You have your first child, and you have NO idea what to expect. NONE. Your friends that have gone before you in the world of parenthood can kind of give you a heads up. But since every child is different, you can take what they say with a grain of salt.. really.
Well Jackson came into the world and we were thrilled, but we had no clue what we were doing. I remember having such a perfect delivery, that I only wanted to stay in the hospital 24 hours. My thought process was that I was already paying my mortgage on my house, there was no need for us to stay an extra night in the hospital if we were all healthy. Dumb decision. We got home, my milk hadnt come in, Jackson was starving and SCREAMING. Craig and I looked at eachother with the same expression, of "what have we done???"

Needless to say, everything clearly got easier. And although, as soon as we thought we had Jackson figured out, he would change.. things have gone pretty smoothly. You always hear that changing diapers with boys can be quite the adventure, sure we had a couple of pee shower experiences, but for the most part he could wait til the diaper was put back on. Jackson has always had a bigger head, so he has been a bit top heavy, combine that with his need to constantly be on the move.. we have been blessed beyond measure that he hasnt gotten REALLY hurt. I dont do blood... so this is a good thing.

This baby girl is going to keep me on my toes!
