"After giving birth, your mind is a fog."
(Wise words from the radiant momma photographed below).
Fellow mommas out there, I know you're nodding along with me.
Soon-to-be mommas, trust us: it's true.
There is so much going on in the first days after your baby is born. You're in a whole new emotional realm, enamored with a tiny human and enthralled by everything he is about. You're tired because you're taking care of your new love around the clock. And you're adjusting to this new normal, a normal that you've never walked through before but are anxious to navigate.
And in the midst of all that newness, there is the thing that put you in this situation to begin with: love.
When you see the look of awe in your husband's eyes as he gazes at your new son, when you tug the striped cap from the hospital off to admire the soft hair underneath, when your daughter sees her baby brother for the first time, when you become four, you'll want to record every single detail in your memory.
Because each of those moments, and all of the other little ones in between, are invaluable.
