These were taken about 3 weeks later I gave birth.
When I look at these pictures, I just see a brand new mama going through the biggest change and adjustment of her life. I'm not going to lie, for a while it was a little rough. It wasn't so much the big adjustment, but the recovery... Oh, I was completely naive to think that the hardest part was over after giving birth!
People don't often talk about your postpartum recovery, so I was completely caught off guard when I went through it. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I felt buried, defeated, and hopeless. But it's amazing how time can heal you physically and mentally.
At almost 4 months after delivering my baby girl, I'm finally getting the hang of things.
I'm not a pro by any means, but I feel like I got this new routine down.
We have a schedule that works for us really well, and I'm relieved to say that we are thriving as a family now. Brining a child in this world was no walk in the park, but this raising a baby thing is the most challenging thing I have ever done in my life. But I feel so lucky and privileged to be able to do it.
You guys, I just absolutely love being a mama. It's hard, but it's the best thing I've done in my life.
I'm so thrilled to be able to start sharing more of this new part of my life...
I want to talk more about my favorite baby & mama products, parenting mishaps, post pregnancy body... Gosh, I could go on forever! I feel like I'm rediscovering myself and a whole new world ever since having Coco. It's kind of exciting.
