Well hello family!
I always wondered why we celebrate baby's birthday months. I kind of understand it now. It's because we never know what the future may hold. So we celebrate the MOMents not really the month but the moments.
So in our family we have this tradition of singing the Stevie Wonder version of Happy Birthday to you. Today I woke up well today Zi'Joy woke me up with her traditional smile and laughter and rolling. She knew that something special was going on today. I realized that today was her 7 th month birthday.
For 9 months of pregnancy and 7 months living in this world today my little one turn 7 months. I have blogged about our Journeys our Adventures not every day but Faithfully, stylishly and in our truth. I feel like this Blog My Life our journey together has been so much more Fuller because she has become such a big part of my life. She makes each day enjoyable even the challenging times like when I took a vacation day off the other day just so we could have Halloween together and enjoy ourselves. We were going to do a Mommy and Me day but it things don't always go as planned. Poor little on the suffering growing teeth. So we just spent the day at home and made the best of it heading out trick-or-treating candy.
I have to remind myself that is not about the destination but it is about the journey and I think being an older mom 43 for the first time it gives me a perspective that I would not have had as a younger Mom. I'm more relaxed and more laid-back I am more open to things not going as planned. I think the one commonality that we all have is as mother's as women it can be challenging. We are expected to be Superwoman I want to bust that myth yet change the narrative that being single older mom can be a wonderful thing.
This is our stylish Journey to and through her 7 months. Right before fall settled in comfortably and the coldness overtook us this beautiful photo shoot took place at a park after our church service. I love these photos the pink and the yellows they all somehow work together. Pictures 1-4. Zi'Joy with her big flower she is known for her signature flowersr. I with my African print head scarf just a piece of African material that I wear more often than naught.
Picture 5 was from this morning her joyous smile and her bib that says born sassy.
6/7 another coordinated outfit of mother and daughter we went out to visit family and friends on this day.
8-11 our Halloween wedding coordinator looks. My daughter's calendar is full we went to 3 Halloween party and on this day of Halloween I was so tough it out of Halloween costumes I decided to be comfortable and coordinated with my daughter as she was a ladybug and I just decided to coordinate in the Beautiful sweater and head wrap.
The other pictures are among some of my favorites of the past 7 months. Ahhh how quickly time flies when one has a child. Very cliche but very true it seems like in the blink of an eye we have made it this far. By taking one day at a time one Journey at a time one step at a time when smiling Time 1 stylus Journey at a time we have made it here.
I sincerely thank you for reading Rocking With Us stylishly. Going on this journey with us. Reading Lurking commenting etc etc.
Until next we meet as always be well on your stylist Journey.
