hi, im liz and my baby boy will be 10 weeks old tomorrow, on January 10th. he was born on October 27th, 2006.
as hard as i thought motherhood was going to be, it really isnt all that bad. its practicly easy except for kinda being tired. i still go to the arcade and play DDR and pool. i still go out to eat at resturants at least once a week. i still go to the mall every other week.
little babies sleep most of the time, i went out to eat in a resturant when ian was just 5 weeks old. car rides put him to sleep and the sound (also known as "white noise") of the chatter in resturants keeps him asleep.
now that hes a little older, he does wake up sometimes but he only cries because hes hungry (so i go and feed him in the bathroom) or he cries because hes fighting sleep (so i just give him a pacifier and he goes to sleep!)
shopping is a little more tricky, because its hard to push a buggy AND a stroller at the same time (ok, more like next to impossible for me b/c im a klutz) i do need help when it comes to lots of groceries, but usually everything can fit in the storage thing under the stroller.
having a baby as young as i am is probably one of the best mistakes i have ever made. sure, babies have there hard times. but that is true of ANY relationship, weither it be a fight with someone else, or a baby crying at 2 in the morning. waking up at 2 in the morning because this beautiful smiling child needs my love is the best "hard time" i could ever imagine!January 6, 2007 at 7:32 am #14276dillon12

Awww how sweet. I was told i was an idiot when i found out i was first pregnant and hubby’s sister says ow are u going to afford a kid….
We did it fine.She is perfect, she will be 2 in Feb, she gives me a hard time sometimes but doesn’t everyone? She is only a kid and has to learn all the boundaries.January 12, 2007 at 4:57 am #14377Mommyof2babies
