As my only son's first birthday quickly approaches, I can't help but hope that I'll never forget the "little things." This year has brought our family so much joy and taught me so much.
Once I was comfortable with his weight gain and nutritional needs, I stopped our scheduled late night feedings and let him sleep through the night. I felt like the luckiest mom in the world. I often felt guilty when other new moms would complain about their baby's sleep habits--and then, it happened...my perfect sleeper turned into a tiny terror.
You've heard the phrases a thousand times before--"She changed" or "He changed." These phrases are known for being used to explain why a relationship ended--whether it be a friendship, dating relationship or marriage. Why are we so quick to give up on each other just because we change? Do we really expect a person to stay the same forever?
If you're a new parent like me, then you probably don't have a lot of extra time for arts and crafts...Aren't we all just trying to keep the baby alive?! And, if you are on a tight budget...because let's face it, kids are expensive--this is the perfect Valentine's craft for you and your baby. You can even gift it to that special someone.
