But the best and most helpful gift was the letter she wrote inside a book on breastfeeding. As I'm nearing the end of this pregnancy (46 days to go!), i'm feeling anxious and terrified of labor/delivery. Her words are exactly what I needed to hear that I wanted to share some of it with you dear readers.

"There is a quote I read that I didn't fully get until I had kids.
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
When your little baby comes-- you will undergo a transformation of the person you were, to the wife you are, to the mom you need to be and the little girl you wish you still were. You have to find yourself again, to balance all these things and new emotions. It will be hard but it is the greatest experience on earth!"
for those who have children, what advice can you give us first time mamas? i'd love to hear!
