Introducing: The Mommy Diaries

I'm both really excited about this new series and also totally nervous! When I was pregnant Jason and I went on a long walk and we talked about how we wanted to handle things once we had our baby. One of the most important things to me was that I kept blogging. I didn't know how much I wanted to include about motherhood and I thought I wouldn't talk about it too much. I wanted my blog to stay true to who I was, and I've learned now that it's important for me to blog about motherhood, since it's practically my whole life.

I've always known the only thing I ever wanted to "grow up to be" was a mom. I've never really known what my "specialty" was. I'm not super great at one thing.  I'm OK at a lot of things, but I'm not an expert at anything in particular. Now, obviously five months of motherhood doesn't make me an expert in it, but I've learned a lot, had a lot of "fun" experiences and I want to share these things on the blog!

I'm not your typical natural birth, breastfeeding only, mommy blogger. I had a very different path in my journey and that's really what I want to share with you. I want to help encourage other moms that they don't have to be perfect or be doing things "the right way" to have a happy baby or be a good mom.

I hope you all enjoy these Mommy Diaries (and I hope it doesn't drive you non-mommies away!)
