I wanted to hear about the most rewarding and most difficult parts of having a newborn. I pick up little tidbits at every newborn shoot, but it’s wonderful just to have a little insight from my community.
Straight from the Aloha Zo community:
Not being able to instantly stop them crying
(from big brother) Changing his diaper!
Getting home from the hospital and thinking, “What do I do now?”
The sleep deprivation and the crying. So. Much. Crying!
Having to inhale your food when you get the chance
The lack of freedom—to be alone, shower or eat
To do anything on your own schedule
Don’t worry! Although I like knowing realistic, don’t worry. I like to end on a high note. The goodness that make all the sleep deprivation worth while...
Watching them start to interact with you and the things around them
(from big brother) playing with him!
THAT NEWBORN SMELL!! And their sleepy snuggles
The snuggles and the pure joy
Looking at this tiny human you and your partner created out of love. awwwww…
The slowing down, rioting into what really matters, and letting all else fade
The constant connection and contact
The love you feel for your baby is unlike any other. You’re immediately happy when you look at him
Thanks for sharing friends. I’d love to hear what else you have to share. Feel free to share in the comments. And of course I’ve got to share some of my favorites from the newborn shoots in the past year.
