Thank Heaven for Little Girls

10 things I miss about being pregnant.....HA
1. not being able to bend over
2. weighing 160lbs
3. peeing my pants when I sneeze or cough or laugh a little too hard
4. being sooo hot no matter what temperature
5. getting winded after going up a flight of stairs
6. waddling
7. not wearing my wedding ring
8. not fitting into any of my clothes
9. contractions
10. heartburn

10 things I didn't expect from giving birth
1. contractions before labor
2. contractions during labor
3. contractions after labor
4. no exercising for 6 weeks
5. seeing my little girl smile
6. being excessively exhausted but not caring because she is so worth it
7. engorgement
8. not wearing my pre-pregnancy shirts :(
9. a mini-me
10. the immediate bond I felt with this angel child

I had to include those last two photos of me as a little baby so you can see how she takes after her mommy:)

I did a double take when I saw the picture of your mom holding you. For a second I thought...huh...something about Carissa looks different. Then I realized it wasn't you! Your little girl is adorable! Congrats!!!!
