36 hours of being a MOM...
My mom and I have always been really close. There were a few struggles here and there in my teenage years, but for the most part we have always been the best of friends. We like the same food, movies, and games. We have the same sense of humor, style, and we are both a little too obsessed with reality t.v.. I have always known that my mom loved me, but when I became pregnant I began to understand a whole new meaning to that love. My pregnancy was easy, I didn't have a lot of struggles. However, no matter the difficulty level, I fell in love with this little baby I didn't even know. Everyday I bonded more and more with a child that I couldn't wait to hold (or dress up). I started to realized that my mom had a bond with me that I didn't even remember. She loved me before I existed and that love was absolutely unconditional. Being a mom for a whole 36 hours- I can say that bond has exploded into something beyond love. I am so thankful for my wonderful parents and Ty's wonderful parents who have sacrificed everything they can for us. I am so thankful for a Mom that I am bestfriends with. I am so thankful for a husband that will honestly push himself every minute of everyday to be the best Dad possible. And most importantly, I am beyond thankful for our new little Emree. Pictures seriously don't do her justice (although I am completely bias and should be). The labor and delivery were a little easier then the scary nightmares I had pictured in my mind, but that is mostly because the drugs were even more wonderful then I had anticipated. Healing will definitely be a process and we will see if my poor belly button ever recovers... but anyways, Thank You all for your prayers, love, and support. I think I have already established this, but i am truly blessed!
