Elia Sleeps

So, after Elia awoke from her nap, with a stinky diaper for Mama, I tried to place her on the potty. Unfortunately, this afternoon, she wanted nothing to do with it. She fussed and shook her head NO that she was not going to go potty. Oh well...Elia 1, Mama 0. We decided to face the cold dead on and get out of the house. This weather poses huge issues. How do you get out of the house with a little one when it's so chilly your nose freezes? Well I put her in layers and we went to the mall to walk around. Elia enjoyed strolling, and the water feature at Brookfield Square captured her attention and gave her some good giggles. She also enjoyed Yo Gabba Gabba (not sure of spelling) at Gymboree. Well let's just say whatever was going on in that store she was dancing up a storm and having a blast. This evening she was a sleepy bug, and went to bed early (before 7:00). She has a bit of a cold, so I think that's been making her more sleepy lately.

In order to pick up where I left off earlier, I will have to take a peak at where I was.  If I don't write immediately, I am enjoying a glass of Gascon Malbec, I will definitely write soon. Wine for Mama = GOOD, Sleep for Elia = FABULOUS!!

What am I doing?

Yes, I decided to start a blog. I am not too sure that I have anything remotely interesting to share, but I thought I would give it a go. Today is like any other day, so why now? Although I cannot answer this, I am excited to get started.

As you can see in my profile, I am a fairly new Mom. Elia, who has stolen my heart, is just under 15 months. I'm sure, as most Moms would agree, it is amazing to partake in the world of Motherhood. I was always a vocal person about not wanting to be a Mom too soon, not feeling confident I could be a "good" and loving Mom, and not sure I was ready. The best thing happened, though, when by surprise I found out I was pregnant. Wow how my world was flipped upside down.

It was my last semester of nursing school, with final projects to attend to and the search for the "perfect" job as my primary focus. I can say the farthest thing from my mind was starting a family. Although my husband and I had been married just under 2 years, I really wanted to get my nursing career started before bringing children into the world. It was early April when my Dr. confirmed that, "yes" I was indeed pregnant. Although I had my own plans, God had even greater plans for us, the best gift we could have ever imagined, even if at the time I was hesitant. Oh yes, I cried when pregnancy test after pregnancy test they were all positive. How could this happen to me now? How would I start my nursing career and leave after 6 months to have a baby?

Elia calls...I will be back later!
