My precious lil pumpkin arrived on October 2 at 7:11 pm. I will post my birth story later. For now here are some random thoughts about motherhood so far:
- I had no idea I would sweat so much! It is so gross! I wake up several times during the night to a soaked t-shirt and wet hair. My hormones are all out of wack and I guess the night sweats are part of the regulation process.
- Breastfeeding is hard! It took me and the little one some time to work together well on this one and it is still a struggle sometimes. It hurts so much at first and it just does not come naturally. To tell the complete truth, I really don't enjoy it but I am going to do it for as long as I can tolerate it.
- I am extremely thankful I don't have to do this by myself. I can't imagine being a single mother without any support, trying to take care of a newborn. D is helpful by making sure I am getting my water, changing the baby, burping the baby and driving us around as needed. We also had a week at my parent's house right out of the hospital and that was so helpful.
- I could just kiss my baby's face all day long and eat him with a spoon because he is cute! Even his cry is cute. It sounds like "mmmmm guy!".
That Time I Didn’t Interfere - I’m twelve years and three kids in on this parenting gig. I’m still adding arrows to my quiver when it comes to best practices on how to raise well adjuste...
