My mom told me the first four weeks are the hardest, just get through those and things will continue to get better. Well, at five weeks things are much better. It's so hard in the begining not getting any sleep and trying to get used to the "new" hang of things. I still have my moments, but overall I am so happy. Nothing can prepare you for being a mama. There are times when I wish I was better, but there are also times when I am so proud of myself. We have been in public during screaming fits and we have also had perfect days out. I've LOVED all of the moments in the past five weeks and wouldn't trade them for anything. We've been getting out more, going for walks, meeting lots of family and enjoying lots of snuggles.
