The Tricky Bit

The tricky bit with newborns is realizing that, even if you are doing everything correctly, even if all of their needs seem to be met, and even if there is no reason in the world, they are still going to cry.

It's what they do.

And, they'll occasionally cry more, just because they love you and are comforted by you. Just because.

Yesterday, some friends came by for lunch, and they had a baby who was around six months old. I took the baby so that her mom could get her jacket off, and the baby snuggled right into my chest and relaxed. Babies, in general, love me. It's nice to be reminded of that.

And, it is so important to remember that babies cry, and that that is okay.
