Our beautiful baby girl is now a month old!
I can’t believe how fast time is going, we can already see her changing and growing.
I never imagined what life with a newborn would actually be like – people told me all throughout my pregnancy that it will be life changing and hard, but I never realised just quite how much until after we had our little girl.
The past few weeks have been a rollercoaster of emotions – with adjusting to life with a newborn, trying to recover from the birth myself, as well as being completely and utterly in love (and a bit obsessed) with our little girl.
It’s been hard – really hard. Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had and dealing with fears you never knew even existed. There were a few times where I’ve had a cry to myself with feeling so overwhelmed – and that’s completely normal. No one can prepare you for what’s to come once you have your own baby, no ones an expert and we’re all learning as we go. But the one thing I do know for sure is that it’s all so worth it. I couldn’t imagine life without our little girl, and I’m not sure how we lived before without her. I may not get much time alone with my husband, or get to spend time doing my hair and make-up, but I wouldn’t have it any other way, and I can’t wait for all the things we’ll do together as a family in the upcoming years.
This first month has been eye-opening, but it’s been the best. Bring on month two!
