We've been cloth diapering for a little over a month, being pretty loyal to the switch with just a few short breaks while traveling, I’m not that brave yet. I had some MAJOR misconceptions before starting cloth diapers (Pocket diapers with inserts) and was completely overwhelmed in the beginning. I wanted to share what I've learned so far while it's fresh in my mind.

People say your lives change when you have a baby, we knew this, but we had NO idea how much. Our world is now so drastically different that we can’t help but to “roll with the punches." When things are different, you need to change and adjust, but the kid is only nine weeks old and we don’t even remember the “pre-baby” us anymore. We laugh about our past, present, and future, and so far they feel like different lifetimes. We’re having the time of our lives, and we’re falling in love all over again. We’re experiencing the amazing journey of raising our child together and there’s no one else in this world that I could imagine sharing this with.
My friend and I were pregnant for the first time together. After I had my baby, she, still pregnant, asked me when it finally "hit" me that I was going to be a mom. I looked down at my 3 week old and said "I'll let you know."
When did it "hit" you? When did you finally feel like a "real" parent? What is your first or favorite "Holy cow, I'm a parent" moment?
I am the proud Mommy of 2 under 2, a wife, and an artist. My son has loved coloring, painting and drawing since he could hold/eat a marker. My daughter LOVES watching from her bouncy seat and will be getting messy with us in the very near future. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to be a stay at home mom, and be able to play with, create with and teach the littles.
