Trying to find the right words to start this post, but I just keep typing and deleting
“Luna you are….Luna is….Luna I can’t believe….Luna…”
I keep repeating her name without being able to finish the sentence because I’m so emotional. When I say her name this is immediately what comes to mind:
The days when I carried her under my heart & it was just the two of us.
There were many exciting, and magical moments while being pregnant. I won’t get too detailed about it because those who carried life would understand the entire novel I’d write. Those who haven’t…well, unfortunately I’d probably bore you to death because this has to be experienced in order to truly feel the depth of it all.
If you’re anything like me, picking your baby’s name was just as exciting as hearing the first heart beat. Sounds crazy right? But here’s a little story to explain why it was so important to me.
Michael and I were stuck between two names “Milana or Luna.” I wrote both names on a big piece of paper and plastered it on the wall where I would look at them everyday. I figured my heart (and eyes) would eventually gravitate towards one. I was right. Every time I would look at the name “Luna” I felt something. I knew that was going to be my little girl’s name. The girl who would one day call me “Mommy,” and she would be my Little Luna.
It was no longer a “she.” That SHE was Luna May DeGeorge, and that little soul within me finally had an identity. From then on out the emotional bond intensified. I’d say her name a million times a day which made me feel like I already knew her.
“Good morning Luna. Good night Luna. Stop kicking me Luna. Do you like this nail polish Luna? I can’t wait to see you Luna. I love you Luna…..”
It was like this little person became my absolute EVERYTHING.
The day her name was chosen was the beginning of my forever with Luna May DeGeorge.
1.5 years for her is right around the corner. Somebody pinch me because this can’t be real. That means in just another 6 months she will be two!?!?!?! Which means, we are approaching those terrible two’s I keep hearing about. You know what my problem is? I’m always thinking ahead. Never getting to fully enjoy what each day brings. Not to mention finding myself in tears because I know in the blink of an eye Luna will be on her way to college, getting married and having kids. See what I mean?!?! Letting the insanity of how fast life goes by scare me!! That’s just it. I’m going to make a pledge to myself: LIVE IN THE NOW
♥ The girl can speak! lol for a second I was getting a little worried. Literally in just the last few weeks she’s been picking up on a lot of words. We took her to Build a Bear, and when you press the paw “let it go” from Frozen plays. Out of nowhere she shouts “let goooooooo!” Mike and I looked at each other like “what just happened!?”
Her favorite word is “BYEEEEEE” dragging out the “E.” lol The other day I had to wake her up from her nap (which I never do, but we had to go somewhere) and she raises her little arm, quietly saying “byeeeee.” hahaha it was the cutest thing.
Omg and the way she says “shoe” is so friken adorable!!! She has the sweetest most softest voice.
♥ She’s catching on to our everyday routines. For example when her and Mike would come to wake me up I’d put on my robe, and slippers. So now she walks in there, and immediately goes to bring me the slippers (putting them on my feet) and drags in my robe.
♥ She’s currently in this stage of being obsessed with shoes lol I will randomly catch her quietly in the corner trying to put her shoes on. When that fails she brings them over to me and starts putting them on my feet hahah we manage to get one toe in
♥ This is not something I’m proud of, but its crazy how well she knows that the T.V and phone is entertainment. She will literally sit down on the couch, hand me the remote and wait for me to turn something on. Then there’s this one particular youtube video in Russian that she is obsessed with! (thank’s mom for showing her lol) It’s some weird tractor carrying animals that make all these obnoxious noises. She will hand me the phone and go “baa baa baa” which is the sound the sheep makes. lol Then just sits there and stares at me while I turn it on. If I don’t, all hell breaks loose.
♥ All, but 2 of her teeth are in!!!
♥ She’s such a good eater! Eats anything we give her.
♥ It’s definitely getting harder to do anything that basically requires her to sit still like going out to eat, traveling somewhere, shopping…ect.
♥ She is SUCH a good sleeper! She goes to bed from 8pm-7am. Naps around noon for about 2-3 hours each day! Seriously, loves to sleep just like her momma haha
Speaking of sleeping…she finally doesn’t cry when we put her down! I lay with her while she drinks her milk then I pick her up kissing her goodnight, and gently place her in the crib. She looks up at me while I’m walking out with the sweetest smile. Sometimes we hear her talking or singing herself to sleep. It’s so cute.
♥ She points to just about everything. Nose, ears, eyes, her favorite is her butt, and belly button lol
♥ I’ve been speaking to her in Russian since day one. I feel pretty confident and comfortable with her knowing and speaking the language.
♥ Overall she’s the happiest, sweetest, full of life baby I’ve ever seen. Not just saying this because she’s my child. lol but really I can’t believe how incredibly lucky we got with her. She makes my job as a mommy much easier ♥
