Love List

This has been a magical week. I am loving being a mom and all that comes with it. Here are some specific things I am loving.


Ok I had to start off with this pic. It cracks me up.

1. Feeling productive. After too many months of just gestating and trying to fill in my time I now find that the simple ritual of feed/change/nap extremely productive and rewarding. Especially since M is rocking the baby charts.

2. HGTV. I loved HGTV before but lately it has been a lifesaver during those midnight feedings.

3. Breastfeeding. I won't get too specific here but I feel so blessed that it has come so naturally, even if I had to change today because of leakage issues....

4.Everything about Baby M. His smiles, his squirms, his smell. Oh goodness, I had heard about the smell of your own baby but seriously I cannot get enough of it. I just sniff him all day long.

5. My hubby. One night M was having some trouble getting back to sleep (aka he needed to burp) and I stood there patting his back and rocking him trying to lull him into sweet dreams. The hubby got out of bed and rocked with us while giving me a massage. I wanted to cry. I feel so lucky to have such a stud of a husband and father for my child. To see the way he looks at M makes me super happy.


I feel so greatful for such a content little guy. He is already switching to a night schedule and it makes me happy. He has brought so much joy to my life already I can't wait for the future.

  2. This post is golden. I love reading beautiful mom posts. I'm also jealous that my mom got to see your baby and I didn't! You guys have to come swimming again!
