with her very own smell and her perfect solid body and her chubby monkey thighs and those two little teeth she shows off when she grins and the way she uses both her hands to smack my shoulders when she is excited my baby fills me with joy. before i was a mama i knew i liked babies, i knew i liked kids, but i had no idea how my own children would win over my heart and teach me all new things about the power of love.
yes, i think it would be nice if she slept longer in her crib. but right now she is snuggled into her spot in her wrap with her head pressed into my collar bone and her breath warming my chest. she still likes to be held i think. she still needs her touch time. but today, i am not sure who is holding who. today, i’ll take her embrace for all it is worth. today, maybe we are wearing each other.
