Week One: New Mommy

AJ is one week old today!☺️ I’ve officially been a mommy for 7 days. In true fashion of myself…lemme tell y’all about it!😂

First of all…I am TIED (that’s tired for my proper readers)😂

I had him via c-section and that experience is traumatic ok? I don’t care what anyone else says. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I have to care for him 24-7…..whew….take me back to my babysitting days. It was SO temporary. Lol!🤦🏻‍♀️

Don’t even get me started on breastfeeding!!!😤😤

I am the most emotionally exhausted I’ve been in my entire life. 🤦🏻‍♀️Who knew you could cry so many tears in a single 24 hour period?!?! 😱 AND, so many different tears?? One minute they are happy, then proud, then amazed, then tired, then feeling like “what have I signed up for”, then “I love my husband so much”, then “I love my son so much” then God knows what! I literally feel insane! 😫😫

My husband has been a trooper.😊 I honestly have a new found respect and wonder for single moms. How do y’all do it? How? Y’all so strong! I’ve cried in my husband’s arms so much you’d think I’m the newborn!😀 Y’all really are amazing!!

My pediatrician started our conversation reading my fertility and child loss history then preceded to state “Wow, you went through a lot to get him here. Thank God he is here”! 😭😭When I tell y’all I almost went into a baptist fit!!!💃🏻💃🏻 (ask your churchy friends what that is, lol!) He just didnt know what he said to me! LOL!

Overall, motherhood is NO punk.🙅🏻‍♀️ She’s actually a bully in my opinion! 😂😂 But I am so thrilled to have my son even when I’m overwhelmed (which is quite often at this point, lol!)

I honestly did not realize how strong women truly are until this phase of my life. We are EVERYTHING! 💪🏼💁🏻‍♀️💅🏼

Until the next time..
