Today is just under three months since Coco's birth.
It finally feels as if I am finding a way back to myself again. Coco and I have been almost like "one" for last 11 weeks. We have spent most of our day and night together. I am happy when I am with her... and I can see her eyes filled with sparkles when she is with me too. Last 11 weeks also have been very consuming both emotionally and physically... constantly feeding, rocking, changing diapers and doing laundry for Coco. But now she is 11 weeks... I can sense the big change in her. Her schedule is becoming more regulated (she is almost sleeping through the night... crazy!) and she is becoming more and more like a baby instead of a newborn.
... and her changes are helping me to step outside of comfort of the mama shield. I got my hair cut little more than a week ago and doing more small outings just with Roo. Today I stepped out for the first time to take a yoga class. It was such a rejuvenating hour and half. To focus on my own body... that is just me. I did yoga during my pregnancy but now I know how different it feels to simply carry my own body... lighter and more open for challenges.
Everyday something changes and I am glad that I noticed this change tonight.
