This Moment Will Pass

Sometimes when I'm alone with a cranky, crying baby I'm so tired I could cry. No one ever tells you it will be this hard. But then the moment passes and I look down at the sweet, tired newborn cradled in my lap and I realize what a blessing he truly is. The long, sleepless nights, sore boobs, overflowing poopy diapers, and crying will be a thing of the past. This moment will pass and someday I'll give anything to hold the weight of my sweet, sleepy newborn against my shoulder as we snuggle late at night. It's hard to appreciate it in the moment, but I will miss this.

I know how you feel about the exhaustion. Just when my daughter started sleeping through the night, the teething started and has not stopped. She is eleven months old. Nobody told me how hard this would be either, it surely is more challenging than anything I ever did at the office! Jackson is a cutie.
I like your blog, I;ll be back for sure. I also like your book list. Have read most of those myself. Might I suggest "the Heretic's Daughter" and "The Help" Not sure of the authors. Have a good day!
