Am I really a momma?

Last week at this time, I was in the hospital. I can't believe it has been a week since our little guy has joined our family. What a week it has been too! How can it be that you have about 9 (10) months to prepare for a child, but you never really feel prepared? Why is it that you have about 632 emotions at once in your body and you have no control over them? Why are nights the hardest and most emotional? And why does hubs have to leave me and go back to work tomorrow?!
In all honesty, things are good. I think the questions above are somewhat normal...and if they are not, please don't say a word!
When people ask how we are doing, I say adjusting. I think that is the appropriate word. Things are not bad, things are not GREAT. By that I mean, I feel that I worry way too much. Is he getting enough to eat? Is he sleeping too much? Why hasn't he poo'd in 24 hours? Should I call the doctor AGAIN? All new momma worries.
But oh how I truly love the little guy. My heart is so much bigger with the love that I have for him.
I will share more later, but it is true, I am a momma to the most beautiful little boy EVER!

He truly is the most beautiful little boy. I too am in awe of his beautiful skin, nose and that ton of hair!

632 emotions? That's all?! Girl, you are perfectly normal, and don't let anyone tell you any differently. Please know if you need any help, I'm just around the corner.

Congratulations again to two wonderful, new parents!!
