Sweet, screaming baby

2:21 am - Baby stirs

2:23 am – Baby launches into an all out wail

2:24 am – Husband has a bottle for her, and I’m changing her diaper

2:27 am – Baby is back down, as per our usual clockwork.

2:28 am – Baby launches into an all out wail

We repeat this cycle for roughly 90 minutes.

5:40 am – I’m up and out the door for an early flight to West Texas for work.

Thank God for strong coffee and a good husband. Or is it … a strong husband and good coffee?

Either way, I’m lucky enough to have all of these. As well as a beautiful baby girl who woke up smiling and happy. And completely oblivious to her parents’ exhaustion.

I’m thinking … maybe she was just reeeeallly excited for today. So, when she woke up in the middle of the night, she just had to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day.

But if that’s the case, I’m gonna have to get that girl a blog of her own. Enough of this trying to yell messages clear across Texas to her grandparents and other family members. Heck, it’s entirely possible that my uncle who lives in Japan might have heard her.

Happy Valentine’s Day from the real world.
