Leslyn's Lovely Life: 5

Friday, July 18, 2014


Here are 5 things that I've already learned since having a baby.

1. Seriously- sleep when the baby sleeps.

Because you might die if you don't.

2. It really does take a village.

Side note- why does my husband's hair kind of look green in this pic? Weird. It doesn't look like this in the original photo. Either way. This is my favorite picture ever.

I can't imagine doing this without my husband, and my heart goes out to the people who have to do this on their own. Also, having my family here has been a life saver for both me and DJ. 

3. What was once your empty photo library is suddenly a collage of the funny faces your child makes. 

Side note: I am trying not to go overboard with the social media stuff. So far, I've managed posting only 3 pictures since he was born. And they're all sweet/special moments that needed to be documented.

4. There are some things that you can't really prepare for. 
Breastfeeding, postpartum recovery, and the sleepless nights. Just to name a few.

5. People are right- it is all SOOOOO worth it.

I couldn't agree with you more! The first few weeks, I had a very hard time sleeping when baby slept because I was either starting at her in awe, or was paranoid that something would happen to her if I wasn't watching. The type of tiredness that comes with a new baby is a complete different realm of tired than I had experienced before- one that caffeine can't even touch- but like you said...It is so worth it!

What a beautiful baby.... Good luck with the next few months of sleepiness but it's all worthwhile for that bundle of joy!

So so true! You have such a handsome little man! Enjoy this phase, even though it's exhausting. I didn't think I would miss the newborn phase, but to my surprise I kind of do! Keep up the good work mama!
