Yipee it is almost 7am

and I slept what I now consider to be all night. That is baby boy went to bed at 8 and got up at 6 am. I nursed him, pumped, and now hear I am - blogging...keeping my commitment. You know, when you become a mom you lose alot of things. Fortunately for me I lost weight as well, but let me tell you that went with other things too. I am going to try here at 6 am to compile a short list of what comes to mind.

1. Sleep
2. The ability to go back for seconds and linger while you eat
3. Evening social life
4. Clothes budget
5. Long phone conversations
6. Pick up and go mentality
7. Blasting music in car
8. A spotless house
9. The ability to write this list without thinking about all the amazing positives

With that what I love:

1. The zoo members only night - hottest spot in town
2. Cuddles
3. Family Cuddles
4. Open mouth kisses from baby
5. Baby coos
6. My husband and I laugh so much more
7. Stroller status (this is a whole post in it self)
8. Mommy friends!!!
9. The Mom Club
10. Knowing you can do anything after having gone through labor

I can only imagine how much having a baby changes your life. It does sound like it is for the better though, despite the list of things you miss :)

Love the new background!

This is all so true! I love the stroller status part. When I see a Bugaboo stroller sometimes I just stare in amazement like it's a porshe or something. It is exhausting but rewarding at the same time. Life changes and forever and it will never be the same, but in a good way.
Glad to see you back on the blog.

Stroller status - that's hilarious! I'm rolling in a Maclaren, but it's no Bugaboo. Honestly though, I think I'd REALLY like a BOB Revolution. Mmm...
