today marks the 1st month birthday of my baby. time flies so fast! i am feeling both happy and sentimental at the same time. happy that i see him grow into a healthy, cute and naughty boy. at the same time, i am feeling a bit sentimental because a month already had pass and i’ve only got two more months left to enjoy his company before i go back to work. before, i thought that going back to work after being on maternity leave is a breeze but now that i am with my baby everyday, i feel like i just want to stay with him all the time. despite feeling tired and sleep deprived, bonding time with my baby is the most precious moment that i’ll forever cherish. i don’t mind staring, kissing, hugging and cuddling him all day long.
many things have change ever since he came into our lives. having a baby is a LOT of work. there are the sleepless nights wherein baby is wide awake during the wee hours in the morning, breastfeeding challenges like having to deal with sore and cracked nipples and “have i got enough milk?” to sustain his needs, maintaining the household and juggling chores while baby is asleep, less eating time and less bath time for me and no more time to do other things like reading books and surfing the internet. i miss sleeping side by side with my husband and sneaking quality time with him now proves to be a challenge because all of a sudden, the baby starts making noises or worst… crying in the background!
happy one month my baby boy. mom and dad loves you so much. i am praying and wishing that he grows to be a good person and that we will be guided to become good parents to him.
