I haven’t posted in a while as I was busy being pregnant and taking care of a new baby. Here is a new post inspired by that 🙂
One Month Anniversary
The past month has been a blur.
Days and nights blend together
as I spend all my time with you –
feeding, burping, changing, holding
you over 20 hours a day.
With disheveled hair and stained clothes,
not knowing if I showered or brushed my teeth,
no time to read or watch TV,
not truly understanding your needs.
but trying to keep my sanity.
I stare into your big, bright eyes
and watch you lift your head to root.
My heart feels warm and fuzzy
watching you smile in your sleep.
Today, I sit in this room with you
listening to music from the monitor –
like the ones you hear at weddings.
Time slows down,
the rest of the world fades away.
In this moment, it’s just you and me
and this memory.
