Being a Mom is so underrated! I know to other Moms that may sound silly, but I totally think it is. Before I had Annabelle I had no idea the kind of love and just plain obsession I’d have for another human being. You think you love your husband, dog, cat, or family and then you have a baby and they are all you think about 24/7. Even though caring for a newborn has its ups and downs (aka navigating breastfeeding, sleepless nights, etc.), for the most part it’s pure bliss. This is one of the happiest times in my life and I wanted to celebrate it by sharing ten things I love most about being a Mom these past three months…
When she looks up at me after a feed with a half grin.
When I wake up next to her everyday with a huge smile on her face kicking away.
When we “talk” back to each other aka she says coo and I say coo.
When she falls asleep chest down on her Daddy.
Smelling her head right after a bath.
The look on Doug’s face when he sees her after a long day at work.
Nighttime cuddles with the three of us.
When she falls asleep on the boppie with limp arms.
Her sad frowny face when she starts getting upset.
When she laughs in her sleep.
