Just imagine that I said the title in a husky whispery voice :P
I must confess..... I didn't bond with Zoe right away. I did love her. I loved her ever since that 6w u/s when we saw that little heart beating away.... but I dunno... just a bond didn't happen right away.
With being SO tired and worn out, all I wanted to do was sleep and never being around a newborn before and suddenly having one, I dunno, it just took me a while to accept this new reality.
How crazy is that, I wanted this more than anything, had 9 months to prepare for it, and still wasn't entirely prepared lol. I guess no new mother is really all that prepared for it.
And plus, never being around a newborn before... I had this fantasy of how things were going to be. That Zoe was going to be a great content little baby that rarely cried. AHAHAHAHAHAHA
*ahem* Anyway... yeah, that fantasy was shattered!
I'd often worry at first if something was wrong with her b/c she would fuss so much. Of course I quickly realized, nope, nothing wrong. She's just being a baby :)
Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there.
And again, Don't buy new newborn and 0-3m clothes!!! We didn't even have a lot of newborn size stuff and Zoe still only wore most of them only once and a few others (that were slightly larger) twice.
Go in to a consignment shop and I bet you most of those newborn clothes have only been worn once or twice, if at all.
That is def where we are going to be getting a new LO's 0-3m clothes *nodnod*
Zoe is awake, gotta watch how to make roast beef before she starts getting fussy hehe.
