I had forgotten

You would think I would know about this baby stuff by now, and yet there is so much I had forgotten.

Such as...
  • Typing is tricky with a baby on lap (and, thus, it is very easy to not email or update for weeks).
  • Somehow, this little one who sleeps so much still takes up most of my time.
  • 8 or 10 or 13 pounds gets very heavy after a few hours.
  • How quickly I can lose my heart to a stranger.
  • I think very slowly (and imperfectly) when I sleep like a baby.
  • How much my family needs me to be the mom, even when I don't want to.
  • How overwhelming it all can be.
  • The reality (and suddenness) of depression, even when it only lasts for a few hours or days at a time.
  • How kind the Professor is as he deals with an emotional rollercoaster of a wife.
  • There is never a good time to clean.
  • Little babies are divine right after a bath.
  • It is very hard to take only one picture of my boy (once I find and get out the camera, that is.)
Young T, back in October


  1. He really is cute. And yes it is amazing how tiring babies that just "sleep" all the time can be

  2. so true! i always wonder how i could have gotten so little (ie, nothing) done when they sleep for so long!

    he's a cutie!
