I've told Ross before I would not trade a good sleeping baby for the happy, talkative baby that we are blessed with. However, last night I ate my words because I would have gladly swapped babies for a night to get some sleep! For the past two nights, Owen and I have been up almost once every hour and I have no clue why.
I know, however, that life with Owen could be way harder. I am so thankful we have a healthy, thriving, baby. I don't have to deal with illness, hunger, single parenthood, etc. Having that perspective helps me be ok with a lack of sleep, but it is a mental disciple to get there. I know that the Lord is gracious to use this time to reveal things in me that needed to come to light and to teach me more and more what it means to trust He is working in me and for my good. Being a mom is totally worth every second, but it is quick training for selflessness.
