A few things I've learned about motherhood (and pregnancy)

There is no such thing as "eating for two"
No baby in this world needs Cracker Barrel and red velvet cake on a regular basis. 
Once the baby is born, the red velvet cake, chicken and dumplins don't magically go away!

To all of you who told me, "Take a nap" and "enjoy your sleep while you can"
Why didn't I listen?

No one can prepare you for the overwhelming feeling of love you have when your baby is placed in your arms for the first time.  I knew I would love him, I was truly unaware how MUCH I would love him!!

You have an all new respect for your own mother, especially if she declined an epidural! 

Grandmothers are placed on this earth with the sole purpose to spoil their grandbabies.  Period. End of story!

You lose touch with the people in your life whom you should have banished years ago but wish more than ever that the ones that are no longer here could share in your joy. 

Your heart breaks much more easily.

It's the little things in life that matter the most

You think of someone else 435,897,546,268,745 times a day

You believe once again in the things you believed in as a child

You take time for one more hug and kiss, even if it means you'll be late

You find your baby's pain feels much worse than your own

You become a morning person

You now believe in love at first sight
