Ten Things I've Learned in the Past 3 Weeks

10. She may smile because she has gas, but I think it's because she recognizes my voice.
9. They grow quickly. That is no lie.
8. Car seats are heavy.
7. We have a ton of burp cloths, yet we can never find one when we need one.
6. Diaper bags: How to pack them, what to pack them with, etc.
5. You can live off little to no sleep (but that doesn't mean you are pleasant to be around).
4. For someone so small, she has more laundry than both Jeff and I combined.
3. You can NEVER have too many diapers.
2. Projectile poop happens. Prepare yourselves.
1. I love motherhood.

Number 6 is definitely one that I wonder about - mothers always seem to have exactly what they need in those things. But how did you know you'd need it?

I really could live without experiencing number 2 - I'll just take your word for it.

I'm so glad you're loving it!!! Can't wait to see her again to see how she's changed!!

Projectile poop. Word. You are such a beautiful mom. This is definately something you were born to do. Keep up the good work.

PS: I totally agree with #5. Nothing prepares you for that.
