Feeling Sentimental

I got a sweet letter from a friend, and it made me sentimental. So of course you all know that Isla-pants was a hard baby because I've probably complained about it umpteen times, but she is the BEST baby now! She is 4 months old now and I can't believe the difference! She finally likes to play on the floor with her toys and she'll even swing in her swing now! I love it! She sleeps 8 hours every night with only one 1-hour feeding between 2-4 AM! Wow! It's amazing! She is starting to laugh, and she sucks her bottom lip in and's hilarious! Anyhoo, I remember thinking this Brendan James song when it was 2 in the morning and we both hadn't slept more than an hour at a time in days. Things always felt better in the daylight. I wanted to post it in case there are any other hard babies out there:

The sun will rise, the sun will save me
From the night the sun will change me,
Change the way I feel.

I've had enough of the hard and harder
Times are tough, I've drifted farther
Farther from myself.

I won't dwell baby, on my failures
It won't help baby, it won't bring changes
I won't run baby, when all I want is to run
I won't forget the mornings sure to come.

...The love I want, the love I need is sure to come
it's sure to lead me, lead me home again.
