This picture makes me laugh a lot. It's like I am a real life mom or something. I'll look like this for the next ten years or so. Baby in one arm, diaper bag in the other. Also, my hair is a gazillion inches long.
I lost all of my baby weight in about 2 weeks from when I had Mr. Apollo. Not that that is normal or anything. And obviously my body isn't exactly the same as it was 9 months ago. And it's not like I was skinny before or anything, but I am feeling good! I'm glad that I didn't have a rough recovery. A few days after Apollo was born, I took him to the pediatrician, and the woman next to me had to sit on one of those inflatable doughnuts. Yikes. So glad I didn't have to deal with that.
The first two weeks after I had Apollo I had the major baby blues. I won't go into it too much, but I pretty much cried everyday about the smallest things. I felt like Aaron and I had no time together, it was always separate with baby or together with the baby. My mom told me she felt this way when she had me, and I always thought it sounded so... silly (sorry mom), like DUH having a baby is going to change your relationship right? But now I completely understand that feeling now. But now it just feels right having a little baby in our family and we still have time to just be Bonnie and Aaron. I think a major factor contributing to the blues was that Breast feeding hurt, took forever and still I have no idea if my baby is getting enough to eat which is really stressful. But it all got better.
I do love having a newborn. It's so much fun to be a mom, even though sometimes feel like I am just waiting and waiting for him to stop crying/to just go to sleep. My favorite times of the day are when he is slowly drifting off to sleep. Is that terrible of me?
Yesterday was awesome. It was almost as if he just realized who I am all of a sudden. He looked up at me and said "Ah!" and gave me a big toothless grin.
