Beautiful Baby

Jun 08, 2009 - 2 comments

My darling baby is as sweet and good a child as any mother could hope for.

She grins and chuckles to me and to herself all the time now.  She is active and inquisitive and bright!  She strokes my chest as she feeds at my breast.  How I love that and am loathe to put her down when I must go back to work, or sleep time, or something else demands my time.

Sometimes I lie with her on my chest in the evening, cuddling her to sleep - not because she needs it to sleep (she doesn't - I can put her down and she'll sleep without help - but because of the joy holding her brings.  I want to savour these memories with her and fix them in my brain so I can use them to comfort my heart whenever I wish.

Sally my dear, dear friend,

You couldn't have described the true meaning of motherhood any better.  My children are now 34 and 38 years old.  I can't even describe how I miss those times of holding them next to me and protecting them.  I will never forget the days of early motherhood, when I could protect them from this sometimes, harsh world.  It was hard to let them "fly away from the nest," when they started their adventures into adulthood and parenting of their own.  My 38 year old son, will be a grandfather to a little boy, on August 3, 2009.  Where has the time gone?

Enjoy your gorgeous child.  She is truly a beautiful child, all thanks to her mommy and daddy.  Can't wait to see what the next one looks like.  A boy perhaps?

All my Love to you and Michaela.  You both share a special place in my heart.  Always!
Heather
