What makes her happy (this girl will fight sleep because shes nosey and I have learned how to get her to just go!! )
Wash dishes with one hand/baby strapped on me
Carry laundry and a baby!! lol! ( this is bad if dh is not home I go to the clean clothes out and put Adrianna in the basket she dont seem to mind!! lol)
Eat one handed
She has really just made me a better and happier person all around and I have learned how to do so many things!! I am really ready to take the next step in having a new born and 11 month old. Some days I know I will want to run away but I really enjoy my no sleep, spit up on, laughs, cuddle time...I know it wont last forever so i am so soaking it up!
So many things...eating with a baby on my lap, spraying poop off diapers, open mouth kisses, a bigger bag for the baby than myself, learning to wrap a moby, carrying laundry one handed, basically how to time my entire morning so we get out the door on time lol!
You covered it well. I cannot believe how painless birth was and I feel dumb for even asking for the epidural and just my luck it did not even take and I got pitocin as well and never cried none of the staff could believe it. I cannot believe how much of an easy carefree baby Jayden is. I cannot believe how much he has grown and how beautiful he is. I thought all of this was going to be a lot harder than it is and I cannot wait to have another baby!
I am surprised that no matter how tired or stressed I am, a little smile or grin from Eabha and it all melts away! :-)
I can't believe how early their little personalities develop- she is super mischievous already and gets such a sparkle in her eye. She is totally determined when there is something she wants to try and perseveres until she gets it. She is a total chatterbox and I love how much she really engages with us. I also am learning so much through her - it's so cool to see all the new things she is experiencing and learning and to wonder at myself all that she has achieved already. I love that every little milestone is such a huge cause for celebration :-) I was surprised at how quickly she learned social cues and how to play people - she knows exactly when to turn on the charm lol!
I am DEFINITELY surprised at how quickly I felt broody after having her! We were so lucky with her and I feel so grateful. :-)
