How I Rediscovered my Identity After Baby

The first few weeks of postpartum life are honestly a blur. I can remember being soaked in breastmilk, spit up, blood, or sweat. I was exhausted, in pain, and emotional. Overall, I was happy.

To say that I was physically and emotionally exhausted is an understatement. But here I am, y’all! 9 months later and feeling like I am steadily getting my groove back (Insert Salsa Dancer emoji here). Baby J still isn’t sleeping a full 12 hours uninterrupted. Baby E is sassier than ever. They’re both requiring a lot more attention than before. I’m still exhausted every day. Overall, I’m starting to feel a little bit more like “me”.
