I wonder if there is a perfect word to express one’s feelings when a baby is born. All that happiness and laughter a newborn brings into our lives! They truly are a little bit of heaven sent down to earth.
However, have you noticed how boring babies are for the first few months of their life? I mean, they are extremely adorable and even the simple things they do like how they yawn or sneeze make you want to just squeeze and eat them up. I get it. But, don’t you think they seem pretty unimpressed by everything that’s going on around. If it’s a grown-up behaving the same way as a newborn, won’t you find him/her extremely boring? Not smiling or responding to anything! Funny if you put it that way, Huh?
This got me thinking. How do babies feel about the whole situation?
For starters, you know how babies cry the very moment they are out of mother’s womb. I don’t believe in rebirth or stuffs like that. But the way my son behaved the first few months made me ponder it though. His first cry almost sounded like “NOT AGAIN!!!”, as if he was still not over his past life or maybe he was not happy living another one.
The first month seemed the hardest. He slept throughout, not eating or being very social. The only thing that’s happening was a LOT of drinking. Every once in a while! Of course, it’s milk. I know! But don’t you think it’s a bit too much to drink that way, not knowing day from night?!
The second was slightly better. He started smiling. Yayyy!! He may have thought – “Ah, these guys don’t seem so bad after all. They are friendly and kind to me. Maybe I should be a little nicer to them too”. Drinking situation continued though.
The third and fourth months went by happy. He tried motivating and uplifting himself, literally. Slowly started eating good food and being nicer to people. Much better! By the time he crossed one, he understood that this life had so much to offer. He is running around and exploring it happily. Still needs a peg or two to start the day off though. Well, I am not complaining as long as he is sleeping through the night.
Jokes apart, Isn’t it just wonderful how babies don’t do anything deliberately but still make our heart go full the whole time.
Motherhood is messy, challenging and exhausting. Those sleepless nights, around the clock feeding, diaper change now and then! But, It’s still beautiful, endearing and amazing all at the same time. I wouldn’t want it any different or any other way, not a single thing. It’s just perfect the way it is and I love every bit of it.
