First of all happy motherhood to everyone !!!
I was thrilled when I got to know that I am pregnant. I started loving my baby and looked for baby care books. I read articles on healthy diet, breastfeeding and baby care etc., I prayed, wished and hoped to have a healthy baby. I had a natural birth and the day my baby was born; it felt miraculous. The moment I looked at him that moment became so special to me. I had no idea that I can feel like this for anyone in this world.
I wanted to give best to my baby so I exclusively breastfed my baby till 6 months and I am weaning now in addition to breast milk.
The gift of becoming a mother has made me stronger, more compassionate, and selfless in so many ways. I can say motherhood has changed me completely. I was an outgoing person who used to hate sitting at home, and now I don’t crave to go out. There are days when I don’t even get out of the house. I no longer have a sensitive stomach. I have to be ready for whatever my baby throw at me and not get squirmish about it and if I was in the middle of eating, not lose my appetite. Sometimes when changing my baby’s diaper, he moves too much and then oops I just got it on my hands or dress. I learned to laugh more and be quick on my feet. These are learning opportunities for me, and I quickly learned what cleaning products works bests for every situation. I have become more giving, patient in every pursuit.
Whatever I do, wherever I go, I have “Johith” in my mind throughout. If I am going out shopping, I look for baby shops, or if it is a holiday, I research whether the place is suitable for my son.
Sometimes I did not get enough sleep. But when I realised that my baby loved me as much as I loved him. He has shown me what unconditional love is. That was pure happiness, and it motivates me to keep going.
Spending time with my baby is priceless. I am happy to watch him grow, and I can’t believe he is already one year old. A single word can not explain how a mother feels for her child. Being a mother, I would say, is the best job in the world. I will push through every hard thing life throws at me because I want to give my son the best life I can. My goal is to raise my son to be a good, kind, strong and successful person.
