Last October 20, Michelle Madrigal and fiance Troy Woolfolk introduced their firstborn baby Anika Austin to the world. Michelle said that Anika means grace, favour, brilliance and sweet-faced.
4 days post partum… Still amazed at how our bodies go through these changes specially after giving birth. Slowly easing my way until I can start working out again. Motherhood is an amazing experience! Figuring out breastfeeding, sleepless nights, hunger cues and the lists goes on… we are sleep deprived (look at them eye bags) but like everyone says…… It is worth every minute! I wouldn't trade this for the world! My life has completely changed. And I'm blessed to have an amazing partner to go through it all @twoolf29 👨👩👧🍼👶🏻
Michelle’s first 10 days of being a mom isn’t easy for her. She even posted an Instagram photo with a caption, “Not gonna lie, I am exhausted from all the sleepless nights. Frustrated when I can’t seem to understand what she wants every time she cries. It’s been a roller coaster experience for me and sometimes I just cry to let it all out.”
It's been a week and I tell you… It hasn't been easy! Not gonna lie, I am exhausted from all the sleepless nights… Frustrated when I can't seem to understand what she wants every time she cries. Worried if I'm giving her enough milk, and somehow depressed when I'm not producing much. It's been a roller coaster experience for me and sometimes I just cry to let it all out. My hormones are still all over the place, BUT this little angel is keeping me sane at the same time. She taught me what UNCONDITIONAL love is. #motherhood
But after her hard times, she later on got the hang of being a full time mom. She said that just looking at her family makes it all worth it. She added that this is the reason why she wanted to be a better person each day.
This year, God has blessed me with the most amazing gift. They make my life colorful and I am forever grateful! Not a lot of people know how much this really means to me. • Today, I am beyond exhausted but looking at this little family of mine makes it all worth it. The reason why I want to be a better person each day. What are y'all thankful for? #thanksgiving2017 #1stphorm #1stphormathletesearch
