What We've Learned...

four days as moms, we've already learned so much

1.  Your world changes instantly when your child is born.

2.  Your house is quickly taken over with everything baby - we've lost a counter in the kitchen already as it is filled with pumping parts.

3.  You now live in 3 hour cycles.

4.  There is instantly more laundry to do.

5.  Breastfeeding is harder than it looks.

6.  Forget EVERYTHING you read in the books and trust your gut - do what your mom instincts tell you are right for your child.

7.  You had better make your morning cup of coffee in a travel mug so that it stays warm because it might be hours until you get to actually drink it.

8.  You learn quickly how to do everything one handed.

9.  There is nothing better in the whole wide world than staring at this face!

Some of you have asked about his hair and yes, it is an awesome strawberry blonde!
