It has truly been a rough ride. At first, I assumed it was like this for everyone, and all new Mommies feel the way I have felt, but after talking with others, I have learned that is not necessarily true.
Eventually, I want to share my story. This is, by far, the hardest thing I have ever done. I am so thankful to have supportive friends and family. Even a simple “How are you feeling?” can mean so much during the tough times, you know? I am lucky to have such a wonderful doctor, too. I have become very close to her these past few months and called her multiple times in the middle of the night. Finally, nearly four months later, I feel like a Mommy, and I am enjoying my time with Jacyn and our new family.
Being a new Mommy has definitely opened my eyes. I often look back, and I wish I would have done more for friends who were becoming new Mommies, but I just did not realize what a challenging journey it could be. I look to the future, and I know that I want to be there for all of the ladies in my life who are becoming new Mommies themselves. I truly have a new, special place in my heart for all new Mommies, and I will always be their cheerleader!
For now, I think I will keep it light, and share some of the crafts Jacyn and I have been working on. Some are for Spring, others for Easter and Baptism, and others are just because.
We have been busy! With the weather changing, though, I am looking forward to spending more time outside with Jacyn, hopefully! We will certainly be strolling today!
Enjoy the day!
