I love the baby stage. I love a tiny newborn, although I’m more than happy to get out of that newly postpartum stage myself. I love a baby to cradle in my arms and wear in wraps and that starts sitting up and then crawling. I love it when he starts to grin at me when I walk into the room and the way he crinkles his nose when he smiles and tries to climb up my leg if I’ve been gone for a while (or if it hasn’t been that long- getting snacks takes a long time in baby time).
If you are in one of those stages of motherhood don’t give up on yourself. You’re not a bad mama. God has a plan that’s beyond what we can imagine. He promises that He will never quit working in our lives- or in the lives of our children.
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Philippians 1:6
