After a long 41 weeks and 3 days, my baby girl finally made it into the world. I would now like to officially introduce you to my love, my heart, and my soul,
Words cannot express how much love and joy you have brought me the moment I heard you cry. I never knew how much I could love someone wholeheartedly until Reem was born. It’s seriously indescribable; there truly is no love like mother’s love. I would do just about anything for this little lady.
For those who are debating whether or not to have a baby, my advice is to JUST DO IT! You won’t regret it, I promise. I can tell you that it’s the most physically and emotionally tiring thing I’ve ever done, but it was so so worth it. You have to experience it for yourself!
And this is coming from a woman who has been putting off the idea of having a baby for a while because I was afraid of changing my lifestyle, because I still wanted to travel more, and because…well, I didn’t know if I wanted to be a mother. But boy, am I ever glad I snapped myself out of that spell and went for it. My baby girl is here, and all I know is my whole world has changed for the better.
Reem was only 3 days old when these pictures were taken at the hospital. If your hospital offers a similar Newborn Photoshoot, I would highly recommend you sign up for it. These are some of my favorite maternal moments that I will cherish forever. You can tell I tried to get my tired self together for these pictures, and I think that’s why I love them – they are simple yet so meaningful.
