// Becoming Mommy //

Never in a million years did I think I would be where I am today. 

Seeing a positive pregnancy test last November was the scariest thing in the world to me!

How was I ever going to fulfill this new role as teacher, comforter... mother? 
Kids were never my forte. 
But how lucky am I that I was able to carry a baby and give this tiny little bean life? 

And now here I am, cuddling a sleepy 2 week old that 
just needed some mommy snuggles,  while I type this with one hand :)
This is truly the best. 
It feels so incredible to know that God has so much trust in me, that he gave me this little blessing.

--------------------------------------

To my surprise, becoming this new role of mommy was just like second nature. 
Waking up every 2 hours to feed this tiny being is something I wouldn't give up for the world. 
It's something I completely cherish and always will.

I never thought I'd be okay with staying home, instead of going out.
I always thought I'd be sad when I wouldn't be able to go out at 1 in the morning
but as it turns out both Josh and I and baby boy are usually fast asleep come 1 am
and it's the best :)

Copeland is such a sweet, calm and loving baby. 
He has made this transition into mommyhood so easy. 
Don't get me wrong, he has his moments, but for the most part he is pretty dang easy.

Last night was a bit rough though and threw us off our schedule :(
Poor little guy kept throwing up/spitting up everything he had just ate!
*note to self: no more chili con queso for this breastfeeding mama*
It was the saddest thing!
And never did I ever think I'd be okay with someone throwing up all down my chest.
If I would have seen that happen to someone else last year, I probably would have thrown up myself.
But all I could think about was my poor little guy.
All I wanted was to comfort him and make him feel okay.

Becoming a mommy is seriously amazing.
The bond and love you have for this little person is so incredible. 

-------------------------------------

My favorite thing in the world is to sing to him!
Whether it be rocking him to sleep while singing lullabies or singing silly songs during playtime.
It's the best :)

Nursing is also my favorite part of the day/night. 
When he looks up at me, there is nothing sweeter.  

Everyday that passes is bittersweet. 
Watching him grow is amazing but knowing I'll never get that day back is sometimes hard to swallow.
When did I become so sappy!? ;) 

------------------------------------------

And I can't end this post without talking about this little guys daddy!
Josh has been loving his new role :)
Everyday he comes home from work, all he wants are baby kisses & cuddles from his little dude.
He has been so amazing with diaper changes, dinner making
and rocking Cope while I try to get a few hours of uninterrupted sleep.

-----------------------------------------

We are just taking all of this in and loving this whole family thing :)

Ahhh, it's the best. I love nursing my baby boy, too. There is something about the mama/baby connection, but the mama/SON connection is just... I'm convinced it's beyond comparison to anything else in this world. And I was the same way as you? Puke and poop? YUCK. It's amazing what I can talk about nowadays... during DINNER, at that... and not even flinch. Lol. Copeland is a lucky boy!!

My little one has been sick this past week, and I was having the same feelings about how amazing it is to be covered in vomit, and only care about the little person in your arms. Ahhh, motherhood.

Love the name Copeland.
He is precious.

Congrats Mama! Hope you are enjoying motherhood. I actually read this post when you actually posted it but got distracted and just wanted to come back and say that I LOVE the new blog name "Copeland & Co."
So cute!
