I have already decided that there was no life before my son was here. Because how could it have happened? It seems so far away? Everything before, and most of all since having my son seems like a weird dream. But in reality it all wasn’t that long ago. It wasn’t that long ago that I dreamed of having a baby, it wasn’t that long ago that my little man was in my belly, and it wasn’t that long ago that I had to live through the sleepless nights with a newborn. But looking back, it sometimes feels like a lifetime!
It’s hard to believe that last year at this time we were waiting to meet our little Pooh Bear. I was rather pregnant and very uncomfortable. Who knew that he’s make his entrance 2 weeks early? And with his arrival came the newborn stage. Sometimes I wonder who it was that nursed the little guy 10 times a day, was up through out the night and had to learn to take care of a baby every step of the way. I know that I did it, but that time seems so far away!
Did I ever sleep past 7:30 (at the latest!)?It feels so long ago that I could put him in one place and know that he wouldn’t move. It seems like forever ago that I pumped every night. I hated to pump and I feel like I haven’t done it in so long, but we had to hit my stash this past weekend and saw I still had milk from September. 2 months certainly isn’t that long ago!
I am pretty nervous for the years to come. Will they all go as quickly as this one? By the time we are ready for #2 it will seem like a lifetime ago that Christian was a newborn! I seem pictures of him on his first days home, and I look at myself and him and just can’t believe where we are today.
