First Coffee Date

Hello friends!  
Wow, that's a big picture of my tired, un-made-up face!
I've been a long-time creeper of Courtney's blog Journey of a Dreamer for over a year now and I'd always loved when she had coffee date posts, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and have one with you considering my recent obsession with iced coffee.  I never even drank coffee that much pre-pregnancy, but I think it was the whole "you want what you can't have" thing that turned it around.

So I'm going to go ahead and grab my International Delight pre-made iced coffee (my fridge currently has all three flavours that Walmart was carrying).  Today I'm going to go with the caramel macchiato because it's Friday and I'm fancy like that.  I've filled my cup with an insane amount of ice because that's why it's called iced coffee and also I'm trying to make sure I don't drink too much since I'm breastfeeding the Little Miss.

If we were having coffee together today, I'd tell you that I can't believe the Little Miss is two days shy of four weeks.  I'd legit marvel (and can't believe I actually used that word but can't think of another one that better describes what I'm feeling) at the fact that four weeks ago, she was just this stranger that had grown in my belly from pretty much nothing and now she's a real PERSON with a personality and temperament and everything.  At the same time, I'd have to tell you that on top of this, I'm marvelling at the four week mark because I can't believe I've made it this far.  I'm a MOM.

On that note, if we were having coffee today, I'd totally pull a mom move and show you a picture of her:
Or you know...like, seven...
I'd hesitantly tell you that besides all those regular clich├ęd things that new parents always spout - how rewarding it is, how worth it, how my world changed for the better, etc. which don't get me wrong, is all true - sometimes I have a hard time connecting with it all over the fact that every day I'm just so scared of what every day will bring.  Which I guess is another regular thing new parents feel, so I'm with the masses. I'd mention that I feel like one big contradiction.  I'll catch myself feeling bored with the monotony of my daily routine of feeding and changing and then feeling horrified that I find myself bored and then praying something bad doesn't happen so I find out what it's like when something happens outside of the routine.

I'll ask you if my rambling is making any sense at all and if perhaps you know someone who'll prescribe me some Xanax.  It will mostly be in a joking fashion unless you actually know someone and I can get some...

If we were having coffee (mine would be gone by now because I can't sip iced coffee, it's more like greedy gulping because it's so good) I'd just wish that winter would be over and that the Little Miss has started her vaccinations so I wouldn't be so paranoid all the time.  I'd feel more comfortable venturing out in public with her and without the threat of more impending snow, we'd be able to go out and about more.  I'd tell you that from loving hanging out all day at home pre-pregnancy, now that it's not so much of a choice anymore, I've definitely got cabin fever. I want to go OUTSIDE!

If we were having coffee today, I'd apologize for hogging most of the conversation and tell you it's your turn. If we were having coffee today, what would you be drinking and what would you tell me?  Since it's that much loved/hated day that is Valentine's Day, do you have any plans for today/tonight/this weekend?
