As he begins to calm down and the crying subsides he makes THE MOST adorable little coo-ey sigh-ey noises. I wish you could hear them right now, you're heart would probably melt all over the place like mine does. If only I could bottle those baby sounds for the general public. The market for them would be huge, I promise.
I lay him down next to me and he slowly drifts off to sleep, his face a dead give away to the ebb and flow of his baby dreams. It's a beautiful sight and I can hardly bring myself to turn off the lamp and put him in his crib.
And so in the wee hours of the morning although my body is aching for sleep, my heart is aching for those sweet baby noises. And while I can't wait for the day when I can remember what it feels like to get a full nights rest, I know these bittersweet early morning encounters will eventually come to and end. And I will miss them.
