is almost over and she’ll soon be a ‘toddler’. #inshallah
This was my 2nd time at the rodeo but you still forget a lot about the high’s and low’s of the first year! So I thought I’d list down the things I’d like to say to #newmoms
...especially to my dear friends @saadyaakbar @sarazehri
! If anyone’s got anything to add, please share! :) 👇🏻👶🏻🍼
1. You hear about the bad nights (I know I complain a lot myself!) and you hear about the stress, lack of privacy, etc. but I feel like we don’t talk about the good parts! Having a baby is so much FUN! The giggles, smiles, the feeling of seeing your baby learn, grow and thrive all because of you & your partner! Its exhilarating. And don’t get me started on that sweet baby smell! 😍 Read up on how to help your baby get to those milestones and then revel in their success as if it were your own! The cuddles and the feel of a warm little body in your arms feeling safe and hence, sleeping away...it’s magic! .
2. As cliche as this sounds but it really does goes by SO fast. Take more photos and videos. You won’t regret it. In 5 years when that baby is rolling his eyes at you and saying things like ‘mommy, I KNOW already you don’t have to tell me!’ ; you’ll remember the time when he was mooing and making fish faces thanks to you!
3. The minute you get comfortable with your baby’s schedule something will happen to change it up! I highly recommend reading and following @thewonderweeks
Just like physical growth, our babes also grow mentally incredibly fast. And just like their little bodies have growth spurt pains, your baby’s world is literally shook up when he/she can suddenly comprehend things like color, sound recognition, movement, cause and effect, etc. Just a simple thing as babbling is an achievement. And before every new talent there will be a ‘stormy period’ where your baby’s difficult and upset!
