This picture was taken just moments before we brought baby home from the hospital, I can't believe it's been a week since! The first two days were the most difficult, and I had many meltdowns and tears. One night I cried for 4 hours straight, as in bawling nonstop, and I had super puffy eyes(and that's when we had the most visitors too, so attractive!) and massive headache for 2 days straight. One of my neighbors texted me to ask how I was doing and I replied to her that I had forgotten about how difficult the recovery process was and she replied back, "Isn't it such a blessing from God that we forget after each child so that we'll keep having more children?" And I replied back to her, "That's great you look at it that way but right now I look at it as a dirty trick by God!"
After that one night of many tears however, things have been pretty great. I'm recovering really fast and the love I have for this baby of mine is so overwhelmingly incredible, it engulfs every part of me. Gosh, having a newborn is so hard but how I love having a newborn! Their purity, innocence and strong spirit just exudes out of them and you can't help but be in awe and stare for hours and be completely entertained at watching the baby do nothing. I want the time to slow down. But until I figure out how, I will enjoy every moment of this precious stage, and let God play his trick on me.
