I have a lot to soak in. A lot to take time for, just to breathe it all in.
Because these days, they don't last.
The sweetness, the smallness, the blissfulness.
It is easier to take time to breathe when I am mentally more present, which I am blessed to report I am now feeling since we have figured out a sleeping method!
Last night for instance I got 3, 3 hour chunks. Ohh sweet sleep relief. I am not in the sad blue cloud I was in, I have patience and love OHHH do I have love. With Ivy and Ayla the lack of sleep as newborns caused me to get frustrated with them as babies, interestingly through that first sleep deprived week with Kian I never was once mad with him. For the least amount of sleep I have ever suffered I was in a pretty good mental space at night with him. I am proud of me and him for that.
We are doing really well. Sleep helps so much. Breathing in these days, moments helps so much.
Thank you for all your dear advice, I wanted to reply to you all, but it is hard to find non breastfeeding, holding baby time to be on the computer much!
Happy Weekend All.
We will be here, breathing in the newborness of our sweet Kian, my little son.
