letting go

Today, I didn't make the bed. 
It's one of the first times in six weeks that I let the house be a little messy. 
I'm learning to let go so I can savor moments like this.

I've heard that the newborn stage goes by so fast.
I want to enjoy every second.

Every yawn and stretch.
Every cry!

I want to hold him while he sleeps and just stare at his face. 
I want to read him books, even before he can see the pages.
I want to sing the froggie song over and over, knowing that someday he'll sing it back!

I don't think I'll make the bed tomorrow, either.

  1. Precious Jen! I think this is such an important message I'm going to try and remember it come July b/c I think I have to get everything done right now and your so right time flies and things can wait!
