Newborn Bliss // It’s the Little Things

The sweet smell of her skin and discovering her tiny little features is what I live for these days. Dagny is exactly 6 weeks old today and I’ve been her mama for that long plus 39 weeks and 3 days. Some moments I wish time would slow down and others that it would speed up, but I wouldn’t trade this season for the world.

Every day is different. I’m realizing that some “must have” items have been totally unnecessary. I don’t know how anyone stays sane during colic (or what I’d do if simethicone drops didn’t work for us as they have the last two weeks). I don’t know how I got so lucky to have such a sweet baby to mother. I pretty much know that I’ve never loved my husband or Dagny more than I do today, and for that, I’m in a total state of newborn bliss!

I know I won’t be the perfect mom to Dagny or that I’ll always have the right answer, but I will try as hard as I can to make sure she knows she is loved, smart, funny, and beautiful. I’ll always make sure she can come to me for anything without fear and that she knows her voice matters. We’ll teach her the ways of our crazy world and how our values and ethics might shape her into a good contributor to society. Those are the big things.

As for the little things…I’ll just soak in all her newness, pull those tiny footy pjs from the “newborn” size drawer while I still can, change another diaper, and nurse her until she’s full. Commence heart bursting!

productivity for working moms

welcome!

I'm Jessica!

I used to glorify "busy." If I wasn't busy, I wasn't doing enough. But when I became a mama, my entire outlook shifted.

 

The only way out involved a complete overhaul of my time, money & communication systems.

 

Today, I'm doing LESS and achieving more.

It's a productivity dream!

I'm still learning (and always will be!), but my purpose here is to help YOU achieve this level of space in your life too.
