Wee Wee hours of the Night
This week I've been thinking of great things to write about as I still get up in the middle of the night to feed babies. I wish I were a better writer and could really write how I felt. But for now I am going to make myself feel a little because at least something is being written. In the rush of everyday life I don't think I take the chance to just sit and hold my babies or even Liberty and Burton. Too often I am more concerned about the list of things getting done each day so my week flows more smoothly. As I sat down one morning to feed Cooper a feeling came over me that told me to just feed and sit there and hold him a little longer because this opportunity will pass all too soon. So in the wee hours of the morning I took my time to feed Cooper and then rest him up on my shoulder and cuddle him for a few extra minutes. Then turned around to do the same for Mack even though he wasn't screaming yet. I am so grateful for that moment even though I loose an hour of sleep. Now, Drew will know why I can't even hardly finish a prayer or lift my head off my pillow when he is saying good bye in the morning.
