Sometimes new parents give us tips as part of TODAY's Babies of the Week that are truly words to live by when surviving that first year of parenting.

Today

Brandy and Kris Ford, the parents of Olivia Jean Ford, born Aug. 28, say: “Accept any help if you are offered, especially food!”

Keep smiling: always good advice. “When you have been pooped on for the 3rd time at 4 a.m., the only way to get through it is to laugh," say Stephanie and Terrance O’Donnell, parents of Poppy Catherine O’Donnell, born Aug. 23. 

And there is the lesson of remembering priorities. “Forget the dishes and the laundry — spend time playing with your baby," advise Neal and Michelle Brasher, parents of Mirabelle Colette Brasher, born Aug. 21. 

Each week, Kathie Lee and Hoda select a few JOHNSON'S Babies of the Week to be featured on TODAY. And because your kids are way too cute to stop there, we choose more little ones for our online gallery.
