Day 140

I love Ryan's face in this picture.  He just looks so content.

The other day at work, I was talking to a 1st grade teacher.  We were talking about motherhood and I made the comment, "being a mom is so easy."  She said, "You probably just have a really easy baby."  Which got me thinking, I do have an easy baby.  Taking care of Ryan has always been easy.  My pregnancy was amazing, no morning sickness, no stretch marks.  My labor/delivery went pretty good too.  Sure- I chose to get induced on my due date.  I checked in at 7:30am and had a baby in my arms in 9.5 hours.  My recovery from delivery sucked.  But that's not Ryan's fault. :)  He has always nursed really well.  Always slept at night & only woke up for a feeding. No 3AM playtimes.  Was sleeping through the night since he was 3.5 months old.  He behaves when we go shopping.  Yes- we have rough days- but they are few and far in between.

Yesterday I took him shopping and I held him the whole time & he just hung out with me.  Looking around.

Makes me a little nervous for my second baby.


  1. I have had the same experience! What makes it worse is that people TELL me to be prepared for the second one! Great! Can't wait! ;)

  2. I don't really believe it but if it were to be true, I'm defintely glad I had a hard baby first and got it out of the way!
