I wanted to share with you what some other bloggers are doing:
What the Baby Books Don't Tell you."
I think the after part of birth is very mysterious. We had wonderful midwives and has a beautiful birth experience (you can read it here) They really did a great job ensuring that we understood all about labor.
The moments after birth, I was so in love with everyone, but I definitely didn't want to have another baby at that moment. There is so much going on and even still I struggle with wanting another baby because I love Lilly so much and it's hard to think that I will love another just as much.
The love that baby books describe is unlike what I thought it would be. I imagined it to be the same love that I have for Steven, but it is so different. Every day I fall more in love with this little being that was created inside me.
I didn't realize how much Momma Bear I would have. I miss her if she is not in my arms constantly. I hate to leave the room without her. I am so protective of her. I sometimes have to ask for her back after others have been holding her.
The feeling of motherhood is different for everyone, but I can't complain. I was blessed with a gift that not every woman can have. I truly treasure it and do not take it for granted. I know that its hard, messy, and full of worry, but none compares to the amount of love that I have fore her.
