As thrilled as we were to see (well-rested looking) Dylan and her (remarkably well-behaved) little one, she might have been even more excited to see us. "I'm so happy to be having adult interaction!" she said. "I haven't talked to humans in like a month."

Good morning 💕💕 #armcandy (photo by @fishlense )

All jokes aside, we think we have a contact high from our brief video chat, in which Dylan described motherhood as the "ultimate joy."

"I don't care how tired I feel," she said. "I see his face and I just fall in love every single time I look at him ... I've never been happier."

Happy Lazy Sunday! ❤️❤️❤️

We can't help ourselves! He's just so adorable.

One of her other favorite moments is watching her husband Brian fall in love with Calvin.

Aww, look at those two!

Of course, new motherhood is not without its occasional indignities. Dylan shared that Calvin has a healthy appetite, jokingly describing herself as a "human cow."

And it turns out Matt's warning about the "deflector shield" at the changing table was not to be taken lightly. Dylan's biggest surprise of motherhood? "Pee flies everywhere!"

Just embrace it, Dylan — before you know it, you'll be teaching him to put the seat down. Oh and if we hadn't said it already, motherhood looks great on you!
