Hello! It has been a while since I last blogged. I gave birth in February! Introducing Naomi Lu, born on 2/20/18 at 4:06PM. I am just getting past the newborn haze and feeling like myself again, but my heart feels so full and I am so thankful to have this little girl in my life. She is an easy baby but started rejecting the bottle a month ago, so I feel like I am constantly nursing. When I am exhausted and when the days feel so long and when I long for freedom, I try to remember the feeling of her warm body on me, the touch of her tiny hands clutching my finger, the sweet smiles she gives, the funny faces she makes at herself in the mirror, and all the small milestones I am blessed to witness. It’s hard to believe that I can provide all the nourishment she needs and the comfort she seeks. I know that when she is older, she won’t need me the way she needs me now, so I cherish the late nights when I get to hold her close. I love this little angel.
I have three more weeks at home before I return back to work. I look forward to adult conversations and to eat a hot meal without interruption, but I am also sad to be apart from her for so many hours every day. Since life is extremely busy right now, I am not sure how often I will be blogging. There are definitely things about my pregnancy and now motherhood that I think will be really helpful to others, so I am keeping this blog open. Thanks for following me on my new journey!
