Rookie Mommy Rambles

{i’m wearing:  michael kors top (similar)// h&m belt // le spec sunnies // ankle pants }
We sit and stare at Tuck.
And wonder, if there is anything better than babies?
Before he was around I thought OH SURELY.  now… no way.  nothing better.
I am the annoying person now. 
the one that posts photos of her baby on facebook.
My friend count is sure to take a hit.
We’re responsible for a teeny tiny man human.
Most humbling and amazing honor.
When I first met him, i kissed his lips.
and said “I am his first kiss!” to JB.
I can’t imagine I’ll be a great mother in law. . .  lol.
I’ve been peed on two times already.
  When a babies hollering about his wet diaper, you forget to use a peepee teepee.  
and you get peed on.  
and you don’t even care.
JB brings me breakfast in bed every morning since we’ve been home.
hot oatmeal, coffee, orange juice. 

bless him.   

{pregnant ladies, reference this!}
I now want a hundred baby boys.
the girl, who at one time, only ever wanted girls.

    I'm definitely not complaining about all those precious baby Tuck shots! He's adorable and I love seeing his cute little face pop up. Especially in all those outfits.

    Best ever ever ever. I know. It's amazing, humbling, spectacular. I changed the poopiest smelliest diaper this morning…and then picked her up and kissed all over her. 😉 Be in love and enjoy every single moment. You deserve it! and you look amazingly gorgeous and so in love with your beautiful life. I love you and couldn't be happier for you! Now let's plan a Tuck & Stella play date 🙂 Mwah!! xoxoox

    He is the cutest thing ever, and so tiny. Personally, I love seeing pictures of babies on my facebook, my cousins baby is the cutest thing in the entire world (though I may be a little biased)
    xo, Maria

    So sweet! You look amazing, like you didn't just have a baby. You also look different. isn't that crazy? Your mommy look is different and dare I say even more beautiful than before 😉

    Also, I meant to thank you in your last post for being so honest about breastfeeding. It is definitely not as easy as some women make it look when they just whip out a boob at a restaurant. I LOVE that I can give my baby the nourishment he needs, but dang it hurts and can just be so darn tough. Glad to hear you are starting to enjoy it. Best wishes to you!

    It's so crazy isn't it, the way our body responds to theirs. How a kiss is wayyy more than just a kiss when it comes from your baby. My daughter has started to "French" me lately. No idea where she learned that but I'm rolling with it. I love her. The way she fits just perfectly with me, the way my body responds to so much as a whimper for her. This bond can never change Or be broken. I cross my fingers that next we'll have a boy. Because I yearn for him. Maybe not today, but soon. I want my mamas boy and my mommy's girl. I want them both. I want it all. Having it all for your family really isn't asking to much right?
