The other week, I was visiting my friend Karen who just had her second son a few weeks after the Poptart was born. She reassured me that, “Even if you feel like you’re faking it, you doing okay. And when you start giving other people parenting advice then you’ve arrived.”
So today I hijacked Amy’s comment section and gave her some advice (she ASKED). And I think that Karen’s right – I’m getting better with this, and far more comfortable. Something turned around the 8 week mark. Breastfeeding got way easier. I got used to the (one time per night only) 4am wakeup call to feed her.
And she started turning into a person. She’ll see me coming to get her and break into this huge, gummy grin and wave her arms and legs around in excitement that Mom! Is! Going! To! Pick! Her! UP!!!!! and squeak and turn me into a puddle of goo.
And that is the best feeling in the world.
