You Know You Have a Newborn When...

1. You have traded in your perfume for the smell of sour milk. (At least the baby likes it!)

2. You have to choose the 'scruntchie' in place of a shower.

3. You actually fall asleep in the dental chair while they are cleaning your teeth! (They say sleep when you can.)

4. It's easier to buy everyone a few extra pair of undies so you can try to keep up with the laundry.

5. You can fall asleep while sitting up - and when you wake up, you call that a restful nap. (Although the pain in your neck lasts for a while.)

6. It takes until 4:00 to get everyone out of their pajamas and into regular clothes.

7. Supper consists of a choice between chicken salad and corn dogs - for 3 nights in a row!

But ... she's worth it!!

Funny! How well I remember those days. Actually, the only thing that's different these days is the sour milk smell.

She's adorable!

Just for the record if it was up to me, we'd have corn dogs and chicken salad every single night for dinner...
