District Mom is about one new mom’s journey into motherhood. That new mother is me, Merrill.

My journey officially began February 5, 2018 at 2:58 pm. That was the moment sweet Hattie Lane (also to be referred to as District Baby) greeted me for the first time as her own person, not just as a part of me. We have had a wild ride in just four short months, and I know there is more around the corner.

Every day I find myself typing into Google “My baby…” looking for other moms’ experiences. “My baby won’t take a bottle,” “My baby won’t stop crying,” “My baby’s poop is green” you name it, I’ve searched it. My favorite results are always the real experiences from other moms, so that is what has led me here. I hope my experiences can help some of you.

I look forward to sharing this ride with you… the good, the bad, and the ugly. I also want to hear your feedback, so please don’t hesitate to reach out! We’re on this journey together.
