Caution: mommy feelings ahead.
This little Bear cub just had her 1st Birthday celebration, and I couldn’t help but dig through the archives for old pictures from those fleeting newborn days. It feels apropos, as I begin this blog and reminisce about my beginning as a mom. I never expected to enjoy a baby so much (I’d never really been interested in them before). But I was instantly captivated. These images are probably my favorite; at just 2 weeks old she seemed to be laughing with me as though we were old friends, and was already showing her insatiable curiosity. My baby Bear didn’t understand that newborn pictures are supposed to feature calm, peacefully sleeping babies. (I wonder what one of those is like?)
These photos remind me of how much I miss maternity leave and spending all day (in yoga pants!) snuggling with my baby. (Ok and all the Netflix. There was a lot of that during nursing and naps. 6 Seasons worth of Parenthood, in fact) Sometimes I wish we could do it again, everyday! But the truth is, she doesn’t just stare at me anymore. She’s got all sorts of things to do, and I suppose so do I. Going back to work was a really tough decision for me as a new mom, but for right now, we are both better off for it.
