Molly Sims has now been a mom for nearly two months. It’s safe to say the model is both blissfully happy and thoroughly exhausted at this point!
“My first seven weeks as a mama have been both amazing and hard!” Molly Sims wrote on her personal blog early Thursday morning. “There’s a lot of sleep deprivation involved, but I guess that comes with the territory!”
Detailing the situation, the 39-year-old added she hasn’t turned to the help of nanny just yet, but is instead opting for the time-honored advice given to most new moms: “Brooks has been sleeping in 2 ½ to 3 ½-hour shifts, so I’ve been learning to nap when he naps.”
Gushing over the good parts of becoming a mother, Molly Sims added:
“I think that no matter how prepared you are—no matter how many hours you spend researching strollers, stocking up on organic baby food, and decorating the nursery—there’s simply nothing that can prepare you for the feeling that comes with holding your baby for the first time. Preparation is still important of course, but when you stare back at your baby’s little button nose, 10 perfect fingers and 10 perfect, little toes, maternal instinct kicks in and you’ve just got to start going with your gut!”
