Mommy Milestones

I CAN EAT PIZZA AGAIN!!! Early on in my breastfeeding journey I discovered that eating pizza and anything in the cruciferous family gave my son, BabyCakes, a horrid tummy ache. Well friends, this week I tried pizza for the first time in over five months and baby was fine. I’m thrilled to welcome pizza back into my life… perhaps I’ll even be able to partake in roasted brussel sprouts this Christmas, we’ll see.

While welcoming back a few of my favorite foods may seem small, to me it is a milestone! That got me thinking… Every month, no every week, I read about BabyCakes’ development. When he hits a milestone I eagerly get out the camera and mark it on the calendar. Yet, I often forget that my baby isn’t the only one constantly growing and changing, I am too.

Being a mom, is an on-going journey. Like all long journeys motherhood has its ups and downs, which is why it is so important to mark our mommy milestones. Celebrating even little things like being able to eat pizza brings a little extra joy to the sometimes repetitive and tedious daily grind of motherhood.

    Sadly, I don’t think I have hit one recently. I have two boys – 3 years and 20 months old – and I am 7 months pregnant with baby #3. I am exhausted with no time to really do anything! I will say that I have been able to read a book which I used to love to do before my kids were born. I am reading only a couple pages a week but it is something!

    My little fella was allergic to milk protein – I’ve just started adding back dairy, and I’m so excited!
