Good morning everyone! Long time no blog, right?
I mean, I figure giving birth to and learning how to take care of this little guy is a good enough reason though 🙂
I’m hoping to write up my birth story over the course of the next day or so (for you guys and for me…mommy brain is no joke!) but for now we are spending every moment we can with our little guy, learning how to change a diaper (or 70 poopy ones), figuring out breastfeeding, cooing and talking to him, and laughing at the adorable and goofy faces he makes. Oh, and trying to fit sleep in there too.
Side note: for anyone who’s expecting, when people say “sleep when the baby sleeps”…they mean it!
Honestly going into motherhood I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew that I loved Weston more than I could ever imagine, but I didn’t realize that my heart would burst when I hear him squeaking and grunting and even tooting. I didn’t know that my heart would completely melt into oblivion when I look down at his little open eyes while he’s feeding and hear his little contented sighs. I didn’t think that I would be getting as little sleep as I am, or that I wouldn’t be able to take the time to write out all of my feelings and emotions. I didn’t know that I would feel so much love for someone that I just met 4 days ago…
And yet here I am, a total mess and completely in love with my son and even more in love with my incredible husband than I ever thought possible. Seeing Nate with our little guy brings the happiest of tears to my eyes and makes my stomach do flip-flops. He’s amazing with him and knowing that we made this little man together is almost more than I can stand.
So y’all? Thank you so much, so VERY VERY much, for all of your thoughts, prayers, congratulations, well-wishes, and love. We are so excited about our little family and absolutely cannot wait to continue to share with you…but for now? I’m going to go snuggle with my boys 🙂
