It has passed 2 months, 12 day`s and couple of hours, when he came to this world. Planned, waited and loved before he was born. Around 9 pounds and 20 inches long. Little miracle, who needs protection. Second time in my life. Last time 15 years, 5 months and 26 days ago. Everyday life changed by blink of an eye. Now there`s someone additional in our family. Someone, You have to take care of and who doesn`t survive without parental support and protection. The most important person in his life is mom... Mom, my wife, most beautiful woman in the world. An angel with really big heart. The pregnancy and child birth was a real challenge for You. The same applies to all mothers and this is the reason, why there is nothing equal to mothers love.
Changes in life
As mentioned, everyday life changed by blink of an eye. You have to be awake at nights, cause he is just not sleeping and want`s to eat. Here big bow before my dearest wife, who tries to make everything, that I could sleep without interruption. Compared to her, I can`t have a small nap during day at work. Thank You my darling once more 🙂 But for now, we are adapted to new situation.
I have red from different magazines, internet comments and other sources, that now it`s finished with sports. That all free time is now consumed by baby. Part of this is true, I will not argue. Just, there are some things, You can do, to be actve.
As fresh air is good for baby and for You, we are going everyday for 6 to 7 miles walks. We make them as cardio workouts with low heart rate. The walk with average speed of almost 4 miles an hour is great cardio. And You are pushing also a stroller in front of You. Sometimes I make these walks alone. My angel has to get time for a sleep and rest (She is giving it to me at night, remember 😉 ). Or She uses that time for other things a woman want`s to do or gives her 100% attention to our 10 years old daughter. So, there is always time for being active and the child is not an obstacle to do that. And to move in fresh air is more enjoyable, then treadmill or elliptical in the gym.
There is full evolutionary theory - You either adopt to environment or You will extinct. I choose adaptation. With less night sleep, with early before work gym, with less quality time for each- other. But, child birth and the adorable baby boy is damn worth all that. Just this one second, when he is smiling to You, is worth all the need for life rearrangement.
I can say, who want`s to find solution will find it. Together with my wife we choose finding solutions.
