Has It Really Been 3 Months?

We have had our sweet girl almost 3 months now.  It has been a roller coaster ride and the biggest learning experience of my life.

I have learned:

That life isn't about me and what I want anymore.  It is about providing for our daughter and doing what is best for her.

Doing things when I want at the exact time I want is a thing of the past.  I have to schedule my life around what works best for our child.

Hot meals are a luxury.  It seems that she is hungry when I am and I have learned to like cold or reheated food.  

Showers need to be quick.  Not that I took a long time before, but now, they happen in the blink of an eye.

Patience is a necessity for motherhood.  It was necessary while waiting to become a mother and even more so now.  

Being critical of other parents was easy before I became one.  I can understand why other parents say, feel and do certain things now.  I used to silently judge them, but as much as I don't want to admit this, it was because I didn't understand. 

That no matter how frazzled or frustrated I get, her smile makes everything right again.

OH, there are so many more things that I have learned and have yet to learn.  I am looking forward to the journey.
