I received this matching shirt and onesie from my MIL when I was pregnant. When I opened it I laughed because it’s something I had totally wanted to buy but hadn’t yet. It’s crazy how fast those mama bear instincts kick in. I remember being in shock when I found out I was finally pregnant. And then immediately was worried about every little thing. When should I tell my friends and family? How should I tell them? Should I keep drinking coffee? Can I really not eat this sandwich? Why am I so tired? Why don’t I feel nauseous? I mean the list goes on from day one of finding out I was pregnant…and it just continues! Every day I’m constantly worrying whether or not I’m doing enough every day… is Kensley developing on track, is she eating enough, is she cold, did she nap well, etc., etc. Let’s face it, my life now is basically worrying from one thing to the next.
I honestly believe every mom is a mama bear. We do SO much for our littles. The constant worrying which leads to research, the working to provide or staying home full time, we moms take it all on and then some. But despite it all… the worrying, the frustration, the million cups of coffee, I think we all have to agree that it is SO worth it. There is nothing I have ever been more proud of than being Kensley’s mom. Starting from day one there is nothing that I wouldn’t do for my little girl. I recently posted on my personal Instagram account a quote a from another new mom that I resonate with so much.
“Never thought I’d post such a vulnerable pic as this, but nothing has ever felt more right and more natural than taking care of my little girl. Becoming a mother hasn’t felt like some huge, transformational moment for me (besides giving birth haha). Instead, it feels like she’s always been here somehow, like she’s always been a part of me – almost like I don’t know how yesterday existed without her. It’s amazing how you can love someone so much, I now get the privilege of understanding a mother’s endless love.” -Jade Tolbert
This picture of us is the first time we wore the matching shirt and onesie! The onesie is size 6 months and I’ll be so sad when she outgrows it (which is any day now). For all the other mama bears out there interested, you can find this cute mommy & me outfit on Etsy and rock it like me & Kensley! I’m not sure what specific shop, but there’s are SO many on there to chose from that you can find this and similar designs. 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Let me know in the comments what makes you feel like a mama bear!
