It Won't Be Like This For Long

It Won't Be Like This For Long 
By Darius Rucker

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all night
Layin’ there in bed listenin’
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It gonna be OK

It won’t be like this for long
One day we'll look back laughin’
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
‘Cause it won't be like this for long

 Last night was one of the harder nights. Lyla was not happy at all (Maybe because her Papa G and Chella left her for the night and she was missing them) We were up and down until almost 4 a.m. trying anything and everything to get her to stop crying. It was one of those nights where Jeff and I had to double team it-

This song often comes to my mind at times like these-it's not the easiest thing to wake up out of a dead sleep and try to calm a screaming child, but when you stop and think about how precious these moments are, it makes things a little better. I know that this won't last forever and one day I will look back and wish I could get this time back. Last night was rough but there was one point when she started to calm down and she just looked at me- You know I melt everytime:) She is such a joy to us and I encourage everyone no matter what stage of life you are in (with or without children) to cherish each second of life and to take the good over the bad...because it won't be like this for long:)

  1. You are right Jenny! Before you know it, she will want to crawl and walk and then run. Being held will be the last thing on her mind. Enjoy every second and every sound that baby makes! I know you are doing a great job!
