At five months, Emiana enjoys bouncing in her jumperoo, being outside and eating grass, babbling, and trying lots of new things. We had a fabulous time on our first visit together to Silver Dollar City.
This month we also celebrated my first Mother’s Day as a mommy. We enjoyed getting dressed up and heading out to eat at Nonna’s, one of my favorite Italian restaurants. I thoroughly enjoyed our time together but found myself still somewhat heavy hearted. I wanted to be a mommy for a long time before we were finally blessed with Emiana and, during that time, Mother’s Day was definitely the most emotionally challenging day. I realize many people, including some we know personally, find themselves in the place where we were just a short time ago. Hang in there and know that although it often feels like a lonely place to be that others do care deeply for you and are thinking of you.
