Can I take a moment to be effusive about how much I love this little girl and how much I love being her mama? I didn’t realize how motherhood can be so overwhelmingly wonderful! Motherhood is good for my little heart, I tell you, even with the whole preeclampsia scare. I am just so happy that this little girl exists and never mind that she is a lot of hard work when I stop to think about it, which I don’t really (and don’t really have time for) and it has become natural to me to go through all the rough parts, such as getting less sleep, less time for myself, less money to spend on myself, yet she has brought so much more into my life! I can’t sum it all up in words. To the future moms out there, no one can prepare you of how you will feel about your little one. No one can. Your baby becomes your universe and that is how it should be!
Sometimes, I catch myself staring at my little girl and think, “Where did you come from? You are so perfect!” I have religious beliefs of where she comes from but it’s still such a miracle and marvel to think I have created a life and that that this little soul now exists and I had something to do with her creation. It’s kind of like a magic trick, like she was just pulled out of a hat and I have no idea how it was done or I just can’t fathom it, so I am just in awe to this day!
And another thing, this little girl has become my kryptonite. Her smiles and giggles, they melt me! And her cries, when she wants something, they have to be heeded and I can’t just ignore them because those sad faces she makes breaks my heart and I would do anything to make those tears go away. And when she gives me her little baby hugs, feels like heaven! And there is something about a baby’s neediness that makes a momma feel so special, you know?
How about you other moms out there? Did you guys feel the same way? I’d like to know your feelings on being a mom for the first time.
