Put the book down

For a while, early on in the parenting world especially, put the books down and read your baby instead. This was the best advice I heard once in the wee hours of sleep deprivation but I needed to hear it more. It is counterintuitive because when we’re new at something, we want to figure it out (most of us). The less “figuring out” you do, the better. Just be in it and keep moving forward. Life moves forward whether or not you read the book.
