Four weeks ago today, I became a mother. I've never experienced so much love and happiness in such a short amount of time. And although he only joined our family a matter of days ago, it already feels like our son has been a part of our lives forever. I can't imagine waking up each day without looking into those big blue eyes and hearing the coos that send my heart aflutter. I know all new parents are proud, but I never understood just how proud until now!
Everyone close to me has noted how much I've changed already. There's a peace, serenity and calm in our lives never before experienced. And through sleeplessness and recovery, the smile never leaves my face. Nothing else matters because life, quite simply, is bliss.
I've waited my entire life for this. I intend to cherish every single second given to me.
