WOW. Motherhood. It's changed me, y'all. From the moment this little angel entered this world, I instantly felt the need to care for and protect her. The past 6 weeks have been truly remarkable. Sure, there's been lots of dirty diapers, spit-up tees, little to no sleep.. but the pure joy I feel when I have this little angel in my arms in unlike anything I've ever experienced. It's the greatest feeling that I hope every woman gets to experience in their lifetime. I'm actually tearing up writing this. So, for all you soon-to-be mama's and those where Motherhood is no where in sight, you are in for the sweetest love you'll ever experience. It is 1 million percent worth it and your heart will melt every time your baby looks you in your eyes. Guaranteed.
As I head in for my 6 week follow-up appointment tomorrow, I can't help but reflect on all that God has blessed me with this past year. I am so thankful to have had a healthy and happy pregnancy (which seems like ages ago now), a Husband who supported and stood by my side every step of the way (literally during the labor and delivery lol..more on that in a separate post), loving friends and family who spoiled baby girl before she even got here, a house to call home with her very own nursery for me to decorate (baby nursery tour coming soon!) and most importantly, a healthy baby girl. The first 6 weeks with Olivia have been the best of my life. I am beyond proud to be a MAMA and as crazy as this sounds, I can't wait to have more babies! But, not just yet. I am basking in this moment of pure bliss with my Hubby and baby girl.
So, yea I know I'm only 6 weeks in but Motherhood is the ONLY hood I wanna be in.
