I have to admit that I've become pretty obsessed with finding other moms who are going through the same thing as me. One of the best blogs I've found is http://ashleighandshaun.blogspot.com/. She is so absolutely honest and it's a breath of fresh air to hear that having a baby isn't always happiness and light. She posted this poem which really resonated with me. I do feel like I'm almost wishing this newborn stage away. It's HARD. It sucks to be exhausted. And have sore boobs. And change 200 diapers a day. Oh and did I mention how much the crying fills me with fear? But it's shocking how much I love him already. And how much I'm going to miss this when it's gone.


You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These Are Some Good Times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
Don't blink, just like that you're six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you're twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife.
Don't blink, you just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your "better half"
Of fifty years is there in bed. And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think. So don't blink
So true… a hundred years is coming like a freight train and I want to freeze this moment in time, soak it all in, milk it for all it’s worth.

You're right. Some parts of the newborn stage suck so much!! It is really really hard, but it will go by faster than you know. I hope you have a lot of help right now so you can at least get a nap or two in. You can do it! I know you are doing an awesome job at being Jackson's mommy and he loves you for it!!

Thanks for posting that poem because its hard to remember how fast everything goes. It definitely put things in perspective and I'll be thinking about it at 3:00am when I'm up feeding Reagan. Hang in there...you are not alone in what you're going through!
