Seasons of Life

I have a love/hate relationship with the kind of day I had today. The kind where I stay home all day and do nothing. I actually did get out and make a Sam's run (Campbell needs his food!) but otherwise we stayed in all day. I just can't really get around much anymore with Campbell because it makes my back hurt and really wears me out. In a way it's nice to be home all day but it also gets very boring. By the time Scott was done working I was itching to get out of the house so we all took a long walk around our neighborhood.
Bennett's movements kept me up for about 2.5 hours last night. When Campbell woke up I was so tired because I felt like I had just fallen back to sleep. As I was walking upstairs to get him I couldn't help but think that this is the reality that is about to be my life. I put my happy face on and accepted it for what it is. I made myself a big cup of coffee and knew I would just take a nap when Campbell did. I want to have a better attitude about my impending lack of sleep this time around because when Campbell was waking through the night as a newborn I was so grouchy and irritated by it. I'm planning on scheduling Bennett right away so hopefully he'll be a better newborn sleeper than Campbell was. Regardless, I know that it's just a season of life (hopefully a very short one!!) and I'm already giving myself pep talks and trying to get in the right frame of mind about it.
Besides, who couldn't get a smile on their sleepy face looking at this sweet boy in his cozy pj's enjoying his pancakes? Campbell eats his breakfast in my bed every morning while he watches his shows and I love it. Except when he smashes a blueberry in my sheets and I have to wash them but you know. That's life these days.
