Thoughts on transitioning from pregnancy to motherhood

I may have my body back but I've traded it for my mind.

Who knew this kid could get so much bigger in 3 weeks?!

I have never loved this deeply. Not even my husband who I love with all my heart. It feels like I need to explode, implode, get quiet and still, shout with joy from the highest of places, laugh and cry...all at once. It's too big to take in some days.

A small baby asleep on my chest is reason enough to pause life for an hour (or 3).

That whole third paragraph sums up parenting so well! We run the gamit (how do you spell that?) of emotions as moms.

Thanks for your encouragement and prayers on my blog. Even if you didn't have advice, your encouragement helped a lot! Some days I feel like I know what I'm doing as a parent and other days I think I stink. Sigh. But, today was a MUCH better day and I feel like I will survive now. :-)
