on mothering

Having a newborn to nurture is probably my favorite thing in the world.  I’m so grateful to have this beautiful child in our lives.  He has so much growing to do yet it feels like I have known him forever.

My pregnancy was full of whining.  Serious wah wah wah, pretty much everyday.  If only I’d known it was him in there!

Life is slowly getting back to normal- if there is such a thing. I went to Target yesterday only to forget my list at home and ended up running through the store at a runners pace as I was suddenly afraid the baby would cry his little newborn cry in the store.  I felt so on top of things when I drove there and once I arrived all I wanted to be was nestled in the pillows on my bed at home. 

Which is where I am now, and it’s very nice indeed.

G’nite!
