We have survived three weeks now - Hunter and I. I can't even begin to describe what these few weeks have been like. My hormones are still a little out of control so it has certainly been one emotional roller coaster. Somedays I don't know who is crying more, me or the little guy. I think it's getting better...today is a good day anyway.
It's crazy how much Hunter has changed already since he was born. He smiled at me today...in a way that I knew wasn't gas. We looked into each others eyes and it was so awesome. I could have cried looking at my little angel but instead I just stared back with a goofy smile on my face. He is truly the love of my life.
Here are a few of the things that I have learned in the first few weeks of motherhood...
** Sleepers that zip, instead of snap are God's gift to first time parents.
** All diapers should have wetness indicators on them - not just newborn ones.
** Cheap baby wipes aren't worth the savings. In the middle of the night with a crying baby, trying to pull them apart is enough to make you pull your hair out.
** Sleeping babies make the CRAZIEST noises
** A 9pm bedtime isn't just for babies.
** You'd be amazed what you can get done in the 120 minutes that your child is sleeping - laundry, dishes, a blog!
** One of the highlights of being a mom is watching my husband become a dad!
** Being a mom is the hardest and most demanding job - but clearly the most rewarding.
** Nursing is painful and hard, but worth it.

There are millions more that I have yet to learn and can't wait to do so.
My sweet little guy is stirring so it's back to being at his beck and call. :)
