sweet moments

It's no surprise that I'm tired, and I look forward to Natalie sleeping through the night (hopefully sooner than her big sister did!). But at the same time, it is a special moment when you've just finished a middle-of-the-night nursing, the house is dark and silent, and your newborn is snuggled up against you to drift back to sleep. It is precious and fleeting, bordering on the holy. I look forward to longer stretches of sleep, no doubt about it, but I do want to treasure those times while they last.
