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?
you can never truly be prepared to be a new mom. You can't predict the type of delivery you will have, whether or not you will be able to breastfeed, or know if your baby will sleep through the night. Then, throw in factors like you work full-time and your husband's unpredictable travel schedule...It can all be a bit overwhelming.
