Day 37: Diapers

This may seem strange but I'm grateful for diapers. When I'm home I'm on diaper duty. Changing diapers is a wonderful chance for one on one play. There is nothing better than pulling baby out of the crib in the middle of the night and changing his diaper before passing him off to mom to nurse. He gives big smiles and giggles and looks at me as if there were nothing on Earth that he adores more. That is an amazing feeling to have someone look at you so lovingly, with so much adoration. It pushes all of the concerns of the day aside, wipes the tired crabbiness from my eyes and makes me feel truly grateful. I'm grateful to be able to change diapers.
