I once read that after you have a child you never really sleep the same again.
I believe that now.
With three this little someone is always up in the night. I can't remember the last time I slept through a whole night without interruption. Right now, Cerly is the only one that sleeps through the night.
Audree still gets up to eat and Brylee wakes up often. Bad dreams, she sees shadows, she's coughing so much it wakes her, etc. She is just up a lot pretty much every night.
Ever since Audree was born Brandon has been the one to tend to Brylee and I handle Audree. That's our system around here.
Well, the other night was the funniest thing. It was about 4 in the morning and I was walking to the kitchen half asleep to make a bottle because Audree was crying. On my way, I look up and Brandon was walking back to our room...he had been handling Brylee in her room. As we passed each other we didn't even say a word. We both raised our hands, gave each other high-five, and went on our way!
It's like we were tag-teaming it haha. The next morning we laughed about it and how tired we must have been to just keep walking and not say a word. And the high-five thing was just hilarious.
Even though we don't sleep much, life is so so very good and I never want to forget these sleepless moments.
So last night I asked Brandon to re-enact our high-five moment so I could have a picture of a very funny moment at 4 in the morning. And because he is the best husband ever....he took the picture :) It was a little silly, but he knows how important memories are to me so it didn't bother him at all.
And I love the picture because it is exactly how that high-five moment went down! No matter how hard these days & nights can get, I would not trade them for anything and I want to remember them forever...
Our life is very very simple right now and that's ok with me. My favorite times are still our mornings, all cuddled up in bed, and taking turns loving on each other. I love that Brylee enjoys holding Audree so I can have some Cerly time! All three of them are still so little, and still babies to me, and they all need cuddles from their Mommy. So thankful God chose me to be that person for them....
