when i first found out that i was going to have a baby i had to get the popular "what to expect when you're expecting" book, because they have all the answers right. haha yeah, that was a good one. i've learned so many things since having him that make me thinking, "wheres that book?!"
-easily putting back that super awesome shirt you found to buy him another rattle toy, because he smiles when you shake it.
-the smiles over the simplest things
-the smiles because they recognize you or your voice.
-bathtime and watching him kicks his legs in excitement when he first hits the water.
-snuggling, snuggling, snuggling.
-that moment when you realize hes finally asleep.
-how they easily figure out to pinch that thin layer of fat on your neck or arms and hold on like the world is ending.
-spit up. oh how it smells.
-the screams because they are hungry. you try to get food as quickly as possible but it never seems fast enough.
-hitting every red light on the way somewhere with a screaming child
the head scratchers:
-one second no paci, next second, paci saves the day.
-how quickly diapers and formula disappear. "seriously, didnt i just buy that?"
-how a small little being needs so much luggage. seriously its like moving anytime we go anywhere.
-must get up at 6 to be out of the house by 10 if i'm wanting to look halfway decent.
-how such big boogers come of that little bitty nose.
-how quickly they grow. he's going to be driving any day now.
-you somehow figure out how to one hand everything. eating your own food, getting yourself ready, cooking & my personal favorite driving with one hand and reaching in the backseat to put a paci in his mouth.
and most of all, the best thing ever
-how i could love something so much that i dont know how life existed before him.
what are some of your most favorite, ugliest or head scratching moments of parenthood?
