With the arrival of our new baby, I've taken a break from posting over the last few weeks! But when I came across this article, I wanted to share it, because it's something I think about a lot, not just with the new baby but also with my 3 year-old. Kids grow up so fast! As a parent, it's easy to get distracted by challenges, stress, social media, comparing ourselves to others. So my goal is to appreciate the small details: the tiny breaths, the funny facial expressions, the smells and sounds (well, maybe not all of the smells), the sweetness of childhood.
"Being mindful while holding a baby can be an incredibly gratifying, renewing and sometimes challenging mindfulness practice. Babies cycle through various states of being throughout their days and nights. How you are in relationship to a baby in these various states is truly a practice in everyday life."
