The Pictures You’ll Want to Have

Newborn baby lying on her mother's chest

I woke up the other morning and found this picture on my phone.

You see, right now I’m in the trenches, the newborn trenches that is. That night it was my husband’s turn to get up with the baby, and after changing, feeding, and putting the baby down, he snuck this picture of me and my daughter (who crawled into bed with us at some point during the night).

Normally when I see a picture of myself that I haven’t posed for, I never post it and I generally get annoyed at whoever took it, but not this time. This picture was different.

These past few weeks have been rough. You forget how much work babies are and how exhausted you become, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Add two more kids to the mix and you just feel drained. All. The. Time.

My days are filled with changing diapers, rocking babies, wiping tears, cleaning spills, doing laundry, washing dirty dishes, and endless snack times….
