Today started out really tough. You were so tired and ready for a nap by 9:00 am, but after many, MANY attempts it wasn't until 12:30 pm that I was able to get you down. And you woke up 10 minutes later, furious and in tears. As it turned out, I held you while you slept for an hour and a half, then brought you into our room. And here you sleep still. I get frustrated, because it seems so hard sometimes. But, as I held you I kissed your tiny warm cheeks and remembered that I should be so, so thankful for every second, hard or not, that I have you. I love you sweet Ben, oh how I love you. I am so lucky to be your Mom.
