Honey James Huff was born on Tuesday, May 11. This news was met with lots of joy. Sadie couldn’t wait to share the photos of her daughter on Instagram. Even with all those smiling photos, she’s still feeling the pains and aftereffects of her birth. Sadie jumped onto her Instagram Stories to share a rare side to motherhood.

“1 week and you’ve officially changed me for the better. I’ve learned that before I ever get to really teach you a thing you will teach me a million,” Sadie wrote in the heartwarming post.

The Live Original founder shared some of the lessons she’s learned already. She called her daughter a “miracle” and her body “much more than just an image. It’s a powerful creation that can host and grow a powerful creation.” Sadie discovered that her “purpose” is to be a mom. And there are even more lessons that she’s learned.
