  • I would tell her that you cannot over love a child. You cannot over hold them, hug them and teach them. Enjoy every minute.

  • You're damned if you do and damned if you don't so make educated decisions that you are comfortable standing by...and be sure to sniff that wonderful newborn baby head!

  • The little guys are the best things in your life, your world will revolve around them, your life has changed for the better...but don't forget to take just a little time for yourself each day and count your blessings..................then they turn into aweful teens and preteens and the blessing are few and the stress many, but what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger! ENJOY!!!!
