I cannot believe we’ve been living life with this handsome sonuvagun for the past 2 months. Where does the time go?
I can’t pretend that the past two months have been easy. Far from it. Ever had a kid? It tests your will. It calls into question your sense of adequacy. One human being entirely dependent on another. It’s blow-your-mind BIG.
And you rise to the occasion.
Because look at that.
You made that.
There are parts about this journey that nobody tells you about… likely an evolutionary thing, to ensure the human race keeps reproducing.
Breastfeeding is almost as big a sacrifice and takes nearly the same physical toll as 40 weeks of pregnancy.
Say goodbye to a solid night’s sleep.
You and your husband can’t be held accountable for what’s said in the middle of the night when the baby is crying.
But are you freakin’ kidding me?
My body will never be the same, but I am the sole source of sustenance for the most adorable human being on the planet.
I may not sleep more than 5 hours straight for the next 18 years. But I get to see this face all day, every day, and most of the night too. And that’s good.
And yes, sleep deprivation might cause us to be a little short with each other from time to time.
I didn’t wake up at the sound of Anson’s cries one night, so my husband brought him into the room and woke me with this gem:
“Remember this little guy?”
BUT the love I feel for this man who is raising this precious human with me? That’s beyond words.
Know what else is beyond words? The feeling I get looking at this face.
There just aren’t words for that.
