a meowing morning

Jon was in the shower. I was curled up VERY comfortably, smack dab in the middle of the bed, half awake, half asleep and smiling as I felt the baby kicking. ahhhh, this was good. Then I hear it, a soft little “meow” behind me on the bed. “Aww,” I think, “Finn is going to curl up behind me, it doesn’t get much better.” Then it was a little louder, “Meow.”  “I’ll just ignore him,” I tell myself, “he’ll realize I’m still sleeping.” Then, “MEOW.” and finally, “MEOW, MEOW, MEOW!!”

Stinking cat! It’s before 7am, I need to sleep! We have a baby coming soon, I need all the sleep I can get!! But I roll over and grab him and cuddle him and he’s so soft and cute I can’t help but smile.

Is this what it’s like with a baby?… In the middle of night?… Multiple times in the middle of the night?… Will I just smile and hold him or her and totally be unaware of the fact that I’m not getting the sleep I need?… Will it be like that? 

I’m thinking it will be even better…. someone tell me if my expectations are already too high!

  1. C’mon now, Em. You know the cat was there to feel the baby kicking!! I would have done the same thing had I been there…which I should have been.

    Good story, though. I totally misguessed where it was going – I thought you were going to say that you were just about to doze off into the most heavenly sleep when all of a sudden…BLOOP!! Good ol’ Jon’s out of the shower.


  2. What a great picture. Didn’t I just see an “instant”
    scrapbook page – journaling and everything? In fact,
    bits and pieces of your blog would make a great scrap-
    book. Wouldn’t the baby love looking back years from
    now and reading about your thoughts and such?
    Really cool – you may want to consider it .
