things i’m learning

April 16, 2012

✔ just how addicted to amazon i could get — and we’re not just talking about diapers.

what? hair upkeep is still necessary, too

✔ that ‘soothing to sleep’ sounds much simpler in the book than it tends to be in real life [especially at certain times of night]

✔ how much fun it is to see your baby enjoy herself!

so far this one is actually a fan of tummy time — in short bursts, of course
✔ just how many expressions an 11-day old is capable of making

i think this one says, “stop taking so many pictures, mommy”
✔ how incredibly delicious brunch made by a friend — in the comfort of your own home! — can taste

especially when it includes bacon

starting to SOOOOORT of get a handle on some daily routines — i’ll be back with a post about my attempts at organizing the day in a bit! she’s several month ahead of me, but i’m already inspired by some of laurie‘s tactics. i’m not giving up the planner / lists yet!

    I’m really impressed with your blogging frequency since having your beautiful baby! It gives me hope that life doesn’t end entirely when you become a parent 😉

    This is really cute. Having a new baby in the house is really rewarding especially if it’s your own. I can feel the happiness on this post. Thanks for sharing!

    1) Thanks for the shout-out! It’s definitely good to have some structure, which gets easier as baby gets more independent, as long as you plan in plenty of wiggle room for baby’s ever unpredictable ways 🙂

    Kudos to you! You are doing an amazing job handling the newborn, the daily life and of course, the important things like HAIR 😉 She is so cute and you are doing great with swaddling 🙂
