What I know for Sure:

NOTHING and I mean NOTHING can prepare you for the complete change of life that mommyhood brings. It's like being dropped off, and I mean without time to plan the trip or pack your bags....just dropped off in a foreign country. No language skills, place to sleep, etc.

I am too sleep deprived to do math, give directions, think of a word, place or time of something we have done in the past, or operate big machinery...possibly ever again

The diaper bag must be repacked every day

Every piece of clothing has drool on it

I am more fun, exciting and beautiful to a four month old boy than I had ever imagined I could be......

I am still not sure it's an even trade for the pregnancy, labor, delivery, no sleep, no life, no money, did I mention NO SLEEP, change of life he has brought on...but it's been very interesting.

I have super-sonic mommy hearing....I can hear him breathe from across the room

I desperately need a pedicure (among other things)

Swaying, rocking, bouncing for HOURS every day doesn't burn enough calories to loose the rest of the baby weight

I'm FUNNY.....wanna see:

I'm learning now that I've broken about 90% of my "I'll never do xyz" promises. Such as give my daughter McDonalds and eating in the car.

Ain't that the truth? Just when you make plans and envision how your life will be, the reality turns out quite differently.

All you can do is the best you can every day, one day at a time.

But what a precious gift!

Don't worry about the baby weight too much, you look great. But if you want to burn more calories and still spend time with JJ there is a program calld Stroller Fit. I have a friend who did it and loves it. You exercise while pushing your little one in the stroller or using the stroller to do certain exercises.
