I love being a mom.
There is nothing like it in the whole world.
My husband and I just became parents about four months ago. Our little boy, Matthew, is so sweet. I cannot get enough of him. My husband is just as infatuated as I am. Although I would not trade parenting for anything, it is quite difficult at times. I know we are just starting out, but there are still many things that are trying. The biggest thing is lack of sleep. I only sleep for about four hours a night if even that. My husband sleeps a little more, but he still does not get enough rest. I have noticed something that helps Matthew sleep through the night. He sleeps so much better when the house is cool. We usually keep the house around seventy degrees, but since the baby has been here we have tried keeping it at seventy-five degrees. I thought that the baby would prefer the house to be a little warmer, but it is not the case. My husband turned the thermostat down to sixty-five one day because we were having a large group of people over to our house, and we knew that it would warm up the house quite a bit to have all of those people there. We forgot to turn the temperature back up before we went to bed, and that was the best night’s sleep that Matthew had ever had. I kept the temperature of the house at sixty-five, and Matthew has been sleeping so well ever since. Even though I think that he may be too cold, I feel him, and he is not. Maybe it is because he is so chunky. I do not know why, but he definitely loves a cool house.
