Hello! It’s been a while since we have introduced ourselves so follow along! My name is RossAnne and I am sure you can pick me out in our family picture. You got that right. I am a boy mom. In our family of seven there are five boys, my husband, and me! I love being a boy mom, but… I am rooting for myself because I recently gained a new daughter when my son got married last week and… a baby GIRL from our oldest son and his girlfriend. Let me tell you, I am already spoiling this little girl with all the things I never could as a boy mom. She is very loved by all the boys in the house.
You’ve been pregnant for nine months now and all you can think about is giving birth for the first time. Wondering, “how bad is this really going to be?” “Am I going to be able to do it?” The answer is of course! It is scary and uncharted territory for you, but you’ll push right through it. Baby is healthy, mommy is healthy, and the doctor gives the two thumbs up to go home. All of a sudden, you’re thinking, “hmm, maybe I’ll stay at this hospital forever.” Going home with baby for the first time can be more difficult than giving birth. You’ve often heard that newborns are easy, you’ve heard it said that “all they do is eat, sleep and poop.” Easy, right? Chances are it won’t seem that way at first. Knowing a little more on what to expect when baby comes home for the first time will help you feel a little less overwhelmed.
