Hi ladies,
Being a first time mom can be overwhelming and extremely joyous all at the same time.
What were some of your favorite things about becoming a first time mom?

    Great question!  I loved the softeness of my daughter's skin and that baby fresh smell.  Also loved the pure delight and joy as she explored her world!

    Absolutely everything! I think babies are the biggest miracle God can give us. I especially love the way their little fingers grasp yours so tightly.

    I loved how soft their hair and skin are.  How good they smell.  When they stare at you.  I loved nursing.  Holding my baby and going outside with my baby so everyone can see him lol.  There are lots more.

    I loved a lot of things. My baby girl is just 4 1/2 months old... I knew I would love her more than I've ever loved anything but when people say there is nothing like a mothers love... that is so true! I cant even begin to describe the overwhelming feelings of love and joy and happiness I have when I look into her big blue eyes and when she smiles up at me and how when she is crying I just have to pick her up and shes okay again when no one else can calm her down. (that can also be a pain sometimes) lol it makes me feel good though just knowing how much she needs me. I loved breast feeding I did it for the first 3 months and stopped because I went back to work. I loved how we bonded while she ate. I love the baby smell and experiencing all her 1st things with her. Like her smiling and laughing and rolling over, trying to talk, splashing in the bath tub, grabbing onto things, there are so many little things I love...Too many to name them all! I love when she falls asleep on my chest and cuddling with her. I love the way she looks at her daddy.

    Everything of course, but especially just cuddling and watching them sleep. It's something with the second I haven't been able to do as much and I really miss it.
