The Baby Life

I read books, asked questions and really tried to prepare myself for birth. I went to classes, bought stuff and readied myself for being a mom. What I didn't think about was how drastically my life was going to change. No one explained to me that from the minute my little man came into this world, I would be eating, sleeping and breathing baby. Don't get me wrong, I love it. When Connor is awake, I just want to talk to him and cover him with kisses. When he is asleep, I go back and forth between wanting to sleep myself and checking to make sure he is still breathing. Then there are the endless loads of laundry (he is great at projectile spit up), the feeding, changing, rocking and more. All the sudden, I don't have time for my know, the life I had two weeks ago...

Gone are the days that I email everyone who emailed me (sorry friends!), called people on the phone, updated my facebook and knew everything that was going on in the world (hey, I love the news). But, I realize this time won't last forever. My little man won't stay teeny tiny forever. I won't always lay him in bed beside me and stare in awe at his beauty (come on, you know you think he is adorable too!).

Being a person who likes to be on the go, I never thought I would find myself staring at a baby, talking to a baby and enjoying it more than anything. My little C-Man is beautiful and perfect. And he has come at the perfect time in my life, where I am able to just sit around and enjoy him. And I am thankful for every second of it.


  1. Pretty cool huh! What's really cool is that watching your kids in amazement continues changes but stays the same. Enjoy.

  2. Isn't amazing how a baby so little can change your life so much! Enjoy the baby life!

  3. I was so depressed after I had Ethan. It only last two years. lol. Huge adjustment and didn't know that maybe I should talk it out. ha! It will take time but keep being honest with yourself and others.

    It's a whole new world. The best thing I have ever done with my life!

  4. I spy on Landon all the time. He'll be playing with toys in the living room and I'll just stare at him from the kitchen. I can't stand there for more than 20 minutes. It's ridiculous. And yet it, isn't.

    You're so right. This season of staring and dreaming is a short one. Soak in it.

  5. Take it day by day and realize some will be a bigger adjustment than others :) at the end of the day you will smile as he sleeps soundly in his crib (or is it a cot?) and you realize what a gift C-man is and the sacrifices all become worth it.

    Love you much!
