I Almost Forgot...

…what it’s like to have a newborn baby.

The sleepless nights, the days without showers, the inability to remember the last time you fed yourself.

As Baby’s first birthday approaches with lightning speed, I’ve been filled with melancholy over his babyhood that will soon be nothing but a memory.

But now that Baby has another ear infection that has him waking up every hour, crying constantly, and clinging to Mommy and Daddy every moment of every day and night, I remember what those early days were really like.

I’m looking forward to the new adventure of toddlerhood.

Oh, poor Baby! I hope he's feeling better soon!

We lost a lot of sleep last week with Ladybug being up with teething pain. Which meant that she nursed a lot more, which means I have oversupply again! Oh the joys!

You know, there's something to be said for the pleasure of comforting a crying baby. As long as you're not doing it all freaking night.
