Nerves are crazy with our first babies, aren't they? One of my very, very, very favorite images in this set is toward the end, it's the image of her anticipating and looking like, "oh dear...what in the world have I gotten myself into"? If I'm being really honest, I thought that very same thing for at least 6 months after my kids were born. I even asked my husband several times the first week they were home, if he thought the hospital would let us bring them back. Funny how those nerves sneak up on us.
Next time you see a new mom, pat her on the back and tell her what a great job she's doing. It's a tough job...but it's the single most rewarding job we could ever have.
