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.
