Life with Baby

February 29, 2016

I promise that one of these days I will get back to my normal outfit posts and  thrifty tips, but as of right now my life is revolving around my new baby.  It has been kind of a crazy couple of weeks at home with our little guy.  Time feels like it's flying by, but I also feel like things are standing still.

It's such a weird feeling when you bring a new baby home.  I know that people have told me that the first few weeks with a newborn are hard, but I think I just chose to ignore them.  I think the most challenging thing for me has been trying to recover from my c-section, while caring for Jack.  Luckily, I've had a lot of help.  I feel better than I did a week ago and I'm starting to feel more and more like myself each day, but I'm not perfect yet.

It definitely feels weird not being pregnant anymore.  As much as I hated being pregnant, I miss it, if that makes any sense at all.  I hated how uncomfortable I felt and how huge I was, but I miss having my baby with me all the time and feeling him move around.  It's a weird feeling actually holding him in my arms, knowing that he used to be inside me. 

Even though having a newborn has some challenges with the lack of sleep, the poopy diapers, breastfeeding and all the other things that come with having a new baby, it's still one of the most wonderful feelings that I've ever had.  I'm over whelmed with happiness when I look at Jack.  I can't believe that I'm his mom and I grew him for 9 months.  It's pretty amazing.  I love this newborn stage, but I look forward to watching him grow and getting to know him more everyday. 

Here are a few pictures of my little angle.

  1. Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy Jack. Your c-section recovery will be helped by your good physical well being. You mind yourself, accept help when it's offered and most importantly, ask for help when you need it. I have three boys and had three c-sections, they are tough going but in a few weeks you'll be out doing short walks proudly showing baby Jack his new surroundings.
