Let it Be

When your baby is crying and you know she isn't hungry or wet or tired all you want to do is hold her and rock her and soothe her.  But you know when sometimes you just want to be left alone, babies get like that too.  I discovered not too long into our weeks at home, that sometimes she just wanted to be...

left alone.

It sounds crazy, I know.  I thought so to.  But moments after putting her down next to me, she kicked her legs, found the fan and completely relaxed.  Babies can get over stimulated and just like grown ups, they sometimes just need some quiet alone time.  So don't be afraid to just put them down and certainly don't feel guilty about not being able to soothe your baby, because in actuality, you are soothing them!

Here is to a relaxing evening...
