lesson learned.

before i became a mother, i thought i knew it all. 
i was scared to be a mom but i honestly felt more than confident in myself. 
i had big dreams & expectations. 
i mean, could it really be that hard??

enter Elijah. 
this sweet, loving boy of mine has humbled me so much, 
in ways that i didn't even know needed humbling. 
he has taught me that nothing in life goes as expected.

i do not know it all. 
i take each day one at a time,
some days hour by hour. 

i'm not happy every single moment, 
but i'm happy at the end of the day.
{and tired...}

motherhood is absolutely nothing what i thought it would be,
but absolutely everything i hoped for. 

so, dear Elijah boy, thank you for being nothing i expected and everything i needed
some days are harder than others, much much harder
but they are still filled with lots of joy & love that make those hard moments {almost}
worth it.
