I believe . . .

That:
Kisses given from Mamas to their babies last forever. No matter how many 3 year olds think they can wipe them off.

Time spent holding a crying baby is not in vain, and promotes mother-child bonding even more than holding a content baby.

When big brother wants to hold his baby brother, you should always let him, if possible.

People who bring you food even 3 weeks after you have a baby are saints. Saints, I tell you!

You forget how easy a 3 year old is, until you have a newborn.

Dads don’t parent the same way moms do. But that’s okay. It’s probably even good.

It doesn’t feel like the day has started til you smell the coffee brewing.

It takes WAY longer to get ready and go anywhere with an infant. I had forgotten that.

You should not watch Toy Story 3 when you are hormonal and postpartum. And certainly not every day with your 3 year old who pretends all day to be buzz light year or woody. And that makes you remember when your oldest was 3 and used to pretend to be buzz light year. Then you cry again because he’s 13 going on 14 and where has the time gone?

    Awwwww!!!!! Love all the pictures!!!
    I understand about kids growing up too…I can barely watch home movies or look at pictures without getting all emotional! Jeff doesn’t watch home movies for that very reason….don’t tell him I said so though. 😉

    Love it. The food one made me laugh. I’ll call anyone a Saint if they bring me food.
    I look at all of Jude’s wee bitty features and I’m getting all mushy inside. 🙂
