There is something so magical about those first moments after giving birth to a new baby. The falling-in-love hormone known as oxytocin is at an all-time high and the rush of calm and sweet relief that sweeps over you is nothing short of a real-life miracle. Those feelings of meeting a new little person — your new little person — are unparalleled to basically any other that you will ever experience. It’s a shame that moment can’t be bottled up and replayed forever.

Fortunately, many mamas will forever remember those first words they shared with their babies. Sometimes those first phrases are sweet, sometimes they are hilarious, and sometimes they are just filled with pure and simple relief.
