happy face

What I am about to say here may come as a surprise to someone who has not parented a newborn. Those who have will most likely nod in agreement. Here it is: little babies can be very frustrating.

As soon as you think you have your baby figured out, he will inevitably have an overtired, take-no-prisoners fit, probably right at the moment when you really, really, really want him to go to sleep. Clearly, I am speaking from experience.

When Colin gets a little fussy, nursing usually does the trick. I am a human pacifier more often than I want to admit, but whatever. It has been working. Until it doesn't and Colin is all "GET THAT BOOB AWAY FROM ME" and I'm all "WELL, I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT THEN" (this is when a good husband steps in and starts swinging the baby around like a papa monkey). Those are some frustrating hours moments.

And then this happens:

Adorable little happy faces make mommies forget all about the frustrations.

  1. Haha!!! This made me laugh out loud. We have had these very same scenarios play out. And oh my word, Colin is SO precious!! That chin!!! Kate and I want to come meet him soon. Maybe after you are out for summer?

    1. Yes! I would love a visit! A big baby/toddler/big boy play date sounds like fun!

  2. Oh my gosh, Colin is adorable! I'm glad he's making it all worth your while. :)

  3. So true! Anna has given me about three or four rough nights in a row, but those morning smiles make my memory of the night before a little foggy:) I love this post!
