Remember when ...
Remember when you found out you were expecting and you felt a joy you had never felt before?
Remember when you made it to 12 weeks and breathed a sigh of relief and felt even more elated?
Remember when you had your first scan and you actually saw the little miracle inside of you?
Remember the tears of joy and the hours looking incredulously at the little black and white picture?
Remember when you found out whether you were having a boy or girl (or chose not to know)?
Remember when you would wander slowly through baby stores, picking out bamboo muslin wraps?
Remember the baby shower with all the gifts and games?
Remember when you studied for hours on google the difference between baby wrap carriers and which one to get?
Remember when you thought to yourself that everything has to be absolutely perfect and of course you are going to use cloth nappies?!
Remember the first time your little miracle was placed on your chest and the feeling of disbelief that went along with it?
Remember navigating the first few weeks of breastfeeding and the feeling of complete awe at our what our bodies are capable of?
Remember the first few months of self doubt, of sleepless nights and exhaustion?
Remember the first time your precious baby smiled at you and in a heart beat you knew you would go to the ends of the world to protect them?
Remember the feeling of your baby curled up asleep on your chest?
Remember the frustration, the tears, the joy, the excitement, the sense of adventure and knowing you would not change a thing?
