8 and half months pregnant with Jordan
7 months with Quinn
Danielle 8 months pregnant....
My daughter Danielle has 5 weeks to go before being a mother and I was just thinking of some of the benefits I bet they haven't even thought of:
AutoRock: You know the obligatory parental sway you begin the second you have a baby in your arms, rocking side to side to keep them asleep or still or quiet...the problem is you do it even when your not holding them. I think it can be considered exercise right?
Extra Sensory Hearing: In a large group of people you will be able to distinguish your babies cry from all the other noises. And you will know why they are crying, their wet, their hungry, their teething. Don't all the cries sound alike? Not to their mother.
Strong Stomach: After changing a million diapers, wiping a zillion runny noses and cleaning up lots of baby spit up and vomit a mom gets tough. Little things no longer bug you at all.
Acceptance of all bodily functions: You begin to appreciate burps, and farts and talk about gas and bowel movements all the time. Look at it this way, you will never run out of things to talk about...
Magical kisses: Only mothers have the power to take the sting out of physical and emotional bruises with a simple kiss. (Sorry dads...)
Awakens Instantly: You will no longer sleep soundly for long periods of time. Even if your baby sleeps for several hours you will awaken and wonder why are they not awake yet? Good news is all the bathroom trips in the middle of the night while pregnant have somewhat prepared you for this.
Larger love capacity: A mom never runs out of love. She has plenty for everyone and EACH child is her favorite in some way. You never think you'll love another as much, but you do EACH time.
Seriously motherhood has been the best thing in my entire life, and I can't wait for Danielle to be a mother. She is going to be a wonderful one.....
