Six weeks has been a big turning point for me. The first month I honestly didn't know how I was going to balance this new baby, my job, our home and my baby-daddy. There have been many breakdowns, many sleepless nights and many times I was crying right there along with Charlie. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed. Babies are HARD, people. And this is coming from someone [who thought] they were more prepared than ever and who has wanted a baby since she was twelve—
I think there was one point around three weeks where I considered returning him to the hospital.
Thank goodness I didn't because this week I have fallen hard for this little turkey. He has definitely changed our lives, and although this is the hardest thing i've ever done-it is the best thing I have ever done. I feel so blessed to be his mom and munch on him whenever I want.
I love you, Charlie boy.
