Ok, so I'm adjusting to having a newborn around. I think you forget that they wake up every 2-3 hours during the night! It's so worth it though!

I can't believe you're still functioning full steam ahead, Andrea. My little one just turned 6 months and I'm FINALLY starting to feel like my life is SLOWLY coming back. Congratulations on your beautiful little blessing, though. They really are worth it, aren't they :) Thank you for all your wonderful freebies- but seriously, if you want to take time to enjoy it while they're little, we understand!

Thanks for the freebie. Now go get some sleep.

Tracy said...

Thank you for this awesome template!

I think you have Mother's Amnesia - LOL! I know I did - I think God planned it that way, so we would continue to reproduce :)

Good Luck with the new addition and go get some sleep!!!

So glad to hear that things are continuing in a positive light for you in spite of the change in life-style with the feedings. Get as much rest as you can because the whole world is waiting for that little one.

Thanks for another cherished template. Love of course those swirls that speaks of the frilly girl items that I did not care for as a child. "Life's Strange Riddles." Leavin lUV! XOXOXO

Give my love and regards to your fantastic team. I really enjoy all the lovely layouts and techniques so beautifully shown within their designs. I definitely did not mean to omit them from my remarks. So please forgive me ladies, I adore all your colorful additions to Andrea's Blog page.

Newborns are so great. I know what you are saying - you completely forget about the lack of sleep when you think about having a baby - you know in your mind that you won't get as much sleep but it doesn't really hit you until you actually have the baby. I'm wishing you all the best in adjusting and as always thank you for yet another amazing template. They are amazing.

Myxi said...

I'm tired just thinking about having a brand new baby to care That's why God, in all his wisdom blesses us with them while we are young. Thank you for your time in making new ones for us and sharing them especiall now that your hands are even fuller. :)

Tink said...

Have to agree with Sally, all the way. You truly are blessed with a gorgeous little one. And I can't see how you are making time to still do templates. Not complaining though. I love them all. Thank you.

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
