I get it
The first week we brought Grady home, I look at Josh and said, "We're not having any more." As I struggled through those first weeks of breastfeeding, I thought, "Why would anyone suffer through this more than once?" The after birth healing process was not fun to say the least, "One time is more than enough."
But now, I get it.
I understand why you have more than one baby and why you'd do it all over again in a heartbeat - even the really sucky parts. Because the joy that Grady brings outweighs all the terrible parts by a million. He is the product of Josh and me and I love him more than I ever thought possible. Everyday I get to wake up and see and feel our love in the form of a sweet baby boy. Seeing him grow and learn things feels like my greatest accomplishment. Having him look up from feeding and smile at me feels like I could die a happy and complete woman.
I totally get it.
I get why you would want to bring this joy and love into your life over and over again. But I don't know how it's possible to love another child this much. My heart already feels full.
