You got this me!!

Wow! I have so been ignoring my blog since Mr. Taos Ray came into the world! So much has changed in the Finney house!! 

Taos was born Thursday June 19th at 7:49 am weighing 8 lbs 11oz and 21 1/2 in long!! I'll have the full scoop on that day for you soon!! What a wonderful blessing our little man is!! 

Adjusting to two kiddos opposed to one was almost impossible it seemed the first month. Bathtime was the worse!! Everyone is cranky and ready to get to bed...Momma included!! Little man wanted to be held, but I had to be scrubbing on my girl! Who knew a relaxing bath could be so stressful? And by the way I had to just let go of that nagging voice inside, and let toy explosions be a part of my home decor.  I began to forget what daily hygiene don't judge me you know you've been there! There were nights that I crashed out in my clothes that were covered in the day of babies. But the two things that have  kept me going are a wonderful and supportive husband and the fact that no matter what my house looked like or even what I looked or smelled like I went to bed with a full heart! I remember in the last months of my pregnancy I tortured myself with the single thought of what if I don't love Taos the same way I love Pecos? I can honestly say the moment I laid eyes on him in that delivery room I fell head over heels for that sweet baby boy, and wouldn't you know even though it's hard to explain but I love both of my children with the same amazing love! Watching how they interact with each other warms my heart on a daily basis. Pecos' reaction the first time she met Taos is the most precious video you'll ever see! I've been told a many a times they could go viral. The day we brought Taos home she sat on the couch and held him and rocked and sang rock a bye baby to him. My mom and I just sat there and bawled. Children are the greatest blessings from God. 

With each day and new battle defeated I slowly got the hang of life with two sweets!  I admit I'm still adjusting and I learn something new each and every day. I can't even imagine life not being a family of four. I fail daily and am constantly asking forgiveness. My children love me no matter how badly I mess up or even if it's the same mistake over and over. And for that I will endure any amount of Bubble Guppies episode over and over again!! As mothers we need to remember that we are doing this for the first time and we are bound to make a few, or a lot, of mistakes. We should join together to lean on each other, instead of tearing each other down. Does it really make a better mother who loves their child better  based on breastfeeding or formula feeding, when you start solids, whether you use disposable or cloth diapers, or if you chose to or not to vaccinate your children? I honestly don't believe any of those things effect your love for your children! Keep your head up Momma no matter what others tell you. Don't you know we all love unsolicited advice from others!! LOL! 

This is just one busy and crazy Momma who understands what you might be going through! Leaning on each other and being a little less judgmental we can make motherhood a little more easier!
