The More Things Change the More They Stay the Same

A little over a year ago Caleb joined our family, still can't believe it has been that long. I was fortunate enough to have my mother and father come and visit for a week to provide some support as we adjusted to having a new member of the family.  During those first few weeks the 4am "I am hungry" wake up call was the hardest for me.  I could get up and feed him but my brain would not function well enough for me to have any ability to then get him back to sleep.  Fortunately my mother is a light sleeper who also gets up early and she would hear me crying out of exhaustion because my sweet boy wouldn't sleep and I was in no condition to process what my options were.  She would get up take him from me and shoo me back to bed.  Every time this happened I would wake up a few hours later walk out to the family room and find my mom and Caleb asleep on the couch.  Well a few weeks ago my parents came to visit for a weekend and of course mom wanted to take care of Caleb as much as possible.  The circumstances are evading me now but I came home at one point to find mom and Caleb asleep on the couch.  I think it is their thing.  As I am writing this it is making me wish I lived closer to my parents so that Caleb could see his Grandma and Grandpa Larsen more often. Oh well.  Here they are Grandma and Caleb couch sleeping.
