Poor Ezra is currently trying to cut FOUR molars! His gums are swollen to almost triple their normal size! Sleeping has been terrible because the pain wakes him up. I have to say last night he did really good. Two nights ago was the worst....he woke up almost every hour!!!!!!! I was so exhausted when 2:30 rolled around, I didn't think I could handle the lack of sleep. Then the most wonderful thing happened.......I got to snuggle my baby! Ezra is not big on snuggling anymore so this was such a treat! I laid there with him listening to him breath and the little sounds he makes while sleeping. I felt his little hands brushing my skin and his chest moving up and down. I so miss the days when he was tiny and he let us snuggle him. I know it is something I took for granted! I am sad my sweet baby has to go through this pain, but I know it is something we all must do. I am thankful for the sleepless night that I spent with my son!

That is awesome! It always amazes me how much we take for granted!! It's nice to get a reality check and enjoy those little parts of life, that make life worth living!
