Re: Best part so far

  • Since I'm aFTM, all of this has been awesomely overwhelming. The absolute best moment so far was when DS opened his eyes for the first time in the dark of our hospital room on his first day. He looked at MH and me with his serious little look and we both bawled.

  • When she takes her little hands and wraps them tightly around my hands or wrists when I rock with her and looks right into my eyes like she is so intent on learning everything about who her new mama is.

    And also love seeing dd1 kiss and love on her baby sister. having a second child doesn't split your love between them, it really does just multiply!!

  • I love that no matter how tired I am or how frustrated I get at times I can look at her and she smiles and just melts my heart. It has been a crazy and overwhelming ride so far but I wouldn't change it for the world. I love snuggling with her and seeing her grow. I know she won't stay little forever, but some days I wish she could. Being a mom is amazing!
  • Watching him smile in his sleep and holding his hand while nursing. I just love him!!

  • My 2 yr old said "i hold baby" last night for the first time and I sat next to him and put the baby in his arms and he began kissing "baby Benny" on the head.

    Brothers. They are the best thing that has ever happened to me.

  • Ive been super overwhelmed and frustrated on my days but I love that when LO is upset she immediately calms when I lay her down on my chest. I'm the only person who can give her that comfort.

  • The times when I'm nursing her and DS comes to snuggle with us.  I get emotional if I think too much about it, but it's just scary how fast the time flies and I love that I've already gotten so many quiet little moments with just the two of them.

    The way he snuggles and falls asleep in my arms. Enjoy this part, ladies. It goes by so quickly!

    ETA: the way my daughter constantly kisses him.

  • The snuggles after feeding and burping where she stretches both of her arms out and "hugs" me. I also love the sleepy milk smiles as well.

    PAL/PGAL Welcome
  • When she wants to be with me and her happy smiles after bf and I'm holding her. I love her more than I thought possible!

  • When he's crying and the only thing that will soothe him is being held and snuggled by me. It's an amazing feeling, it's only been 3 weeks but The love I feel for my little man is beyond imagine. He is perfect and he is mine.
  • The best part of mothering is how this whole experience has already made me a better person 6 weeks in. I have never had to be so patient, selfless, and responsible. My son has been my greatest teacher.

  • I love how she's the perfect little combo of DH and I.  I love how she studies my face in awe, and I love the new smiles we've been getting over the last week.  I love snuggling her and just FINALLY being a mommy.  It's everything I imagined it'd be, and then some. Smile

  • Seeing my girls together is the best thing. DD1 is so nurturing and tender with her little sister... it's the sweetest thing! I can't wait to see their interactions when DD2 is a little older :)

  • 12 days in - I absolutely LOVE seeing DH with her.  I knew he would be, but he is the most involved and loving dad a baby girl could have.  Makes me love him even more than before.  Not to mention the fact that she is a mini-DH in looks - I just love that we've gone from an "us" to a family.

    well said! And I completely agree.

    in addition; the first smile I got yesterday when she looked right at me and grinned. It was an amazing start to Mothers Day weekend :)

    could've wrote this myself!!!!!!!!

  • For me, the best part has just been having the realization every day that after all the years of wanting to have a baby and the treatments and the doctors- he's here and this really is happening! I love it when he makes his different faces and showing him off to different family and friends when they come to meet him! :D
