I'm (finally) putting the finishing touches on Bennett's baby book and came across this story from when he was just a few days old. Enjoy.
As you might have heard, brand new moms are extremely sleep deprived. This occasionally has some funny consequences. The first week you were home I would let you sleep in our bed after nursing you during the night if I was too tired to take you back to your bassinet. On this particular night I heard you start to cry so I immediately sat up and picked you up where you were lying in bed next to me. I wanted to quiet you before you could wake up Daddy. I flipped you around to cradle you in my arms, but you were so wiggly! I was half asleep and terrified of dropping you since I didn't feel like I had a good grip on you, so I held you tighter and tighter until you stopped fighting and were still. As I rocked you back and forth, I started to wake up a little more and could make out your outline in the night. I saw two little triangles on your head and was confused - we had a little red hat for you with two triangle ears but I didn't remember putting it on you to sleep in. Then as my eyes continued to adjust to the darkness, I suddenly realized I wasn't looking at you in your hat, I was looking at. . .
