About Melissa

Sharon Ross Photography

I’m a first-time mom with a beautiful baby girl and a wonderful husband. I work full time and have been pumping since my daughter was four weeks old.

I don’t have a parenting “plan”. I’m just trying to get through each day on four hours of sleep. My influences are my older sister, my mom, Lorelai Gilmore, and Pam Beesly.

Being a new mom can feel very isolating. There’s so much uncertainty, and so little sleep! Connecting with another mom who has been through the same struggle can make  a huge difference in adjusting to life with a baby. When you’re feeling completely overwhelmed, there’s nothing better than to read another mom’s story and think “Yes! That is me completely!” I hope my journey can touch someone else the same way.
