Another congrats to new 'rents out there!

Best wishes and Good luck to Amelia and Alex who just welcomed baby Eleanor into their cute family!
Following their first few days with their baby on their website brought up so many memories of our first few days with Faz and Tes.
That disbelief that this has happened and the little person is finally, finally and yet, already here.
That knawing exhaustion that challenges you to face another day with a smile on your face. Yes, indeed, the sun rises everyday, without fail, whether you are ready or not.
That joy that tries to break through the exhaustion when the little person looks up at you and you want to just admire their eyes and point out all their cute features, but knowing you have to get down to the serious business of feeding them.
That invisible tattoo on your forehead that reads "I am now responsible for another human beings survival".
That sense that you now know why you should never get between a mother bear and her cub, because she will attack.
The complete surprise that the little person actually does grow, change, and become more independent, even when you were paying close attention.
That heart-pounding, choked up feeling you get when you hear someone else's kid crying in the store, and you think of everything they and you are going through.
The absolute sense of pride and accomplishment when you see your two babies smiling at each other, pulling at each other's feet, and laughing as they realize they have a permanent, in-home buddy.
The cuteness that never stops...
