The good, the bad and the ugly. But mostly the good. :)

It's really sad for me to say that tonight for the first time in A LONG time I held Sarah while she drifted away to sleep. Usually I'm so quick to feed her and put her in her crib to fall asleep so I can get on to the next thing. Tonight I just enjoyed her. Her smell and her sweet cuddles. The only time she's cuddly is at night and I haven't taken advantage. I reclined her rocker and let her lay her head down on my shoulder while she babbled a little, but mostly relaxed right into me. I totally enjoyed our quiet time just being together. It was one of the best feelings in the world! Ed said he does that with her a lot. I've realized I'm too rushed and worried about what to do next all the time, what I need to clean, what I want to do. I need to enjoy my Sarah more. She is the sweetest creation. For those of you who don't yet have kids, but want them...you're in for the best treat of your lives. It's amazing how much love one little baby can bring to your life. I can't wait to have more! It's truly fulfilling! I love my little family!
What I've learned while reading other blogs lately:
-Let Sarah just be, explore and make more messes- I'm way too uptight
-Slow down and enjoy my baby- Time passes way too quickly
