Things that change when you have a baby!

1. Our body! For nine months I looked like a huge elephant, I could not wait to get Jaxon out of my stomach so I could have my body back. Little did I know that it does not get much better. Sure I was small again, but now I have this flabby skin hanging and tons of stretch marks. Not a pretty sight.
2. My cute little purses I use to carry around have now become a big bag full of diapers, wipes, burp rags, binkies, ect.
3. The extra room we had to store stuff and put all our extra junk in, is now a nursery.
4. My night stand did have the twilight books on it, now it consists of baby books, like Baby Wise and This breast feeding book.
4. I was one of those people that was always on time or early to things. Well that does not happen anymore. We are almost always late to everything now. Even when I try to plan out the time and try to leave a few minutes earlier, we still seem to be late.
5. This one is most important. The time you spend with your spouse in now cut in half. Most of my attention is on the little one now. But, the moments I do spend with Jared I try to make sure they are worth it. I have try to spend less time arguing and more time cuddling and focusing on the positives.

I know I will experience a lot more change as time goes on, but all these changes are good ones and like I always say, their worth it!

Yes it is definately different now being a mommy, but charish each moment you have with your family! I am proud of the good mommy you've become! Welcome to motherhood! It is test of your patience but it sure is a blessing!

You pretty much hit all the biggies, it doesn't take long to figure them out! Glad I finally got to see little Jaxon last weekend and looks like you're doing alright!
