"You're gonna miss this. You're gonna want this back. You're going to wish these days hadn't gone by so fast."
Not gonna lie, I can't wait til this fussy stage is over. But in a parenting book that my sister in law gave me, it encourages parents that with their kids it's not just a phase to get through but it's a phase, don't miss it. The other day Ivan and I sat down and listed out some things we will miss about this phase. I will miss long snuggles and cuddles. Our life is pretty simple right now, we eat, sleep, change diapers and bounce our hearts out on an exercise ball to Bruno Mars jams. I get bored. I get tired of the crying and fussiness. I resent waking up multiple times a night. But snuggles? They are the best. This morning he was having a hard time taking a nap in his rocker, so I pulled him close and we took a nap together. 😴❤️ And on the flip side, I listened to static on the radio for the entire car ride to keep him from crying... won't miss that
