I'm aware that I now post baby pics all the time. Completely aware. It might be temporary. It might not.
The thing is, this is what I do every waking second. And sometimes the sleep filled ones too. What you may not understand (or maybe you do), is that this little being came from afar and manifested herself inside me. Inside! My blood, my cells, my breath and my thoughts have all created her. And yes this story is as old as time, and you've heard it all before... but the feelings that go along with this gift are the hardest to explain. My heart is hers.
And now she's here, with her hand on my heart as if to say she understands.
She's learning to be human and waking me the eff up (in many ways) as we move (and sometimes trip) along this path together.
