mini battles…major victories

Having a new born will make you realize that you don’t have to fight a major battle to have a major victory.  In fact, a mini battle very often yields a major victory.  To prove my point, here are a few examples –

  • Waking up to our crying boy, realizing and then fixing what is wrong, and then both of us going back to sleep…VICTORY!
  • Having our boy cluster feed every hour or so in the evening so he sleeps in 4 hours chunks throughout the night…VICTORY!  And PS – he has done this on his own…again, victory!  🙂
  • Having the “diaper experience” be more of the norm instead of cruel and unusual punishment…VICTORY!
  • Having our boy enjoy sleeping in his bassinet…VICTORY!
  • Having family that’s willing to help…VICTORY!
  • Enjoying a strong cup of coffee…VICTORY!

Anyone else have any to add?  If so, leave us a comment!

I’m sure there will be more and more as the years go by…can’t wait!



  1. Sounds like things couldn’t be going better. Great for you!! I may call YOU for advice!!
    I can’t wait to have mine on the outside and see her little fingers and toes….2 more days! – Whit

  2. wow, seems like you guys were made for parenthood!!! I’m so happy things are going well for you both. I can’t wait to see more pictures.

  3. Sounds like things are going great. This time flies by. Eli is adorable. For the record, I’m a little jealous about the 25 minutes of pushing.
