My beautiful baby boy is 12 weeks old!
Forth trimester certainly has been a wild ride.
𝐒𝐎 𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐘 𝐄𝐌𝐎𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐒.
Here are some love notes I wrote to myself along the way…
♡ Nap every damn day!
♡ An hour each morning to nourish your soul will be a game changer
♡ Mother yourself as much as you Mother Asher
♡ Enjoy your evening wine(s) without the #mumguilt
♡ A good mix between routine and surrender will keep you sane
♡ Online shopping, spew rags and @thedinnerladies are your new best friends
♡ Avoid the time checks throughout night, it’s only going to make you anxious
♡ It’s perfectly ok to use formula when you need to, co sleep, pat Asher to sleep and speak in a high pitched baby voice all day
♡ If comparison creeps in, get the f&@! of social media
♡ You have limited time while Asher naps so use it wisely
♡ Cry, cry, cry and cry some more
♡ Less worry, more dancing
♡ Vitamin D heals everything, get outside daily
♡ You’re not crazy or a bitch, you’re just experiencing the biggest transition of your life, be kind
♡ You’re body is healing from trauma, it’s not going to ‘bounce back’ so rest and respect it
♡ Doing nothing all day is a win
♡ Soak up every moment. Take in every smile, cuddle, cry, fart, poop explosion, spew and nipple rip because it will all go by so fast
♡ Repeat after me ‘it will pass’
