1. Take a lot of photos - with your newborn, no matter what you look like! I was so embarassed by my weight, after my 1st child, I didnt want to be in any photos. Now, I regret it.
2. Take the help that is offered to you. People that offer help, mean it. Utilizing your family and friends, so that you do not become overwhelmed.
3. Don't sweat the small stuff. Time goes by so fast...enjoy every moment!
