Remember how I told you close to a billion people told me things like "as soon as that baby is out you're gonna be wishing you were pregnant again" or "if you think it's a lot of work NOW, wait until she's born!"
Well, I'm here to tell you they were all wrong. Having a newborn is the greatest thing in the whole world. My new job of "mommy" is the absolute best. After you have a baby, it's almost like you're on a high from happiness. It's a good thing too because you need something to cope with all that sleep deprivation, can I get an amen moms?!
We could not be happier with our Ainsley girl. Even though I don't get to bed most nights until about 2 or 3 am and haven't slept more than two hours at a time since she's been born, I love where we're at in life. I'm trying to soak up every second of her snuggles and that ever famous newborn smell. Losing sleep is tough, but when I think about how before I know it she will be going off to school, it helps me to embrace all those middle of the night feedings.
I guess what I'm saying is yes, it has been tough. But it had also been more incredible than I could have imagined. I love being a mom. I feel so blessed to have such a sweet little girl.
And for your viewing pleasure, of course I have to leave you with some pictures! :)
p.s. thanks for all your sweet congratulations!!!!!
