When you think about being a parent what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Is it those adorable moments, the first words, or even the long sleepless and crying nights? For artist Yehuda Devir it was all of the above, and his illustrations depicting his and his wife’s reality of parenthood on social media has since become world-famous for their honesty and their humor. See which of his photos you relate to the most, while also keeping an eye out for a few of the “real” photos we’ve sprinkled along the way. Don’t forget to stick around for the end for a special surprise that the couple has!

1. You Can Stare At Your Baby For Hours

There is nothing more magical than welcoming a child after months of anticipation. When they arrive, any parent will agree that their innocence and cuteness is perfection itself, which makes it basically impossible to not stare at them for hours.

You Can Stare At Your Baby For Hours

Yehuda & Maya Devir

No matter how much of an adjustment it may be to bring a baby home, those peaceful moments remind us that it’s all worth it.

2. Changing A Diaper Is Not For The Faint-Hearted

Many parents will agree that changing a diaper takes some skill. The experience can be incredibly messy and overwhelming at first, but nothing like some practice runs to learn it to perfection.

Changing A Diaper Is Not For The Faint-Hearted

Yehuda & Maya Devir

In this illustration though, the artist depicts how the situation is sometimes so messy down there that it requires taking cover. For the parent who is not on duty though, it can be extremely entertaining.

3. The First Time The Baby Latches

The first time the baby latches can be a magical and highly awaited moment for new mothers. But it is important to emphasize that breastfeeding can be a hard and often tumultuous journey, that its’ not always easy for everyone.

The First Time The Baby Latches

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Yet, it can certainly serve as an incomparable bonding experience for the mother and the child, which makes that first moment one of the most special milestones of having a child.

4. When The Baby Refuses To Fall Asleep

Sleep deprivation is a huge thing once you have a baby. No matter how many times other parents tell you that sleep will never be the same, one only understands what that really means once the baby is there.

When The Baby Refuses To Fall Asleep

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Here, the illustrator realistically shows just how exhausting some nights may be, especially when the baby simply refuses to fall asleep.

5. Their First Bath Doesn’t Always Go As Planned

Since almost everything about having a small baby is an adventure, bath time is certainly not an exception. Most especially though, the first baths can definitely require two people managing the entire situation.

Their First Bath Doesn't Always Go As Planned

Yehuda & Maya Devir

There are so many steps that go into bathing a baby: getting the right water temperature, choosing the perfect bathtub, but most of all, keeping the baby safe and happy during the entire process.

6. Those First Shots Are Also A Shot To The Heart

Getting vaccinated in general is already a tough experience, but watching your newborn go through their first few shots is incredibly painful.

Those First Shots Are Also A Shot To The Heart

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Though the pain is not inflicted directly on the parent, most parents can testify to the fact that they do “feel” the pain, mainly in their hearts. As both parents show here, the pain is shared.

7. It May Take Some Time Until You Sleep Again

When you have a baby, suddenly falling asleep absolutely everywhere and at any time may become a recurring situation. But there is nothing more rewarding than doing so together, since each parent will be exhausted.

It May Take Some Time Until You Sleep Again

Yehuda & Maya Devir

In this picture, the young couple depicts the beauty of going through something so hard together. As the real-life portrait of the family shared here, they have clearly survived and thrived despite those sleepless nights. 

8. You Have To Be Prepared At All Times

Just like any adult can have acid reflux, babies have what’s known as infant reflux. This means that most, if not all babies, do vomit from time to time, especially in the first weeks and months of their lives.

You Have To Be Prepared At All Times

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Anything from prolonged crying or regular indigestion may result in it. So brace yourselves new parents because the vomiting is about to begin.

9. Parenting Can Be Really Tough Sometimes

Times can get really tough when you’re a first-time parent. Though the happy moments certainly make up for the hard times, anyone is susceptible to feeling like they’re not doing a good job at being a dad or a mom.

Parenting Can Be Really Tough Sometimes

Yehuda & Maya Devir

This illustration painfully shows that sometimes all we need is to cry in our partner’s arms and to be reminded that we are worth it, and despite the difficulties, we are wonderful parents.

10. Going Anywhere Becomes The Ultimate Mission

When you have a baby going anywhere, even to a short walk to the park, becomes the ultimate mission. You always want to be as prepared as possible, meaning that you may need tons of things to keep your baby clean, fed, and happy.

Going Anywhere Becomes The Ultimate Mission

Yehuda & Maya Devir

And of course, if the outing involves two people, there is always that one person that carries the entire thing.

11. Getting The Baby Dressed Is A Job For Two

Even though a baby is a tiny little thing in comparison to an adult, when they arrive, they rule the house. And sometimes simple jobs such as getting them dressed while they’rere constantly moving or throwing a tantrum can easily be a job for two.

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Here, the illustrator shows the struggle that he and his wife sometimes go through to get the baby dressed.

12. The First Time You Leave The Baby Overnight

There are a number of milestones parents go through as the baby grows up that can feel like the end of the world. Parents are still people after all, and they need some time for themselves every once in a while.

The First Time You Leave The Baby Overnight

Yehuda & Maya Devir

In this image, the parents have just left their baby with the grandmother overnight for the first time, and the mother is not taking it so easily.

13. Couples Who Get Chubby Together, Stay Together

Many of us have seen the hashtag #couplegoals going around, showcasing “perfect” couples with the most ripped bodies we can imagine. Well, this illustrator decided to keep things real.

Couples Who Get Chubby Together, Stay Together

Yehuda & Maya Devir

He shows that things do change over time, and our clothes may never look or fit the same. Yet, there is nothing more beautiful to go through this journey together, acknowledging that health and love are all that matters.

14. Those Aggressive Love Scratches

Babies have interesting ways of showing their love and affection. Just like grown-ups, some babies are very “independent”. Other babies do certainly love to cuddle, and since they are babies, those hugs and kisses may come accompanied with some scratches and a lot of drool.

Those Aggressive Love Scratches

Yehuda & Maya Devir

For parents though, those moments are cherished with so much love that the extra stuff doesn’t matter.

15. The Baby Rules The Bed

Parents from all walks of life approach sleep training differently. While some try and have their babies sleep in their crib from the very beginnings, other parents are more flexible with sleeping with the baby on the bed with them.

The Baby Rules The Bed

Yehuda & Maya Devir

But those who do will most certainly identify with this hilarious image. The couple clearly shows just how the child completely takes over the bed at night.

16. Everything Shuts Down When You’re Putting The Baby To Sleep

Putting the baby to sleep is another arduous ritual that most parents will relate to. When they finally figure out what helps their baby fall asleep they do everything in their power to keep the moment as uninterrupted as possible.

Everything Shuts Down When You're Putting The Baby To Sleep

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Absolutely anything can disrupt the moment, so when the baby finally falls asleep, everyone is determined to make it last.

17. The First Time They Go To Daycare Is Just Painful

Now here’s another milestone that breaks many parents. It takes a lot of strength and determination to keep ourselves together the first day we leave our children at daycare.

The First Time They Go To Daycare Is Just Painful

Yehuda & Maya Devir

The baby cries, the parents cry, other kids start crying, and the entire experience is just chaotic and heartbreaking. Yet, like many other things that are hard in parenthood, it gets better.

18. It’s A Food Fight Every Day

In many ways, raising a baby means experiencing simple things for the first time through the eyes of a tiny human being. One of these things includes introducing solid food and different flavors that the baby may or may not like.

It's A Food Fight Every Day

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Here, the parents not only show the daily reality of feeding a baby (which means food all over the place), but also the struggle that it can be sometimes.

19. Showing Affection Becomes A Little Bit Different

It’s undeniable that things change in a relationship once a baby joins the family. Life does become about the well-being of that child, and parents often put their relationship second.

Showing Affection Becomes A Little Bit Different

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Simple moments like giving a small kiss, lying down on the couch or in bed watching a movie, or going for a romantic picnic, are altered a little bit to accommodate the cute and tiny human being.

20. You Get To Create Masterpieces With Your Baby’s Hair

Doing a child’s hair is yet again another mission that may or may not take much longer than anyone would ever expect. To this father’s satisfaction though, he seems to have just triumphed in making a cute hairstyle for his toddler.

As Kobe Bryant reminded the world, being a “girl dad” comes with some awesome perks. Here, we finally get to see the dad and the baby girl that has inspired some of the most relatable illustrations any parent will ever see.

This Is What Father And Daughter Get Up To In Real Life

Yehuda & Maya Devir

In this cute selfie, he shows just how much fun it is to do her hair while hilariously matching it with his. But if you think they look alike in this photo, wait until you see the entire family’s real-life photo.

22. Nursing A Teething Baby

Not many things can describe the pain of breastfeeding a teething baby. While breastfeeding itself is already no easy task, when those little teeth start coming up the pain is inexpressible.

Nursing A Teething Baby

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Needless to say that it’s the kind of pain that one never gets used to, so it takes some teamwork to get through it. One thing that could help, as illustrated above, is squeezing your partner.

23. Your Life Become All About The Baby

It may take a while to grasp the full chaotic situation in this picture, so take your time. Perhaps there is no better illustration to show just how much goes on when raising a child.

Your Life Become All About The Baby

Yehuda & Maya Devir

The exhaustion is constant, toys can be found everywhere, and a nap may happen at any time, or depending on the baby’s schedule. Here, the parents are all wrapped up in each other taking a much-needed snooze.

24. Documenting Every Milestone

Documenting every step and every moment of a child’s development is crucial for any parent. With phones being an integral part of our lives these days, we get to capture and sometimes even over-capture every important moment in a child’s life.

Documenting Every Milestone

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Here, the couple is witnessing the first time their baby starts crawling. Quickly, they grabbed their phone and snapped every part of it.

25. Mama For Everyone

This might be one of the most hilarious and relatable pictures of the series. As we said, when a child is born, the dynamics of a couple’s relationship may change a little.

Mama For Everyone

Yehuda & Maya Devir

In this drawing though, the illustrator decided to make one thing very clear. He was as excited to see his wife undress for her much-deserved shower as their child was.

26. You May Never Get To Do Anything Alone Again

Parents-to-be may not know this, but once there is a child in the home, almost nothing can ever be done alone again.

You May Never Get To Do Anything Alone Again

Yehuda & Maya Devir

That includes sleeping alone, walking around the house alone, and even the most private moment like using the toilet alone. Children require attention and if that means following a parent absolutely everywhere, they are ready to do it.

27. Intimate Time Also Looks A Bit Different

Continuing the argument that nothing will ever be the same again, here’s another perfect example of it.

Intimate Time Also Looks A Bit Different

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Yes, even the most intimate and necessary moments in a couple’s life become completely different when there is a baby in the picture. In this case, the new parents were in a “bonding moment” when their kid started crying – who can’t relate?

28. When You Find Out You Have Less Hair

Many of us unfortunately experience hair loss as we get older, especially if we live stressful lives. Now, having a baby can be stressful, though our bodies react differently.

When You Find Out You Have Less Hair

Yehuda & Maya Devir

In this illustration, the artist shares his desperation when he realizes he’s losing tons of hair, while his wife’s “Rapunzel” hair becomes stronger by the minute.

29. The First Time Your Baby Says “Mama”

Any parent cherishes the anticipation of hearing their child calling them “mama” or “papa” for the first time. In this hilarious drawing, the artist illustrated his wife’s reaction to their daughter saying “mama” for the first time.

The First Time Your Baby Says "Mama"

Yehuda & Maya Devir

He humorously suggests that her happy tears were so many that he barely managed to walk without getting completely wet. What can you do, that’s what a mother’s love looks like!

30. You Realize That Baby Poop Is Lethal

One thing’s for sure, no matter how cute and adorable a baby may be, when it comes to farting and pooping there is nothing cute about it. Those very natural occurrences can have the most lethal smell one can imagine.

You Realize That Baby Poop Is Lethal

Yehuda & Maya Devir

In this illustration, the guy alludes to the many times our partners walk up with the baby just after they pooped, not taking into consideration the fact that we may be in the middle of a meal.

31. Going To The Beach Looks Different

“Bouncing back” after having a child is hard, and unfortunately not enough people talk about this. Women all over the world struggle to come to terms with the fact that bodies change after literally growing, carrying, and birthing a child.

Going To The Beach Looks Different

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Here, the artist decided to pinpoint that it may take some time for the mother to feel comfortable again to show off that beach body again.

32. Mission Accomplished

There is something so powerful about seeing our partners grow into wonderful mothers and fathers. How many parents have had that appreciation and admiration moment for the exhausted yet incredible partners they chose to raise a child with?

Mission Accomplished

Yehuda & Maya Devir

In this powerful documentation of their daily lives, the artist shares the moment his wife fell asleep putting their baby to bed while the baby instinctively clings to her mom’s arms.

33. What Putting The Baby To Sleep In Real Life Looks Like

Now here’s another incredibly cute picture that the illustrator himself graced his social media followers with – him as he holds his daughter. While the sacred moment of putting a baby to bed in the evening can come with its challenges, there are days where all the baby wants is a cuddle.

What Putting The Baby To Sleep In Real Life Looks Like

Yehuda & Maya Devir

This picture is a clear example of one of those days, where holding that baby is a reminder that the challenges and the hard times mean little when we get to have our baby in our arms.

34. Desperately Baby Proofing The House

While each milestone may signify something enormous, there is something powerfully chaotic that happens once a child starts walking.

Desperately Baby Proofing The House

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Not many parents realize how this completely changes things since the child can now reach and bump into places that she has never reached before. Here, both parents are quickly baby proofing the house as quickly as possible before the child destroys everything.

35. When You Swim As A Family

Needless to say that there is always that one person who loves peeing in the pool. But when you have a kid, you can basically blame all of these little things on the baby, especially when they can’t talk yet.

When You Swim As A Family

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Unfortunately for the dad though, he didn’t realize that in some pools there is a little product that calls you out as soon as you pee underwater.

36. The Difference A Screen Makes

Introducing screens to small babies is one of the most debatable subjects in the parenting community everywhere in the world.

The Difference A Screen Makes

Yehuda & Maya Devir

But for parents who do decide to introduce their kids to some screen time, the feeling of realizing that something can in fact keep them hypnotized for more than five minutes is humongous. In this picture, the artist shows just how fascinating that realization can be for parents.

37. Sometimes All You Need Is A Break

Another very relatable moment for a parent is that one (or two, or three) time that you simply can no longer deal with a crying baby.

Sometimes All You Need Is A Break

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Tantrums happen, and when they do, it can be extremely overwhelming. So if hiding in the closet or in a dark room for a bit while our partner deals with the situation are what is going to keep you going, then you do you!

38. It Takes A Team To Complete All Baby Tasks

It takes time to master the art of attending to all of our baby’s needs. Parents worldwide will agree that in order to get things done, a support system is crucial.

It Takes A Team To Complete All Baby Tasks

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Some jobs just need two pairs of hands to be done and this drawing emphasizes why. Both parents seem to be extremely concentrated as they do their best to follow through with a thousand baby tasks.

39. When You Just Need To Grow Up

Growing up has its perks, but it also comes with a bunch of responsibilities. Though the illustrator shared this one as a joke, it’s a good wake-up call for those very supportive partners out there to step up in their home duties.

When You Just Need To Grow Up

Yehuda & Maya Devir

He jokingly shows the moment he was put on grocery shopping duty but had absolutely no idea what pasta to buy. Thankfully, his wife believes in him.

40. You Always Think You Know What’s Best For The Baby

Now here’s another one that really takes things home for any parent. Every single parent out there believes that they know exactly what is best for their child. An in some cases parents don’t always agree, so the recurrent argument of “I know what’s best for her” comes through every once in a while.

You Always Think You Know What's Best For The Baby

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Yet, it’s an important reminder that though it’s tough, it all comes from love and wanting the wellbeing of their child.

41. When You Pass On To Another Stage

This illustration signifies so much for any parent. It highlights the different stages that every parent experiences with their children, be it the first time they walk, their first word, the first day of daycare, the first day of primary school, and the list goes on.

When You Pass On To Another Stage

Yehuda & Maya Devir

For the artist himself, he chose to share the day he and his wife had been parents for a year and a half, and despite the hardships, had been successfully raising a beautiful girl together.

42. When You Surrender To Tiredness Together

Having discipline is good and necessary, but seriously, which parents out there can’t say that they haven’t given in to the exhaustion every once in a while.

When You Surrender To Tiredness Together

Yehuda & Maya Devir

As much as it’s important to keep eating healthy and exercising even when our routines completely change with a baby, we all need a break. So parents (and non-parents) will easily relate to choosing to eat snacks and lay on the couch instead of doing everything else.

43. “You Are Gonna Be A Big Sister”

Bringing a sibling to the world is a chapter that many parents dream of. Growing a family is a big thing, and one of the most magical and scariest moments for any parent.

"You Are Gonna Be A Big Sister"

Yehuda & Maya Devir

This drawing, however, shares the joy and the hope that comes from the first ultrasound of a second baby in the family. It also shares the moment they get to tell their baby girl that she is about to become a big sister.

44. Here’s The Actual Family!

In this family portrait, we finally get to see the entire family behind the incredible illustrations in this article. The pair began dating as students in college and since then, they have earned an avid following from all over the world, after going viral in 2017.

Here's The Actual Family!

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Since then, they have won several awards for their talented depiction of real-life scenarios, and perhaps, the next illustration couldn’t be more accurate to real life.

45. Easing your Baby’s Pain

And lastly, there is no better way to conclude this series of illustrations with one of the most relatable of all, doing everything in our power to ease our baby’s pain.

Easing your Baby's Pain

Yehuda & Maya Devir

Our hearts hurt when our babies hurt themselves, so although the tactics are different, any parent will relate to making a drawing on a bandage, “hitting” the object that hurt the child, or giving a kiss on the wound so that it eases the baby’s pain.

Relatable Illustrations About The Struggles Of Raising A Baby

This article was originally published on ParentMood

There’s nothing like starting a family and welcoming your firstborn. That’s why Maya and Yehuda Devir have been documenting their life together through marriage, pregnancy, and the challenges of raising their little girl with relatable hand-drawn photos. Whether it’s poopy diapers, sleepless nights, or milestones like their baby’s first word, these two aren’t afraid to share it in a way we all can relate to. Don’t forget to stick around til the end for a special photo of the couple with their beautiful baby girl in real life!

“We’re Pregnant!”

For so many couples, it is a dream to get pregnant and start a family. After trying for a while, Yehuda and Maya finally got a positive result and couldn’t have been happier. It is a celebratory moment because they are so excited to begin this new chapter of life. 

"We're Pregnant!"

Yehuda Devir

They have talked about starting a family for so long, and their plans are finally coming to life. This is one of the most amazing moments in their relationship, and it is something a couple will never forget. 

It’s Go Time

It’s finally time to go to the hospital, but you might want to only bring the essentials instead of everything in the house. Instead of bringing everything you own, it is best to prepare a bag for the hospital, so you aren’t running around when its go time. 

It's Go Time

Yehuda Devir

After the long nine months, it is finally time to meet their baby. Although they look panicked, they are just over the moon about bringing home their new baby. This is a milestone moment in many people’s lives, and it is a joyous and scary time. 

Welcoming The Sweetest Angel

When you can’t get enough of your newborn baby, and you want to stare at her all day long. Everything she does is adorable, even her drool and dirty diapers. They can’t believe that they created such an adorable baby girl. Most people would enjoy her sleeping moments while they last. 

Welcoming The Sweetest Angel

Yehuda Devir

There are so many exciting moments when you bring your baby home, and everything they do is something to document. Even though she might have a smelly diaper, they can’t get over how sweet she looks. They might not think the baby is so cute when they go to change that diaper. 

Exhaustion Is An Understatement

“She never stops crying!!!” Once the baby is up, it is hard to put her back to sleep. It seems like she never stops crying. ​There are many exciting moments, but the sleepless nights are not something that you can prepare for. It might be time to get some caffeine and prepare for another long sleepless night. 

Exhaustion Is An Understatement

Yehuda Devir

Some people who are not parents might ask you why you are exhausted all the time because babies are supposed to sleep a lot, but they don’t understand. 

“It’s About To Blow!”

When it comes to changing dirty diapers, some people are more dramatic than others. He decided to take one for the team to clean up this mess. How can such a tiny person make such a giant mess, it is mind-boggling. Even baby hulk is afraid. 

"It's About To Blow!"

Yehuda Devir

At first, changing diapers is like going to battle, but once you get the hang of it, it is a piece of cake. At first, those diapers can burn the inside of your nose, but eventually, you get used to the smell or figure out that vapor rub blocks your nose from bad odors. 

If One Person Feels Pain, We Are All In Pain

New baby teeth are like razors. When they are starting to get teeth and still breastfeeding, things can get painful very quickly. Good thing she has her husband’s hair to grab onto to share the pain with him. If she has to feel pain, so does he because they are a team and in this journey together. 

If One Person Feels Pain, We Are All In Pain

Yehuda Devir

It is always when you least expect it that your child starts using their teeth to chomp down on one of your most sensitive parts. Obviously, they don’t know any better, but that doesn’t mean it hurts any less. 

Caught Up In Feelings Of Doubt

Nobody comes totally prepared with how to raise a child, it’s something you learn as you go along and, just like with everything else, you’re bound to make mistakes. It’s those moments, laying in bed with your partner when your mind starts to race and that self-doubt starts creeping in.

Caught Up In Feelings Of Doubt

We can all totally relate to this photo even if we don’t have children. We’re all worried about something and every now and then we all start to get filled with doubts at our ability to perform a certain task. It’s moments like these that we need our loved ones the most, to give us the support needed to succeed.

New Baby, New Bodies

After having children and changing lifestyles, you should embrace the changes that your bodies go through. ​You love your partner no matter what changes their body goes through because change can be good.

New Baby, New Bodies

Yehuda Devir

Although it can be hard to accept that your body looks different, you have to remember that you brought a beautiful child into the world. It’s ok to gain weight, and it is ok to lose weight. You are not alive just to pay bills and lose weight; You are beautiful no matter what.

Bath Time Is A Family Affair

Giving a bath to a baby is a whole different and wet war. It seems like eventually, both parents get their shower as well. She has a lot more power and strength than people would think. When she doesn’t want a bath, she will make it impossible to give her one.

Bath Time Is A Family Affair

Yehuda Devir

Some parents might say they don’t have time to shower because they are always watching the baby. However, it seems like whenever she has bath time, everyone who is involved gets just as soapy as she does. Might as well kill two birds with one stone. 

Nap Time For Everyone

After many sleepless nights, the baby finally calms down and takes a nap. This is the perfect time for you and your partner to get some rest as well. Who knows when you will be able to sleep for more than an hour again? You might as well enjoy it while it lasts. 

Nap Time For Everyone

Yehuda Devir

The baby took a much-needed break from crying to have a meal, and while she drifted into a milk induced sleep, her parents drifted off as well. Even though it is not the most comfortable position to sleep in, you must be too tired to care. 

Tiny Yet Mighty

Sometimes babies show their affection through drooling and scratching, and it might be painful, but she loves you. Maya looks like a lion has attacked her, but it is just a powerful baby. Yehuda is so proud of his little girl. 

Tiny Yet Mighty

Yehuda Devir

Babies have the sharpest little fingernails, and their scratches feel like the claws of a bear. Who knew such a small human could pack such a powerful punch. Besides their sharp nails and flailing limbs, babies also enjoy teething on your face and pulling hair. 

One Shot And Many Tears Shed

It is hard to see your child get a shot for the first time, but they only cry more because they see their parents crying. We aren’t quite sure who cried more in this situation. The nurse said it would be a small pinch, but they didn’t hear her mention a broken hand.

One Shot And Many Tears Shed

Yehuda Dvir

There is something about seeing your child get their first shot, which makes you extra emotional. While you know from experience that she will never remember this, and it is only just a small pinch, you still can’t bear to watch. 

The First Time Away

Leaving the baby with relatives for the first time can be very difficult. It is the first time you are going to be separated from your child since they were born, and it is emotional.  ​Nothing will happen to the baby, they will be just fine, but there is still a feeling of longing to be with them and protect them.

The First Time Away

Yehuda Devir

Although you might be headed for a sweet getaway, you still want to see your baby every day and make sure they are ok. What if they forgot about you after a day? What if your baby misses you? These are all questions that might run through your mind, but remember your baby is doing just fine. 

Picture Perfect Timing

Everyone loves how cute babies are until they spit-up all over you. Luckily, Maya was there to capture this perfect moment. We just hope he had his mouth closed. Even though she spit-up on him, it is hard to be mad at that adorable face. 

Picture Perfect Timing

Yehuda Devir

Unfortunately, it is not always rainbows and unicorns when you have a baby, so there are going to be days filled with spit-up and dirty diapers. You are lucky if you make it through a day without a stained article of clothing. Luckily, you have no time to do all the laundry that is piling up. 

Sit And Stay!

When you have a small child that you need to watch, but you also have to go to the bathroom desperately. There is only one thing to do in this situation, and that is to treat your baby like a dog by telling her to stay. 

Sit And Stay!

Yehuda Devir

You might think they are sitting right outside the door, but they are actually breaking havoc on your home. You might have only been in the bathroom for a minute, but they managed to grab the finger paint and turn the walls into their personal art studio. 

All Hands On Deck

Babies are all kinds of squirmy when you have to put clothes on them. They might be tiny humans, but their bodies possess an explosive power that you wouldn’t believe existed. You never know what will happen when you have to dress your baby. 

All Hands On Deck

Yehuda Devir

Who knew how much power those tiny feet had. They needed two sets of hands to get her squirmy little feet in the socks. Babies love to flail around when you are trying to get them ready for the day, as if they know you are in a hurry. 

“We Didn’t Forget Anything At Home, Right?”

Parenthood is such a beautiful blessing. It’s even better when you have to leave the house with a million things “just in case”, and end up not using any of it. Although, when you pack light, you end up needing something that you thought was non-essential. 

"We Didn't Forget Anything At Home, Right?"

Yehuda Devir

After a while, you realize what you need and don’t need, but the first outing is always the scariest. Will the baby suddenly need a winter coat in the middle of summer? You don’t know, but you probably packed on just in case an ice storm blows through. 

Paparazzi Parents

Did you get that on video? Did you see the 400 pictures I took of the baby sleeping earlier? When you have a child, you want to capture all of their milestone moments, which means you always have to have a camera ready. These memories will be ones you will look back on throughout their life.

Paparazzi Parents

Yehuda Devir

While your child might start to think that a smartphone is part of your body, you don’t want to miss anything special. You can capture their first laugh, first steps, and their first words to remember forever. When they grow up, you can show them how silly they were as a child.

Everyone Always Needs Something

After a long day of chasing the baby around the apartment, changing diapers, and getting food thrown at you, it is time for a shower and some relaxation. Just when you are winding down for the day, it seems like everyone wants a piece of you. 

Everyone Always Needs Something

Yehuda Devir

All-day, you have been dreaming about the relaxing hot shower you were going to take, and then your husband gives you his “sexy look.” You don’t feel cute, but it is endearing that after a long day, he finds you the most attractive. 

Who Knew Hands Could Be So Entertaining

Shadow puppets can be fun for the whole family if you really work with your imagination. All you need is a flashlight, a dark room, and your hands to created magical fun while your child is young enough to be impressed. This dazzling show will entertain them for a few minutes, at least. 

Who Knew Hands Could Be So Entertaining

Yehuda Devir

Not only is this a creative way to entertain your toddler, but it is another way to bond with your family. Try looking up different ways to contort your hands, just make sure not to get a cramp. Look, even baby hulk and her unicorn friend are impressed. 

“Does She Smell?”

When you are trying to eat your lunch, and your wife decides it is the perfect time for you to smell if the baby has a dirty diaper. Not only does the smell make your nostrils burn, but you can also never eat spaghetti again. 

"Does She Smell?"

Yehuda Devir

Although you two have become extremely comfortable with each other throughout your relationship, this crosses the line. Who would want to smell a dirty diaper while they are in the middle of eating? That will make anyone sick to their stomach. 

“She Said Mama!”

“OH. MY. G-D, Did you hear her say, Mama?! This is the best day of my life. She knows my name.” When your child finally says “mama,” it is the greatest feeling in the world. Grab the tissues to soak up all those happy tears because you won’t be able to get over this feeling of pure joy. 

"She Said Mama!"

Yehuda Devir

It is even more heartwarming when your child says mama before dada. It is like winning a silent competition between you and your partner. Your toddler might not understand why you are so happy, but it will only encourage them to say mama more often. 

When All The Housework Is Finally Finished

When you finally put the baby to sleep and get some time to relax, just the two of you; it can quickly turn into your own time to sleep. ​You don’t care where you fall asleep because it is the first time you get to go to sleep at a reasonable hour.

When All The Housework Is Finally Finished

Yehuda Devir

Although there is so much tidying left to do, you don’t care because the house will just get messy again tomorrow. All you can really think about is your bed and pillow until your child decides to wake you up in the middle of the night.

“Oh Hair No!!”

Just as your wife is walking around shedding hair like it is no problem, you are discovering a bald patch. It is like sirens are going off in your head that you are getting older, and questions are racing around your mind. How long do you have before it gets bigger? Do you need hair plugs?

"Oh Hair No!!"

Yehuda Devir

Not to worry, just brush your hair in a different way to hide the patch. You can even use all the hair your wife sheds to create a mini toupee to cover up the spot. While it might seem like your world is crumbling around you, it is just one of the small problems that comes with age. 

EveryBody Is Beautiful

After having a baby, our bodies go through changes. Many people feel insecure about their post-baby bodies, but they forget that they just created human life. Your body was capable of creating another human, so why should women feel ashamed of the changes that happen during pregnancy?

EveryBody Is Beautiful

Yehuda Devir

Although some people might feel insecure, it is crucial to remember that no matter what, your husband thinks you are perfect, and your child would not be here without the help of your powerful body. 

Everyone’s Getting Comfortable

Sleeping with a baby in bed is like sleeping with a drunken octopus. Their legs and arms are flying all over the place, and you might just get kicked in the face. ​It is a fun way to be woken up. That little body can take up so much space, and you lose your spot on the bed.

Everyone's Getting Comfortable

Yehuda Devir

Although you are being kicked out of bed by a 35-pound human, you can’t help but give up and sleep on the couch, so you don’t disturb them. Sometimes moving is worth letting them get a few extra hours of sleep rather than waking the baby up to put her back in the crib.

Stuck Inside

Just when they were getting in the hang of parenting, a global pandemic strikes, and they got locked in their apartment for two months. How do you keep your toddler active and get housework done without leaving the confines of your apartment?

Stuck Inside

Yehuda Devir

No matter how much you may love your child, you can always use a break from them each day. When you are stuck inside, you have to think of exciting things to keep them active.

Sweet Dreams

After a long day of taking care of your toddler, most people are daydreaming about their beds. Sometimes, you are so exhausted that you don’t even make it to the bed before you fall asleep. At some point, the exhaustion becomes too much, and you start sleeping while standing up. 

Sweet Dreams

Yehuda Devir

Her husband is waiting for the perfect moment to scoop his wife up and carry her to bed because she deserves a good night’s sleep. The big question is how he can get the baby off of his wife, so he doesn’t wake her up too. 

Protect The Baby At All Costs!

All for one and one for all! Protect the baby from the bugs at all costs because bugs are scary and gross. ​Her parents are warriors who fight bugs off while making sure the baby is still asleep. Those are the real heroes of society. 

Protect The Baby At All Costs!

Yehuda Devir

No one ever wants their baby to have bug bites or be uncomfortable, so you protect them however possible. Mosquitos are the number one enemy, even for adults, and they must be destroyed. 

Family Cuddles

Family cuddle time is the best time when everyone is comfortable. No one is getting kicked in the head, and no one is being pushed off the bed; everyone is peaceful. Even the stuff animals are getting some shut-eye with the family. 

Family Cuddles

Yehuda Devir

These are the moments people pinch themselves because life seems so perfect. You can forget about everything else around you and focus on how comfortable and snuggly you feel. 

Summertime Fun

When you finally get to go on your first vacation as a family, and soon realize your child enjoys peeing in the pool more than any other place. At first, you blame it on one of the other swimmers or your partner, but the real culprit is the one who is not potty trained. 

Summertime Fun

Yehuda Devir

At least you have someone to blame from now on, and you can stop worrying about the embarrassment of peeing in the pool. As long as it is chlorinated, who cares? Just don’t try to blame it on your wife. 

“What Is This Type Of Magic?”

As soon as your child discovers their love for television, it is like they are mesmerized. They could be entertained for hours, but that is not exactly healthy for a developing brain. It is a good distraction for a few times a day, but don’t let them get addicted. 

"What Is This Type Of Magic?"

Yehuda Devir

Toddlers can sit in front of the TV for days without knowing what is happening around them because it is like a magical machine. It is moving colors, lights, and talking animals. Who wouldn’t be hypnotized by all those things? 

Time To Baby-Proof The House

“Oh, no! She’s walking, remove everything from the floor, tables, and cabinets. We need all the baby-proofing supplies.” As soon as your child starts walking, it is time to lock everything up. Anything that they can eat, chew on, or get hurt with needs to be placed out of reach. 

Time To Baby-Proof The House

Yehuda Devir

While you are filled with excitement about this significant milestone, you also have this feeling that they are growing up too fast and can get hurt. Also, you have to remember that the baby needs to be watched even more now that she can walk around the house. 

Baby’s First Birthday!

When your first child turns one, it is a time to celebrate. It is the first of many birthday parties, and you want it to be as special as possible, which means you want to spoil them for an entire day. Although they won’t remember, you can shower them in hundreds of gifts to celebrate this milestone. 

Baby's First Birthday!

Yehuda Devir

Your baby might be more interested in the boxes and string that come with the presents, but it doesn’t matter as long as they are happy. You could probably give your one-year-old an old shoe, and they would be just as satisfied as they were with a barbie doll. 

A Masterpiece In The Making

When your husband does your daughter’s hair for the first time, and it is a series of tiny ponytails, but they are so proud of their work. ​You don’t want to ruin all the work they have done, so you leave the ten different ponytails in for the day.

A Masterpiece In The Making

Yehuda Devir

Eventually, they will figure out how to make it look better, but it might take a few weeks of practice. You have to give your husband credit for at least trying considering they have never done this to their own hair. 

“Take Cover!”

Feeding a baby is like having a food fight with an uncovered blender. The food gets everywhere, and even in places, you didn’t know food could reach. Put the food out and take cover because it is about to get very messy. Get your mop ready because the food is about to go all over the walls and ceiling.

"Take Cover!"

Yehuda Devir

It’s every man for themself because the baby is like a spewing volcano of food. There is nowhere to hide, especially when you give them something messy like spaghetti and tomato sauce. For the first few years of life, it might be smart not to wear anything white.

“Do We Have To Leave Her Here?”

The first day of daycare is always the hardest, but she now gets to socialize with other babies. It is only for a few hours a day, but it feels like a lifetime when you first drop them off. ​Once you leave, your baby will stop crying, and they will have fun once they adjust.

"Do We Have To Leave Her Here?"

Yehuda Devir

It is not like you are leaving your baby forever; it is only for a few hours so that you can work and get some much-needed rest. Don’t worry; if you are ever concerned, you just have to remember that baby hulk is in daycare to watch over the baby.

Kisses For Everyone

No matter how much drool you are covered in, there is always time for kisses. Everyone is in on the family hug, and it is the best feeling. Even while your baby is using your chin as a teething toy, you can sneak in an extra kiss.

Finally, the chores have all been done, the baby has been put to bed, and now there’s nothing left to do but sit on the couch and enjoy a few quiet and peaceful moments before finally heading to bed.

They’re The Real Deal

Raising a family is hard, there’s no doubt about that. But at the end of the day, it’s still one of the most rewarding things that we will ever do with our lives. In spite of it all, the ups and downs, there are few people who would ever change a thing.
