It’s a bond that I will never be able to describe.
To be completely honest the thing that scared me the most during pregnancy was not the labor pains or the delivery, but it was the idea of breastfeeding. Not sure why, but I always had the idea that it would be painful and tedious, when in fact it has now become one of my favorite things to do. I never thought I would actually enjoy breastfeeding, but I just love being able to have the quiet moments together as we bond. I find myself just smiling as I gaze into Chloe’s eyes…I still can’t believe that she is mine! (Just to clarify I believe that all mothers can have a special bond with their little one whether they breastfeed or not, but this is simply from my own personal experience !)
Today Chloe turns 1 month old! If the first month is an indication of how fast Chloe will grow, I’m going to cherish every waking moment with her because it’s all happening too fast. I wish I could freeze time, and live in this moment forever. She’s already over 11 pounds, loves to make funny little noises, loves to sleep on daddy’s chest, smiles when she dreams, sleeps with both hands up high, and has the funniest “milk” drunk faces (her face after she drinks too much milk). Funny how just several months ago I never had a desire to have kids. It just wasn’t my thing. I always knew I was going to have them one day, but it was never on the top of my list. Here I am now barely able to leave the house because all I want to do is cuddle with her all day. Chloe has been the greatest blessing, and I cannot imagine life without her. She has brought the best out of both Allen and I , and has enlarged our lives.
Happy 1 Month Chloe!
P.S HERE’S a video of her when she was first born. Can’t believe it’s been a month already!
