right now

Right now I am listening to you cry in your bed.

Right now I am holding myself back because I would love to go and rock you.

Right now I would love for you to take a nap because you are gonna be one tired baby.

Right now I am not sure if it is the teeth or the shots that you had yesterday that is making it hard for you to sleep.  Maybe both.

Right now I will give you until 2:00 to fall asleep, then I will come to your rescue.

Right now I am wondering if I should have rocked you to sleep last night because you are really struggling now.

Right now I am totally ready for our vacation.  Can Saturday get here now?

Right now I am staring at the monitor and realizing we are probably going to have to lower your mattress because you can lift yourself up on to your hands.

Right now I am looking at my little guy he has topped the charts for his 6 month checkup.  28.5 inches long and 19.5 lbs.  95% for your height and 75% for you weight.

Right now I am glad that I did not go upstairs to rescue you because you have fallen asleep on your own.  

Right now I am glad that you cannot remember these baby moments of crying when you get older because these are the moments I wish to erase from my memory.

Right now I could stare at your sweet face forever.

I'm so proud of you for not giving in to the crying! I think that's the hardest part is not giving in. Whenever I babysit, I have the worst time when I know they need to self-soothe, which some people are very against. Fortunately, he won't remember any of this when older :)

Oh my goodness, how sweet was this whole litany of thoughts! Love it!

I'm so glad he settled back into sleep on his own. It's tough to hear them fussing like that, but they really do learn self-soothing techniques if you leave them be so good job being strong, mama!
