It's been a crazy busy, exciting long weekend around here. My beautiful niece was born on Friday and I couldn't be happier. Holding that little babe in my arms makes me realize how fleeting time is and makes me miss those baby days. Everyone tells you to enjoy how much they sleep during the days while you can but, oh man, I wish I could go back and tell this to myself just one more time.
Newborns cuddle, sleep, stay in one place, are there when you left them... it almost (almost) seems relaxing compared to the noisy, whirlwind days with a toddler. The days where I plop down on the couch at the end of the day and realize this is the first time I've sat down all day. It's exhausting. Am I the only one who looks back thinking, if I'd only known how easy it was?? haha, okay maybe not easy but different.
Look at how cute and tiny she is!
Congratulations Michelle and Adam, baby Norah is perfect and we love her so much already. I plan on being around for lots and lots of baby snuggles.
p.s. the exhausted tone of this post may have been influenced by the fact that Mike's been away these past four days on a fishing trip. ha!
p.p.s. Happy Canada Day!!
