If I could give one piece of advice to new moms, it would be to slow down and enjoy all the little moments while you can.
Right now my tummy is growling for lunch, I have errands to run, a condo long overdue for a clean, laundry to finish, and gifts to wrap. But I have a snugly baby asleep on my chest and he’s too precious to put down. I used to be one of those people who was always on the go, never much for being lazy on the couch. But these days I spend a lot of time cuddled up with Liam on the couch.
Babies grow up so fast and if you don’t pause life to snuggle once in awhile, you’ll be looking back at them as a teenager wondering where time went and wishing you had more time with them. And god forbid the unspeakable happens, you never know just how much time you have with your precious child(ren).
Your to do list will still be there tomorrow, but today take a break and enjoy the quiet moments.
