I was Mimi all weekend.  My son and his family came over this weekend for me to help them with the baby.  I volunteered to get up during the night all weekend for them so they could rest and sleep.  He is just 10 days old.  I fed, burped, changed diapers, rocked, and anything else that needed to be done. It was so special to get this time with him.  They change so fast, he doesn't look at all like he did from even last week. He does look just like my son did at this age, and his head full of dark hair had a little bit of curl to it after his bath! I took photographs of him in several outfits, sort of a mini portrait studio Mimi style!! He is such a good baby, and has such a sweet and easy disposition, I told them just how lucky they are for that! 

 I forgot how demanding having  a new baby can be.  When I wasn't busy tending to him, I was trying to get my usual weekend things done. There is something about knowing you only have a 2 hour window before he will need you again that makes it hard to accomplish too much.  I honestly don't know how I would do it again if I had too.  I am tired from the weekend, but I wouldn't trade anything for the sweet tender moments I had with him in the still of the night when it was just the two of us up having his feeding.  So, I will go to bed early tonight, ya know Amy and I will be up walking at 5:45 in the morning.  We have stayed very regular with our morning walks, and I am sleeping better and have more energy through out the day!  A good night sleep tonight and I will be good as new tomorrow!!   Hope you had a great weekend!
