i'm new at this.

Sometimes I forget that Baby Girl is just eighteen months old. She is so smart in some ways that I forget that she has only been on this planet for just over eighteen months. That's not a very long time.

She's new at everything.

Everything is new, everything is different, every day has a new first.

There are times when I look at her and cannot for the life of me figure out what I'm supposed to do. When she's screaming for what appears to be no reason, when she's throwing a tantrum or when she's asking for something in some language I don't understand.

I adore motherhood. No wait, I adore being a mother to Baby Girl. She's awesome. She's the coolest person ever. But I don't always know what I'm doing. Most of the time I don't actually.

But I'm figuring it out. We're figuring it out together.

We're new at this. We'll get it eventually.

Well said! When I first had my son someone told me, "It's your first time being a mother but it's also his first time being a baby." It helps put things in perspective because I know we are both new at this and learning together.
