Reflecting 2017

And just like that, 2017 has come to an end (cue the tears). As I think to myself, and look back on the good, the bad, and the ugly, I must say this year was one to remember. Reflecting on the amazing moments, the heartaches, the loss, new memories made, what 2017 is going to bring 2018, I really don’t know how I truly feel about this year. I can’t say it was the worse year.

What I can say about 2017, is that I am thankful, grateful, blessed for all the opportunities that have come my way, for being able to live through another year.

I usually don’t make resolutions – not because I can never keep them, but because everything that happens in life happens for a reason, whether explained or not. These are either blessings or lessons. What I do like to do each year is just try to be a better me the following year, and to continue to do good in this world. I’ll be the first to say, I’m not a perfect person (but who is, am I right?) I’m far from it. I have many flaws, countless flaws, I make mistakes, but I also make good choices. And I think that’s ok.

This year, George and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. I still cannot believe that it has been over a year that we’ve been married. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun.

I got to travel to new places and revisit some old ones.

We lost our baby Kujo this year, which was probably the most difficult thing that has happened in my life. I miss him terribly. George and I were not prepared for 2017 to be the last year with him.

I celebrated one year of being my own boss. That’s kind of cool.

And the most amazing thing happened to George and I. We found out that we would be parents in 2018. That’s really really cool! We still cannot believe it and are beyond excited about the news. More baby stuff to come soon.

Lastly, I’d like to thank all my readers and internet friends for the continuous support of MelRodStyle. You guys are truly the best fam a gal can ever ask for. Thank you for supporting my blog and social media outlets. Thank you for following my journey, and I hope you continue to stay along for the ride, because 2018 is going to be a wild one!

Cheers and Happy New Year! 2018 is going to be LIT!!!

  1. Alright Mel mamma,

    Here is my best advice to you from a newish mom. Talk to the bump everyday and sing to yourself while you’re at home! I did this with my son and I do not have the most gifted voice but when he’s upset and I start singing to him it instantly changes his mood. Your baby will know your voice when they arrive in this world and that is so very comforting to know. If you have a costco card, the kirkland brand diapers are THE BEST. You seriously get the most bang for your buck. There are so many cute prints and durable wear with the HONEST company, but after a while you realize no one sees what brand your baby’s diapers are and will want to save money that way you can splurge on outfits. If there is ONE thing you take away from this post is to please invest in the book that saved my life with coming up with a sleep schedule!! I bought my copy on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Twelve-Hours-Sleep-Weeks-Step/dp/0525949593/ref=sr_1_1/145-6525612-8449142?ie=UTF8&qid=1515695409&sr=8-1&keywords=12+hours+by+12+weeks

    DON’T feel like you have to suffer multiple sleepless nights. I used this book down to a “T” and I can confidently say my son slept in his own crib for 7 hours a night starting at 3 months. I cannot stress this enough as I witnessed so many of my mommy friends struggle trying to rock their baby for hours with no luck. I can’t praise this book enough and my son still takes 1-2 naps a day and is in bed no later than 730pm every night.
    One last thing, no matter what anyone tells you about being pregnant and how to raise your child, because opinions will be coming in from EVERYWHERE, you just have to TRUST YOURSELF. Trust that you will always know what’s right for you and baby, its like mommy’s intuition and instinct combined. You will know what is best for YOU and don’t let anyone else try to tell you otherwise. Listen to your body and everything will be fine. I hope this finds you well and you continue to have a wonderful and restful pregnancy. Good luck!!
