I should mention that I didn't immediately have this overwhelming love for my daughter that I read and heard about. I knew she was my responsibility and I did what I was supposed to do. I took care of her. But the love in my heart didn't grow until she was probably about 2 months old. Call me selfish, but I have never loved unconditionally before. I guess I didn't know how and how selfless it was. I was hard for me emotionally to get nothing back from her after so many sleepless nights, hurt n*pples, emotional meltdowns, etc etc etc. She first smiled at me at exactly 1 month old, and that was the beginning of our love affair. By 2 months, I was hooked, and now my love for her grows daily.
So, join me on this journey of motherhood. It is an adventure like no other and I'm only at the beginning of it.
