New mommyhood is great. And scary, exciting, frustrating, and the most rewarding thing I've ever done all in one. Erin Victoria is beautiful and I'm in love with her. I love how she smells and the sounds she makes, I lose track of time just staring at her.
A lot of my other hobbies get put aside because I am consumed with taking care of my new baby. My garden is full of weeds and produce that begs to be picked. I'm lucky if I finish a row with my knitting. My long lost love, sleep, eludes me. I have to be reminded either by my husband or my growling stomach that I haven't eaten lunch.
So far Erin and I have recovered from childbirth together, learned to breastfeed together, conquered thrush together, cried together, and fallen asleep together. I am already scared that she is going to grow up too fast. Ahhhhh. . . baby love.
