My adventures in marriage, motherhood and the military.

Sometimes I just want to watch my baby sleep. On my lap, in his crib, in his bouncer. I love watching his peaceful little face. I love his periods of active sleep. I love the rise and fall of his chest.
Snoozing on my lap at three days old.
But, sometimes I think I should be making better use of what little free time I have. I should be working out. I should be doing the dishes. I should throw in a load of laundry. I should dust the house. I should bake cake in a jar to send to the Marines.
Almost a month old
And yet, I just stare at my little man in awe. Feeling blessed to be his mom. Amazed that he is a little me and a little Den. Grateful that God gave us the most precious gift, a child. And I say to heck with it all...this is a good use of my time! There will always be dishes, laundry and working out to do, but Liam will not always be this little. I need to eat up every minute while I can!
