I know that the newborn stage is often seen as difficult and challenging and something to “get through,” but I happen to love it. Our third baby will soon be here and while I am certainly nervous about being a mama of three, I am REALLY looking forward to life with a newborn again. There is nothing in the world like a newborn baby and that short time in our lives. From the adorable puppy noises they make to falling in love all over again, I can’t wait!
10 Reasons I Love the Newborn Stage...
…and am looking forward to it again!
Falling in Love Again
There is nothing like falling in love with your newborn baby! I can’t wait to meet my 3rd little love…
Overly Tired, But Overjoyed
Yes, there is not a more exhausting time of life. But all of that is overcome by joy!
Snoozing All the Time
I’m sure I didn’t realize how much babies slept after my first was born, but with my second, I realized that they sleep ALL THE TIME! And it’s adorable… (Just remember this when they are awake and fussy at 3 a.m.!)
That New Baby Smell
Don’t lie! You totally love that new baby smell, too! :)
A New Perspective
When a new baby is born, everything is different. Suddenly you have a bright new perspective and it’s kind of amazing!
I know it’s hard at first, but nursing a new baby is such a special time! I’m certainly looking forward to this again…
There’s no better way to describe those little grunts and grumbles, don’t you think? I can’t wait!
There are few things I love more than a newborn baby strapped to my chest!
The Learning Curve
Each baby is different, and there is certain a learning curve that comes with a newborn. Figuring out a new little person is pretty amazing…
Visits from Family & Friends
I can’t think of a time in life when I’ve seen more family & friends in a matter of a few days/weeks. It’s exciting to introduce your new baby to the world!
