4 Weeks Old

Yesterday my son turned 4 weeks. It still feels strange. I still haven't adapted to this new kind life.

There has been a strong battle in my heart for the past weeks. My love for art just wouldn't let go while all the time and energy had to be dedicated to this little angel.

So many thoughts are mixed up in my head right now and learning this new mommy job is very tough. It's the first exam in my life I have no book for. I wish I had gone to a "how to be a mommy" school. I don't think we even have one so it's a learn-as-you-go (not at all my favorite way).

Aw Meda! He is gorgeous!!! You will be fine with this new role in your life! It is an adjustment but these early months go by fast and you will wonder where the years went! Try not to worry, the older he gets the easier it will be to sneak a moment for your fabulous art!

he is adorable Meda...do not worry about how good a mother you are as long as he is loved the rest just falls into place. you will find time to craft again, but your son is only this age once, so treasure every bit of him at the moment. Take care of both of you Hugs Tania xoxo

Your son is so beautiful!
I completely understand how you feel. My only child is just a year old and he is the world to me.

It's not easy and sometimes frustrating when you want to get away from the baby's demands just for a short while.

When people tell you that it will get easier, it will. It takes a few months.

Babies love white noise & heartbeat sounds. I accidentally turned on the vent over the stove, my month old infant was instantly quiet & calm.

I turned the vent on high as he slept and I had a chance to catch up on email.

If your baby is unusually fussy, it could be the formula (if you're not breastfeeding). Switch to Sensitive (or Lactose free) formula first. If that doesn't work, try Alimentum.

Most of all, cherish these moments. Take lots of pictures. They grow up SO fast. My son was sitting up and scooting around by the time he was 7 months old. I had no idea that a tiny infant could go from a sleeping bundle of joy to a hilarious, talking, running boy who fills us with joy so so fast!

Thank you for sharing the photo! Take care of yourself!

Oh Meda, so so precious and sweetie it will get better and easier the first couple of months will probably be the hardest and than Iona will fall into his own little schedule and give mommy some me time enjoy him while he is small because they certainly do not seem to stay that way long.
Hugs

You have good friends to give such good advice. My baby went to sleep when I turned on the vacuum cleaner! My daughter in law got a machine that plays ocean sounds and that helped her baby sleep. It's tough those first few months. BIG HUGS! And it is true, the years fly by, my baby is now 36 years old and I have six grandchildren! Treasure these times.

Only your Faith in our Father can be a greater love than the love of a Mother with Child. You made me smile with your post ... it reminded me of my own feelings so long ago when my DS and DD were born. Just relax, open your heart to the incredible love to come ... and enjoy!

(((hugs)))
