Mommy - October 30

I am sitting here in between cleaning house and chasing and I am looking at my boys. I love being able to watch them grow and learn. It's one of the best things in my life. I was just wondering how everyone else was doing and feeling about their babies? I hope you guys are enjoying it as much as I am and just remember that babies are only babies for a short period of time. Then they grow into toddlers, then kids, then teens that will want to go do their own things (weep.) I'M NOT READY FOR THEM TO GROW UP YET! LOL. My oldest is 17 months and actually told me no for the first time without me telling him no first. And my baby is going to be crawling soon...NO I'M NOT READY! Any other moms have this anxiety? Any stories about your kids' milestones?

My daughter is 11 weeks and just fell asleep in my arms. I'm dreading the day she's too big to do that; I already miss how tiny she was the day she was born. But, at the same time, each new thing she learns and does thrills me to the core.

I'm a first time mom and my pregnancy was a total accident and I was having a hard time dealing with it up until the day I had her and held her in my arms. She's just awesome and I wouldn't give her back for the world. I dread going back to work and want to stay home so bad and raise her and do everything I can with her as my d/h got fixed while I was pregnant so this is the only child I'll probably ever have. I don't get upset when she wakes at night to feed or cries. I know it won't last forever although a night of sleep without her waking would be nice once in a while! She's actually oversleeping this morning and I've been putsing around the house waiting for her to wake up. She's usually up by now but she's only 2.5 wks old so she's always stretching it here and there. Oh there she is! Better go! ha ha! Speak of the devil!

Awwww that's so sweet to you both. I'm so happy that I can take advantage of not having to go to work just yet. I feel bad for those do because I hate having to leave them and I know most other moms hate it too. I wish there was a way to keep them little. I know it must be difficult to have to leave your little ones. I'm going to have to go to work but thank God not yet. Anyway good luck to you and your families. :o)

I must say that I agree with you. I am a first time mom and my son will be 2 mos tommorrow. Even though I love all the changes that he does everyday, I wish that he would slow down a bit. I look at him in my arms and I know that one day he is not going to even want me to hold him or kiss him for that matter. But one thing that I do feel, though, is that motherhood can only get better at this point. I know that he is going to go through so many milestones that is going to make me thank my lucky stars that he is mine. Thanks for this opportunity Mommy to express my grat_tude for mommyhood :)

I worry too much to enjoy it. I actually can't wait for her to get bigger and stronger. I long for the day when she's old enough to talk, and tell me what she needs, and where it hurts when she's sick etc. I know one day she'll be all grown up, and I'll be wondering where the time went, and wishing she was a baby again, but at the moment I just can't relax. She's gorgeous, I love her and I'm very proud that she's mine, but the anxiety never leaves me.

I wanted to be a mom my whole life. When my husband and I got married just over 3 yrs ago, we had already begun trying to conceive, I always took care of everyone else's babies and could not wait for the day I would not have to give the baby back. After trying for a year and a half, I saw a fertility specialist and had a laparoscopy done and was diagnosed with Level 4 endometriosis. The doctor cleaned me out, but did nto know if I would ever be able to get pregnant at all, but probably not without fertility help. I decided I did not want to go thru the heartbreaking cycles of fertility treatments etc. and began looking into adoption. Last year I was ready to submit the adoption application after christmas to begin that process. On Dec 4 last year I found out I was pregnant! So holding my 2 month old miracle every day is quite a blessing. He is strong and healthy and beautiful and a chunkeroo! He has a lot of issues right now with gas and colic and acid reflux and is not a good sleeper, at all, but I would not trade him for anything in the world. I just look at him in wonder sometimes that he came out of me. I have never seen anything so beautiful in my life! I cannot wait for him to reach each milestone and to share the world with him, and on the same note, I also dread him getting bigger and never being this small again. I love being his mommy. It is everything I ever hoped for, but I love him way more than I could have ever dreamed.

I actually love watching my baby grow and get older. Of course I enjoy every minute of it, but I love her gaining more and more independence, and growing into a little person!!!!


Barb - October 31

well... I have to say that thre is NO greater joy than being a mommy! I have my 3rd baby sleeping next to me in her little seat and she is 2 and half weeks old....but as far as them getting bigger, our son is 10 yrs. and our daughter is 13 yrs. and I SO MISS them being little...the time goes by SO fast. I just can't believe that my daughter is 13 already and I watch her change our new baby Trinity's diapers and it's just amazing...she was JUST that little it seems like. I would be lost wthout my kids...I'm litterally addicted to them...LOL.. and when they get older, yes, you can do fun stuff together...I LOVE shopping with my 13 yr. ld and we even share clothes now :) but...I also miss cuddling with her in bed. So for all of you new mommies out there, and Heidi, since this is your only child...TREASURE EVERY MINUTE!! take it from really won't believe how FAST time goes. I thank God daily for our 3rd little miracle!!

Hey everyone! I'm so happy! My 6 month old is starting to bounce up on his knees. I can't believe he's growing so fast. I'm so proud I just had to share! Soon my boys will be playing together. yay

Some people are a little cranky the last few days, how about we post some happy thoughts!


Jamie - November 4

I agree, I've been one of the cranky ones. Maybe it's PMS....Serenity is trying to roll over and's very cute, because she tries to do them both at the same time. She gets frustrated though, and ends up just taking a nap. LOL

I wouldn't give anything for my kids but my 4 year old in trying to drive me nuts and my 6 week old finds it uncomfortable after she eat with gas, I do like mother hood in my own way my only mistake I ended up alone doing by myself and i have Hi anxiety. Alot of times I feel that I hafta be there for her 24 seven, if i want to wash or any chores she want me to pick her up, how do I train a child to comfort herself when I'm busy? I wan't us to be happy because I love them, and I want to be a good mom. I even want another later but I just want to have the patience that most people have, but I'm sure most of you guys are married, I should have been but we where together at first but then the conflict between there dad left me alone. Over all I love being a Mom.

Since writing my last reply, things have changed dramatically! I LOVE BEING A MOM! Nadya has calmed down a lot. She's sleeping better, she's over her cold and she's a happy smiley baby, most of the time. She's only 7 weeks, but she's changed and learned so much already, I can't believe it! Last night, she was trying to have a conversation with me. How cute is that?! She was such hard work in the beginning, but now I feel that the good times are outweighing the bad, and that makes it all worthwhile. :)
