One year ago, Tice was about nine weeks old. It still looked like winter, because spring just wasn’t quite ready to grace us. Harper was planting some three-gallon variegated pittosporum for me, because I was constantly having to go inside to feed or change Tice, which made any type of projects or yard work hard to complete.
Today, things are much different.
Winter never really came this year, and it finally started raining again, so the angel trumpets and pittosporum have been thriving. Tice is my little helper, and I’ve been able to do lots of planting and weeding–which is good, because I have a lot to catch up on!
Having this lively 14-month-old makes those first weeks and months worth every moment. Not that it was that bad at first, but it was hard. Now, most days are fun with difficult moments just sprinkled here and there. If you’re a new mommy, and it feels like you’ll never be “normal” again, just hang in there. It gets better every month, and a year from now, you’ll barely remember how tough it was.
I took a lot of fun pictures this evening, so I’ll share more of them tomorrow.
