True Life: I’m a Mommy Blogger

8.19.2011

I’ve been checking out this linkup for the last few weeks but I couldn’t quite decide where I fit in. Previously, I would have considered myself a general blogger but things have changed and so have I.

Yes- it’s true I have turned into a Mommy blogger. It certainly didn’t start out that way.  When I started my blog it was just the two of us- my husband and me- learning to live our new life overseas.  He’s in the military and we had just been stationed at our first overseas post. I blogged about our adventures in Africa so that all of friends and family could see what was going on with us.

Of course, as things always do, that all changed on September 16, 2010 when I found out I was pregnant. I think from that moment on, my brain, and this blog, were consumed by all things baby.  I did, after all, wait for 9 years to become a Mommy!

Our sweet girl, Emerson Olivia, was born May 18th. Needless to say our lives haven’t been the same since!

Now,  my days (and and most of my posts) are filled with this little princess and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

You can find most of my posts about our little munchkin here. I’ve loved having my blog to document everything as she grows and changes and it’s also perfect for sharing pictures and news with our family and friends who are so far away.

That’s about it in a nutshell.

Of course, a Mommy blogger post wouldn’t be complete without a video. So, here is Emerson, at 3 months, talking to her Momma. (Please ignore my dorky voice- like I mentioned in yesterday’s post I will do anything to get E to talk or smile. Smile

Aw I love the video and her little outfit is too cute. We saw a lot of cute things like that when we were on vacation but none with the letter P :(

She is SO cute! I love her little faceplant into the couch, my son (who is 4 months) does the same thing and it's hilarious!

I love the name Emerson by the way! :)
