I never; I always

Standard

I was NEVER the type of person who wanted a career. I don’t like working for others, I only have done it to survive. Being married to Daddy I have had the luxury to choose to work or not. I have at times to support my crafting, but I have never worked (while married) because I needed to.

I ALWAYS have wanted to be a Mother. I wanted to grow up and be a stay at home mom. Well, C1 is now 2 weeks old and I have my dream job; Mom! I have to say that I LOVE being a Mom. Cuddling with C1 (at all hours of the day and night); gazing into his eyes; holding him, watching him sleep (yes, he does do that from time to time). I absolutely LOVE being a Mom.

I NEVER thought that nursing would be SO difficult. Even at 2 weeks old, I still struggle with it. So much time, and so many questions.

I ALWAYS knew that Daddy would be a great Father. Daddy has exceeded my expectations in his duties as a Dad. He has taken such good care of me and of C1. With our company (helpers) still a week from getting here; Daddy has been my rock and my ultra support so I can focus on sleep and nursing C1.

My body was made to be pregnant; and I was made to be a Mom. Here’s to the beginning of Motherhood.

  1. I love this post…it's exactly how I feel. Hang in there with breastfeeding. I tried for about 6 weeks, but my milk supply just wasn't what it needed to be I and ended up just bottle feeding her. It's a difficult time, but I now you'll get through it. 🙂

  2. hang in there. I always thought breastfeeding would be the most natural and easy thing to do. Boy was I wrong. It took Henry and me 5 months to finally get it. Lots of pumping, lots of frustration, lots of feelings of failure. We got it, so can you. Be kind to yourself, be willing to accept help. Enjoy this time with your new son and your husband. It really does go by so fast.

  3. What a beautiful baby! I hear you on the nursing part, but if you stick with it, there will be a point where you think "This is so easy!" Then you won't want to stop. 🙂

  4. Yes! We've been sick off and on, and I feel bad I haven't even brought you dinner yet!!! He is just a doll! I'm so glad that things are going well! Nursing is a lot harder then you think. I remember feeling that same way after I had my first. I felt like no one had even mentioned that that would be difficult. I only heard the horror stories of birthing. Nursing was a nightmare for me the first couple of months. After that it seemed to finally get easier and I loved it! But, hang in there! It'll get easier. However, don't feel bad if you aren't one that loves it. It isn't worth doing if it causes too much anxiety. I've had friends that told me that they actually started to love their baby the moment they stopped nursing. To each his own! Best of luck!

  5. I'm glad that you are enjoying your dream. Have you looked into breastfeeding support groups? I know there are a bunch here in TX to help with new mom's who are having a tough time. Good luck with everything.

  6. Oh Jenny! He's here and beautiful! I'm so glad I took a look at your blog. I had no idea he was coming so soon. I LOVE the name Charlie. I'm so happy that you're so happy as a Mom. It really is quite dreamy. Nursing is hard thing, but just stick with it (if you want) and it will get easier – promise. I just finished nursing #2 after a year! Ahhhh, so nice! Keep updating. Love you
