It’s interesting how much perspective a person can gain in just a few short months. It’s been less than 6 months since he was born, but I already think about what I would change about our first month with Tate. Obviously part of this perspective comes from looking back at a time where I was sleep deprived, hormonal, and terrified that if I did something wrong it would screw my kid up for life. Lately, I have been mulling over that first month in my mind and I feel like I know what I’ll do different next time.

1 - Pictures at the Hospital
I labored with Tate all through the night and that was done mostly in the tub. I ended up completely in the buff for almost the entire process, and as a result I obviously do not have very many pictures to show for it. For the rest of the day after the birth, I was so self conscious about my messy hair and lack of makeup, that I shied away from any pictures with my new born babe.
If I could do it again, I would have put on a little concealer and mascara, ran a comb through my hair, and smiled for the cameras.
What would you do differently?
