guest post: my favorite moment during my very first week of motherhood, by Joanna Goddard

Tuesday, November 8

 So beyond thrilled to have Joanna from the widely read and beloved A Cup of Jo guest posting today! {I'm pinching myself!} Thank you so much for sharing Joanna!
My favorite moment during my very first week of motherhood: When I first saw Toby's face.
After nine months of pregnancy, I felt my heart swell a million times over as I finally looked into my baby boy's squinting little eyes. I just couldn't believe that he was looking right back at me--his mama!!! What was he thinking during his first moments alive? I just stroked his head and cooed at him and told him how much I loved him. Surrounded by bustling nurses and my excited picture-snapping husband, I only had eyes for our little one, and I felt so full of love for everyone and everything. As I wrote in my birth story, I would have a million babies just for that moment.

P.S. For a good read, be sure to check out Joanna's Motherhood Mondays - a weekly series about what it's *really* like to be a new mom!

I think becoming a new mommy seems very scary. But for some reason, hearing it from other people makes it much more exciting and not so scary. Thanks for sharing! :)
