Ashley Darby took the time to give BravoTV.com an exclusive update on her baby boy, Dean DarbyThe Real Housewives of Potomac cast member revealed how much Dean has grown and how she has been adjusting to motherhood — along with one major lesson she learned from it all.

In the video below, the new mom explains, "Baby D here is currently 10 weeks and it's been the most incredible experience so far. Dean has taught me a lot, mostly about patience. 

Clearly, the RHOP mom's lesson in patience is working out for her. Look at how calm baby Dean is in her arms!

However, not everything is sunshine and rainbows when it comes to motherhood. This becomes pretty evident when Ashley jokes, "Your shirt smells like throw up."

She adds, "And he is having a growth spurt I think right now because this is the second bottle that we've had to feed him in less than two hours! For breastfeeding moms, you know this liquid gold, it can be a little hard to come by that quickly — so, I think this growth spurt is really going to test us, but we're always going to come out on top."
