Tonight Jeff and I debated who was going to be up with Jason. It was technically my night but Jeff said he'd do it since I'm not feeling too well. We laid down around 8 and I slept well until 11 but after that I was awake. I tossed and turned.
Jeff woke around midnight and said he had trouble sleeping too. I knew he had a big day coming up so I offered to take Jason tonight. Sure enough as I was drifting off, we heard him on the monitor. In my groggy state I wondered why I gave up a good night sleep.
My selfishness changed in an instant.
When Jeff laid him down for me and our eyes met, my heart melted. Jason gave me a big smile, and I thought how could I miss this?? When I look at his sweet face, it's like looking at an angel.
Jason fell right asleep after his bottle. I know I should lay down too but I just had to share the moment. It's easy to get caught up in the daily routine of taking care of a child, but don't let it slip away too fast. Enjoy the moment.
