Three Blogs in One

1. Remember this? Entitled, "The First of Many Father-Son Naps."

Here's the second in the series.

Only this time, one of them isn't sleeping... ("Busted! Dad, you are sleeping on the job!")

2. is changing my life! I'm probably way behind, but Ryan just showed this to me the other day, and now I can't stop listening. You just put in a title or an artist that you like, and the website starts playing tons of other similar songs. It's so much better than radio because it's all songs you like, and there are no commercials or obnoxious DJs! Plus, it's free!!

3. I hope you don't mind how incredibly much motherhood is on my mind. It's the biggest thing that has ever happened to me, so I can't help but write about it. I LOVE taking care of my child. I enjoy feeling needed, even when it gets tiring. I enjoy talking to him all day long. I enjoy changing his dirty diapers with him smiling up at me. I feel my love for him growing every day, and I can't think of anything more amazing than experiencing that.

Lastly, an article came to my inbox the other day compliments of, and I had to share parts of it.

Things that change when you have a baby:
  • You respect your parents and love them in a new way.
  • Where you once believed you were fearless, you now find yourself afraid.
  • You believe once again in the things you believed in as a child.
  • You think of someone else 234,836,178,976 times a day.
  • Bodily functions are no longer repulsive. In fact, they please you. (Hooray for poop!)
  • You look at your baby in the mirror instead of yourself.
  • The sacrifices you thought you made to have a child no longer seem like sacrifices.


  1. I love baby center... The things on that list are so true! Trenton is seriously getting cuter and cuter.

  2. This list is definitely true. I'm grateful motherhood is making me a better person. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving!!! I'm thankful that you're such a good mom to Trenton. I love you!

  4. That is beautiful, and so, so true! It's amazing.

    I just realized that I can't remember the last time we had Thanksgiving together. :( Next year. :)

    Give that baby boy TONS of kisses from his favorite platinum blond aunt!

  5. I LOVE Pandora!! I've been listening to it for awhile, and I live in fear that it'll stop being free!

  6. Ah Erica . . . I love this posting! Even though our baby isn't born yet - I think I have a glimpse into what it is like to feel that kind of love. I am so attached to this baby even though she is still in the womb! You are definitely a great mom!!

  7. HA! Ryan's sleeping on the job. That's funny. And Trenton is so CUTE!

    I am also glad you like being a mom so much, it makes me think maybe it wouldn't be so bad after all!
