Fully Dressed

It's been 5 weeks of changing diapers, feeding a baby, rocking a baby, not so great nights, lots of extra laundry, not getting much else done, changing diapers, feeding a baby, rocking a baby, not so great nights, extra laundry, not getting much else done. . .

You know. That life adjusting to a newborn.

But then...today Drew looked up at me, his eyes lit up and a smile appeared!

It made me cry. My baby smiled at me for the first time.


And though I couldn't get it repeated for the camera, and though I know the smiles will be few and far between for a couple more weeks...

That brief moment was one of those small rewards only a mother can know.
