Happy 5 Month Birthday Zachary!!!!

My beautiful baby boy turns 5 months old today. It made me think of all the things I would want to tell myself five months ago, when I had just had Zachary:

1) Don't be afraid of him- he will scream, cry, throw up all over you, poop and not poop, get a cold, but he will be ok...and so will you! Zachary will have more personality then you know what to do with, but once he gets past 2 months old, he will be the most fun, adorable, bundle of joy you have ever met!

2) Books will not help you- Zachary will absolutely march to the beat of his own drum and you will just have to try to figure out the tune and follow along. No amount of shussssshing, crying it out, or swaddling will change that. You'll learn to love it:)

3) You will change- and you will LOVE it!! Some days you will not shower and not wear makeup and you will live in hoodies and still be 10 pounds heavier then you have ever been...and you will still LOVE it! Zach will be your world and you will fit in things around his schedule, not the other way around. You won't be sad if you don't go out to dinner, don't watch your favourite tv shows, and that you don't fit into your very very expensive jeans anymore. You will just be so happy that you have the most amazing baby in the world!

4) Don't let ANYONE make you feel bad- you are Zach's mother and you know best. People will give you all the advice in the world, but you will still know best. Stand your ground.

5) You will love like you have never loved before- You love your husband, you love your family, you love your friends, but you L-O-V-E your baby. It is the most amazing love you have ever felt. It makes you wonder what life was all about before you had your beautiful baby...and why you waited so long to have him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
