When You Have A New Baby...

...all you want to do is snuggle with her.

...washing bottles becomes your new hobby.

...laundry is done on an as-needed basis.

...showers become a luxury and having time to shave your legs is like taking a mini-vacation.

...emotions.  wow. the emotions.

...exhaustion.  wow. the exhaustion.

...your ten-year-old girl all-of-a-sudden seems like a mini mommy.

...grocery shopping is impossible.

...your stomach looks like it belongs on an overweight, elderly woman with all of it's saggy softness.

...you are amazed that you can love someone so much, so quickly.

...all of the blogs your dream of writing never come to fruition...like the projectile poop; that would have made an awesome blog.

...there is nothing you won't try to make your baby stop crying.

...you become stealth-mommy during the night feedings by moving around, fixing bottles and changing diapers in the dark.

...you are reminded of the greatness of our Creator when she smiles at you for the first time.

...your heart expands every day to accommodate the happiness she brings you.
