We 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? We mean by that, 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. We got 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 us thinking.
How You’ll Feel In The First Months Of Being A Mom
For starters, you know how babies cry the very moment they are out of their mother’s womb. We don’t believe in rebirth or stuff like that. But the way our son behaved the first few months made us 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 with a baby seemed to be the hardest. They slept throughout, not eating or being very social. The only thing that was happening was a LOT of drinking. Every once in a while! Of course, it’s milk. Don’t you think it’s a bit too much to drink that way, not knowing day from night?!
The second-month stage is slightly better. They will start smiling. They 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”. The drinking situation continued though.
when does life with a newborn get better?
The third and fourth months with a baby is when the fun begins. They try to motivate and uplift themselves, literally. Slowly will start eating good food and being nicer to people. Much better!
By the time babies crossed one year old, they understood that this life had so much to offer. They are running around and exploring it happily. Still needs a peg or two to start the day off though. Well, you can’t complain as long as they are sleeping through the night.
Jokes apart, Isn’t it just wonderful how babies don’t do anything deliberately but still make our hearts go full the whole time.
Parenting is hard, especially motherhood, it is so messy, challenging, and exhausting. Those sleepless nights, round-the-clock feeding, diaper change now and then!
But, It’s still beautiful, endearing, and amazing all at the same time. You wouldn’t want it any different or any other way, not a single thing. It’s just perfect the way it is and you will love every bit of it.
With all of that being said, as a mother, it is essential for you to keep yourself sane, self-care helps you to keep a good balance in your life to raise healthier children for the future.
