Someday, you’ll sleep all night in your own bed. Maybe even on your back.
Someday you won’t want to nurse and I will miss your intense need to eat every hour and a half today.
When I thought about having a newborn, the thing I most looked forward to was having someone to snuggle who couldn’t get away. Your sweet snuggles make me blissful. The smell of your head is perfect.
Someday you might hate your near-Christmas birthday. But for me, it was a blessing to grow alongside Mary and feel her anticipation. And wonder how on earth she traveled on a donkey when she was quite possibly having contractions.
I love you super-duper much, baby boy. I promise I will try to not rush your newborn phase. I want to live in the now. Remind me of that at 3 a.m. when even the Miracle Blanket can’t convince you to sleep in your pack-and-play, OK?
Thank you for being such a sweet baby. Being your mommy is a finer thing.
