Baby Brooklyn

Self-love 1.7.2012

Ten minutes to reflect in the morning before you start your day is probably that smartest thing I could ever do! This weekend I am in Gainesville, VA visiting one of my best friends Jessica for the weekend! We have just woken up, the sun is bright, the smell of pork is in the air…ewww but delicious at the same time. We both know it’s going to be a beautiful day!

Why you might ask? Because Jessica’s sister Arlene is bringing home a BABY! Brooklyn Diana Mains was born January 3, 2012 7lbs 11oz. and 21 inches! She is so long! Baby proofing the house and putting up signs that say “It’s a girl’ are definitely chores of the morning because she will literally arrive at any moment now. The exciting part is watching a new life look out into the new world! I can only imagine what baby Brooklyn is thinking when she leaves the hospital:

Baby thoughts: I’m hungry. Who is this lady? It’s too bright, and what’s that smell! Somebody get me outta here!!!!!!!!!

The joy of new life, is a joy that I would like to experience 10-15 years from now. Having a child is the most precious thing in the world and I can’t mess that up! From the moment that child leaves you, she is yours to protect, feed, defend and most importantly love. I am so happy and excited for Arlene, baby Brooklyn and family! So now I’m going to get up and prepare because a baby is coming!

About jaelisawesome

I am currently a senior at Randolph College, founded as Randolph-Macon Woman's College in 1891, majoring in Political Science: International Relations with minors in Spanish and Studio Art. Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia I believe that I have significant contributions to make to the world of diplomacy and US foreign policy. As Student Government President I am the liaison between the students and the faculty and administration, as well as the student representative to the Board of Trustees. I also serve as the Co-President of an all female a cappella group Songshine. I am known for being involved in any and every aspect at school. Some of my passions include playing on the volleyball and tennis teams, singing in almost every group at my school, performing in my very first musical Spring Awakening in the theatre department to taking orders as a barista at the schools’ coffee shop Main Grounds. After I graduate in May 2012, I aspire to attend the Master of Arts in Political Science with a concentration in European Union Policy Studies one-year, 33-credit graduate program. The intensive, residential program is based wholly in Florence, Italy and results in an MA degree in Political Science from James Madison University. My goal is to spread the Love Warrior Community, meaning more people actively bringing self-love into their lives and into the lives of others, more people accepting and loving themselves as they are and more people empowered to follow their passions and share them with the world. The Love Warrior Community is as strong as those involved. By joining the Love Warrior Community, I have the opportunity to create my own self-love practice, bringing more love into my life and the lives of those around me. I will be able to influence a greater number of people and help them to see their value and worth beyond their bodies.

  1. How exciting to have a new baby come into your life!
    I know babies are born every day, but they are each unique individual miracles!
    Babies teach me about self-love on so many different levels.
    They are so intune with their emotions, they cry when they are hungry and stop eating when they’re satisified. They let us know when they are tired, want attention, or to be held without words. The list can go on and on about what we can learn from babies. I’ll be interested to hear more about what you learn from baby Brooklyn!
