How quickly things change

It really is amazing how much life changes after having a baby. You can't really go out or do anything on a whim. Any outings must be carefully planned around feeding and nap times. Friday nights are spent on the couch watching Hairspray. Sleeping in is a thing of the past.

Lee and I went to some friends' house last week for a barbecue. (Just the fact that we got out with the baby for an evening was a MAJOR success.) There were lots of people, many of whom had children. A sweet girl and I had a conversation about how your twenties are really a difficult decade. There's just so much change. I mean, think about it, you go from college, so carefree and fun, to finding a career, getting married, and having children. It's like going from zero to sixty in ten years, less really.

On the way home, Lee and I talked about what a good time we had, and we laughed about how life is just so different than it was even a few months ago. Conversations at get-togethers are now full of things like breastfeeding, pumping, poop, height and weight percentiles. It's just so funny what we consider a good time now.

It's also pretty amazing, and I wouldn't want it any other way. I'd much rather discuss my breast milk supply than who I think is the cutest boy in my statistics class. :)

I was at a party this weekend with lots of kids there, and the moms and the moms to be were all discussing baby stuff. A lot does happen in the 20's!

I agree about things changing... we put together a PUZZLE on girls weekend for crying out loud...and it was actually HILARIOUSLY FUN! I love it, too, though. A lot. :)

Things do change, but in such a good way! It's fun to sit back and think about how things used to be sometimes, not that you would change anything of course, but looking back is always fun! Cute blog and I love your doggie! Reminds me of my Yorki I used to have! oh and I love that grey rug!! Is that from Pottery Barn? Think I've seen one in yellow like that before

The 20s are definitely a whirlwind - but fantastic, and seem to be going by very quickly! But there is nothing better than being happy at exactly the place you are in your life, you sound like a lucky gal :)

Our journey has begun!… secretly though

If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

Exciting things going on around here!
