IT BREAKS Mamas heart!
♡This was taken the other night, in a vulnerable spot. I only took this because it meant so much to me.
♡But I want to share the rawness of this too. My baby was teething terribly, and we just held each other while I sang to her “you are my sunshine,” a song I’ve been singing since I was pregnant with her. I put her to bed, then she wanted to be up snuggled up with mama, she snuggled for a bit and her daddy woke me, out our daughter to bed.
♡ These nights with teething have been rough but I love everything about being a mama, the early mornings, late nights, and even the occasional spit up after changing my clothes twice already because I didn’t like the outfit anyway.
♡And my husband is such a good father to our baby girl, there are days and night where he know I’m plumb exhausted and he takes care of me in every way.
♡ It’s incredible how we’ve grown as a family.
♡ Days/ nights as a mama I go from being PROUD, to feeling sad.
♡I’m so proud of my baby for all of her accomplishments, but I’m sad because it’s gone by SO QUICKLY, she’s growing and it’s my job as a mama to give her everything she needs to learn and grow!
♡ 1 month, 2 months, 3 months and SUDDENLY we are 10 MONTHS OLD. I’ve learned so much about you all while loving you, and you’ve also shown me how I should love myself and be my best self for you!
♡ Everyday I put her in my arms at some point I say to her “you are ENOUGH, you are INCREDIBLE, you are wonderful, brave, smart and YOU ARE CAPABLE of anything.” —— it’s important to me to instill confidence and build her up with positive words — something I wasn’t. (I don’t recall) she deserves the world and Mama and daddy are gonna show her.
♡♡♡ Daily I remind myself I’ll make mistakes but I can fix them.
I remind myself that personal development is very important and I practice it always, I’ve gotta work on me to be the best I can be to my baby and to my husband. It takes 20 minutes a day to work on my physical self, my health is important physical as well as mental and emotional... boy it’s been a journey so far!
Comment if you can relate to any of this! I’d love to hear your late ni
