I am not even sure I can convey how happy I feel, like way deep down happy. I look at my two healthy, amazing sons and my ever supportive husband and feel like I might be the luckiest woman in the world. Of course it has been busy and I am getting less than the ideal amount of sleep. But this is it, this is what it is all about. Through dietetics I have had the pleasure of working with a lot of the over 80 crowd. When we chat nine times out of ten their stories come back to when they had young children. It reinforces to me how this needs to be soaked in. Being the second time around I know how fast it goes. I find myself taking more time to cuddle, look at tiny toes, smell that pure baby smell and take it all in. I also spend a lot less time worrying...I have not had one late night Google-fest. That was a near constant with my first son. I trust myself as a mother more.
I have also taken so much enjoyment out of sharing him with my family. Seeing my two sets of grandparents meet him for the first time was very emotional. I loved watching them re-live their own moments with their babies and still marvel at the magic of a new baby. Mine and my husband's parents are also over the moon in love...they are incredibly supportive and bring a richness to our kids lives that I cannot even quantify. And Hudson...he loves Sawyer. He might love him a little too much sometimes. That's the way it goes with siblings though.
