When pregnancy catches you off-guard, you learn for the first time in your life to make lemonade… by the gallon. My own little surprise is the inspiration for this site, where I plan to document all the ups, downs, hormone-induced breakdowns, and inevitable joys that are sure to accompany my husband and I on our journey toward parenthood and beyond. They say that taking baby steps is the best way to accomplish a daunting, overwhelming, and totally worthwhile goal…  hence the name “Baby Steps to Mom.”

I will always be a work in progress in this regard.
