  • Hello, Instagram

    This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith. To say that she has a piece of my heart would be an understatement.

did you ever go to meeting uncle joe?

Has anyone ever put their child in Kindermusik? When my nieces were still young, my sister and sister-in-law enrolled them in the program. All I knew about it was that they sang “toys away” each time it was time to clean up. It was a bit that we did at home, and I didn’t know much about the class aside from that.

I put Remy in Kindermusik when she was eight months old. This picture was taken after her first-ever class. It was actually quite late in the game, as Cuddle & Bounce is from 0-12 months. Each class is 45 minutes in length and is filled with singing, circle dancing, baby massages, reading, sign language, and playing with a lot of different instruments. At first she was overwhelmed with the people as the noise. She’s a very serious baby in public and it takes her usually around 30 minutes to warm up in a room. After that, she squeals and zooms around. I loved Kindermusik from the start, but knowing that Remy wasn’t really into it at first had me questioning if I was even going to keep her in it. I’m so glad that I did! Not only have I made some really amazing friends from the program, but she so enjoys it now. I’ve also learned a lot about her overall development.

Tomorrow, Remy is going to graduate from Cuddle & Bounce and begin Sing & Play, which is for children from 12-24 months. I’m excited but also a little nervous. However, two of her best friends (and mine) will be joining us, so we should be just fine.

I highly recommend Kindermusik for any parent and child! Above is one of my favourite songs that we sing.
