Things are changing...

Below are some gifts baby J has already received. Courtesy of his Popsy, Nonnie, Aunt Shannon, Uncle Blake, Harper and Henley.

Harper and Henley have outfits to match this -- can't wait to see them all 3 in them next spring!
I got the below in an email from babycenter. It list some things that change once you have a baby! I thought I would share them...

1. You finally stop to smell the roses, because your baby is in your arms.
2. Where you once believed you were fearless, you now find yourself afraid.

3. The sacrifices you thought you made to have a child no longer seem like sacrifices.
4. You respect your body ... finally.
5. You respect your parents and love them in a new way.
6. You find that your baby's pain feels much worse than your own.
7. You believe once again in the things you believed in as a child.
8. You lose touch with the people in your life whom you should have banished years ago.
9. Your heart breaks much more easily.
10. You think of someone else 234,836,178,976 times a day.
11. Every day is a surprise.
12. Bodily functions are no longer repulsive. In fact, they please you. (Hooray for poop!)
13. You look at your baby in the mirror instead of yourself.
14. You become a morning person.
15. Your love becomes limitless, a superhuman power.

There are also some other big changes going on with us right now. I'll share more on this next week! But for now I'm going to enjoy the weekend and hope you all do too!

#15 is so true for me for the love I feel for three special chilren ... you know I do not like the word "step-children". I love you and know that you will be a wonderful, loving, nurturing mother!

I love you!

Oh how this list is true. To start off with I'm sitting here trying not to cry!! I have to say they are all SO SO true but most definitely the one about your parents. I see them (especially my mother) in a whole NEW light! :) You'll understand it all so soon!
