A Year in Motherhood

Happy belated Mother's Day to all the mothers and soon-to-be mothers! Every year on Mother's Day, I always like to reflect on my blog about my year in motherhood. This past year was pretty hard for me because I struggled with my new demands of being a mom of two little ones, and also suffering with Postpartum Depression in the Fall. I really wanted both of my little ones to feel loved and equal and I definitely put too much pressure on myself. The PPD really shook my world because it caught me off guard. It was mainly brought on by the extreme sleep deprivation that I experienced from 6-12 months postpartum. Between the breastfeeding and the lack of sleep, there was not much time left for me. As the year comes to a close, I recall a lot of difficult and weepy times, but I'm so glad that I pushed through and have made it to the other side, thanks to the unconditional support of husband-ji and my in-law's. As Mother's Day arrived this year, I again felt so happy and proud to be a mom!

Here are some pictures from my past year in motherhood (in chronological order!):
