I can’t believe my baby boy is already one month old! It seems like just yesterday that he was born (read/watch his birth story here) and he’s already trying to grow up on us.
I’m a typical first time mom – I take a billion photos and videos of him a day, I can’t sleep at night without touching him to make sure he’s breathing and I’m trying my hardest to adjust to the new responsibilities I have. But this post isn’t about me, (I’ll be sharing some postpartum updates soon) it’s all about Marley!
Yesterday was my first official Mother’s Day and it was full of love and awesomeness!
I’d been talking about Mother’s Day for about two weeks straight because I was so excited to finally be able to partake in the holiday as an honoree and not just someone who was doing the honoring. Facebook helped me get even more excited after seeing everyone uploading photos with their moms, grandmothers and children. My news feed was so beautiful.
After over 41 weeks of anticipation, the love of our lives arrived on April 9, 2017. Baby Marley Elijah has been the joy of our world since his arrival and today I’m sharing his birth story!
I’ve included a YouTube video if you’d rather watch than read but I’m going to try my best to recap the whole process from the beginning.
Wow, I’m really a mom… Not a pregnant and imagining what life will be like mom, but a diaper-changing, breastfeeding and my every other thought about my child kind of mom. Whew!
My son, Marley Elijah, made 1 week old yesterday and it’s still surreal that we have a little baby to take care of for the rest of our lives. On one hand it’s scary as scary can get and on the other, it’s magical. Before becoming a mother, I had ideas about how motherhood would actually feel but nothing could prepare me for the feeling itself. Even as I try to find the words, it’s difficult because so many come to mind.
I know, this video is super old…but I still wanted to share some footage of our baby shower with you all.
If you don’t already know, I’ve given birth to our son (my labor and delivery story is coming soon) and he has stolen our hearts and somehow managed to make all of the people who’ve visited us fall in love with him. So that’s how old this video is.
But better late than never, right?
