We had our first baby 3 weeks ago... so far it's been a totally surreal and amazing journey.
I feel like life has so much more meaning now.
The problem is that I hear other people talk about loving their children with a depth of feeling they haven't experienced before, well, I love this baby totally, but I'm not overcome with emotion all the time. The reason this bothers me is that I am a very passionate person, so I guess I'd feel this depth that I hadn't experienced before (like other people say).
The truth is that I think that the reason for this is that I'm just too caught up in keeping her fed, burping, clean and hopefully asleep ;p to really have much time yet to really FEEL much. I did at first (the birth was the most amazing thing I've ever experienced.
I'm happier and feel more complete than I have ever felt though, so I don't know...
Do the bonds and feelings with your baby deepen and change?
I mean I love her a lot so I wouldn't think much of it if I just wasn't the sort of person to get all emotional, but i am...
Is there something wrong with me?
