Today Maya is a month old!! While in some ways it feels like time has flown, in other aspects, it feels like she’s always been here, a part of our lives. Rationally I know this not to be true–but most days lately are a version of groundhog day — repeating the same cycles over and over. For someone like me, who is always on the go and can’t sit still … you’d think I’d be going nuts.
But the truth is, I wouldn’t trade this time home with her for anything. It’s been incredible — all of it. Even when I take into account how little sleep I’m getting, or the fact that my body isn’t quite mine yet.
All of it is worth it when I look into those little eyes or snuggle her close, breathe her sweet baby smell or watch her try to scoot or reach for something. Her legs are quite strong and so is her neck — she is lifting her head more and more these days and it’s amazing to watch her grow.
So today, I’d like to wish my sweet Maya a happy one-month birthday … and pat my husband and I on the back for surviving our first month of parenthood! It hasn’t been easy … especially with Rocco, who is still very much a baby himself. But it’s been the most incredible thing we’ve ever done –and I can’t wait to see how she continues to grow!
Sorry for the short post–and lack of posting last week! Kind of an insane week. Hope you’re all doing well!
PS–Sorry if this is TMI but imagine my surprise when my PERIOD began today — I thought nursing would put the kibosh on that … nope! I called my OB and he said it is normal. Lucky me!
