Yesterday Matthew, Mugsy and I took Grayson out for his first stroll around the block. That followed many discussions between Matthew and I and seeking the opinions of multiple health care professionals and my brother & sister-in-law (who have a little one, too).
Baby steps has been the recommended consensus – for me. So that I can build up my own confidence and comfort with my new role.
Today I am proud to say I took a few more baby steps.
Grayson and I strolled to the drug store and even stopped to get me a hot drink on the way.
Then when we got home I gave our baby boy a bath. My first time doing that on my own. It was a success.
I feel good about how these steps went today. One thing I do know is that it takes time to do these little steps…and there is only so much time between feedings, so small things will likely remain the norm for a while. And that is okay.
