Short and Sweet. Full of Sap.0
I can’t help it but I’m feeling a bit sentimental over the fact that my baby is having a birthday next week. There is something about the overall quickness of babyhood that comes full circle once they turn one, and I’m finding it a little bitter sweet. This last year has been one of my favourite years for me so far. It turns out that after having a high needs fussy baby, I also had a text book baby as my second. Leaving me feeling pretty well rounded in the parenting department. I am so grateful to be able to have these babies and feel so much gratitude to be able to be a mother, their mother.
When I was pregnant with Josephine I was very adamant that this was my last baby. Pregnancy was physically hard for me and being a high risk pregnancy did cause some extra stress. Despite being truly exhausting, I love being a mother to babies. Am I truly finished having all of my babies? I don’t think that I have reached a final decision just yet. I could be done… but I could also see myself holding one more newborn (but not anytime soon).
