New Year, Let’s See
Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018!
In case you missed it, we welcomed baby girl Kwynn Emmi to the world on Nov. 27 at 7:04pm. She was 8lbs 9oz and 21.5 inches long!
I have been cocooning with my new babe and sharing a few pics over here.
While it wasn’t an easy birth, a story I will share down the road, it was worth every second. She is an utter delight and such a good baby in all ways!
As my husband and I settle into our new lives as parents and begin a new year, I wanted to thank you so much for all the support and love you have shown us over social media and through these newsletters.
From pregnancy, to birth, to postpartum, I have more life lessons to share than ever before.
And I look forward to sharing it all with you in the coming months.
Now that I have completed the first 40 days of parenthood, I am starting to configure what this new life will look like, probably similar to what you may be doing in regard to this new year, 2018.
What do I think of goal setting this time of year?
I have to be honest, and not because I just had a baby, I tend to ease real slow into my intentions for the year ahead.
While some people are gung ho on New Year, New You, I tend to be more “New Year, Let’s See.”
I prefer to take my time in January and turn inward for as long as it takes. Sometimes I am crystal clear on my intentions for the new year, other times, I have to let it unfold and reveal what life is calling for.
I share this, because if you are feeling turned inward as opposed to jumping on the “This has to be the best year ever!!!” train, then I invite you to trust that.
Trust that Life is unfolding as it should right here today, and that if you don’t yet have clarity around your 2018, then that’s ok.
There’s no rush.
Take your time.
My guess is some really good ideas are right around the corner. And each idea, each intention, each action will reveal itself to you, so long as you stay open and available.
Will you stay open and available?
You can even say,
I take my time
I ease in
I am open and available
I am ready to begin
Doesn’t that feel nice?
I’m really looking forward to sharing some neat discoveries with you in the coming weeks and months.
Between nursing and diaper changes, these newsletters are still a way for me to feel connected. Not only to you, but also to me.
So again, thank you for your support, your love and your well wishes as we welcomed our little girl into the world.
I would love to hear what you do to get the new year started on the right foot. Will you come share it with me in the comments?
Looking forward to an expansive and beautiful 2018.
