Had I known that I will go into labor last week, I would have hibernated for days prior to it. Giving birth is truly hard work. I applaud all moms out there for that. It's much like running a long and painful marathon that doesn't seem to end... And then you hear the baby squeal. Pure bliss! He's born!
I was overjoyed the first time I held little Renzo in my arms... How could something so tiny give so much happiness in plain sight? The feeling was just indescribable.
I am now officially a mom. Sleepless nights begun when I went into labor. Renzo stayed in our room at the maternity unit. I breastfeed while the hubby changes the diapers. We were on 24-hour duty since he arrived.
Renzo, as expected with newborns, has an erratic sleep-wake cycle. Nights have been turned into days and vice versa. Sleep deprivation at its best. I have actually lost track of time. Sometimes, not even sure what day it is or was...
Yet, I'm just simply happy... Happy and thankful for Renzo and everything he is and will be.
