Week 9: Pursuit of the Perfect Postpartum Body


My sweet baby has started rubbing my skin as I nurse her. I can feel her tiny hand move back and forth along my love handles and sometimes she wedges her little hand into my armpit for comfort, as my bulging breast feeds her life sustaining nutrients.

Her other hand grasps a fist full of my shirt as if she wants to pull me closer, look me in the eyes, and level with me:

Listen up, this is important, I need you. You are exactly perfect for me. Not only do you make sure I am fed and changed, you protect me. You provide for my emotional, mental, social needs as well. I get so excited when you look me in the face and smile and coo, I try to mimic your mouth and eyes. I love your smell and can definitely tell when you aren't the one holding me, sometimes I cry about it because I just want you. You are the one I love most, you are the one I have known the longest, you are my comfort. I can't do this on my own, I am so grateful I have you. 
Thank you for being there for me every moment of everyday. Thank you for caring about my wellbeing. Thank you for worrying about my development and growth. Thank you.
I care about you too. Your wellbeing, your mental state, your happiness. There isn't much I can say to you right now, but if I could articulate my thoughts I would tell you that you are perfect. I would tell you how thankful I am that you carried me all those months and let me grown inside you. Sharing your nutrients, freely giving me your flesh and blood. I love every bit of you and I especially love these love handles, they feel so nice.

 For most of us there is definitely an insufficient amount of sleep. Always.

When baby comes out and we gage whether that baby is good enough by if they sleep well. I guess you would describe every single one of my kids as bad kids/sleepers. For years I have woken up multiple times a night to either comfort a screaming child, or to return a child back to their bed who has been in my bed for who knows how long.

I just found out that one of my friends has lost most of her vision permanently in one eye due to a stroke.

My eyes, my vision, I totally take it for granted, I just expect them to show up for me daily and do what I need. In fact most of the time the notice I give my eyes are looking at the color, or wishing my eyelids weren’t so thick so I could put eyeshadow on differently.
