I have been a new mommy for almost one full year now! How crazy is that! While I have enjoyed most of my journey through motherhood, I have some confessions for you.
I am still unable to change a pooped diaper without gagging or holding my breathe.
I stopped using cloth diapers when Miss A was 7 months.
I admit that disposable diapers are easier to use and cloth diapers stink.
I don’t wash the pacifier when it drops on the floor. Most of the time, I just pop it back into her mouth.
I really miss breastfeeding my baby.
I ended up “drying up” because I supplemented too much formula. Instead of breastfeeding longer, I wanted my sleep and alcohol again.
My baby gets her temper from me.
I started teaching my baby sign language but failed. She does know how to sign “milk” though.
We haven’t eliminated cursing from our home yet. I hope she doesn’t say F*** ever.
I feed my baby the healthy stuff on my plate that I won’t eat… cooked carrots & peas.
My social anxiety is significantly eased by bringing my baby with me places.
I never knew children were so incredibly cute until I had my own.
I am afraid of the day my baby no longer wants to give me hugs & kisses.
I can’t imagine going through nine months of pregnancy, labor, extreme sleep deprivation, and on and off battles with post partum depression AGAIN, while taking care of a newborn AND a toddler. YET, I am still excited about having a second baby. <3
