I think I'm FINALLY starting to get it!!! I know it's not really the same thing.... but Husband and I got a puppy a couple weeks ago. Neither of us has had a puppy before. Of course, to me, everything she does warrants front page headlines ("ooooh, look how her ears bounce when she trots", "awwwww, look how sweet she is when she sleeps!", "what a good poops! look everyone, she pooped!!!"). I know it's probably not quite the deep, profound feeling that a mother gets when she looks at her child, but for the first time, I think I understand why you simply cannot shut up new mothers.
