I am so happy to announce that I have given birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy. Meet Christian Peter Attipa. He was born on 12/12-17 at 7:13 pm at 7.4 ounces.
The delivery process was intense, but a lot easier than my first time. Since my son was born on Frank Sinatra’s birthday, during his delivery the doctor told us to play Frank Sinatra music. After 45 minutes of pushing, my son finally came out. The most interesting part of this story is the song that was playing was “My Way” when he arrived to this world. The Doctor said…lets hope he comes out to this song. Literally….Christian came out to the last two words to the song…MY WAY. It was such a magical moment and I wish we filmed it because it was something that you only see in the movies.
So what is it like being a mother of two? I wish I could say it’s a piece of cake….but it’s the complete opposite. It is very very challenging. I am overwhelmed on who I need to give more attention to. Collette, Christian or my dog Duke? It seems like everyone wants attention from me and I have no idea how to handle it. I feel like I am failing as a mother by not giving my 100 percent to Collette and Christian. Not to mention, it’s been one week since my delivery and I am still in my recovery process. What us women go through…we are superhuman!
Regardless of how difficult it is, every single time I look at Christian or Collette I forget my pain and struggles. It’s the strangest thing, you will be in chaos and the second your child looks at you and smiles you forget all your pain and worries.
The past week, I have been very fortunate to have my close family helping me out with my every needs. It definitely takes a village to raise two kids. Thank God for my husband, mom and mother in law. They have been so helpful and I couldn’t imagine doing all this by myself.
No matter how difficult my duty as a mother gets, it’s the most rewarding job that I have ever had. I never thought I would love being a mother so much. I can’t wait to see what 2018 holds for all of us.
If any moms are reading this post, please leave comments below on how I can handle two children. Would love to hear your thoughts.
LOVE ALWAYS, DIANA XOXO
