The Best Almost Sleepless Night of my Life... So Far!

On Saturday night, I fed Ben at 10 pm. He couldn't go back to sleep on his own so he ended up resting his little head on my chest until 3 am while I slept on our recliner with him. It was so nice waking up with my newborn so close that I could kiss his sweet forehead. I fed him again at 3 and then helped him settle in for a few hours of sleep. Moments later, we woke up to the sound of Jay crying. So Shamus went to calm him down but was unsuccessful so Jay ended up in our bed with his arms wrapped so tightly around my neck that I couldn't help but kiss his little forehead because it was basically in my mouth. He hugged me, kissed me, and snuggled with me until he fell asleep. And I thanked God for waking up in the middle of the night. Twice.

LOVE this story! I talked to Shame on the phone around the time of this night and he had a very similar sweet story. Though, in the "Dad Version" adding Jay into the BIG BED meant getting kicked and bumped and pushed for the rest of the night! :) haha! I love all of you!!
