I remember when Charlie was born i felt so overwhelmed. The epideral took a long time to wear off so i couldnt walk or lift myself up to hold her right. I felt just overwhelmed and inadiquit. They took her to get her bath and DH went to sleep. When they brought her back she asked me if i wanted to be her warmer or the machine...of coarse i said me! they stripped her down to her dipe and i tucked her into my night gown. I felt like a mom for the first time. she felt so good. We feel asleep and that was the beginning of our love affair.
Thank you Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my gorgeous siggie!
When she was in the nicu and I'd go sit w/ her I would take her put her on her tummy on my chest and we'd sit that way pretty much the entire time between feeds I had a rough time bonding not being able to be with her 24/7 so those hours really made me feel like a mommy to my little baby.
As soon as she was born, they put her right on my chest. They didn't do that with Hayden, and I loved that they put her right on me. I'm not sure why that was such an amazing feeling. She was so beautiful, even covered in junk. I got my Halle!
I really really loved when she laughs. I think some of my very favorite memories are when Hayden gets her laughing so hard... And I look around and my happy little family and I love life.
When she nursed for the first time it was amazing. the nurses were trying to help me get her latched and I really dont remember hearing what they were saying all I know was it was just me and her in that moment I blocked everything out. And she nursed for 15 minutes this way. I will remember that forever the feeling I get just thinking about it.
