{ Life & marriage with a baby }

Having a baby is a total life changing event. Some days are harder than others but everyday is so rewarding and leaves you feeling extremely grateful looking at the life you have created. Not going to lie, most days we don’t know what we are doing but we figure things out along the way. 

During my pregnancy Cody and I grew much closer together than ever before. It was such an amazing experience bonding over the life inside my belly wondering who he will be and what he will look like. Cody came to every single one of my doctor appointments, never missed a single one. Being pregnant was one of my favorite experiences together. Once the baby came into our lives things got hectic! Life was so different. We couldn’t devote as much time to one another like we were used to. Our priority now was to take care of our little guy and make sure he is fed, healthy, and happy. Finding time for just us was nearly impossible. 

The first few weeks after coming home from the hospital after my c-section was even more difficult. I couldn’t do much and Cody had to pick up everything around the house as well as taking care of Roman. I would get frustrated because I couldn’t do anything and would take it out on Cody. I have been extremely lucky however to have had Cody home with me for the past 6 weeks.  He has been such a tremendous help and it has been great learning about parent life together, I don’t think I would have been able to do it without him. 

The first week I was also an emotional wreck! Everything made me cry. I think it’s called baby blues or something like that. Thinking about Romie getting bigger each day was heartbreaking to me and I dont think Cody knew exactly how to comfort me while I was going through that. As the weeks went by though things got much better and even a little easier too. We started to find some more time to ourselves as we got a little more adjusted to our “new life”.  We found things to do as a family like going on daily walks around our neighborhood and putting our phones away so we can just talk. Romie always slept through our walks so Cody and I would just talk about life which was really nice! 

Although everyday things have become a little more challenging and take a lot longer to get around to doing, I wouldn’t want it any other way.  Cody and I love the life we have now. Even though we are still getting used to it and figuring out how to balance it all, our marriage has never been better! I love my little family and I am so thankful for them <3

P.S. The super cute midi dress  I am wearing in the photos below is from PinkBlush. What I love about this dress and many other styles from PinkBlush is that I could’ve worn them during my pregnancy and now postpartum as well! If you're interested you can shop my exact dress here
