The First Year

3:06 PM

Sibling love!
I forgot how hard the first year is. 
How tired you become. 
Sleepless nights. 
Half awake days. 
Nursing. 
Teeth and colds. 
Nursing. 
Loving. 
Carrying. 
Holding. 
Nursing. 
This years feels like all three first years put together. 
Nursing. 
Exhaustion leading to shortness. 
Changing diapers. 
Mind in a daze. 
Always hungry. 
I'm starving! 
Nursing. 
Nursing. 
Tired all day, but when head hits the pillow... Can't sleep. 
Nursing. 
Feeling that the boys aren't getting enough of my attention. 
Nursing. 
Changing diapers. 
Nursing. 
House not the way I want it, EVER! 
On the move, crawling. 
Into everything. 
Holding. 
Nursing. 
Crying when I walk away, just to take a sip of coffee. 
Just a sip. I need it. 
My sleep is not what it should be. 
Let me drink my coffee. 
Nursing. 
Nursing. 
Nursing. 
Sitting there thinking, I don't think I have anything left. 
No energy. 
No time. 
No patience. 
Then she smiles at me and the boys say, "I love you."
