No one can actually tell you what it is like to be a Mama. There aren’t words. If I had to choose a few words to describe it I’d say motherhood is the most rewarding, challenging, exciting, stressful, happiest, scariest experience life has to offer! And I only know what it is like to be a Mama to a newborn. Ohhh I’m SO excited to see what life has in store as this little boy grows and develops.
Joshua will be 6 weeks old this Thursday. I can’t believe it’s already been almost 6 weeks since I delivered. I have my 6 week doctor’s appointment with Dr. Urquhart on Wednesday and then I can officially kiss my postpartum period goodbye (Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!) Crazy how fast it has gone.
But even when time seems to be going by so quickly I still find time to slow down and just take this little boy in. Everyday I spend a fairly good amount of time just staring at him. Whether he’s awake or asleep I just watch him. And take photo after photo. It’s my new daily dose of entertainment. Things that I used to need for stimulation just don’t apply anymore. Looking at this little boy is all I need. ❤
He has me wrapped around his finger and he knows it.
