Oh my, you are here...have been here for almost a month.
Oh my, you have a name, a face, a hungry mouth and sparkly eyes!!
I haven't felt like myself since you've come, I have been living off 2-3 hour bursts of sleep, I have been living on another planet. It blows my mind that I have a DAUGHTER.
You are an arrow that we have helped launch into the world, ever since you were conceived, we have no control - you have come to flourish, to unfold into yourself, everyday a little more. There can be little attachment: the belly has gone, next to go are your newborn clothes. It's such a bittersweet feeling! I'm grateful things get easier as you get older, but it also pangs my heart that your little baby self will last so little! The thought helps me be more patient when the going gets tough.
