Morning is not my favorite time of day but since I've had Jax, it's been a bit better. I am not a morning person and thankfully I married a man who is also not a morning person. Everyone told us that when we had a baby, that would all change because the baby would wake up at the crack of dawn and that would be that. Well, for now at least, I am happy to say we have a late sleeper, thank goodness. Some days he will wake me up at 5 or 7 in the morning but he goes right back to bed after his bottle for another few hours. This weekend he woke up at 7, had a bottle and went back to bed until 10am both days. Talk about a great kid. Giving his parents exactly what they need... SLEEP. I don't mind getting up at 5 or 7 as long as I get those extra hours afterward to sleep.
This morning, my alarm went off at 6:50 and still no sound from his room. Sometimes that still makes me nervous but deep down I know it's okay. Jax slept through the night from 9-7. Amen! I love walking in his room to see him still sleeping and rubbing his back, gently waking him up to see him turn over and smile at me. Melts my heart. I put my arms out and ask if he wants up and he reaches for me with a sleepy smile on his face. Love it! And then, as he is still half asleep, he hugs my neck and rests his head on my shoulder and I just sway with him for a minute or two. Then I change his diaper, and feed him a bottle as we rock away in the rocker. I love how he flirts with me while he is eating. Then it's back to bed for him and off to work for me. I can handle early mornings like that. Makes it a little easier to do what I've gotta do 5 days a week. Although I do wish I could go back to sleep.
