Oh yeah...

...this is why we were on the fence about having another child.

The Newborn Phase

Don't get me wrong...I love Carter, he's cute, and wonderful, and *insert all the other love-y stuff I'm supposed to say here*

But O.M.G.

The constant cycle of diapers, feeding, calming, getting him to sleep...the crying, the middle of the night everything. Yikes.

I know I should enjoy him in the moment, and every phase is a great phase..blah, blah, blah...but I find myself longing for the days when he will be a little older - 5-6 months? 1-2 years? If that makes me a bad mom, then so be it. I for one, think these feelings and thoughts are totally normal and totally warranted given what a lifestyle change it all means! I can't be the only one...in fact, I know I felt the same way when Evan was a newborn too.
