It's hard to believe that today is my due date and yet I've held my baby in my arms for three weeks. And it's hard to believe that three weeks have gone by already since Sawyer was born. My pregnancy weight is already gone. And gone are all the pregnancy aches and pains. I get a strange pang of sadness and emptiness when I touch my belly. It's weird how I could feel so miserable while I was pregnant, but feel so sad about not being pregnant now. All these hormones have done a number on me this time.
I love newborns. I love the way Sawyer curls up in my arms and drift off to sleep on my chest. I love the way his eyes flutter when he sleeps and the constant change of expressions on his face. This is what true love is.
