Confession: I love holding my babies to sleep
I admit to holding my babies to sleep. In fact, I love it. I know all the advice. I know you're not "supposed to". They won't sleep without you cuddling them, yadda yadda. But here's the thing: I want to. Admittedly, it's not always convenient**, but they are babies for such a heart-breakingly short time. I just want to hold her close, breathe her in, and feel her heart beat against mine. I love feeling her soft fuzzy head with my lips while I kiss her little face over and over again. I love feeling her sigh as she settles into a deep slumber and breathe tiny breaths against my shoulder. I can't help it. I'm a sucker for my babies. I want this moment to last forever.
**I'm holding her right now actually, as I type this post one handed. Not convenient by any means but worth it, to me. Babies grow up. And you can't cuddle them forever. I know this because Audrey is too busy playing duplo to cuddle and soon she'll be even bigger. Kiss your babies while you can. AMIRIGHT?
