Newborn stage is hard; you’re sleep deprived, nursing every hour or so, burping, diapers, and trying to learn this new sweet little babes likes and dislikes.
BUT I love it. I love the coos, the squeaks, the enormously loud burps that don’t seem possible from such a small babe, and the snuggles. Oh the snuggles are heavenly.
My favorite part is in the quiet of the night when the house is still me and the baby are awake. His eyes are wide open staring up at me and me at him. Not every night is like this, most are a blur of tired nursing and zombie diaper changes. But I can’t help but feel close to my Heavenly Father in those still moments and thank Him for this responsibility of motherhood.
