Look who I got to meet!! It’s Nathan. Remember when we were all awaiting his arrival. 🙂
I had such fun holding this sleeping, warm, soft little bub. When our session was done.. I didn’t want to leave. And I said so too.. But then I remembered how I used to walk around in a daze, waiting for the little person to finally go to sleep.
And then I would walk ever so carefully into the room to place them in their crib.
And then I would hold my breath…because as every young mom knows, one wrong breath can lead to the destruction of the napping procedure..
And then I would pray as I have never prayed before…”Please let them sleep so I can shower, and sleep for a minute, and brush my teeth, and maybe have a meal… Please!” But really, even if I got one of those things, I considered naptime a sucess.
And then I would back out of their room, still walking as quietly as I could…
And then as soon as I shut the door, the angels would begin to sing a sweet beautiful sound like none other (in the baby monitor, of course)… the peaceful, slumbering breath of your tiny one.
So, I remembered those wonderful feelings, and scurried out of there so Jess could have a little nap. But, can you blame me for not wanting to leave??
I mean really…
