Meeting your little one for the first time is a magical experience. On the other hand it is also an adjustment and can be a little chaotic. It is important to also keep in mind our babies will only ever be babies once, and that we must make the most of these sacred moments.
Here are 9 things you will miss about having a newborn in the house! Can you think of a tenth?
1. The Smell
Is there anything that smells sweeter than a newborn baby? That new baby smell is one of a kind. Sprinkled all over their baby heads to intoxicate us and make us fall so deeply in love with them.
2. Their Toes
Baby toes are the cutest thing in the history of the universe. Enough said.
3. Baby clothes
Those tiny cute little outfits are super adorable. And those little onesies. The moment you start packing away your little one’s newborn onesies you might want to cry thinking how small they have been.
4. Newborns are portable
Newborns are just so easy to pop into a baby carrier or pram. They are then content to accompany you (silently) wherever you needed to go (no playing hide and seek in the mall like with a preschooler!).
5. Roly Poly Wrists and Legs
Our second baby was quite a chunky one, and it was just so darn cute!
6. You can say things like “I Want to EAT you up” and its normal
If you think about, it is kind of strange to say to a person “I want to eat you up,” but in the baby context, it is normal. It is after all just an expression for ‘YOU ARE SO DARN CUTE!”

7. Newborns are quite easy to please! Well, some of the time
All they need is love, milk, and cuddles and they are all set.
8. They are in love with their mom and dad
Did you see the way your newborn is looking at you? That is complete and utter adoration (and complete and utter dependence).
9. Newborns are new to the world, and they hold the promise of all things good that the world has to offer
One of my favourite baby quotes are ‘Babies are God’s opinion that the world should go on.’ By Carl Sandburg. No further comment needed.
