mommyhood {thoughts on the first few months}

I've recently fallen in love with Carissa at JL Designs.  Her sweet little boy just turned one in November.  I couldn't help but share an excerpt from her blogpost on her recap of the first year with Decker.  She hit it right on the nail head. 

i am not gonna lie...the first couple months of mommy hood were really hard at times...it wasn't all sunshine and smiles and infatuation with my new little one...there were some days i just wanted to pull the covers back over my head in the morning and hide from him for the rest of the day...i am not ashamed to admit this because i know that this is something all new mommies go through and experience no matter what it may seem like on the outside...it doesn't make me a bad mom...it makes me REAL...
parenthood is hard...no one can prepare you for the complete overhaul your life goes through...but it does get easier and DANG does it get better...even though i haven't forgotten the fatigue, the tears, the frustration and sometimes physical pain - they aren't what i remember vividly...


 As Anna grows and we get closer to the year mark I too can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Gone are the sleepless nights, the postpartum anxiety, the rush of fear that you are doing every thing wrong.  I didn't have that full blown, all encompassing, take my breath away, mommy love right off the bat like a lot of moms.  Anna and I had to get to know each other.  And now, sometimes I'll whip out my camera and I'll get one of these.  My heart melts...
