A Baby Changes Everything . . .

Emma Claire

Born: February 9, 2009. Nothing could've prepared me for how amazing giving birth to such a beautiful little girl would be! We're already head over heels in love with her. :)

Congratulations! It is amazing - not only the first time. And yes, you never know what kind of love people are talking about until you have a kid yourself.
Take care of yourself now. You will be tired, grumpy, crying, wishing the baby would shut up, then happy again, then guilty the next moment. You will feel like a bad mom, like you can't handle it, that you're just a milk cow. That is normal. We all went through this. Struggle through and know it gets better. Remember, you both have to get used to this new life. And it's not easy. It will never be the same again. After a month, things ease down a little, after two months the sleeping gets a little better and usually after 3 months you're back to your normal self, except that you're not, cause you're a mom.
Wow how great. I wish you all the best.

This is wonderful Bri! Congratulations, and she is a real cutie - so peaceful sleeping with the hat on. Oh, and Mom and Dad look pretty proud too (and deservedly so!). Enjoy all your moments with her.
