Confessions of a New Mom

  • Still sleep with my pregnancy pillow (body pillow).
  • Sometimes miss being pregnant...and then I remember how uncomfortable I was, never mind.
  • Still take naps when Emerson sleeps.
  • Got so used to wearing new clothes when I was pregnant that I now want an all new post-pregnancy wardrobe.
  • Have found a miracle weight lose program where I get to eat whatever I want and shed pounds every week. It's called breastfeeding. 
  • Find myself singing "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" to myself even when Emerson is not with me.
  • Sometimes rock  myself to sleep out of habit.
  • Look forward to bedtime. Hurry up 9 p.m.!
  •  Am getting used to eating with one hand and doing laundry, and cleaning...
  • Have checked on my son to make sure he was still breathing while he was asleep.
  • Am going bald! Well, not completely bald yet, but definitely have bald spots. No one tells you that you will lose all your hair after having a baby.
  • Get excited to go to Babies R Us and see what cool toys they have.
  • Am not as excited to start solids like I thought I would be. There are too many rules! 
  • Love my son more than I ever thought possible...especially when he pouts, it is just too cute.


  1. I love this post. I do miss pregnancy hair. Oh that thick, luxurious hair!

  2. Very entertaining! I hear ya about the wardrobe. Now you get to buy stuff for Emerson every few months ;)
