Our First Hello

A new year...a new batch on Mindful Motherhood moments to bring to you each and every month. The style of the graphics are a wee bit different, much more in line with our new look on social media thanks to our rockstar designer Tiffany!, but the sentiment is the same.

You matter

You're important

You are enough

And you are so incredibly and deeply loved.

This month, we are reflecting on the very first hello that we had with our babies. Take a moment this month and write it down...in a journal...on a scrap piece of paper. Sit and write about those first kicks, hiccups and the butterflies you felt when baby was first saying hello.

With my first pregnancy, I remember that first kick very distinctly. I was sitting in a chair at the salon, waiting for my hair to be dyed by my ever lovely stylist, April. I thought maybe it was gas, but then it happened again and again.

Hand to my stomach, I waited and sure enough...he was kicking. I was 14 weeks along, has just been in the hospital for a big bleed, so these first few kicks were incredibly welcome. Back then, we called him Bug. Now, we call him Owen.
