As I type, Rose is asleep in the baby carrier, head resting against my chest. I have to admit that I'm a bit tired as the parent of a newborn. Yet, the lack of sleep, the changing and washing of diapers, and the preparation of bottles all mean that I have this incredible human being in my life. Through my sleep-deprived fog, I am deliriously happy. I wouldn't at all change a thing. Well, I would love more sleep, but we can't have everything, can we?! The fact that I'm sleep-deprived is a tangible reminder of this incredible blessing.
There are two incredibly cute things Rose does. 1) Often after sneezing, she sighs. It goes like this. "Achoo. Aaahhh." And 2). After taking a burp break during feeding and you're wondering whether or not she would like more, she'll smack her lips together as a sign that she wants more.
I love these adorable tendencies in her and have shared them with her birth mother, who enjoyed hearing of them.
Tired, but blissfully happy mama signing out!
