dear rider,

Want to know a secret?

Although I would love to go to bed earlier than I do and not have to do a ‘dream feed’ anymore, secretly, I really don’t mind it. Not only do I not mind it, but I don’t want it to end.

It’s at this time during each night (about 10:30 pm) that it gets to be just you and me. After you are finished filling your little belly, I let you rest on my shoulder while I’m hoping that you’ll burp. But you are always asleep, breathing softly and cuddling up to my neck. It’s really such a sweet time where I can somewhat peer down at you, resting there on my shoulder. I can look at your little lips, nose, eyes. And I can hold you close and really take in the moment.

The amount of nights I have to do this with you is limited. You are growing so fast. You will be 12 weeks old this Friday and I can hardly believe it. You are doing so many new things and your little personality is really starting to come through. You are such a little sweetie. Very laid back and you still sleep a lot! There’s so many milestones that lie ahead for you and it’s going to come and go so fast.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s to try to take in the moment. Because once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.

So every night after your last feeding, although I’m more tired that you can ever imagine, I try to take the time to stare at your little features. Because they won’t be little for too long. And I don’t want to miss it.

I especially don’t want to miss it because I was too tired to take the time.

You are special, my little Rider man. I love you more than you know.
