I proudly present the TOP TEN THINGS I HAVE LEARNED THUS FAR IN MOTHERHOOD (and still learning!)
#10: Celebrate the milestones. Smiles...coos....teeth....rolls...crawls...poops...sleeping through the night...eating solids...grabbing....noticing mommy and daddy. No matter how small the milestone, they are always exciting to mommy and daddy. Always.

#9: Take pictures. Often and always. Videos are great too. Even if they are ridiculous and he won't care to see them when he is a teenage, his mama will.
#8: Zippered sleep and plays are 100 times better than the button ups. After buttoning and re-buttoning outfits after I skip over snaps--zippers have been a God send.
#7: I'm not crazy for still having to check if he is breathing in his sleep. It helps mama sleep; so why the heck not.
#6: Spit up is inevitable. Embrace it as a fashion statement---other parents will understand.
#5: Mom knows best. Trust my instinct no matter what the circumstance or inconvenience.
#4: You can never call the doctor or google too much.
#3: No amount of sleep, surfing the internet, running errands, cleaning or doing dishes is worth ignoring my child for. They can wait. No matter what. They can wait.
#2: Cheeks are made for kissing--good and often. 'Nuff said.
#1: This is THE best, greatest and most important role I will ever have in this lifetime.
