Rachel Uchitel is a brand new mother, and a talented blogger, so it only makes sense for her to give us some baby sense in one of her brand new blogs.
"Today, Wyatt Lily is almost three months old. I spent two hours this morning sitting on the floor of my bathroom, pointing the hairdryer in the direction of my pink négligée that was hanging on the back of the door. The air blew the négligée back and forth, creating a pattern against the white wall that Wyatt seemed to love. That, mixed with the deafening sound from the hairdryer, was the only thing that stopped her from crying.
This is an example of one of the biggest lessons I have learned in the last three months: be creative and think outside the box.
I can’t say that it’s been easy; however every single minute has been completely worth the lifetime of waiting for this baby to come. My whole life has been a series of things happening for a reason, things that didn’t seem to make sense at the time. Yet, somehow, they all lead to the moment where I met my husband, Matt, with whom I created Wyatt Lily.
Wyatt has completely changed every ounce of me, and for that, I am grateful.
Looking back on it now, the first month was a complete daze. I really didn’t know what I was doing. I took advice from friends and family members who had had children before me, and then I tried to implement my own instincts with their lessons."
Thanks for opening up, Rachel!
We'll be sure to also get plenty creative when we have a little one of our own!!!!!!!!
