There's some things I want you to know...
-Remember that overwhelmed feeling you used to have when you stepped foot into Babies-R-Us? Soon, that'll be long gone and you'd be able to walk in there blindfolded, but somehow still find what you need (and more.)
-You won't have an answer for everything.
-You'll never sleep quite like you used to (sorry-it's the truth.)
-You'll gain confidence in your parenting abilities as each day passes.
-You'll feel lonely sometimes.
-You're tougher than you think. Your best is good enough.
-Get newborn photos done. Worth every penny.
-You know your baby better than anyone else does. Trust your instincts.
-You'll want to refer to this chart when you're confused by your baby's behavior...
("the wonder weeks"-it's amazing how accurate this is..)
-You'll fall more in love with your spouse/significant other.
-You'll get spit up on right as you get into your work clothes. Multiple times.
-Invest in a white noise machine. Just do it.
-Your priorities will change. You will change and grow.
-You'll crave breaks and "you" time and you should definitely take them. And don't feel bad about it.
-You'll feel more love, joy, and happiness than you ever thought was possible. You're about to enter the greatest chapter of your life. Soak in every moment.
It'll all be worth it.
