What Will Has Taught Us

Here we go again! My due date for our second son used to seem like it was forever away. February - as in after Christmas, after New Year's, ages from now. But NOW, it's hit me full force that sometime right around the corner, I'll have a newborn to take care of as well as my little toddler-bug. (This is one reason I haven't been posting, I am WAY too busy nesting. More on that in future posts.)

Luckily, Will has taught us a lot about raising children, and we're pretty sure we can do things more efficiently and with greater confidence this time around.

Here are some of the things we've learned:

How to Adjust Nap-times

Be Creative Problem-Solvers

Have a Backup Plan

Get Out of the House - Regardless of Weather

Sleep BEFORE They Are Born

Don't Start Solids Before They're Interested

How To Keep Your Child Quiet at the Library

Let Someone Else Hold the Baby While YOU Eat

Sometimes, "IT" Hits The Fan

Keep Your Sense of Humor

How To Take a Shower After the Baby is Born

How To Break Up Long Car Rides

Sometimes, You Can't Be Subtle With a Toddler
(MOMMY'S stove. YOUR stove.)

And last but not least, we are so lucky, and it is so worth it.
