It's amazing how fast you forget things. It was only two and a half short years ago that Weebie was a baby, and there are already so many things I can't remember! I am crossing my fingers that it all comes flooding back to me after Ezra arrives, but there is no guarantee. One of my good friends had a new baby a few months ago and has a son Levi's age, so I pick her brain often. I'm so happy that others have gone before me.
I know they sleep a lot.
I know they eat a lot.
I know they cry.
I know they tee-tee and poo-poo.
And I know they are cuddly, cooing, precious smelling little angel cakes.
But other than that, I can't really remember.
I am so immersed in Toddlerhood that Babydom seems like lightyears away!
It's time to learn to balance the best of both worlds:
Bottles and Sippy Cups.
Baby Einstein and Super Why.
Rattles and Leap Pads.
Swaddle Blankets and Ernie.
Activity Mats and Craft Time.
Teething Rings and Light Sabers.
Diapers and Big Boy Undies.
Exersaucers and Trampolines.
Formula and Fruit Snacks.
Peek-a-Boo and Teaching Time.
Onesies and Polos.
Praise Baby and Bible Verses.
Tummy Time and Coloring Books.
Bald Heads and Haircuts.
A baby and a little boy.
I'm likely to get confused and swaddle my almost three year old and put underwear on my baby. I may even give Levi a bottle and Ezra a bag of Cheetos. New Mommy Brain can not be trusted. It's a serious ailment, guys. Cross your fingers with me and hope for the best!
I just hope Weebie doesn't end up in the crib and Ezra in the big boy bed. Something so silly is bound to happen. Luckily, Levi knows what's going on and will be there to help (and correct) me along the way when I get delirious. But trust me, the mix ups will be bountiful and y'all are more than welcome to laugh at me along the way. As long as you remind me that I'm not the only one. ;)
What kinds of things did you forget from one baby to the next?
