There is nothing sweeter than tiny ears and a tiny nose, tiny fingers and tiny toes… Today our baby is 12 days old. She has spent almost every moment since birth in my arms: feeding, sleeping… being.
Her new baby smell and tiny features are achingly beautiful to me because I see not just her beauty but the moments I was too overwhelmed to absorb with our first. Truth be told I’m just as tired & overwhelmed as before if not more (juggling two seems harder even with my husband’s help) but I now know just how quickly time passes and I’m determined to absorb, enjoy & etch it in my memory. The sleepless nights will pass and before I know it we will be chasing a toddler and then a preschooler and then… well I better enjoy this time along with all her tiny bits.
Welcome home little one.
