Things that change once you have a baby…

Sofia Marie turned 1 week old yesterday, and honestly how much she has grown! It’s weird how that happens… I know truly understand why every mother says, enjoy it while you can, time will fly by. Becoming a  mother in a matter of moments sure does turn your world around. Its the best thing that has happened to Sammy and I – we are so thankful!

… I read this, at 3am this morning, the glamorous life of a pumping Mama {3am is a fabulous time to pump and catch up on Blogging}, and I couldn’t help myself but share. This is bang-on when it comes to how you feel after you have had a baby. Rebecca Woolf lists the top 15 things that change once you have a baby and every single one of them, I agree it whole-heartedly. 

I’ve highlighted a few that really touched me and struck a cord, Tell me, do you agree with Rebecca?

1. You finally stop to smell the roses, because your baby is in your arms.
2. Where you once believed you were fearless, you now find yourself afraid.
3. The sacrifices you thought you made to have a child no longer seem like sacrifices.
4. You respect your body … finally.
5. You respect your parents and love them in a new way.
6. You find that your baby’s pain feels much worse than your own.
7. You believe once again in the things you believed in as a child.
8. You lose touch with the people in your life whom you should have banished years ago.
9. Your heart breaks much more easily.
10. You think of someone else 234,836,178,976 times a day.
11. Every day is a surprise.
12. Bodily functions are no longer repulsive. In fact, they please you. (Hooray for poop!)
13. You look at your baby in the mirror instead of yourself.
14. You become a morning person.
15. Your love becomes limitless, a superhuman power.

If their any you personally feel that she may have missed, or that could be added to the list. Please do comment and share, I’d love to hear them all.
