Sitting here with a sleeping baby on my lap and enjoying every moment of it! We are just over 6 weeks now and finally seeing the light at the end of the newborn tunnel.
As much as I wanted this, as hard as I worked to get it, I was surprised to spend the first few weeks crying every day. A bad case of baby blues mixed with no sleep and a wide awake screaming baby just really beat me down emotionally. We had our good moments and I’ve been crazy in love with our little guy since day 1, but we were not prepared for the insanity of being first time parents. All those classes did not help! I feel like they purposefully neglected to mention how tough it is because they don’t want to scare the crap out of everyone.
While we still have some trying moments, we are learning and getting better. I haven’t cried in days! I can’t say the same for the baby, lol.
