What are you excited about?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I get random moments where I get so excited about certain aspects of having a new baby.

Right now I am suddenly SO excited to have a little bald baby! I was looking at pics of my DD from last summer... she was 11 months old but SO bald. Now she's got plenty of hair. I realize I miss the baldness!! The feathery soft first bits of hair!

What aspects of new baby are you most excited about?

The newborn smell
Wearing a tiny baby in my moby wrap again
Nursing a newborn
Birth & seeing them for the first time
Those funny newborn faces and noises...

I could go on!

I love their tiny little fingers and toes and all the cute chubbiness. I love how incredibly soft their skin is.

-BREASTFEEDING! Can't wait. I miss it!

-Baby laughter- DS still laughs a lot but those 6-month giggle fests were so much fun.

-Wearing the baby in my Moby wrap, as a pp said

-Seeing DS and the baby together

The magic of birth, sleeping in bliss together after all that hard work, slinging, nursing, coos & smiles, seeing my other kids fall in love, the feeling it brings between dh&me ~ when you both look at the baby and then each other and no words are needed , cute baby clothes, baby laughter, thigh rolls, big cloth diaper butt, raspberries on the tummy, when you get your babe to smile while nursing and they can't keep the latch because the corners of their mouth turn up and loose suction and milk leaks out. Oh I could go on......

Having #1, so I'm mostly excited to start showing!

I'm also excited to do babywearing as much as possible.

Things that are exciting to me:

-Getting to use all my slings and wraps again.
-That new baby smell. My littlest one smells like a toddler now. . . ew.

WRAPPING! I can't wait to use all my wraps more frequently (and buy more wraps, heheh)
Having a baby that wants to be held all the time instead of a "put me down!" toddler.

I am really looking forward to a soft bald head. That was one of my favorite things with my son. I loved to rub my lips across the back of his head and feel the peachy fuzz. Also, just admiring the tiny-ness of everything...the toes, fingers, ears, etc. And, I really love that look of total adoration that comes from a newborn, like you can do nothing wrong and your babe just loves you completely.

I am looking forward to a lot of things, but most of all, I am excited to see DS as a big brother. He is so, SO excited for this baby, so much more than DH or I, it seems. I absolutely love seeing it through his eyes. As far as the baby though, can't wait to BF for the first time (it took me FOUR flippin' years to get off the meds that kept me from BFing DS) and hold a tiny baby again. I can't say I've missed out on snuggling - DS is a champion cuddle-monster.

I am so excited to nurse a newborn. I love it when your boob is bigger than their head and you wonder how that tiny mouth is going to latch onto your big nipple and take in any areola. I love the feeling of letdown when you are full. It is such a sense of relief. And how they grow just from mother's milk. It is amazing stuff!!

For dd to be a big sister.
To wear this baby more. And to use a moby wrap in the early days.

And the falling asleep while nursing and having milk dribble down the side of its face, and the not wanting to let go even though they're done and asleep

baby big eyes! DS had the hugest eyes, and it was sooo cute. (his eyes are still great - watch out girl mamas)

and baby neck snuggles, don't you love it when they snuggle in?

Oh, yes. I had forgotten about that sweetness. It's so adorable.

This might sound weird, but I really am excited about actually giving birth. I really love labor and birth. Childrearing is the scariest part for me!
