look mom, one hand!

Now that Madeleine is here, I am amazed at the things I find myself trying to accomplish with one hand.  I have successfully mastered...

opening a can while making dinner
putting on AND tying my tennis shoes
undoing my skinny jeans to use the ladies room
applying eyeliner, straight I might add
typing emails
carrying a car seat and 5 bags of groceries
stuffing, addressing, and stamping an envelope
turning the page of a book without closing it

These may sound easy, but taking away the use of one of your hands because it's occupied by a sleeping (or wiggling) little baby makes these ordinary tasks more difficult and time consuming.  Just try it!!
