a new sense of time

Time is more precious than ever before. I now only get snatched minutes of time to accomplish something that normally I would do in mere seconds.

Depending on what is top of the priority list, those things could be taking a shower, making a phone call, washing a load of laundry, eating breakfast/lunch or more often than not, brunch, or simply closing my eyes for a 5 minute nap.

Life is full and often the days are made up of a similar routine.

It's amazing how quickly the time goes when all you do is ensure a little baby has enough sleep, food, and clean nappies.

Tai is beginning to be more alert during the days and he's started to smile and chuckle. It's awesome.

He'll hear you coming and start thrashing his legs and arms around wildly.

When you peer over his face, he'll break out into this humongous open-mouthed-gummy-grin.

You can't help but grin and laugh back. It's just one of those natural reflexes that you just do when a baby smiles at you.

This must be that giddy endorphin-charged feeling that so many parents talk about.

I think I get it now.
