Each day with you is so special. Each day, you grow a bit more. You do something new. You look cuter than ever.
Each day there are so many special moments that I want to save forever… but they slip away.. I wish I could save them other than in my memory. I wish I could capture them to share with your Dad.. and with you when you grow up. But in the sleepless daze of getting through each day one day at a time, I let those moments go by.
How can I tell you how beautiful you are. How your smile melts me. How I just love watching you as you sleep. Or when you play. How I savour every moment with you.. even when I’m grumpy and in a sleepless daze. Even when you’ve bitten my nipples raw and still demand feedings – every half hour!
Yesterday, half asleep, half awake, in between feedings, you held on to my thumb, with your entire hand.. held it tight.. and promptly put it into your mouth. 🙂
These days you seem to be able to recognise me. My touch. My smell. You know when I’m around and when I’m getting you into position for a feed. You love being in my arms and these days often start crying just to be picked up.
Each time I pick you up to burp you, you wiggle and squirm and get into a monkey like position on my chest. Your feet curled up neatly beneath you, head tucked in, your small hands clinging to my shirt. And I love it each time you curl up on me like this. You dont do this with anyone else. And that gives me such a kick 🙂
