Not so long ago, you were a tiny little bundle of a human. Not so long ago, I could put you down in one spot and be sure you’d still be there when I got back. Not so long ago, you cried when I placed you in tummy time because you were stuck there until I rolled you back.
It’s 4:55 a.m. and I lie awake, looking at the clock. As it ticks over to 5 O’clock, I spring out of bed and rush over to my phone. I do this because I know that there is a ten second window before the alarm on my phone goes off. If the alarm on my phone goes off, the baby awakens.
