I am so tired!

My son is going through a growth spurt and has changed from eating every 3 hours to every 2 hours. It makes a big difference! I know that this is just a stage and he’ll be sleeping through the night soon but, wow, you forget how hard it so to function on so little sleep.

The up-side is that he’s absolutely beautiful and starting to communicate with his eyes…he will stare adoringly at anyone holding him! He’s incredibly alert and has a sweet disposition. I love him and even at 3am he makes me smile…I can’t believe he’s mine!

I have a son. He’ll someday tower over me and eat all the food in the house but, for now I get to hold him and take care of him!

Adriah has a little brother and she adores him. This morning when he was crying she says to her daddy, “Dad, can you get the bottle ready? Baby brother is crying and needs milk!” She is a little momma. I love it when she’s trying to comfort him and uses all the sayings I use: “It’s alright buddy,” “I know – I know – I know,” and “Are you hungry?” I am truly blessed by this 3 year old little girl.

Sometimes I blog for you but today I needed to write this blog to remind myself that I could focus on how tired I am and be miserable for the next few weeks OR I enjoy this stage, slow down, rest, and realize I will never have him this tiny again! It’s a precious time in our family. I going to choose not to complain today!

This blog made me cry…
it may “just be the hormones”, thanks to Baby Geier, but it may be that babies are amazing.

OK, enough of my prego blubbering.

Congratulations on your little boy!!!
Before you know it, he will be as big as Evan.
Thanks for the wonderful photos of Maureen and him.
Although, I have loved every stage, I wish I could go back to the stage you are at,
just for one day.
His Blessings upon your family…
Deb, Evan’s Mom

Great post, Noemi! I have a 3 year old son and 3 month old twin boys at home so I’m right there with you on sleep. It seems every so often I get hung up on how little sleep I’m getting and I start feeling stressed…and then I remind myself, just like you did in this post, that this is just a small part of their little life. And short time when I can hold them and take care of their every need and they will soon be running around, sleeping through the night. I can’t wait to see more pictures of your two beautiful children…your family is so sweet!!! Keep enjoying those little ones…I know I’m enjoying mine!

(P.S. My son is a great big brother, too, and like you said Adriah does – I love hearing him say all those comforting phrases when the babies cry!!! Adorable!)
