It’s been a while since I took an interview and today a journalist asked me a round of questions, the same kind of questions I was asked just a few months ago when we first became “viral.” Even though I’ve answered the same questions over and over again, I don’t think I’ll ever be fully prepared to answer questions like, “How will Joey react when she sees all of this as a teenager?” or “What message do you want to tell the parents of the world?” I mean, how do you really answer that? For me, I’m still trying to figure out how to time Joey for feedings and what to dress her up in when it’s cold out, let alone figure out a definitive message to “TELL THE WORLD.” It’s definitely been difficult at times processing all of the attention whilst in the middle of transitioning into motherhood. Joey was only 4 months old when our photos became viral and I had barely any time to sit down and realize what really happened to us. But when I reflect back I am so thankful for the opportunity to be able to connect with so many people. The daily DMs and emails I receive from our loving fans (so weird to say we have “fans”) have been like precious gems to me. I feel so honored to be in a place where I can somehow bless strangers (new friends!) from all parts of the world. Hearing personal stories of how our silly photos and videos have touched their lives will never ever get old for us. I’m in no way some kind of “baby-whisperer” like I’ve heard some people mistakenly label me as but I’d like to be someone who is available and open to sharing my experiences with motherhood.
I’m still very new at the blogging thing but I have a lot of cool posts coming up so stay tuned. Here are some photos of Joey this afternoon after her nap. Her expressions these days kill me!
