In these last few weeks I have seen Isaiah change so much, he is babbling, laughing, pulling his dads beard, touching things he’s not supposed to be touching and becoming so much more independent.

These last eight months have flown by so quickly, it was only yesterday when I remember holding him in my arms for the first time and now he’s a happy little boy with a strong personality of his own. It is crazy to think that a few months ago I was struggling to get into a routine I was constantly tired, worried and overthinking things. I understand emotions are all over the place, especially being a new mom but it  was starting to get too much and I wasn’t able to enjoy those moments like I wanted to. As much as I loved every second of taking care of him, I would be lying if I said it didn’t affect my mental and physical health as well as my relationship with my loved ones.  I started to learn that things were improving considerably the older Isaiah got and i finally started feel like myself again

I am extremely thankful for these experiences and there is so much more that I learn everyday and will continue to learn. Isaiah has changed me so much and I love being his mom. If you’re a new mom like me just know

  1. It’s only going to get better
  2. That’s your child, you raise them the way you want to and not the way society tells you to 
  3. You’re NOT a bad mom 
  4. Make ‘me’ time 
  5. Make time for your significant other
  6. Accept help when you need it 

and lastly, you’re doing a GREAT job and never let anyone tell you otherwise.
