Some great advice I received when I was a “new mom,” was to try and enjoy each moment with my baby. Below are a few tips to help you enjoy your little one. I am a mom to a 21-month-old, and I can’t believe that he is already almost two. The first year was tough, feeling sleep deprived, and having to care for another person that was completely dependent on me was so exciting and exhausting all in the same breath.
The second year has been filled with challenges of an “almost terrible two-year-old”, and trying to set boundaries, yet still let him explore the world. But every day has been an adventure and I loved every minute of the smiles, giggles, and the first steps, and words. And I am really enjoying the innocence of childhood, and it amazes me.
It has been so rewarding watching my son develop into a little being with thoughts and a cute personality as he explores his environment. I love the “wows”, when he sees something new and exciting. I certainly don’t know everything about parenting, and I just try to be a good mom. But when I am having a “mommy stress moment”, I try to remember why I love my little man, and how much I enjoy being a mom!
