New Mommy Thoughts

- I never imagined that my thoughts would be so consumed with poop and milk.

- Who knew that I could survive for 7 hours on 4 hours of sleep?

- When he smiles, it's the best feeling in the world!

- I had no idea that days could blend together so quickly.  There really is no sense of day or night.  Time is broken up into "When did he last eat?" which is about 2 to 3 hour increments. 

- I am frequently overwhelmed by the amazing and often scary amount of responsibility that comes with such a tiny, fragile human being. 

- How is he almost one month old already?

- Date night tomorrow night!  At a restaurant!  With CLOTH napkins!!

- I can never get enough sleep.  Ever.  I don't think I'll ever really sleep again.  Really.

- I get it now.  I really do.

 Little W loves to be free from swaddling blankets!

We never doubted for a moment you wouldn't understand ... and all of us are so happy for you, Matt & little wee man Wesley.

And there will be a day when you will get more than four hours of sleep in a row - and you will feel like a rock star!

Don't worry, you'll get to sleep through the night in another 3 or 4 years...unless you decide to have another one, that is!

Wow, 4 hours of sleep with an itty bitty newborn sounds great! Take a moment to feel lucky for that stretch of time!

And I totally agree about being amazed at how much one focuses on poop and milk with a newborn!

Glad things are going well, and awesome that you already got out on a date! WOW! You make motherhood sound like a breeze :)
