all eyes and ears on him

With a newborn, I am spending much of my time meeting his basic needs of feeding, diapering, burping, and holding. Although these moments can get tiring when I am sleep deprived, I do understand they are precious and once the moment passes, I will never have them again. The challenge though arises when I want to occupy my attention on my email, Facebook, reading a book, or online shopping when I am seeking adult interaction or want something to do instead of just sitting on the couch staring at him in my arms. What I am reminded to do though is to remember how important it is for me to not lose sight of the fact that my baby needs human interactions too, in his own newborn way. When he is nursing or quiet alert, I need to put away these other distractions that hold no value and truly, attentively focus on him. I need to speak to him, love on him, and be there for him. Each moment counts. As adults, we need these human interactions too. We just want to be noticed, spoken to, and loved.
