Musings of First time Parents – 2 Months

It feels like it was just yesterday that I wrote my musings for the first month! Nothing makes you realise how fast time goes by like a baby, before having Arren a month didn’t feel like such a big deal, but now when I see all the milestones we go through on a monthly bases as humans I feel more grateful for the time I have in this earthly life.

A lot has happened this month;  The best thing that happened this month is definitely the fact that Arren finally likes his dad! I think we finally wore him down with all our intense ” You will like your father” techniques! Hey, it worked! Everyday just keeps getting better with this guy!

MUSINGS OF FIRST TIME PARENTS – 2 MONTHS

  • We’ve figured out how to bounce Arren to sleep in a shorter amount of time.  It might look weird to people, but hey! It works! It also  causes slight cramping instead of one long cramp from an hour of  “normal” bouncing.
  • You wont know how to stand still without your baby in public.  I start bounce standing when talking to people now.
  • Going out with a baby means taking everything you own ,because you don’t know if you will need it or not.
  • Being late will just become the norm.  Even if you get up really early, have everything ready a poopslosion can turn into an impromptu bath time.
  • Making it to church at 9am is a distant memory.  Things just take longer and its okay, soon we will figure out how  to leave the house before 11:30.
  • Arren can go from a happy smiling baby to a sad baby within a minute.  Babies are bipolar.
  • Everything is worth it, because of that amazing little person in your arms.  The cute baby smiles, giggles and coos will make your heart melt.
  • Why is there vomit on everything???
  • Arren is more engaged now and loves to play.
  • A more wakeful baby also means more time to figure out why he’s crying.
  • Arren went to his first funeral this month and I saw first hand the comfort a baby can bring to everyone around them.
  • You wont believe how many photos you take.
