Sometimes I find myself thinking, "I can't wait until Natalie sleeps through the night."
I mean, really, who wouldn't think that?
And after that it will be, "I can't wait until Natalie crawls."
And then walks. And then feeds herself. And then is out of diapers.
And I forget to enjoy the moment. I forget to enjoy her tiny little body curled up next to me while she eats at 3:00 am. I forget to marvel at her precious baby face and her petite hands and feet. Because before I know it, she will be sleeping through the night. And crawling and walking and running and growing up.
So. Deep breath. Relax. And enjoy.
