Things I never considered...

It's been a long 4 months- feels like an eternity. I cannot even begin to imagine what it was like before our wonderful blessing arrived. I also have been thinking about all the things I had no clue about, and all the assumptions I had that are not true! For example...I never thought about the fact that binkys do not just go back into the mouth on their own. And how about the fact that you have to pre treat all of the laundry if you ever want to get those yucky stains out. We never really had stains before, now we keep our pretreater next to the hamper. I also never thought about the fact that mobiles and sleepy music could be heard as lets get up and have fun activities. You know what else, I didn't think you could have a conversation with a little one. But, you sure can, she answers you right back either in a growly sound or a shrieky noise. I also didn't know that when I was so exhausted from work and grad school and stying up all night to pump, I would still be excited to get up in the morning to just look at my little one. I am constantly amazed everyday at the things we are learning.Not the best picture, but our latest family pic!
