I am not a morning person. I don't do well on minuscule amounts of sleep. But you know what? I don't care! I'm having the best time waking up to feed my frantic son. The only time he flips out is when he wakes up hungry. We sleep from midnight to four am in the recliner and then we eat, and migrate to the bedroom with Jer. For some reason this works. In two months we'll work on getting him into his crib, but for now, he sleeps, I sleep and daddy (who has to work) sleeps!
This little man is just, so!! I am loving every moment I spend with him. My whole life I've been waiting to do this, and now that it's here, I am not disappointed. I am blown away by the absolute joy of it all.
When we first brought J. home, someone asked me if it was surreal. I have to say that it isn't. It is SO REAL! I practice yoga, which trains you to be in the moment, and I've never found it more valuable than this time with J. I spend a very little time planning things out for the future, I do it, it gets done, I have plans. But I spend more time taking in every little experience I have with this amazing little boy. He loves kisses, he does the whole open mouth thing and smiles when I give him big smooches and say "MWAH!" I swear he has a sense of humor already!
And he's a month old!!!
