Things I've Learned...

  • any situation can be made better by looking at a smiling baby, especially your own

  • bananas look funny coming out the other end

  • just because a baby CAN roll over doesn't mean she always will

  • I had heard, but now experiencing this fact: the same post baby weight does NOT look the same as pre baby weight

  • I could not do this without my amazing, ever-involved husband

  • just because the pants say 6-12 months doesn't mean a baby can grow out of them at 4 months

  • when walking into a baby boutique, don't open your wallet- it can lead to bad, bad things

  • carseats (the travel system type) should have wheels and a handle

  • TV's are a lifesaver, thank goodness we have 4 operational ones in our house

  • I have enough hair on the bathroom floor to make 2 wigs

  • every day is different, and that's what makes it fun

  • babies are smart, you don't think Emmy is playing me when she squaks when I leave the room? Is she really upset: NO. But did she get me to come back into the room: YES.

  • People are drawn to babies, it's odd how many heads a baby can turn when she enters a room

  • I didn't realize I had it in myself to be a true caretaker

  • Running errands will never be the same, but that's ok

  • i'd rather starve until I eat after emmy's bedtime than eat in a rush while she's awake

  • walks around the block have never been more fun and entertaining

  • we will need to get an x-cargo (rooftop carrier) with the next child. The SUV has already run out of room.

  • lastly, I've always known- but Emmy has been a fresh reminder that our God is amazing. He blesses us everyday in ways that I realize, and in so many more ways that go unnoticed. I am so thankful for His unconditional love and I pray that Chris and I do our best at showing the same kind of love for our child(ren).


I love hearing what you have to say:
