I just had my baby!

New Mom, 2nd time, third or so forth.The feeling is irreplaceable. Such a gifted moment!

As I woke up in complete shock, yet humbled  with gratitude, OMG  I’m a Mother again.

This precious baby is mine!!?

So many emotions were running through my mind. But all overpowering with an overwhelm of love!

Musaee unlike his brother only kept me in Labor for 6 hours and 3 pushes. 23 hours for my first.The moment I held my little man, my whole world shifted. The Me now, We plus he.

Blessed, nothing more I could say.

Breastfeeding was new, adjusting was challenging, but I wanted the best nutritional benefits for him.  Re-learning, his sleeping and feeding schedule, the proper way to breastfeed, the proper nutrition for myself. Needless to say and for a whole other article breastfeeding is a skill, that many are misinformed about.

5 pounds, 12 oz, Musaee was the last day at the hospital. Scared Yes, but determined to keep breastfeeding I was!

Leaving St. Joseph Hospital, in Burbank, CA on 11-20-16.I was sweep with many emotions. It was 14 years since having a child. I basically had to learn all over the world of Newborn and being a Mom.  However, I was ready nonetheless.  I was ready to take on the new found life  and role. Besides having to adjust the car seat for a few minutes, we were on our way, with our precious cargo, to face the world with this new found love and life. We took a quick pit stop at Walmart, ( a families most visited store). Musaee and I stayed in the car.

Then it hit me, woah girl your a mother, you are responsible for this baby, despite your life state right now. Emotions I didn’t even know I had came from all over. I wanted the best for my baby, the very best!

I didn’t realize right away, these emotions were normal for mothers after birthing a child.

Arriving at our Home, in Van Nuys, CA at the time. We got upstairs, settled, yet the emotions hadn’t subsided yet.

Musaee Mykhal Mcgee, My new Inspiration.

How did you feel when your first brought your baby home?
