On Friday, May 3, at 5:01pm
most of you know that the Valverde family grew
by 2 precious feet
as welcomed Piper Annette into the world.

For the past 7 weeks,
life has been a whirlwind of 

No one can prepare you for motherhood,
but something happens
the moment they place your precious child in your arms.
You change instantly.

For 49+ days I have been adjusting to this change,
and coming into my own as Piper's momma.
For 49+ days we have been embracing our new family dynamic.
So many changes.
So much "new".
(shockingly, this OCD girl has made it through totally unmedicated and with only one glass of wine)

(with some cooperation from Piper)
the year hiatus I took from blogging is over,
and will be filled with many stories, lessons, & memories 
made through this journey they call parenthood.

The wild ride for us it just beginning...
