Lovingly Exhausted...

Well, its 5:00am, I have not been asleep in my bed yet tonight (I did fall asleep on the couch during a movie though), I am completely and utterly exhausted right now, and just a few minutes ago I was filled with frustration. But now I'm sitting here typing this with one hand and holding my baby in the other, we are listening to a cd of the sweetest and softest primary songs (thank you Stephanie) and my emotions have totally gotten the best of me (cue the waterworks). I feel so lucky to be able to be awake here holding this healthy, happy baby boy. This is all I have wanted for so long. I am so thankful that Heavenly Father has entrusted Drew and I with this amazing little guy. What a blessing. So, this may be exhausting, but it is so worth every waking second that I can spend holding and loving my baby.

I was up at 5 with a baby too, we should have had a party! :) I'm so glad you're enjoying your time with Maddux. All of a sudden this last week, I realized that I only have a few more months with Ashtyn at home before she goes to kindergarten and I just can't believe that my baby is growing up. So my point, just snuggle him to your little heart's content because he'll grow up way too fast! :)

You're such a great mom! I'm so happy for you. You waited long enough for this, and now you have him at last! It's a good think to remember when you're at your wits end. They make it all worth it.

P.S. Thanks for babysitting my husband on Saturday. I know he enjoyed himself. :)
