Some are good, some are great and some can be bad especially if you have had the kind of night when your child/children have had you up for most of it!! Each morning you are never quite sure how the day will turn out, even if you have a rough idea of what you hope to achieve because I find that most days, despite following a similar and mostly predictable pattern, often have moments of unpredictability.
I think the morning that I was faced with the most amount of uncertainty since becoming a parent, was that first one after you bring your newborn home. I remember waking up, having already been up during the night feeding, to see my new bundle of joy asleep in his moses basket and feeling a bit over whelmed. This was it, no visitors were around, no hospital staff: just Burton, Daddy and I! Although knackered and still a bit shell shocked, I was still in a state of euphoria so I didn't really mind feeling like a zombie!
This was taken early on Burton's first morning at home with his mummy and daddy: he didn't know us, we didn't know him. We were all still finding our way as a family of three, but it was a perfect morning!
Jenson's first morning at home was also perfect as we adjusted to being a family of four, but it was different because I knew what to expect this time and those lazy mornings in bed which I had with Burton I never experienced with his baby brother, because I had another child to look after too. Nevertheless, here is my second born taken on his first morning at home.
Still feeling shell shocked but knowing that eventually those long nights would become come better one day, because I had experience of having been a mummy before.
Those first mornings are magical aren't they? And how quickly we forget them too!
