When I smell his sweet breath,
when hear his tiny coos,
when I watch him smile back at me or kick his feet in excitement,
when I feel his soft warm skin against my cheek as he snuggles up against me,
I realize that every second of sleep lost has and will continue to be worth it.
I love mommy-hood so much. Even when it means days where I’m less than happy or nights when I don’t know how I’m going to keep my eyes open one second longer. The challenge is remembering the beautiful moments in the middle of the stressful ones.
I’m doing much better this past week and I’m so thankful for all the words of encouragement that let me know I’m not alone. You changed my perspective and helped me more than you know.
