The one with pictures of the baby.

Baby is here, finally. And so worth the wait.

Hopefully by the weekend I'll have time for a real baby post full of all the details, but for now here's a few thoughts I've had and things I've learned in my 5 days of motherhood.

-I could look at my baby all day.
-Things don't always go like you think or plan, but it all still goes and you figure everything out.
-I can survive on much less sleep than I thought I could.
-Its not that weird or gross to realize you have poo on your shirt.
-I can bend in ways I didn't know possible while holding a baby, and I can do just about anything one-handed.
-Time flies buy when the daily schedule consists of: Eat, Sleep, Poop, Repeat.
-Having a baby has made me fall even more in love with Paul.
-It's even better than everyone said it would be...

Congrats again. Hopefully we can come by in a week or two. I don't want to bug you too soon -but I sort of want to hold a new baby, I think I've forgotten how little they are.

Yay!!! I am so excited for you. What a wonderful mother you already are. You hit all the true key points in less than a week of being a mother. Best of luck and keep the posts coming :-)

Yes, it is hard to describe how it really feels. You must experience it. But now you know what it means when parents say how much they love their kids. And the good news is that it just keeps on growing. CONGRATULATIONS! So happy for you two.
