@MrsAKSkier: Congratulations on your pregnancy! Wishing you lots of possitive engergy for an awesome no PPD delivery. Thats really awesome about your friends sister, Thats really great she was able to go on and have more children without as any issues. Thank you, he’s pretty handsome i think.
@FoxyBride14: I’m super thankful i’m having children in a time where it isn’t as taboo to talk about it. (though it still is taboo) I’m glad your mom went on to have a sibling, i couldn’t imagine life without mine, which is why we want Ryland to have a sibling as well.
@MrsBonJovi: Awe… thank you, thats amazingly sweet. I’ve tried really hard to do lots of photoshoots with our photographers. I figure even if in that moment i am not appreciating it, or feeling connected ONE DAY i can look back on these photos and know we did share something, photo evidence so i can remember how small and amazing he is. That last photo on the bottom is a proof photo that was taken this week, at 2 months old. xo
@howsweetitis: I wonder if its a first time baby thing? that women suffer PPD most often with their first baby? Our of curriousity how is DH’s relationship with his mom. I have super down guilty days where i think my son will somehow know how i felt in his first weeks and will reent me. 🙁
@allyfally: Awe… thank you, thats super sweet of you. He is a very beautiful baby i think.
@jessdoxy: Oh wow, its amazing who you can find on the bee. You specialize in PPD? That must be very interesting. Thank you for the link, and the reading material. I try to do small things every day to try and connect, lay on the floor with him, bath time, sing a song. I feel as though i am just ‘going through the motions’ i’m hoping its one of those things that if i do it long enough it will work. “fake it till you make it?”
I have a question, i was reading someplace that if your baby doesn’t latch for breastfeeding for the first 3 weeks the risk of PPD is much higher. my son was born at 37 weeks and wasn’t able to lacth of breastfeed for his first 5 weeks of life. Being stuck on a pump trying to make him food and feeling so frustrated that he wouldn’t latch i feel really is what pushed me over the brink of ‘tired sad first time mom’ to PPD, i dont even want to tend to you when your crying. Have you ever heard of that?
@candc13: Congrats on your son! how lovely that you now have a boy and a girl. months hey? Thats a long time… as the pace i’m going i wonder if that’s a realistic time line for myself as well. I’m super happy to hear that you connected well with you son. Gives me hope! How long did you wait between having DD & DS?
@wrkbrk: haha yes… his face is adorable, I’ve attatched a few more because… well who doesn’t like to show off what they’ve made? 🙂
@Evie19: Thank you for taking the time to write me a little note of support its very kind. xo
@Tyme4AWedNN2014: I agree its very taboo to admit to people you dont overwhelmingly love and enjoy mothehood. I run into people when i’m shopping who stop and ask: “first baby? Isn’t it just simply the best? its the best days of your whole life right now enjoy them” I just want to reply with… “fun fun motherfucker” lol. It doesn;t help that my son cries for more than 50% of this days and at almost 9 weeks old he still sleeps in 1 1/2 intervals durring the night. I feel like if i could get more sleep and top off the tank i would feel like a whole new person. Thank you for the offer to privately chat, thats really sweet. I love how carring the bee can be. xo
& as pomised a couple more. First one is one of his newborn photos, The bottom one is just a proof from this week but its his valentines photo. Which i thought was adorable. So ignore the blurryness. 🙂
