New parents, Katie and Jacob, welcomed baby Beckett into the world in the summer of 2022.
There’s a quote from Osho that says, “The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.” Becoming a parent is an adventure from the second the plus sign appears. You imagine the little fingers and toes and baby eyelashes. You wonder whose nose they’ll take after and the color of their hair. Will they be a ballerina or play piano? Endless daydreams of what could be. Yet nothing prepares you for the changes that happen once that miracle is here.
Parenthood can be scary and intimidating. Yes, the nights seem long and days short, but beyond lack of sleep, so much more happens. Especially in those first years, you experience holidays with new eyes and have a deeper appreciation for the little moments. It’s not just a new you that is born, but a whole new life too.
You only get to experience your babies for so long before they’re 18 and going off on their own, so hold them tight. Don’t blink. Enjoy every second.
