Nine Months Postpartum (Laura)

Well, Lucy turned 9 months old yesterday. They say “9 months up and 9 months down” when it comes to the baby weight, but I’m not buying it. It took me a lifetime to prepare for being a mother- how can I just expect to go back to “Old Laura” 9 months after the event? I’m still getting used to the new me, and so far I don’t like her all that much, physically. But New Laura is quite a girl. She’s stronger, smarter and a little more balanced than Old Laura. I guess any body that can carry a human life inside it is never really ugly, is it? I just have to keep reminding myself, every single hour of every day. I’m beautiful and I created life.

Love,

New Laura and Lucy

    The body of a maiden and the body of a mother are very differnt things. Motherly is beauty manifested in the flesh!

    Look at you, Mama! I think you look great for being 9 months PP. My Dr. said the same thing, 10 months on 10 months off. My little girl will be 9 months next week, we’ll see what happens after that, maybe it’s magic =)! In the meantime, look at that beautiful, happy, thriving baby girl! Give yourself and her a great big hug and tell both of you how beautiful and amazing the female form truly is!
