Hi all, I'm Sonya from a gray rainbow. This is my very first time guest posting for someone, I hope you enjoy. My blog is mainly about my life as a mother. And today I want to touch on the early days and something I wish I would have done differently.
18 months ago I gave birth to a healthy little boy. Gerardo Gabriel Sahagun III but for short, we call him Ardo. Seeing that I was a new mom, I wasn't terrified but I also wasn't laid back,I was in fact very overly extremely cautious.
Newborns up to 3 months normally wake up about every 2-3 hours, they eat.sleep.poop. That is their life. Normally moms try and get their sleep in when baby sleeps. NOT I. My mind would be so consumed of thoughts and worry. Looking back at pictures of my sweet Ardo, there's one thing I regret. Not living in the now.
I see new baby pictures of Ardo and I remember how I was feeling. Wondering if he is hungry, hot, when his next feeding is? What my next move was instead of just staring at my sweet little guy and letting everything else go. Around 6 months of age, I decided to change that. I told myself to live in the moment, and soak up this little bundle.
Every day I take a moment look at my now toddler and soak up a moment. Toddlerhood has come on way too fast. I never believed people when they said, "babies grow so quickly," til I had one of my own. Don't get me wrong, I still wonder ... sometimes. I guess that's just the mom I am, but soaking up a moment is never too late, just gotta do it.
