“slow is fast” ~Birthfit
I took a class through Birthfit before little man arrived to learn how to help other women through the motherhood transition (physically, nutritionally etc.) and to help myself.
During that class they coined a phrase “slow is fast” applying to how during this stage you actually get further in healing if you start slow and steady instead of jumping right back where you left off at the gym, risking injury.
But boy it could not feel more true for this stage of life! Period. Not just physically.
Some days it feels like the day is dragging on and I look forward to when my little guy can do x, y, z or even worrying about why he hasn’t done x, y, z.
But then there are day like now. Look at him! 😭 He is standing up all on his own pulling my laundry out of the basket (at least it’s not folded yet) 🙃! It feels as if just yesterday he was a teeny tiny baby who slept all day swaddled up in a wrap on my chest waking up to give me smiles. Just yesterday it feels like I was worrying about how he would spend 45 minutes nursing causing anxiety over not being able to do anything else but sit there. Oh and if he was gaining enough weight.
Now he is a chunky thigh little boy who is crawling, pulling up on all the furniture and getting into mischief!! These past 9 months have gone slow and fast all at the same time!
Even with as much as I tried to soak in all the memories good and bad it still has flown by.
Taking this time now to reflect and refocus on being even more present. Learning to let go of all the “stuff” that supposedly isn’t getting done. Allowing myself and Wesley some grace in this season of life (not easy for this type A person). I want to remember every little bit of this journey the good, the bad, the ugly. 💙
