It is a miracle that a 2-week old baby can still laugh in the sleepiest of sleeps! My little guy, who has only a few weeks left to go, has been a constant joy to me.
Well, he isn’t a constant joy to me, but he is to me, and he will continue to be. In the two weeks he has been with us, he has slept like a baby. Every single night. And I have to say that it is the most adorable thing that has ever happened to me. He always has something to say or do, but he is actually doing it right now. I just love watching him. I have become utterly entranced by the little guy.
You know, I had a baby. An infant. I had a daughter. She was only a few weeks old, but it was a very special little girl. Although she wasn’t the prettiest baby, she was the most lovable. She was playful, caring, and really funny. The best thing about her was that she had a really big personality. She was super smart, loved books, and was really good at making friends. I was so proud of her. I still am.
There are a number of things that I think make me love my daughter so much more than all the other babies I’ve ever had, but one of the top factors is the fact that she’s alive. I’m sure many of you reading this are also thinking of the same thing. When you have a child, whether it’s your first or your last, you’re really more connected to them than you are with other people.
I’m not sure when I first heard that I was a mother, but one of the first things I noticed right away when I met my daughter was how she made such a big deal about her size. I thought that was just normal, and that she was just like all the other babies I had. But I quickly discovered that I was wrong.
In motherhood, it’s no secret that we are constantly surrounded by other mothers with babies. From the moment I laid eyes on my baby, I was hooked. I didn’t want to leave the house for days after that. I was amazed at how my daughter, a little one, had so much personality. And it wasn’t just her, I was amazed by how many people in my community had babies and were so proud of them.
As a mom myself, I know that being surrounded by other mommies is not easy. It can be overwhelming when you are a single mom with a newborn. Many mothers don’t have the resources to be able to take care of it all and there is so much of a disconnect when they are trying to do that. I have to admit though that it feels better to know you have a baby in the house.
I am also incredibly proud of how well my baby was doing and how well it is doing at this point. I am very proud to have two children, and I have no doubt that I will continue to have many more, but I am also so very proud of myself. And I know what that means. I feel as though I have accomplished a lot. And there is a lot to be proud of as well. I feel like I am getting a head start by helping other new moms.
Yes indeed! After a difficult pregnancy with me and the second of three babies, I’m really grateful for all of the help that I have gotten from other new moms. The fact that I am getting such a head start in the community is a testament to the fact that I have been really, really good at not being self-centered. I have learned that I don’t have to have everyone’s best interest in mind when I am trying to help others.
The fact that I am learning that I am no longer the only one that I have to look out for is just an awesome feeling. I have learned that I am not the only one who has to be worried about the welfare of my babies. I have learned that I dont have to be the only one who is concerned with what someone else is doing in my space.
