…this is why we were on the fence about having another child.
The Newborn Phase
Don’t get me wrong…I love Carter, he’s cute, and wonderful, and *insert all the other love-y stuff I’m supposed to say here*
The constant cycle of diapers, feeding, calming, getting him to sleep…the crying, the middle of the night everything. Yikes.
I know I should enjoy him in the moment, and every phase is a great phase..blah, blah, blah…but I find myself longing for the days when he will be a little older – 5-6 months? 1-2 years? If that makes me a bad mom, then so be it. I for one, think these feelings and thoughts are totally normal and totally warranted given what a lifestyle change it all means! I can’t be the only one…in fact, I know I felt the same way when Evan was a newborn too.
