Falling In Love with Your Baby Series: LaTorsha

I am excited to introduce Falling In Love with Baby Series.

I believe there is no other time in our lives as women 
where falling in love is instantaneous than the love we feel
 when we meet our baby for the first time.
Of course...sometimes falling in love with our baby
 is NOT so instantaneous and we have to work at it.
But the best part of falling in love is knowing that this kind of love is magic!
It is unconditional and pure...
it is experienced between a mother and her baby...
And it is beautiful....
i didn't understand that until i had 
Baby Pancakes and i wanted other mothers to share 
with me their thoughts and experiences on Falling In Love with their Baby...
I hope you fall in love with their stories as much as i did...


A Love I NEVER Knew

You hear about it.

You read about it.

You see it from afar.

Yet, you never know the love that you possess deep down on the inside
 until you birth a life for yourself.  In an instant, you go from being the number 
one person in your own life to a distant runner up.  No more just living it up for you.
 No more wondering aimlessly without a specific purpose of how the days may go. 
Life has been somewhat planned for the next 18 years or so.

BUT yet, it is a precious love that surpasses all others. 
Yes, even that between a man and a wife cannot compete 
between the bond of a mother and child. Unconditional love is what I’m talking about.

The type of love that makes you stay up all night laying on the floor beside a crib, 
because you want to be there to comfort a cough, fever, toothaches, and even a scary nightmare. 
This love I never knew has caused me to do things I never knew I could.
 It is like I have the strength and senses of superwoman when I sense something is wrong.
 I can stretch a dollar a mile long to ensure his needs are met. 
And when I say stretch a dollar, I mean give up things that used to stand for so much to me.

This love has made me laugh, smile, cry, and at times scream!!

A love I NEVER knew.

First words.

Potty training.

Learning to walk.

Singing the alphabet.

Counting to 10.

Heading to preschool.

The list can never be complete of the MANY, MANY milestones that a child will meet. 
To some the memories will fade, or it will just be a note in a doctor’s chart,
 or just another event that takes place in the lives of all children.

BUT in the heart of a mother, each moment leaves a mark 
on her heart that is forever engraved and wrapped in unconditional love.

This love I NEVER knew until I became a mom. And that day changed my life…………
for the better.

Best wishes Mrs Pancakes as you enter into motherhood.
 It is life changing, but very rewarding. 
I pray you embrace the unconditional love that is waiting for you.


Latorsha, is married and a mom of one. 
She enjoys motherhood and all that life has to offer. 
She loves to write, when time allows, 
and you can find her lurking around on
