I thought it'd be fun to do some funny things that are unique to newborns.

 So,

you know you have a newborn when you wake up after 4 hours of sleep stiff because you're not used to sleeping that long in a row

Someone pees on you every day. And you mind, but not really.

I remember wiping my nose on my mom and thinking I was being really stealthy about it.

You say things like " I think I love you more when I am well rested" to your husband and he just smiles knowingly. ( I said this to mine this morning after a miraculous recovery from a fussy day last night... We slept 7hrs straight!)

It is amazing what a difference a little extra sleep can make!
