Things I Didn't Know

Let's face it: there's a LOT I don't know about babies. Including, but not limited to...
  • How loud they are when they're asleep. Georgia alternates from sounding like a snuffling miniature warthog, to whimpering quietly in her sleep. Both are very endearing - unless it's 5am.
  • How they behave when other people are visiting, but can be little terrors the second you're home alone.
  • How hilarious her hairy ears are. {Will this ever go away?}
  • How long it takes for me to get out of the house. It's not just shower, grab purse, go. It's shower with screaming child in the bouncer, pack bag while baby sleeps, put bag in car, dress and change baby's nappy, head to the car, get puked on, go back to dress and change baby's nappy again, and so on, and so forth.
  • How certain things they do remind you of yourself. Georgia sneezes when she goes outside in the sunlight, like I do, nearly every time.
  • How quickly they don't look like newborns anymore.
  • How many outfits they can go through in a day. {And this is me counting myself lucky that we don't have an epic puking baby, or a crazy leaking butt baby.}
  • How you can spend countless hours of every day acting like an idiot just to try and make them smile. :)
