I am sitting on the couch next to Lennox as I write this, and I cannot believe my baby boy is almost 3 months old! It feels just like yesterday that I was trying to fall asleep, laughing because he was such a wiggle worm inside my belly. Every time I felt Lennox move I laughed. It brought me such joy. Now, I look at this little boy who is such a wiggle worm out of the womb, and my heart swells larger than I ever could have imagined. I was just saying to my mother-in-law that I didn’t know I could love this much. She said she knew I could. ? She knew I would be a great mama. I’m a mama!! Wow… It continues to blow my mind every day!!! I used to think I’d have to change the way I dress, maybe be more sophisticated or something… LOL! So silly. I still love a cute sundress!
I titled this blog “Sunny Days” because I am now starting to feel the sunshine again… As all of you parents know, bringing home a newborn is incredibly challenging. Raising children is one of the most rewarding yet difficult experiences I’ve ever had. I’m constantly wondering if I’m doing a good job? If Lennox is truly happy? I mean, I think he is. He smiles all the time and not just because of gas anymore, but because he loves his mommy and daddy, staring at lights and warm baths. He loves to sing songs and fall asleep on my chest- he loves so many things! That makes me feel happy. That makes me feel like I’m doing something right? I’m so excited to see all the new things Lennox loves! What sports will he like to play? Will he even like to play sports? Maybe he will want to be a musician? Or a dancer? These are yet more reasons why my heart continues to swell with joy.
After we brought the baby home, I went through a rough patch. I know that postpartum depression is real, that it affects many women. The changes our bodies go through are miraculous but incredibly complex. My hormones and emotions were all over the place. I cried every day, sometimes for no reason at all. Other times because I wasn’t pregnant anymore, or I didn’t know how to calm my baby down, or because I saw a touching commercial. Whatever the reason was, it made sense to me somehow. Now that Lennox is almost 3 months old, I feel like I’m doing a wonderful job being a mom. I’m understanding more what my son needs, and ways to comfort him. He giggles when we sing together, and dance and make silly faces at each other! He is truly the love of my life. The gratitude I feel for this little boy is unmeasurable. Thank you God for making me a mommy. It’s the greatest role I could have ever wished for…
