    I had my baby girl two weeks ago. She was a Halloween baby...7 lbs 11 oz.

    We are in love!!!:wub: Being a mom is truly amazing...although exhausting. :blush: All you pregnant ladies out there, shell out the money for the bouncer and swing if you can...they are lifesavers!!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

    And I agree with the swing and bouncer. And I'll add in the Baby Einstein tapes. Ignore the educational hype. But at 2 months old, they kept both my girls mesmerized enough that I could either take a leisurely shower or make a quick dinner :)

    Get some sleep when you can! And congrats to you and Gatorguy.

    CONGRATS!!!



    We were wondering how that baby was. I'm so glad that everything is what you expected (and probably more!). Enjoy this time when they are small!

    I echo the bouncer and swing. My DD loved being in them.

    Congratulations! While it has been many years since mine were tiny, they both loved being in the swing.

    Congrats :) I second the thought about the swing and baby einstien videos...for the same reason. DS2 would ONLY sleep during the day with a baby einstien video running...and I could actually take a shower in peace...it was great :D

    I'd expect baby gators to be very hard on pacifiers...

    Seriously, Gatorgal, congratulations and best wishes!

    "What's her name?" Of course, it's "Baby Gator"!

    (Ummm, actually Little Pumpkin sounds much better.)

    Congrats!

    I'm sure GatorGal is "SWAMPED" (those of you don't know the fball stadium nicked named the Swamp)!!!

    CONGRATS & IT WAS ME WITH THE ESP!! LOL!!!

    It must be that Gator Fan in us!!! (Esp. with UofM in the dumps this year...well...hubby can brag this year. LOL!!)

    Oh yeah swings...can you possibly have enough. We bought the portable one that sits close to the floor. My mom bought one at a garage sale & neighbor gave us hers!!!

    I love the onesie...too cute!! We got her a Gator onesie to wear as her "coming home outfit," but she decided to pee all over it right as we were getting ready to leave. :lol: Luckily, I had packed a backup outfit for her. She did get to take her hospital picture in it though.

    Thanks for all the congratulations!!! Being a mommy is awesome. It's funny how you have all these ideas on how you KNOW you're going to parent, then the baby comes and all of that goes out the window! I told myself I'd never sleep with a baby on my chest in bed...HA! I'll do anything to calm a crying newborn at 4am!!!

    The best naps I've ever had in my life were with a tiny one camped on my chest. 'Course, those were naps.

    It's so funny all of us Mommies have done this even when the "experts" tell us not too!!!

    It's kinda like that puppy thing. When you bring home a new puppy your suppose to put a clock in it's bed so it can hear the clicking (suppose to be a stand in for a heart)... our little babes just need to hear that Mommy heart beating!!! Awwwww!!!!

    Most of the experts were busy becoming experts when their kids were infants-- they missed all the real stuff.

    my 10 and 12 year olds still come lay in my chest for a quick minute and I always tell them I remember when they use to lay there and how much I loved it. Just so soothing

    In our house, they're called "snuggles." As in "Mom, I need some snuggles!"
