My Experience Of The First Week With A Newborn

Ebin finally arrived and tomorrow marks one week of having him here. I was expecting absolutely no sleep, a sore, worn out body, and crying. Lots and lots of crying, coming from me might I add. That's not how it's been though. I am tired and a little sore but all newborns do is sleep, eat, and poop. I've realized that you have lots of time to do other things too if you really wanted to because newborns sleep so much.

I feel like these weeks were he still sleeps 18+ hours a day are some of the easiest days. It's definitely an adjustment but you don't have to worry about entertaining an older baby all day. For all you moms out there that are worried you're gonna be a hot mess after your baby is born like me…. don't fret. It's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

The First 10 Days Home With Your Baby

Time is finally ticking down and it's getting closer and closer to bringing our little bundle of joy home. I'm as ready as I'm going to be but that doesn't make me any more nervous. It's all getting so realistic! Today as I was looking through Pinterest I stumbled across this post from Glamomamas. I've been reading a lot of these types of posts about what the first couple weeks will be like. I really like this specific post because it paints a realistic picture. How it explains nail care and feeding and adjusting to the new life is easy for me to understand even though I haven't been through it yet.
