As expected with a newborn, very little sleep happened, but that was ok! With my first baby I would have been completely stressed out, but with my 5th? I know that this stage passes all too quickly, even the sleepless nights, but as those pass so does the tiny newborn stage. So I banked on the fact that my husband was off of work for a week and that I would be able to catch a nap the next day.
I’m so glad that we decided to have our bonus baby. He has brought more joy into our family than we ever could have imagined. Having a baby, whether it is your first or fifth, is such an amazing experience. I spend a lot of my day just staring at him and thinking what a miracle the whole process really has been.
