Lessons Learned

I have learned a few things with this baby.
1) When I have brought people dinner, I have been doing it all wrong. Apparently you go all out and include several side dishes and dessert. I think I was just doing a main dish. Ooops.
2) If you are low on the ziplock reusable containers, have a kid. We are now fully stocked.
3) I have been a really bad friend. Upon asking for stuff for the gender info on Owen, We did receive a few gifts that I feel enormously guilty for. I realized that several of these gifts came from people that too had had a baby in the last couple years that I had done nothing for. I can assure you, I mostly just wanted help with meals and cleaning, but am VERY grateful for Owen's clothes since he had very little. But also realized that most the meals I have done for people over the years have been ward members and most the meals we received were from friends. I promise to do better with my friends.
4) Two kids is TEN times as hard as one. Not twice like you would imagine. Not once in Aiden's 2 years and 9 months have I even come close to running out of diapers. My mom had to run to Wal-Mart today because Owen ran out :)

More to come....
