It’s been amazing and I’m absolutely loving it! She changes every day and each day gets more and more exciting!
I love watching her grow, I stare at her in amazement for hours and I love spending every moment with her. Feeding her, sleeping in my arms, lying on my tummy, sharing a shower, and so much more…she is just adorable.
We’ve now been everywhere together and she’s just good as gold on our travels! There will always be times when she needs a change right before we need to leave, spits up milk on a top I really wanted to wear and sleeps deeply when she’d normally feed. It’s just something you have to accept will happen!
It’s scary how quickly time flies, I just want to be with her every moment of every day…forever!! It’s an indescribable, overwhelming, inexplainable, unconditional, true love
So much has changed in just over 4 weeks. Sleepless nights, long days, nappy changes, examining poo, new routines, frantic google searches all starting with ‘is it normal for’, visitors, constant breastfeeding, my body changing, her body growing, hearing a heartbreaking cry, new experiences, endless new facial expressions and a whole list of firsts for all of us! We learn something new daily and each day just gets better and better!
And now to top it all off at 5 weeks old, Imani did her first proper smile back at me!
Not the usual smile in her sleep which she’s always done and is adorable but a proper interactive ‘I’m communicating with you mummy’ smile! And now she’s worked out how to smile she keeps doing it! Wow!!! All the sleepless nights and exhaustion is forgotten INSTANTLY!!
One smile from my gorgeous warrior princess and it makes any previous challenges/troubles simply disappear!
One smile and it feels like she’s saying ‘thank you mummy’ and it melts my heart!
One smile and it gives me a big boost of energy!
I’m ready and motivated for the next 4 weeks and I’m looking forward to it too!
