I Am 22 And Have A 7 Month Old Daughter

My entire life all i ever wanted to be was mother. I grew up watching Gilmore girls and swore that was going to be me and my daughter (but with a husband).  I finally met the one for me in college my sophomore year and now we have a 7 month old daughter. We are the happiest family in the ENTIRE world and I wouldn't change a thing.

I think the most frustrating thing about being young and having a family is the way other people judge you and treat you like you aren't good enough to love them when you are just as loving as they are! They just haven't spent the time getting to know you enough to take that judgement away. It doesn't help that i look like I am sixteen because i am 4'11 and 90 pounds and my husband is 6'2 and 150+ pounds. People look at me like I am way too young, or like Emma was an accident and I don't know how to be a mother or might not even want to be a mother and that is COMPLETELY WRONG! Emma was 100% planned and 100% the sunshine of my life!


The other frustrating thing is we moved here while I was pregnant and I haven't been able to find that group of friends that picks me up and keeps me motivated or even just gives me something to laugh about now and then. Luckily Brian is a wonderful friend, husband, and father most of the time I just enjoy spending at home with him and Emma, but sometimes I need that girl time to get away and giggle and I don't know.. have someone that says "Oh yeah! Me too!!" I know friendships take a while to build and I've never had problems making friends before so I just need a little patience and to put myself out there, I think I've just had so much me time while I was pregnant and with Emma so young that I've kind of forgotten some key points to getting back out there..
