I was just thinking this weekend about how I miss being pregnant with her. I miss her being in there and not knowing what she was like. Now she is here and I know her and it's weird to think that I didn't really know her while she was still in there.
As for right now, I will miss all of it. I can remember crying one night in the first month or so because I was thinking about how one day I will struggle to remember precisely how her face looked and the way she smelled and the sound of her little voice. She will change and my memory of her will change and I wish there were some way to just burn it all into my brain.
yes. I put it on fb once that when I hold him close I tell myself over and over "don't forget how this feels". The baby time just goes so fast.
I love it when she falls asleep while nursing and then softly laughs and smiles in her sleep. So cute!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE that too - I love nursing Ryan to sleep. Nursing was always such a stressful time for us because of his feeding issues but now things are turning around and he falls asleep nursing instead of crying and I enjoy it so much and am so thankful I've stuck with it. Those little sleepy smiles after eating just make my heart melt!
He also does this little thing I jokingly call "nipple talk". When he's done eating (if he's awake) he starts softly cooing and talking, sometimes with the nipple still in his mouth! It always makes me smile.
After we had my daughter I got so, sooo sad thinking about the fact that we might not have any more kids. I hadn't really spent any time during my pregnancy or her newborn stage really letting it sink in that it might be the last time I was experiencing those things. I really wanted to have more kids but as she got older and we still weren't ready financially I'm not sure we ever really would have. But then came our little surprise Noah! I am so thankful that I did get one more chance to experience the whole baby stage, but even knowing this is it and trying to soak it all in it kills me to know that like was mentioned above, at some point I am not going to be able to remember it clearly. I wish it would never end!
I will miss the way he looks at me like I'm the most important & wonderful thing in the world! He'll be sitting in his chair, playing with toys, catch sight of me and stare at me with a big ole grin! I just sigh and tell him no boy has ever given me such a dreamy look before and probably never will!
Also the chit chat he does after he's nursed, like he's telling me all about his day!

Yes! I just said this to my mom today. I will be reading my book or playing on the laptop, look over at him and he just smiling at me. Melts my heart every time. I wish I could bottle the feelings.
I totally agree with the smiles! DH gets all butt hurt because he only looks at me that way, and I'm like give me a break! I carried him, birthed him, feed him, love all over him... I'm momma! No one will ever be who we are to our babies... not even dad!
