Yes, is this where you will tell me it gets easier?
Yes actually. It will be scary, you will be tired, you will want to pull your hair out, heck you will want to pull your wifes hair and the baby's hair out... But when you look back, it will all be worth it. Babies really only need food, warmth, cleanliness, and most importantly, love. The biggest pearl of wisdom I can pass on is to remember that babies don't have a way to tell you what is wrong and you will have to guess. I made a checklist that I had mounted on the wall behind the crib, starting with diaper, then food, cold, etc. Eventually you will start to notice that the cry/whimper is slightly different when a diaper needs to be changed vs. being hungry. Another thing I did is keep a box of diapers and wipes in the car, in addition to the diaper bag that always went with the baby. Inside the box I also kept a spare onesie, shirt, pants, socks, and a blanket. You never know when you will have a three outfit day and need the extra set of "gear". You will also come to find a million uses for baby wipes. They are a wonderful invention.
My only regret with my daughters I have now is that I didn't take many pictures when they were little. I won't make that mistake with my new little one, please don't with yours. It makes me feel so guilty every time I think about it.
