Motherhood

People say that having a baby changes everything. While I know that now to be true, I'm still shocked at myself now and then.

At this moment I'm surprised at the silly things I get great joy from... Jonah being able to hold his head up on his own, his adorable smiles, the funny way he stretches when he wakes up from a nap , realizing I wake up the same way, watching him hug a toy or suck his thumb, even diapers (cloth ones).

I knew my life would change with a baby. I expected the sleepless nights, the staying home more, and the "lovely" stretch marks. I didn't expect to be so comfortable with it all.

Justin and I didn't live a crazy or party lifestyle before Jonah, but we still thought that Jonah would just fit right into our lifestyle instead of what really happened: changing our lifestyle to fit Jonah. But you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love seeing how fatherhood has changed my husband as well. He was an incredible hubby before Jonah, but to see what an amazing Dad he is... I can't even describe how blessed I feel.

Blessings; I am so very blessed, a wonderful husband, and a sweet baby boy. Does life get much better?
