Dear Andrea before Garrett,

Your mom was right, about pretty much everything.

There will be nights when you stay awake all night watching him breathe.

Google never gave birth.

You're married to an incredible man, never forget that.

Millions of parents survive sleep deprivation.

Enjoy falling in love with this new life.

You're going to make mistakes.

Be brave.

Your instincts are probably right.

It's ok to feel like you need a break.

Nobody really knows what they're doing.

Take a break.

You don't have to do things like everyone else does.

The books aren't always right.

Relax, its just the hiccups. And also, just relax.

This too shall pass.

If you've never believed in love at first sight, you do now.

Its ok if you cant find time to vacuum.

Everyone has opinions, only you have your baby.
You probably won't shower everyday.

You're cute enough without makeup.

It's ok to be scared.

There will be poop.
Sincerely, Andrea after Garrett
