Happy July 4 weighing in at 12.4 lbs 8 weeks
You are pulling your knees towards your body, individual fingers are moving, stubby fuzzy head, smiling, recognize daddy.
I left for a quick errand and while I was gone you had my pillow under your head and you rolled your head back and forth on it like it had catnip for you in it. The smell of me. Your eyes are growing bigger and you are a ravenous hot mess
You sleep peacefully next to a rippling lake
Lullabies all around
How do I feel about you?
I take care of you-diapers, feed, etc.
I will protect you-safety
I adore your smile
I haven’t let you completely in
Holding you at arm’s length
To keep a part of myself still
Afraid if I love you too much
I will forget all else
You are awake now
Eyes wide behind sunglasses
Toes curling and uncurling
Tongue tasting the air
A cooling breeze blows
What a wonderful way to begin a day!
