New Mommy….Week 28

Who knew a onesie could make you cry?!?!

I finally cleaned out AJ’s closer. He’ll be 7 months in 2 weeks….so I had to get rid of all his newborn-3 month clothes.πŸ™ƒ Then I picked up this onesie. I cried. I can’t believe my baby was that small at one point. Although he wasn’t a “small” baby. I had him at 38 weeks, he was 8 pounds, 13 ounces. 😳 I got so emotional thinking about his short time here.

And it’s worst because he had his first fall off my bed this week. Just thinking about his milestones have me in my feelings.😒 Last night he crawled backwards. He’s staring to form his mouth to say the dreaded “Da Da”.🀣🀣 He’s drinking from a cup. He’s holding food in his hand. My baby is no longer my helpless newborn.😊

I miss those days. Although I suffered postpartum depression; I miss the early days. They were hard but rewarding. We made it!❀️

Now, πŸ—£I’m still breastfeeding! It’s no longer hard or awkward; other than his sudden infatuation with pinching my nips.πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’m so proud of us. I didn’t have a lot of breastfeeding knowledge. I wanted to quit early on. But I’m so glad I didn’t! Even now, some people are encouraging me to get him off the boob; I curve all those comments. My baby will self wean. I’ll put no demands on him. Not with this.😌

I’ve also been a SAHM (stay at home mom) for 7 weeks now. It’s still scary and I still love it. Shortly, once I focus and pull things in: I’ll be a mompreneur. So excited!😍 You’ll year more soon!

Until the next time….

🚨New Mommy…Week 26

My baby turned 6 months this week!!😊😊

I’m so excited and terrified at the same time! Watching him gain independence causes me to smile and be proud while simultaneously fast forwarding to the days he won’t need me as much.😒 Such oxymoronic feelings!! I’m sure moms understand!

AJ is full of life! He tries everything repeatedly, only allowing frustration to set in for seconds.😒 It’s so encouraging, oh to be a child again! I pray I never do anything to inhibit his imagination, deter his determination or discourage his effort.❀️ He reminds me everyday to keep dreaming! Keep trying! He has no idea how he motivates me.

6 months postpartum feels….better.πŸ™ƒ I am certainly in a much more calm state of mind than previously. I cry much less. When I do, the tears are typically of pride and gratefulness. I never knew my heart could be so full. My journey yo motherhood was long, hard and heartbreaking. But it was all worth it.😍

Now, the hard part about 6 months postpartum?!?! My body!!😫😫😫 Initially I made amazing progress. Lately, I’ve hit a roadblock! I don’t like my body. I can’t figure out my “mom style”😳 I’m no longer comfortable wearing certain things. It’s odd. I’ll get through it, I’m sure!πŸ’™

I’m also dealing with becoming a stay at home mom. It’s truly and adjustment. Whew! I’ll talk about it more next time! Don’t wanna bore you! πŸ˜‰πŸ€£πŸ€£

Until the next time…
