don't clean, sleep, sleep lots--wake up when dc1 is 12 weeks old and it'll be much easier.

Cherish every.single.moment.

Because the years fly by and they become grown before you know.

Jimmy Buffet said it best when he sang "summers and winters scattered like splinters, and soon five years slipped away..."

Time does fly.


You do NOT need all the crap that "they" swear you need. You also don't need every lil outfit you see that is "soooo cute", because they won't wear them all.

Socks are good, shoes not so much.

Sleep sacks ROCK!!!

Do not stock up on newborn diapers.

Throw away the **** bulb syringe.

You CANNOT, absolutely CANNOT, spoil a newborn.
