When she was first born, she immediately started crying. After the doctor and nurses were finished with her, I got to hold her, and she was so perfect. It was amazing to think that I am her mother. Then the husband held her, and she immediately settled down. They both seemed so natural together and it felt like she knew immediately he was her dad.
In the past week and a half, I've been amazed at what our bodies can do and by the type of father my husband has become. Even though we have no clue what we are doing at times, it is such a blessing to navigate this new world of parenthood with the husband and know that we are in this together.
