baby is almost here

By December 14, 2016 9 Comments

It’s a magical time, this threshold of welcoming a new human into the world.

I keep trying to grasp it … in a few weeks, a baby will be here. I keep silently working it through, trying to help my mind understand it: this young life that is now stretching and moving inside of me will soon be outside of me, a person – a person!!! – that I will get to look at and meet and hold.

It’s too strange and big of a transition for the mind to grasp, really.

And it’s wonderfully mysterious and baffling and exciting.

Like most second time moms, I possess mostly amnesia about what it was like to care for a newborn. But I can recall attempting to get just a few simple things done each day (such as shower, eat something substantial/warm – not just another granola bar – send that one email …) and often failing to get that simple list done, again and again.

Based on that, I’m going to tentatively guess I won’t be blogging prolifically in the next few months. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But, I do have lots of wonderful things lined up for you for the coming months …

    I din’t know you were expecting either, how exciting !!! I am way past this magical time of motherhood (not too much but still, my youngest is 6) -one of them hahaha- and I am sending you tons and tons of good vibes. Just keep 4 things in mind : rest when the baby rest, really * keep hydrated, always *take time for yourself weekly *take time for your couple and ouh, I almost forgot : mother knows best so go with your gut !! :))

    Bishaah Tova your description of caring for a newborn is exactly how I remember it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Madelyn says:

    Best wishes Tara to lots of special moments! A loving “call” — take time for you & your family — we’ll be here when you’re ready ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Elle says:


    Love and well wishes for an easy and simple delivery! We are excited and happy for you.

    Your to-do list description made me laugh and was spot-on. I remember driving my newborn to a Dr. check-up while eating turkey deli meat straight out of the bag—that was lunch! I’m sure you’ll do better then that.

    I look forward to your Wednesday archived blog posts.

    Sending holiday and newborn joy to you and your family. I hope you enjoy this magical time.

We are on a mission to help you realize your playing big dream.
