombie who could barely put one foot in front of the other.
I am so behind in writing and updating that I have no idea where to begin. So maybe at the beginning??
Lots has happened since my last update. For one thing, I left my corporate job as an investment accountant to be a full time stay at home mom and a part time yoga instructor. It was hands down the best decision of my life. I know being home with a child is not for everyone, and not everyone is blessed enough to even have that as a choice. However, I finally feel like I am finally doing what I was put on this Earth to do. Being a mom and bringing yoga to as many people as possible? Now that sounds like a good life to me.
I also decided to go on medication for postpartum depression. I was really struggling with what I thought was baby blues for a long time. Some days were awesome, other days were terrible, but most days were somewhere in the middle. Feeling sad, waking up every morning telling myself that today would be different. Today I would be happy. One foot in front of the other, all that jazz. But nothing got better. In the end of June I went on medication, and I am so happy I did. My only regret is that I waited so long to go to my doctor. I will be writing more about this since I know so many women suffer in silence.
I decided to wean Ella from breastfeeding at 8 months. We are down to one feeding a day, and I am having really mixed feelings about it. Part of me thinks I jumped the gun in weaning and the other part cannot wait to have my body back. I am excited to write more about this as well!
Expect lots of posts (and lots of pictures!) coming soon! All about being a mom, and of course, being me!
