You’ve read every baby book cover to cover, but these are the milestones you never saw coming—and you’ll never forget.

1. When you realize the baby in the hospital bassinet is going home…with you.

2. When you can finally distinguish the difference between a ‘hungry’ cry and a ‘poop’ cry.

3. When other moms ask you for advice.

5. When your baby notices himself in the mirror for the first time.

6. When you see yourself in baby for the first time.

7. When the baby squeals with delight as you change his diaper. Who cares if it’s because you were on the wrong end of a surprise spray?

8. When your baby’s cuteness stops a stranger in her tracks.

9. When you make your baby laugh so hard he gets hiccups.

10. When you discover daddy and junior napping together, in identical sleeping positions.

    Rated 0 out of 5 by the best thing about people complimenting my baby is that its a reflection on me. "he's so adorable he is going to be so handsome" guess what those are half my genes. "oh he is so smart." he takes after momma. "he is hilarious" well that ones his dads. I think a big moment for me was when he kept trying to touch things. he would throw his arm out and bat at things. well one night he wanted to touch momma's face. wacked me right in the eye. grandma was babysitting and he was in a fussy mood when I got home. she couldn't get him calmed down but as soon as I picked him up he stopped crying and started smiling. I was so awed that this little creature could not only recognize me but wanted me. August 27, 2014
