During this first week we learned a lot about Frankie as well as about life with a newborn. Many of the things we expected but there were a few unexpected learning items that I wanted to share:
- The impossible is possible: Steve can take naps. :-) Prior to Frankie this was something that happened once in a blue moon but since Frankie, it doesn't seem to be a problem.
- There is no limit to the number of times you (or the wall) can be peed on in one night.
- You can become a master swaddler in no time.
- A newborn will give you a heart attack when they successfully roll over in their first week of life.
The late nights and lack of sleep are a moot point since we are so in love with Frankie. We are blessed with a beautiful (healthy) baby boy and couldn't be more excited to see what we will learn in week two and beyond!
